Not Exactly a College Town, but It Manages – San Antonio is a great city but it doesn't match up to the diversity of activities that Austin (the major college town) offers. It has many great dining places and some restaurants by the school even offer students discounts. What hurts college students the most is that the city isn't much of walking distance. Everywhere you have to go you either have to drive or take the bus, which limits many students, myself included, to just hanging out around campus. This city has a lot of great stuff to do if you have the money and transportation. It could use more of the eccentricity Austin provides in terms of culture and great local student hangouts.
