I get the sense the military feel might be more in the suburbs than in the actual city, when it comes to San Antonio.

Ehh. I lived in SA from 1988 until 2015. I got more of a military vibe IN the city compared to the suburbs. It over runs the professional culture, in my experience. I very clearly remember getting the side eye when in meetings in the non-profit world when I denied having any military affiliation. It’s NEVER brought up in Austin.

Any recommendations for when I go?
Goat chops for sure, and just go multiple times to try different items.

Maybe we could say SA is the largest military town in the US.

The city has grown a ton, I wonder if it is fading. Honestly, I go long stretches of time without even thinking about the fact we are so “military affiliated”.

Still felt the military vibes when I was there this past weekend. It hasn’t changed. Especially at H-E-B with the MEGA ask to donate to veteran’s related non-profits throughout the store. I know it was Veteran’s day, but there was zero mention of it at the stores up here. This could just be my perception though. And this could be a plus for OP, we don’t know.

Default Houston Weather much better than Austin

Yes, moving from the cold would be a top reason for me. The further south you are the less likely it is the cold will catch up with you. I'm not going to lie, sometimes it can get cold here too. So far this winter its beet below freezing only once for about a day but then it was back in the mid 70s. Low temps right now are 40-60. I start my garden after Feb 15 for one of the longest growing seasons in the country.

Wife is a real estate agent. Let us know the next time you're in town and we can show you around.

Good luck.
