San Antonio

San Antonio,Texas - America’s 7th largest city, captures the spirit of Texas. The city has retained a rich sense of history and tradition, while infusing cosmopolitan progress.

Since its settlement in 1691, San Antonio has served as a cultural crossroads and a meeting place. The sounds, sights, and flavors of Native Americans, Germans, African-Americans, Old Mexico, the Wild West, and the Deep South are all apparent in this diverse city landscape.

San Antonio is home to the River Walk, the Alamo and the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, Marriage Island, and the Tower of the Americas—all within biking or short driving distance to Trinity. Home of the four-time NBA champion San Antonio Spurs, the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, SeaWorld, and Six Flags Fiesta Texas, San Antonio also boasts five Fortune 500 companies and the South Texas Medical Center. It's a city to both work and play.
