San Antonio, officially the City of San Antonio, is the seventh most crowded city in the United States and the second most crowded city in both Texas and the Southern United States. Founded as a Spanish mission and frontier station in 1718, the city turned into the primary contracted common settlement in Texas in 1731, making it the state's most established municipality.
San Antonio grapples the southwestern corner of a urban megaregion informally known as the "Texas Triangle". Straddling the provincial separation amongst South and Central Texas. The city's profound history is appeared differently in relation to its quick development: it was the quickest developing of the main ten biggest urban communities in the United States from 2000 to 2010, and the second from 1990 to 2000.
