Hello, my wife and I are currently residing in DC. Within the next few yrs she may have the chance to relocate to the San Antonio area. If anyone has lived there, or currently does, would love to know what the pluses and the minuses are. We enjoy DC, but the cost of living is pretty high. Looing on the internet housing is much lower in San antonio. All comments are appreciated.

Thanks

Scott

Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

Hi there,

I live in lubbock, TX which is pretty far away from San Antonio, but I've lived in Texas all my life. I've taken many vacations to San Antonio and I guess the best part about it is that there's so much to do there. The riverwalk is alot of fun then there's Fiesta Texas, Seaworld, the Alamo, and ect. I don't know how it would be to live there but it's alot of fun to visit. :)

We live near Victoria, TX.

I've been to San Antonio several times. It seems to be quite OK, if you can stand the long hot TX summer ;)

I lived in DC and currently am residing in San Antonio...definitely a difference. Its slower paced for sure but its growing, hot (yeah thats what AC is for). And talk about food, well lets just say theres mass quantiity of it. People are very friendly. It's what I say family oriented, as someone mentioned Sea World, etc.. If you want to go to the beach, its about 1 1/2-2 hrs away (Corpus Christi) then theres South Padre ( 4hrs) in which you can just cross the border to visit Mexico. Want a faster pace city theres Austin (1 1/2 hrs) and Houston (2 1/2)..yep theres lots to do! Takes lots of getting used to but it'll grow on you. Maybe you should take a trip down here just to see how its like,always low fares coming from DC or BWI. Good luck!
