Live Oak is a very small, tight-knit community. Everything is easily accessible, safe, and there are many opportunities in the surrounding areas. It is close to San Antonio, but doesn't have any urban issues.
Live Oak is a quiet and lovely neighborhood. You can walk down the street at night and be greeted by jogging grandmas, and cheerful police patrol car officers who work to keep our streets safe. There is a hub of fast food restaurants and Convenient stores that make it easy to get a quick snack, this is where the neighborhood kids meet up after school. There is a lot of new houses being erected due to the boom in jobs in our downtown area. all around it is a quaint suburban area on the outskirts of San Antonio, that is worth visiting if you need a quiet place to think and get good vibes.
