When you think of Texas, the first things that come to mind are cowboys, ranches and wideopen spaces. But while San Antonio — the United States’ seventh-largest city — remains true to its Texan heritage, it also boasts a bustling and scenic downtown core offering modern architecture and first-rate hotels, spas and event venues. San Antonio enjoys an estimated 300 days of sunshine annually.
