#2. San Antonio, TX:

Population: 1,328,984

Average Salary: $34,610

Cost of Living Rank (in a 1-100 list): 29

Average Commute Time: 22.5 minutes

Job Growth Rank (in a list of 372 Highest Growth Cities): 20

Unemployment Rate: 6.0

The second largest city in Texas (and on our list!), San Antonio has one of the most solid salary to cost of living ratios in the country and has seen the lowest change in unemployment rate since the onset of the recession. Its projected job growth is extremely promising and consistently high-performing, with plenty of opportunity in the education, health care, manufacturing, government and service sectors. Famous for its River Walk, the Alamo and Tejano culture, San Antonio’s tourism also continues to thrive despite a down economy.
