San Antonio is the seventh most populous city in the United States of America and the second most populous city in the state of Texas, with a population of 1.3 million. It was the fastest growing of the top 10 largest cities in the United States from 2000-2010, and the second from 1990-2000. The city is located in the American Southwest, the south–central part of Texas, and the southwestern corner of an urban region known as the Texas Triangle.
“From 2000 to 2010, (San Antonio) had the largest numerical increase (in population) of any one of the 10 largest cities (in the United States)” – Steve Murdock, former San Antonio demographer.
Many experts attribute San Antonio’s rapid growth to its growing economic stability. For example, the area had an oil and gas drilling boom in the nearby Eagle Ford shale formation. This and continued military investment are two big drivers of the city’s economy.
San Antonio has a diversified economy with an approximately $82 billion dollar metropolitan GDP, ranking 4th among Texas metropolitan areas and 38th in the United States. San Antonio’s economy is focused primarily within military, health care, government civil service, financial services, oil and gas and tourism sectors. Within the past twenty years, San Antonio has become a significant location for American-based call centers and has added a significant manufacturing sector centered around automobiles. Due to its diversified economy, there are many positions that can be considered “specialty” positions available in the city’s big industries.
An H-1B Visa is a U.S. work permit that allows foreigners to work “specialty occupations” for U.S. employers. A previous skilled workers program had hit its quota in the US just days into the application period as reported by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, prompting a lottery and signalling that companies feel confident enough to hire more foreign workers. The H-1B program has not reached its cap and offers the best opportunity for those looking to start a life in Miami, Florida.

San Antonio is a popular tourist destination. The River Walk meanders through the Downtown area. It was one of the first restorations of an urban river. Lined with numerous shops, bars, and restaurants, as well as the Arneson River Theater, this attraction is transformed into an impressive festival of lights during the Christmas and New Year holiday period, and is suffused with the local sounds of folklorico and flamenco music during the summer, particularly during celebrations such as the Fiesta Noche del Rio. Also based along the River Walk is the newly restored Aztec On The River, the only surviving exotic-themed movie palace in Texas.
San Antonio hosts over 100,000 students in its 31 higher-education institutions. Publicly supported schools include the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, the University of Texas at San Antonio, Texas A&M University–San Antonio, and the Alamo Community College District.
