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!

Alamo Heights is a very safe and incredibly friendly area to live. It is the one of the main reasons that I chose the University of the Incarnate Word, due to the beautiful community that it located in. I could not think of a better area to go to school and eventually live. I am from Colorado and have traveled around the nation and Alamo Heights is unique due to the mix of southern hospitality and latin american influence. It is a great place to live if you are a minority.
Alamo Heights is a great area in San Antonio with its own culture of people, restaurants, locations, and hangouts. The prestige of this area has dumbed down a bit in my opinion, but nonetheless you will probably encounter the typical 09er here and there.
