“In short, San Antonio has always been, and remains, a city of contradictions. It lacks the oil wealth of Houston, the financial strength and professional football team of Dallas, the political sophistication of Austin, the cow town relaxation of Fort Worth, the remoteness of Lubbock and Amarillo, and the aloofness of El Paso. But it attracts more tourists than any town in the state.”
