I wouldn't call San Antonio southwestern though. It does have some characteristics of southwestern cities, and more than the rest of big Texas cities do, except for El Paso. Things like culture reflect that region, though the architecture of the city is less Southwestern. San Antonio probably has some, but it doesn't have many adobe homes like the other southwestern cities do.

Austin is also in no way southwestern. If Austin is Southwestern, then Fort Worth is Eastern.

On a trip to Albuquerque once, I noted how different the area felt from Texas. Of course, I've never been to El Paso, so I suppose I could change my mind.
