There are plenty of fantastic cities to visit or call home in the State of Texas. From small towns to cities like Dallas, Austin, Houston and San Antonio, each with their own diversity and culture that sets them apart from one another. According to a recent Forbes article written by Scott Beyer, one city has been named as the best city in Texas.

To make this decision, Beyer relied on his own personal experiences within the cities. He spent time interviewing Texas residents to hear what they liked and disliked about various towns and cities. He found that many residents of other cities often call each other some negative names.

Beyer says that almost everyone he talked to had only positive things to say about San Antonio. Beyer believes this is in part because of the natural feel of the city. It still has that small town feel that many people have come to love, and there aren’t as many giant skyscrapers shooting up into the sky like in Dallas and other large cities.

He also observed that residents of San Antonio also enjoy spending time outdoors. Beyer notes the city’s River Walk as one of the best attractions in Texas, and calls it a “charming public space” that residents and visitors alike can enjoy.

Bottom line, San Antonio is Forbes choice as the best city in Texas!
