San Antonio passes Dallas as the second largest city in Texas.
Yes, it is true. According the the 2010 Census and facts published in the San Antonio Express News, San Antonio is now the second largest Urban City in the state with a population of over 1.3 million residents. But San Antonio does not have a larger Metropolitan Statistical Area(MSA) as Dallas-Fort Worth Area which has 12 counties with 6.14 million people, and those "Dallas Cowboys" in Arlington, TX. If we did have a larger MSA, San Antonio would be able to get a Professional Football team to play in the "Alamo Dome", which is hosting the 2011 NCAA men's basketball Southwest regional playoffs. However, We love our "San Antonio Spurs", 4 Time NBA Champions. "GO SPURS GO"!!

I am a native Texan, and have been a San Antonio resident for years. I never thought that San Antonio would over take Big "D", Dallas, TX in population. For years, and even now the military population was never included in those census numbers. Yet, we have seen tremendous development and growth at Joint Base San Antonio, and the San Antonio Military Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston. TX. San Antonio's growth was primarily due to the increase in the Hispanic and Non-anglo population. The housing market in San Antonio is one of the strongest in the country with a median sales price of $145,000. Look at our San Antonio Homes today!!
