San Antonio ranks as one of nation’s most livable cities

San Antonio has been ranked one of America’s Best Places to Live by Bloomberg.com because of the city’s relatively low unemployment, bountiful bars and restaurants, and great air quality.

San Antonio ranked 40th on the magazine’s list. The Alamo City would have ranked higher on the list had it not been for the fact that it had the highest level of property crime on the 50 Best Cities list, the magazine reports.

About 23.4 percent of San Antonio adult residents have bachelor’s degrees. However, an estimated 18.6 percent of the people in San Antonio live below the poverty level. The median household income is $43,087. There are also 386 bars, 2,675 restaurants, 106 museums, 12 colleges and 36 libraries. The city also has 17 park acres per 1,000 residents, according to Bloomberg.

Elsewhere in Texas, Plano ranked 11th, Austin ranked 12th, Houston ranked 35th, Dallas ranked 42nd and Irving ranked 50th.
