More Than a Great Place to Visit

Cultural Attractions and More

From the Alamo, where Texas soldiers had their last stand against Mexican troops, to the world-famous River Walk lined with restaurants and shops to the San Antonio Spurs lighting up the court at AT&T Center, there’s an activity to suit every taste here in San Antonio.

Market Square, or El Mercado, an outdoor Mexican-style marketplace

It’s easy to get around by car, public transportation or even via our 100+ miles of bicycle paths. Don’t forget to try some authentic Tex-Mex fare while you’re here!

A Prospering Economy

In addition to the many benefits of San Antonio, cost of living remains low relative to other cities, with low unemployment and a diversified economy. The family-friendly city boasts more than 30 colleges and universities, and San Antonio was named the 10th fastest-growing city in 2015 by Forbes magazine, based on job, population and economic growth rates, median salaries and unemployment data. And there’s great weather to boot!

Diversity and Inclusion

San Antonio is a diverse community that brings together people from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences.

At Baptist, we value diversity; it enables us to relate and more quickly respond to a broader cross-section of patients. But the true advantage of a diverse staff is the rich spectrum of individual talents, experiences and perspectives they offer. We’re far more than the sum of our parts, and we invite you to explore all of what Baptist and San Antonio have to offer.
