Universal City Reviews
My family moved to Universal City when I was about 13. I was hesitant at first to move into an area that was a little it older and quainter area at first but overall I've come to enjoy the city. The community is truly what makes the suburb so unique. My neighbors are all very peachy and although most are older, they are all exuberate that of a Carl and Ellie character from UP(before all the bad thongs happened in that movie of course). Aside from our outlet mall, the activities in my city are all very down to earth and homely. The dog park, for instance, is one of the best places for the lovers in the great American past time of looking at dogs and going "aw". The community pool in my neighborhood as well as provided countless memories over the past 3 years for me and my siblings so of me living in Universal City, I've come to realize how lucky I am to live in a city as blissful and peaceful as this one.
It's got a pretty nice park. A couple years back they also added a dog park, which could use some improvements but is still really nice to have. I think it just needs more funding/donations. The area some nice restaurants depending on what you're into and how high your standards are. It's also pretty close to the base so if you're a military family it's pretty convenient. The schools in universal city and in the surrounding areas (UC, Live Oak, etc kind of blend together) are nice for the most part. I'm probably not making it sound all that great, but having grown up here I can tell you that it's a pretty nice place.
Universal City is a great place to live! It has all the restaurants and stores that you need all within a small area. Safe and friendly, and located conveniently to San Antonio, New Braunfels, and San Marcos.
