San Antonio and three other Texas cities made the survey's top 10.
San Antonio is the second-friendliest city in the United States, according to a recent survey by online tutoring platform Preply.

In the poll, researchers asked more than 1,000 people from the nation's 25 most-populous cities to rate the friendliness of other metros around the country. The result? San Antonio tied for second place with Columbus, Ohio, and Charlotte, North Carolina.

Austin — San Antonio's Northern neighbor — took home the title of Friendliest City in the survey, while El Paso and Fort Worth also cracked the top 10.

While it may come as a surprise that respondents found Hipster City friendlier than San Antonio, the poll nonetheless suggests people across the country think highly of the Alamo City's welcoming demeanor.

San Antonio's wide-open hospitality helped it land high on the list, according to the study's authors. Indeed, the city earned a top-five spot for multiple categories including Most Likely to Greet a Neighbor, Most Likely to Say Hello to People in Public and Most Likely to Guide New Residents or Tourists.
