For folks that call San Antonio, Texas home, the recent release of a survey comes as no surprise. “San Antonio was one of the top 10 migration destinations in 2021” according to real estate company Redfin.” The survey also noted that San Antonio had the lowest median home price of any city on the list and was the only Texas city on the list with a median price below the national median.

San Antonio may be best known for the revered Alamo, and the picturesque Riverwalk, the heart of the city as well as the number one attraction in Texas. But there is more, much more to historic, magical, delightful and San Antonio. 

This is vibrant city with a rich and diverse cultural history. And that it is one reason that it is a popular travel destination, and mecca for people looking for a new place to call home. 

A visit to the city’s museums serves as an introduction. The Witte is an internationally acclaimed institution recognized for its interpretation of regional history, multi-cultural dynamic, and natural history. Preserved at the Institute of Texan Cultures is a massive collection of late mid-century modern architecture created for the 1968 Hemisphere. Also on display are multimedia exhibits and living history events that celebrate almost two dozen ethnic groups linked to the city. The Fort Sam Houston Museum house a collection that chronicles the history of this pivotal military complex. 

The Texas Commission on the Arts recognizes three state cultural districts in San Antonio. The Explore Zona Cultural, the Old Spanish Trail Cultural Corridor, and the King William Arts District mirror the cities diverse history. 

The city dates to the early 18th century and established of a villa at San Antonio de Bexar Presidio. In 1773 the village on the edge of the frontier was named capital of Spanish Texas. It was also a stop on the El Camino Real de los Tejas trade route. Historic sites and missions are at the heart of the National Historic Trail, and San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. 

San Antonio is a modern, progressive city that is firmly rooted in the past as evidenced by nineteen National Register Historic Districts and twenty-seven locally designated historic districts. Historic sites of note include the 1755 San Fernando Cathedral, the 1749 Spanish Governor’s Palace, the Bexar County Courthouse built in the 1890s that was restored through the Texas Historic Courthouse Preservation Program. And, of course, there is the iconic mission built in 1718 that figures prominently in Texas history – the Alamo.
