From mysa.com:

The Milken Institute has ranked San Antonio as the nation's best-performing city for 2011 in its annual ranking of 200 metropolitan areas.

The city ranked 14th in 2010, and reasons for leaping to the top spot this year include military base realignment, drilling in the Eagle Ford Shale and the growth of health care.

The study noted that San Antonio was one of a handful to exceed prerecession employment levels.

Texas cities dominated the top of the Best-Performing Cities list, with El Paso, Austin-Round Rock and Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood also making the top 10.

This isn't too surprising since growth is practically a religious cult in our country now, and no where more than Texas.

And 8 of the top 25. Other lesser states (all 49 of 'em) should take note of this dominance.

If you want to be surrounded by buildings and concrete your whole life then Texas cities are great, but there is more to life than construction.
