Melissa Martinez

Melissa Martinez was born in San Antonio and moved around from coast to coast quite a bit as a child, always returning back to her hometown. After several moves back to the Alamo City as a child, she decided there was no place better and settled here after college to pursue her career as a freelance writer.


After participating in opinion podcasts covering San Antonio Spurs and NBA basketball, Melissa was asked by the previous San Antonio guide to write guest articles and restaurant reviews for the About.com website. Through the crafting of these articles, her passion for all things Alamo City was renewed and she was a natural fit to audition to become the next Guide.

By Melissa Martinez:

They say there is no place like home, and though I have no ruby slippers, after living everywhere from New Jersey to Los Angeles, I know this to be true. My love and deep knowledge of my hometown of San Antonio will be evident as you read these articles, which will guide you through life in the Alamo City and hopefully make you as happy and proud to call it home as I am.
