San Juan: A City under the Sun

Texas is in my top 5 states to live in. My time here was so much fun and I learned a lot. There are many cities to choose from but the ones that are my favorite are the ones that have a mix of cultures like San Juan.

San Juan has a very good cultural heritage. The mix of American southern traditions and Mexican customs has a crated a new and awesome culture. This is reflected heavily in the food. So many goods flavors are present and San Juan gets all the new recipes from both sides. The people here are also cool. A lot of older people seem to live here and they are sweet and don’t mind giving advice to the younger people.

The things to do in the town are fun and are traditional. The beach isn’t that far for spring break days. At night the city takes on those Spanish romantic vibes and the clubs are really fun to go and dance in. Overall San Juan is a great place with a great heritage.
