I have two job offers, one in San Antonio and the other in Nashville. I'm a white male in my twenties from the Chicagoland area, and I'm curious as to which one I should choose. Which one would I be more comfortable moving to? Anyway any suggestions would help.

FYI I will be posting a similar thread in Nashville's forum.

I will say that Nashville is so much closer to home for you. I am from central Illinois (farm town south of Springfield) and I am a loooong way from home. Nashville is just a quick drive compared to San Antonio.

I love both cities although I've not lived in Nashville. I do have family there though and have spent a decent amount of time there. Nashville is much, much more "Midwestern" as far as how it looks and the weather. But San Antonio? Ohhhh, San Antonio is San Antonio! There is no mistaking it for any other city. It's a fun place to live and work, always with something going on. Yes, the summers are horrid and WAAAAAYYYYY too long but the "winter"? Totally worth it!

Probably meant there are actual seasons. In San Antonio, we just have summer and winter (if you want to call a couple of cold hard freeze days winter, haha)

Anyways, I would definitely choose Nashville over SA if I was younger but I have grown to like SA now that I am in my 30s. SA is a bit more "home-ly" (read: boring to some) to me but it is hard to say where you should go without knowing what you like to do and your weather preferences.

I'm sick of winter. Why is San Antonio considered home-ly? It's the 7 biggest city in America, there has to be something more to say about it.

SA may be the 7th largest but there isn't much of a nightlife compared to Houston, Austin or Dallas. Just my opinion.

A sours game isn't considered nightlife. :-p

Nashville looks more midwestern as far as architecture, trees, the ability to grow grass...

San Antonio is considered to be a family-oriented city, without a thriving singles scene, or at least much of one. That said, I found plenty to do when I was single, including dating. I met and married my husband here and I was in my 30s, which is a feat in any city!

Speaking of plenty to do, we have some great museums, a growing arts scene, some solid music venues... I don't know about nigbtclubs or anything but someone here will chime in.

There are also some great fests, Fiesta being by far the biggest. It's a 10-day long, city-wide party that some people (me!) love, and others abhor.

We're also close to the Hill Country which is nice for the outdoorsy people amongst us (not me - I like my outdoors in the context of a beer garden downtown with live music...).

What else can we tell you?

Also, where are the urban areas of the city? I've read that the south town area is considered "hip."
