San Antonio has made another top ten list, but this time, its in a positive way, 1200 WOAI's Michael board reports.

San Antonio ranked number ten in a Pew Research Center survey that asked Americans where they would most like to live.

As you can imagine, this is a popular news item in many C-D forums. In one of the other appearances, I found this link to the original news release about the study.

Did not make this list. I find it strange. Perhaps people just do not do their research and only conisder the Riverwalk and the weather.

Compared to other Texas cities and the national norm, San Antonio's average household income and level of higher education is lower.

I wonder why young professionals would choose SA over NY with that information.

edit - I have however met many young families who find SA appealing for raising a kiddo, dad working and momma staying home. That is if Dad can command a higher than average salary. Their money does "go far" in that case - edit


I can understand the birds of a feather wanting to flock together, Republicans and Democrats wanting to move to cities that are already established as "red" or "blue".

Or maybe, as the article states, "By a ratio of more than three-to-one, Americans prefer living where the pace of life is slow, not fast. A similarly lopsided majority prefer a place where neighbors know each other well to one where neighbors don't generally know each other's business."

^^ first I completely missed that, oops.

Hmm, that is suprising too. With the internet, pausing live tv, 24 hour shopping - I dont know, I figured that most people - young professionals at least - would like a fast paced life style.

Maybe it is becuase I grew up in Dallas, but I find SA to be painfully slow.

Well, one of the best lessons learned is that everyone is not like "you" (me).

As long as people are happy, good for them!

In the article I posted, I do feel awful for those in Detroit...

...and I grew up in blisteringly fast paced NYC. I prefer the slower pace of SA as well. Time to stop and smell the roses. (did take my NYC salary/position with me though )
