don't care much for Texas...

but i love San Antonio.

Great City. No other one like it. Can't wait to go back.

Superb photos! thanks for posting.

mSeattle Nov 11, 2006 10:05 AM

Never been to a big city in Texas. San Antonio looks interesting.

Sacto Nov 11, 2006 10:11 AM

Awesome photos!

GreenwichSE10 Nov 11, 2006 1:07 PM

Nice photos..never heard of this place!

METALMiKE Nov 11, 2006 5:25 PM

PhillyRising Nov 11, 2006 6:11 PM

Much nicer than Dallas and Houston to me....

Ah ha ha , ok.

shappy Nov 11, 2006 9:41 PM

looks like a very attractive (though very touristy) city. I hope to visit one day.

OfCourse Nov 12, 2006 12:06 AM

Where is this at? I've been all over the city, but I've never run into anything that looks remotely close to it.

Great Pics! San Antonio has to be one of the most underrated and diverse cities in the U.S.

I was wondering that too.:D

Paul in S.A TX Nov 12, 2006 8:26 AM

Woodlawn Lake.

boden Nov 13, 2006 1:43 PM

Very nice indeed...the shot of the skyline from the corner is great!

Chicago3rd Nov 13, 2006 4:24 PM

Great Pictures of beautiful S.A.....thanks Paul!

WZ1 Nov 13, 2006 5:05 PM

i love it.. i wish i had the chance to live there for more than 1 year... and at that i lived in comfort,tx

Boreal Nov 13, 2006 8:49 PM

As far as I'm concerned, it's one of the most stunning cities in North America. I don't expect anyone to agree with me, but I'd put it 2nd behind only Vancouver ...maybe 3rd behind San Fran. I'm absolutely in love with San An Tone. :tup:

...it is so much different than "the rest" of Texas, which I as well am not a big fan of.

KevinFromTexas Nov 14, 2006 1:58 PM

Tecate! :banana:

phillyskyline Nov 14, 2006 9:58 PM

That Riverwalk sure is pretty!

Boris Nov 15, 2006 1:41 AM

Very nice spread.

But, is this really in the SA area?

http://i15.tinypic.com/2lj28vo.jpg

Boris2k7 Nov 15, 2006 1:49 AM

I wish I could have stayed in San Antonio longer when I was last there. Sadly, I was only able to stay for a few hours. Have to say that I like a lot of the architecture. :)

Paul in S.A TX Nov 15, 2006 6:10 AM

That pic is Bandera County in metro San Antonio.

Wouldn't put it past it. As soon as you leave San Antonio going to the west, the hills begin.

Boquillas Nov 15, 2006 9:32 AM

The above pic looks like it's from Lost Maples State Park, in far west Bandera county, about an hour from SA on hwy 16. Some of the hills in SA proper and NW Bexar county (the county San Antonio is in) are just as big. Here's a pic I took in Leon Springs, a suburb of SA about 5 min north on I-10, looking toward an exclusive San Antonio-area subdivision called The Dominion:
http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e3...s/DSCN2070.jpg

...and these are some I found on the net of I-10 and 1604, well within the city limits and one of the busier interchanges in San Antonio:

Paul in S.A TX Nov 15, 2006 3:26 PM

San Antonio'a terrain is also unique since it sits on three different terrains.The city looks different in every part which is neat.

Paul in S.A TX Nov 15, 2006 3:29 PM

I would say the setting in the pic is about 30 minutes away from S.A. because Kerrville is further out and Kerrvile is less than an hour away.

It is, I've seen that photo before and I know it is Lost Maples. I've never been there, but from everything I've heard, it's absolutely beautiful.

Wikipedia page on it. Lost Maples is actually 71 miles west of San Antonio.

WZ1 Nov 15, 2006 4:06 PM

I used to live near there.. the picture is set pretty close to COMFORT, TX ...

On another note, i was just offered the ability to move back to San Antone.. but .. i just bought a place here :(

Paul in S.A TX Nov 15, 2006 7:37 PM

Im not sure if that is Los Maples but the pic is bandera County in metro S.A.

Rayado df. Nov 15, 2006 7:50 PM

Really I love S.A. de Bexar... is amazing, beautiful... i was there on last July and i Love it....

I have some pics from this trip, when i have enough time i will post it...

Great pics!!!

BSofA04 Nov 15, 2006 8:13 PM

Great place to live! I love the pics.

Paul in S.A TX Nov 23, 2006 12:03 AM

S.A forumers any new pics to post?

Paul in S.A TX Dec 3, 2006 9:04 AM

Anymore Southtown pics?

LSyd Dec 3, 2006 3:36 PM

KevinFromTexas Dec 4, 2006 12:13 AM

Great pics, y'all.

Does anyone know where these two pics were taken?

This one of the riverwalk, where is this?

harbinger320 Dec 4, 2006 6:31 AM

That is the smallest, ugliest and most boring skyline ever for a city of a million+.
However I love the street level shots - those are pure money.
Nice and I bet the weather is great there too.

Paul in S.A TX Dec 4, 2006 8:50 PM

Don't see anything pathetic about the skyline.It does have taller buidings than San Diego or Phoenix.Hopefully with the new towers under construction and ones that are planned San Antonio will have a shiny new skyline.

http://tinypic.com/fkwhuw.jpg

harbinger320 Dec 5, 2006 8:45 AM

That skyline is crap, really.
It reminds me of what Erie PA or a small city would look like.

Des Moines, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Omaha... even Milwaukee or Indy's looks better.
The buildings are very drab, earth-toneish looking also.

But to re-iterate it's looks fine and dense from street level and that's what counts. I guess.

Paul in S.A TX Dec 6, 2006 4:07 AM

Milwaukee and INdy are no better same for other simillar size Orlando,Sacramento or even larger metro's like Phoenix.

dharper6 Dec 6, 2006 5:27 AM

If you're actually there looking at the skyline and buildings, it's pretty nice because there are such ornate old buildings, some quite tall. I have to wonder if the critic has ever actually been there (seems to have an ax to grind for some reason).

urban_encounter Dec 6, 2006 8:12 PM

Wonderful collection of photos Paul.


San Antonio looks beautiful as always.

Paul in S.A TX Dec 11, 2006 10:59 PM

SA forumers have anymore pics of Southown,King Willaim, Monte Vista, Alamo Heights ,etc?

Thanks Urban!

Mopacs Dec 12, 2006 2:13 AM
