Leon Valley is a small community in northwest San Antonio. There are lots of restaurants, shops and tons of family friendly community events to support the local economy. The area has lots of parks, walking trails, biking trails and outdoor activities. Houses are very affordable with great Northside Schools. Leon Valley is a short drive to major colleges, such as UTSA, St. Mary's, Incarnate Word and Trinity University. Leon Valley is also a 15 minute drive to Fiesta, Tx and Sea World. There are many companies nearby, so work commutes can be very short. The roads are in good shape and travel times to downtown or the airport are 20 to 25 minutes. The city of San Antonio is rich in history, with cultural events such as Fiesta and Oyster Bake filled with food and live music.

Of all places to live in the San Antonio area, Leon Valley is a great choice. One of the major roads stretching through Leon Valley is Bandera Road, which is surrounded with a plethora of major and small businesses, stores, gas stations, schools, and restaurants. Oh, the restaurants! Authentic Indian, homemade Italian, legit Texas Bar-B-Que, and of course tons of family-owned Tex-Mex options set the bar while satisfying the belly. Sure, the speed limit can be almost unreasonably slow at 30 mph on some streets, but the easy access to 410 and Bandera easily makes up for it. Leon Valley also has their own police force, which I personally don't mind because they seem to be an honest group of officers focusing more on "protect and serve" part of their job description.
The Great: I lived down Evers Rd in Leon Valley which is the best part of the city for young families. The library, cafe and the huge park were less than a mile from my home. The library was always hosting events, and we loved to spend our time there. It is the most family friendly area I have ever lived in.

The Not So Great: Every summer break kids with nothing better to do tag fences and signs and break into cars. Also, the local government is volatile at best. They've been making awful decisions. One of the latest: LV didn't budget for two new water wells. Their response? Take it out of the pockets of the residents. Now we have $100+ water bills if we're on city water! Fortunately, the city is huge on community involvement, and the Nextdoor community is extremely active as well. Unfortunately, things are hosted when most people are at work. Better get involved in the local government if you can!!!
