Supervisory Physician (Psychiatry)/Physician (Psychiatry) Joint Base San Antonio
Time to invest in some new footwear because if you're San Antonio-bound, you'd better show up in boots ! The Alamo City is one of the military's most envied postings and is often referred to as "Military City USA". Low cost of living, affordable homes, and the lack of state tax on retirement income are a few financial perks to living and retiring in this Texas city. A robust job market that seems partial to government and defense/security contracting ensures employment opportunities for spouses or transitioning service members. San Antonio is the country's seventh fastest growing city yet has somehow managed to retain a "small town feel." Quality schools and friendly locals (most with military ties) are additional perks to living in San Antonio.
Some things you should know before you get here: trucks are the norm (the bigger, the better), love for The Spurs (NBA) runs deep, the H-E-B obsession is real (it's a grocery store), rodeos are life, and don't call it "San Antone"-that's just wrong. The community boasts a vibrant Hispanic population, and enhances everything from the food, to the music, to community events. You don't necessarily need to speak Spanish to get around, but you'd better know how to say barbacoa, tamales, and cascarones.
Name brand shopping (IKEA is the latest arrival of note), restaurants, and all variety of entertainment all add to San Antonio's quality of life. SeaWorld, the San Antonio Zoo, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, and downtown museums are all fun outings for kids and families. Tube or kayak down a river, play or fish in the lakes, or relax by San Antonio's famous downtown River Walk. Museums, art galleries, and historical landmarks- remember The Alamo? -round out San Antonio's cultural offerings. Tex-mex cuisine arguably originated here, and some up and coming culinary trendsetters are making a name for themselves in the Pearl District downtown, alongside several notable breweries.
San Antonio has over 300 days of sunshine with some hot summers, mild winters and pleasant spring and fall seasons. San Antonio is in Bexar County (it's pronounced "BEAR") in south central Texas, and is just south of the gorgeous Hill Country. It's only about two hours from Austin, the beach, or the desert.
