San Antonio Beats Austin in Search Engine War


  • Instagram/3rdfloorstrings

It feels so good to be wanted. Especially by our neighbors to the north in Austin. While they're busy pretending they invented the breakfast taco and sitting in bottleneck traffic on the way back to their much-too-expensive apartments, we're winning the Internet.

A new web report by Trivago exposed Austinites worse than Kim K. ended Taylor Swift. In all of their Internet searches for cities country wide, folks living in Austin looked up San Antonio the most. 

But before we rest on these laurels, it's important to note that we were also the No. 1 most searched-for city in Corpus, Dallas, Houston and Lubbock. Dallas doesn't even crack our top-ten, and goddamn right we were our own most searched-for city.

Interestingly, Austin was nobody's favorite, and San Antonians searched for Corpus Christi, Las Vegas and South Padre Island before even thinking to look up what's going on 80 miles up I-35.

Check out the report yourself to see the digital truth and check out what Trivago uncovered as some of Texans' favorite secret getaways.
