Ok There has to be a catch. My wife and I have been reading these posts for a couple months now and have not seen one single negative response.
What gives??Can this be true??There must be some kind of quirk. No place is perfect right?
After 2 years of searching,mostly in Florida,We both agree this area,SA-NB,seems like the place we want to be.It sounds like Tayna Tucker was right.
Texas does sound alot like heaven. Thanks all!!!

I'm not gonna lie and say the entire metro area of San Antonio (including New Braunfels) is heaven or safe or pretty. No place is. But here, the good and great very much out weighs the bad.

Heck, even the gettho areas arn't that bad.

Most violent crime committed in San Antonio are usually committed by someone very familiar to the victim. There's not a lot of random violent crimes in SA.

Also, SA recently hired a new Chief of Police who has a really great resume.

Not perfect,but pretty darn close.Beautiful Hill Country,beautiful rivers,great people.It is Numero Uno on my list to move to once my wife and I are empty nesters.We go there a number of times a year,to Schlitterbahn,or just down the road to the outlet malls of san Marcos,which has another beautiful river itself.The traffic layout of SA is the most sane and efficient of anyplace I have ever seen,and the economy is very stable,with much of it from tourism.The Riverwalk in SA is special.Much of the area is a strange but very workable fusion of German and Spanish cultures.The names New Braunfels and Schlitterbahn are not just invented names for advertising,the German influence is pretty strong,and helps contribute some of the better parts of the German culture into the laid back Spanish culture.All in all,a very unique and wonderful place.

And the coast and Port A is only a couple of hours down the interstate,well within reach of a weekend trip.

I do believe as soon as we sell our place here in SC we'll be on our way there.The scenery and german influence reminds me alot of Minnesota,Where I'm originally from,just with out the bitterly cold winters and ya'll seem much nicer as well.Should have headed straight south instead of southeast in the first place.

Well,there's more people I am jealous of.

This is very true.

One of the most comprehensive urban freeway systems in North America.

and the economy is very stable with much of it from tourism.
Tourism does have a large presence in San Antonio but its the third or fourth largest industry in San Antonio.

1. Financial
2. Bio-medical
3. Military
4. Tourism

Great post but Tourisim is the 5th largest economy in San Antonio.
