San Antonio

Texas takes up a lot of space — on the map and in the American imagination. Some people are surprised to learn that San Antonio is the state’s second largest city (pop. 1,469,845), and the third fastest growing economy in the country — with much of the growth coming from healthcare and emerging bioscience technologies.
