Horrible weather, has some of the hottest & most humid weather out of any city in the USA. Has frequently reached above 110 degrees in July.
The place to live if you want to get fat. We have a total of 85 McDonald's (yes I've counted) in city alone, not to mention all the other food chains. Has frequently been listed as one of the fattest cities in the nation, right up there with Houston. Due to the extreme weather, it makes people very reluctant to go out and exercise when they have the time to do so (aka summer)
You can't drive for more than 5 miles in San Antonio without seeing "Go Spurs Go" somewhere. That's all San Antonio has, is the Spurs. If you don't like basketball, apparently you're a traitor to the city.
You know you're from San Antonio if you've been to the Alamo, right outside of it, but never actually walked inside (they have a walk in tourist thing). The majority of people who say how great SA is, have just been to downtown SA and seen all the tourist attractions like the Riverwalk. If you ever hear someone say how they went to SA, chances are one of the first things they will mention is the Riverwalk.
Construction is abundant, no, unavoidable in San Antonio. We have so much construction everywhere, that it's ridiculous. The city takes forever to do anything, and we've been working on the "new freeways" for the past 10 years, hell, BEFORE THE ALAMODOME WAS BUILT.
Immigration is a huge problem for San Antonio. It's one of the most immigrated cities in the USA, next to New York. There was a book written, called "The House on Mango Street" by a Spanish immigrant. It's supposed to tell the story about her life and all that, but it basically confirms every single Hispanic stereotype people give them in San Antonio.
The crime is ridiculous. Speeding goes on everywhere, there's extremely frequent murders on the news, and the lack of policemen is almost unbelievable.
We are incredibly behind in technology, but spend our cities money on useless things like an arena for the Spurs, just so we can pimp them out to other cities and say "Go Spurs Go" even more. Our technology is incredibly out of date and we are a very ignorant city in this aspect. Go to somewhere like a Seattle school, and everyone has iPods. Go to San Antonio, and the people with iPods get theirs stolen.
There is a major conflict between the Whites & the Hispanics in SA. When the Alamodome was in production, white people purposely got paid less than Hispanics, to the point where a Hispanic JANITOR would be paid more than a white secretary. On the other side of the fence, you also see major distaste towards Mexicans if you visit enough white homes on the north side. There's been continuous racism and counter-racism between these two races going on for as long as one can remember.
Yes, San Antonio is a cheap city, you can get a 1600 square foot house for about $110k on average, but because of all the reasons above, no one wants to live here.

I want to live in San Antonio Town.
I grew up in San Antonio, Texas.
9th biggest city in the U.S and growing. Located in southern TEXAS and is one of the most beautiful places in the United States. Very very humid but still worth putting up with. Known as SA-Town to the locals.
Great place to visit, even better place to live.
San Antonio be swangin.
Not sinking, but rising. Now 9th biggest city in US. Better than ever.
The 2nd largest city in Texas home to the Spurs and Tex Mex food, its a pretty cool city. The Northside areas are very nice and suburban you can find rich mexicans on the Northwest and rich whites on the Northeast. While the rest of the city is pretty much poor the Southside is alright but the westside and eastside are ghettos the west is like a border town lots of drugs and mexicans the east is like New Orleans sort of lots of black people and drugs lots of abandoned houses on both sides. San Antonio has a little bit of everything.
San Antonio is a mix city you have ghettos inside loop 410 and nice houses outside and loop 1604.
Ahh. San Antonio Texas. It's the second largest city in The Lone Star State, and it's growing! San Antonio is looked upon as a positive area, for it's large expanse of churches, large education options, and many inspirational programs. Most love San Antonio for it's shopping. Offering many different malls, the two stand-outs are North Star Mall, and La Cantera. North Star has everything. It even offers higher end stores such as Louis Vuitton. It is a good place for shoppers of all budgets. La Cantera serves mostly the higher end residents of San Antonio, offering many tre-riche stores. San Antonio is enjoyed by tourists everywhere, because of it's historical attractions, (like the Alamo,) and theme parks such as Splash Town and Six Flags. Also popular is Sea World! There's a little bit of everything in this town. While there are some lower-budget areas, there are also some beautiful sub-divisions, and a large expanse of beautiful sights to see.
