What do you wish SA had that it currently doesn't?


And make it somewhat realistic.

A disney theme park, possible, though not probable

an ocean view, not possible (minus a massive asteroid or a few million years)

Braums ice cream. Ha. What can I say, priorities!

An MLS team wouldn't be so bad either.

So many things. For me, more skyscrapers. Even smaller cities like Raleigh, NC look more metropolitan than we do. I personally don't like flat cities. Also a better public transportation system. I'm sorry but I find VIA highly unreliable. And honestly, more beauty. This is just my opinion of course, but SA only has a few really nice parts of town (i.e. Stone Oak). The others areas are plain looking suburban types neighborhoods with no real character. We are the 7th largest city in the US, and I don't truly understand why we don't take more pride in our appearance.

Okay and the girlie in me has to say better shopping options. I know we're no where near the status of NYC in terms of fashion, but you have the standard chain department stores or retail stores (like Express) and VERY few boutiques and that is all. So you're forced to shop and dress like a lot of other people here. Even Austin has some wonderful boutiques (for the fashionista in me) like Shiki and we really just can't compare.

I would just be happy with another major league team (football, or baseball) a waffle house, boston market and some snow every once in a while.

I second that. How about less pot holes? I don't understand why new roads have HUGE holes in them right after it rains.
