San Antonio Quick Guide
San Antonio is a haven for history buffs, and a great place to call home for the 1.1 million or so people who live and work here. Its place in American history has been cemented with the rallying cry, "Remember the Alamo!" making it perhaps the most famous spot in all of Texas.
In the nearly 170 years that have passed since the Texas Revolution, what was once a sleepy crossroads discovered by missionaries has now grown into the eighth largest city in the United States, with an economy that is driven by aerospace, agriculture, biomedical services, construction, government, health care, military, tourism and wholesale and retail trade.
San Antonio's City Hall maintains a landline-based 311 telephone service for residents to gain easy access to the departments and services they need. This customer service call center helps callers find answers to questions they may have about public works, environmental services and more.
