The population of the Greater San Antonio metropolitan area is over two million people, with approximately 26 million visitors per year. San Antonio is home to the NBA champions, the Spurs, and host of the annual San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. There is a strong military presence in the city, as it's home to Fort Sam Houston, Lackland Air Force Base, Randolph Air Force Base, Lackland AFB/Kelly Field Annex and Brooks City-Base, with Camp Bullis and Camp Stanley outside the city. The most popular attraction in San Antonio is The Alamo. Located downtown, The Alamo was originally known as Mission San Antonio deValero. A former Roman Catholic mission and fortress compound, it was the site of the infamous Battle of the Alamo in 1836. San Antonio is often referred to as the "Alamo City."
