    3 Quick Facts about San Antonio

    1. “Keep San Antonio lame” has been the city’s corollary to their northern neighbor’s slogan of “Keep Austin weird.”
    2. To prepare for the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, the same 2,160 tons of dirt is trucked in to cover the floor every year. The rodeo has been reusing the same dirt since 1988.
    3. The Alamodome has 65,000 seats, and if you line them up side-by-side, they would stretch 25 miles.
