Great walkable, public transit neighborhood. Houses are average 50s-60s and with mature trees. I recommend Woodlawn Lake/ Jefferson and Monticello Park neighbors. I feel safe walking solo.

San Antonio is a growing city and Bexar is a growing county! It's pretty much always warm or at least CLOSE TO IT here...we're not that far from the beach, the border, or Austin. So, needs are easily met - minus the traffic that people complain about in most big cities like Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth or Houston. There are plenty of job opportunities with the oil industry being active in south Texas - as well as technology and various other industries.
Could be much better...come on, we don't even have a Waffle House here! In addition to that, we don't have very many late-night food options except for Jim's or Mama Margie's (but there is a reputation of crime including murders and assaults at Mama Margie's - Chacho's doesn't have a much better reputation). Favorite things are nearby restaurants - the abundance of taquerias! Plenty of Tex Mex food to go around!
