The location of some of America’s largest military installations, San Antonio is home to thousands of military personnel and their families, giving it the nickname “Military City USA.” Joint Base San Antonio combines the U.S. Army’s Fort Sam Houston, a medical training and support post, and two U.S. Air Force bases with important training and support missions, Randolph Air Force Base and Lackland Air Force Base. The U.S. Army’s Camp Bullis, a training installation, is located north of the city. Once they're posted here, many service members fall in love with San Antonio and choose to stay. So in some neighborhoods and surrounding cities, as many as one in seven residents has a current or former military connection.
Most people know San Antonio as the home of the NBA Spurs and the WNBA Stars. Other popular professional teams include the Missions minor league baseball team, the San Antonio Rampage hockey team, and the San Antonio FC soccer team. The nearby Circuit of the Americas road racing course hosts IMSA and Le Mans endurance races and Formula 1 grand prix events. In addition to spectator sports, the San Antonio region is home to over 50 golf courses, including world-famous courses designed with help from PGA greats Arnold Palmer and Greg Norman, and hosts a PGA TOUR event, the Valero Texas Open.
The San Antonio area is dotted with parks, playgrounds, sports complexes, nature trails, and theme parks including Sea World San Antonio (the largest marine life adventure park in the world) and Six Flags Fiesta Texas, the region's destination for musical shows and thrill rides. Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort is the most popular summertime waterpark in the U.S. Opened in 1919, America’s oldest amusement park for children, Kiddie Park, offers old-fashioned rides and modern amenities.

Founded in 1718, San Antonio de Béxar—the settlement that became modern-day San Antonio—still offers glimpses into America’s Spanish colonial heritage. But San Antonio’s history begins centuries before the arrival of Spanish Conquistadors with the Coahuiltecans, about 200 small, independent bands of hunter-gatherers who lived in the area for over 10,000 years. The San Antonio area was the historic home of the Caddo tribe of Coahuiltecans. The Spanish spelling of the Caddoan word for “friend,” “taysha,” gave Texas its name. And one of the Indian missions founded by the Spaniards, San Antonio de Valero, eventually became known as The Alamo: the site of the legendary 1836 battle during the Texas Revolution. Though The Alamo had been secularized by the time of the battle, the nearby San Fernando Cathedral—the oldest cathedral in the U.S.—still welcomes Catholics to mass every week. Several communities north of San Antonio were settled in the following decades by German immigrants who were inspired by the successful Texas Revolution, and fled wars and political persecution in Europe to try for a new life in the New World.
