San Antonio Map & City Guide

If you ask any Texas tourist about what they would find on a San Antonio map, at least one of two things will certainly come to mind. It is certainly hard to forget the Alamo ever since Sam Houston’s battle cry went down in our great state’s history.

The other is the Riverwalk which is well-tread by locals and visitors alike. But any San Antonian will tell you that besides the lovely Riverwalk, there are many places worth strolling in this great city. Home to almost 1.5 million residents, San Antonio is also home to two Southern Careers Institute campuses—affectionately known as ‘SCI North’ and ‘SCI South’, respectively.

As you might imagine in one of the top 3 largest cities in the great state of Texas, San Antonio is comprised by neighborhoods that have their own look and feel. Historically, more infrastructure and investment in business and commerce was put in place in the northside of town, while the South was thought to be more diverse and included rural housing developments and historical relics including the Mission Concepción.

If you are simply visiting or looking to move, San Antonio, is a rapidly changing and expanding city with tons to see, eat and do all over. Thankfully, we leaned on our very own SCI North and South staff members to give us their top picks for getting down and around San Antonio.

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”

Annette D.
Business Accounting

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
