Walk back in time to colonial Spanish days at one of San Antonio's five 18th-century missions that spread European culture and converted the native people to Christianity— forever changing the face of the Southwest. Wander the streets of La Villita , one of the first Spanish settlements, and later home to German and French pioneers. Or head to the King William neighborhood , a national historic district lined with impressive restored homes. Sit at the bar in the Menger Hotel where Teddy Roosevelt recruited his "Rough Riders" years before. See where Texas' history begins, in San Antonio.

Welcome to the City of San Antonio's Economic Development Department (EDD) portal. We are excited to share with you a few highlights and links that will help you stay connected to economic development in San Antonio.

San Antonio enjoys a diverse industry portfolio that continues to strengthen and build upon the city's historic economic base. Once primarily steeped in military and hospitality industry investment, more diverse industry strengths have emerged in recent years, making San Antonio one of the most recession resistant economies in the country.
