I love the fact that I can always find something to do no matter what day or time. People may call Houston "the sprawling Texas town" but I love spending my days in it's historic neighbourhoods where you can find entertainment from morning till night without having to drive. I also love striking up conversations with fellow Houstonians whether it be in a pub or record store. They have got the best stories.
My mother and her 5 siblings were all born and raised in San Antonio or San Antone, which is what they refer to the city as. Going back there was always a celebratory event. I've spent just as much time exploring the city as I have my own hometown of Houston. That's why it's my second home. The thing I love about San Antonio is the "familia" attitude that seems to come as second nature to the residents. Everyone goes out of their way to make you feel welcome, and they always want you to embrace the culture, which is proudly on display in every inch of the city. The city also offers a wide vary of activities for all ages and even jumping in the car and exploring the nearby towns, located as close as 20 minutes away, can make for a nice break from the city life.
