I really like the community and how close the stores are. However, the roads are horrible and there are potholes everywhere. Especially on Vandiver and Rittiman.
Review Alamo Heights
I recently moved to Alamo Heights and it is a cute quaint suburb of San Antonio. It feels like a close knit community. Central Market is really great for any grocery shopping. Broadway has a lot of cute boutiques and not to forget Brackenridge Park.
Nice community. Everything is close and convenient. Good schools. Housing is expensive and old/need renovation.
