I moved to Alamo Heights when I was 7 years old and have loved it ever since. Although it can sometimes match its stereotype of a privileged, white neighborhood, I've had so many great experiences here from the amazing AHHS to late night HEB runs. There is so much to do and everything is so conveniently close. Love it!
It is very pretty, especially around Christmas time, and has very good restaurants. The community as a whole is very active in the mornings and on weekends. The high school sports are very entertaining and the teams always do well in their seasons.
