OK, so there's 100 towns listed; but at least we made the list!

San Antonio, Texas, America's Best Adventure Towns -- National Geographic

Austin’s not the only Hill Country hub worth considering. Now that San Antonio is sprucing up its eponymous river—with waterfront hiking and biking trails, canoe races, and cafés—the city is regaining some of its Alamo-era swagger.
Outside city limits, hikers can wander through 8,624 acres (3,490 hectares) of mountain laurel and Spanish moss in Government Canyon State Natural Area. Road cyclists head northwest to the wildflower-flecked hills. And in the heat of the Lone Star State summers, a new crop of vineyards and a handful of brewpubs (Blue Star gets our vote) are just a pedal away.

Cheers! M2

SSSHHHHHHH!!!!!! Keep it a secret. We don't really want to be overrun with tourists. Keep it to ourselves. Let them go to the Alamo and we (locals) can enjoy the rest of the river and the natural beauty of the area.
Actually, I guess it's too late.

I love Government Canyon. The back country hike is awesome once you get past the darned rocky part of the old stage road. Lots of wildlife and there's a few protected old structures if you're into that kind of thing.
