The overall experience in this area is beautiful and I love it. The atmosphere is nice and I would choose to come back and live here anytime versus living anywhere else in the country. I believe the area and the community will continue to grow. The city of San Antonio celebrates the historic events with festivals, parades, concerts, marches, art shows and Fiesta. It has historical sites and landmarks throughout the city. It will always be an unforgettable experience and event when visited by tourists. Our city is a highly recommended place for all to see.

In this area, there are nice people, mainly older people. There are not many restaurants around, but the ones near are fairly good. The school around this area is an elementary school named, Frank Madla. They've improved the school with the staff, equipment, and the school itself. This is a good area for families who want a small quite area.
Living in Texas - you learn that there are really 2 maybe 3 seasons. You get a little bit of spring, a whole lot of summer, skip fall and go straight to winter. Summers can be quite hot - in the 90 and 100's. Winter is average - especially in Central Texas where lows seldom get below 30's and highs are in the 40's to 50's on average. We do get the occasional freeze with threat of ice but few and far between. Most essential items for wardrobe is light clothing (shorts/t-shirts and sandals) sun-screen in summer. Winter sweater and light jacket.
