Fort Sam Houston Housing

The seventh largest city in the United States, San Antonio is filled with things to see and do. Known as “Military City, USA,” it houses five local military installations and shares a great relationship with the military community. The affectionately dubbed “Fort Sam” has a rich history that dates back more than 170 years. Named for General Sam Houston, a hero in the Texas Revolution of 1836, it houses some of the oldest historical structures on any Army installation. San Antonio boasts 300 days of sunshine a year with warm summers, mild winters and near-perfect temperatures throughout the spring and fall.

The city features world-class parks such as Brackenridge Park, the San Antonio Zoo and Eagle miniature train, as well as golf courses, art galleries, museums and cultural centers.
