I haven't been to San Antonio, but you can probably pick up a place to live for 200 grand which is absolute peanuts compared to the above, so if I am neither of the above in economic conditions I'd consider San Antonio.

The comparison is across three very different economic requirements to thrive (i.e., comfortably afford a place, a car, and entertainment/dining) and should be the primary consideration...
... and may I add three different countries. Choosing a place to live for me, the country really matters if my plan is a lifetime one.
