It's such a welcoming environment. I hope to raise my future children here just as I was raised here. It's the perfect combination of rural and urban. There's grocery stores, urgent cares, and more at your convience while being able to drive on calming country tree-filled roads. The traditions of American football at the high schools, and festivals like Cornyval are just a few examples of the fun in the entertaining suburb of San Antonio. There's lots to do, even if it's not in Helotes, such as Sixflags and Seaworld are perfectly split in distance from Helotes making it an easy twenty minute drive to either amusement park! There's several theaters to enjoy as well, including some with bowling alleys. I highly recommend living in Helotes for it's great location, welcoming people, and entertainment. The people and the places offer a charismatic vibe.

I love Helotes Texas! It offers lots of beautiful housing options that are found in friendly neighborhoods with wonderful schools. Helotes supplies you with many places to eat out, shop for clothes and groceries, and parks or pools to hang out in. The people are kind, helpful, and optimistic- which makes for a pleasant community.
I've lived here all y life and I love it. The city continues to grow, but still keeps that small town feel. There is so much to do just in this small city, but its also in a great location, because of the surrounding areas. You can't go wrong with living here. Throughout the years you get to know and make connections with so many people who you will cherish throughout the years. There's all types of restaurants, bars, shops and many of them are small businesses. It's a great feeling knowing that while shopping or eating you're supporting someone else's dream. The people in this community lift each other up and help each other out, and honestly it's beautiful. The kind actions restore greatness in humanity. There are so many different opportunities for living, you can live in a nice sized house in a gated community, or you can live on acres of land that you own. The opportunities are endless.
