You can’t ‒‒ seriously, can’t ‒‒ get a better, more diverse menu in Texas than in San Antonio. There is, really, everything here. If you want to get a quick bite, done. If you want to impress your date, you will. It’s a cultural smorgasbord of restaurants and cuisines.
Even outside the Alamo, San Antonio is soaked in Spanish, French, Mexican, and American history. For example, the San Fernando Cathedral is the oldest church in the state of Texas and the oldest cathedral in the United States, and it’s on the Riverwalk. Take a tour of the missions, see centuries-old homes, and bask in the historical appeal of the city.

San Antonio doesn’t have a subway, but being in the Hill Country means the city has incredible caverns to explore. The Natural Bridge Caverns is the largest network of caves in the state. And here’s an added bonus, no matter how hot it gets on the surface (and it can get really hot) the caves are always 70 degrees.
Healthy Real Estate
