In the early part of this century there has been a push by almost every large city to rejuvenate their urban centers and make them better places to live and work. San Antonio is a city that got this equation right. Downtown San Antonio has transformed into a vibrant and active place to explore, eat, shop, relax, and see performance arts in close proximity to historic sites and parks.
Downtown San Antonio is pedestrian- and bike-friendly and you are always close to an interesting attraction. Segways and boats are also an option for navigating downtown. Condos and apartments mix with theaters, cafes, and hip boutiques. There are a number of museums, and the historic River Walk is always nearby.
Parking is abundant and hassle-free and city maps are located every few blocks marking your current location and the popular attractions the city has to offer. You are never far from a great restaurant, and chances are good you'll see a public street performance or art on display.
