My house was right next to beautiful hiking trails and a park. The community even planted our own vegetable garden!

Living in Alamo Heights is great because you never have to travel far to reach your necessities. There's an H-E-B, Central Market, and Walgreens all within 5 mile radius. The Quarry Village is also one of my favorite places.
It's Texas, so if you weren't used to the weather, you'd probably complain about how hot it is. I have lived here my whole life so I have no problem with it. Alamo Heights is however in a very low area so floods sometimes occur.
