10 Best Places to Live on $100 a Day

All the ingredients for a rich retirement — at a fraction of the cost

San Antonio

Vibe: Old West urban flair

Sunny days per year: 263

Median home price: $135,000

Forget the Alamo — just remember that while a lot of Texas cities have boomed in the past few decades, San Antonio has somehow managed to grow while still embracing its image as a sleepy tourist town.

Per capita, San Antonio has five times as many libraries and museums as Austin; seven times as many as Houston. The city's new bike share program lets you pedal all over town for $10 a day — a nice way to head down to El Mercado in Old Market Square, reputedly the biggest Mexican marketplace outside Mexico. And of course there's the famous San Antonio River Walk and its endless selection of restaurants with patio dining.

Besides the cost of living, the price of fun is less in San Antonio, too. You'll pay as little as $40 at a high-end golf course on weekends, and locals can buy $59 season passes to the Six Flags Fiesta Texas theme park.
