Here at Tacara at Westover Hills, we love celebrating this great home we share. Whether you’re new to the area or were born and raised here in the Alamo City, we’ve got some interesting tidbits you may not know about San Antonio.
We’re Kind of a Big Deal
San Antonio is one of, if not the most, visited cities in Texas, according to Culture Trip. With local attractions like the Alamo, the River Walk, the Natural Bridge Caverns, the Japanese Tea Garden, and the third largest zoo in the U.S., it’s easy to see why! As the second-biggest city in our great state, there is much to explore and experience. Best of all, it’s all close by!
It’s no secret that San Antonio is renowned for its diverse culture and heritage. But what you may not know is that the city is home to the largest Mexican market in the country. Featuring more than 100 locally owned shops, stalls, and restaurants, the Historic Market Square is the perfect place to enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine, discover handcrafted artwork, and more.
Home of the Fritos
Did you know Fritos were created in San Antonio? Well, now you do. We wonder if this creepy Frito Kid animatronic was created here as well. Maybe that’s a mystery that isn’t worth solving.
A Bat’s Paradise
Head to the northern outskirts of San Antonio to find the largest bat colony in the world. Bracken Cave is home to more than 15 million Mexican free-tailed bats. The site is a preserve for many bird species as well, including the endangered golden-cheeked warblers. We’re fortunate to have this ecological treasure here in San Antonio!
