San Antonio is as comfortable as an old pair of jeans. It offers big-city amenities and world-renowned attractions coupled with a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.I don't know anyone under the age of 40 that wears jeans anymore, but okay. The report continues:
San Antonio offers more than 50 major events and festivals throughout the year, including the Ford Holiday River Parade and Lighting Ceremony, the Texas Folklife Festival and the famous Fiesta, a spirited 10-day salute to the Spanish heritage with numerous events citywide.The Spanish heritage? While most San Antonians don't reflect on the inspiration behind Fiesta (because who wants to think of war when slamming back beer and chicken-on-a-stick?), I'm pretty sure Fiesta has nothing to do with the Spanish heritage. It all began to "honor the heroes" of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto.
