My husband and I are moving to San Antonio in February and have no idea where to begin looking for places to live. I'm from Columbus Ohio and love the city but would like to live in a neighborhood where I can walk to things like shopping and entertainment. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

I personally, along with my family, are trying as hard as we can to get the hell out of here. I was born and raised here, and unfortunately, it is no where near the same as it was years ago. I am sad that my hometown has become what it has become. No side of town is safe anymore.

Your best bet is to live outside of the city. Try Boerne, New Braunfels, Cibolo, Schertz, etc...

I lived in New Braunfels for a couple of years. I liked it very much. Yes, it does get crowded during the summer. That's the only downside. As for the rivers flooding, there's not much you can do about that, except not live near the rivers. Other than that, I think NB is a great town.

Alamo Heights is a wonderful Place, or the Medical Center Area of San Antonio, you will also love the greatness of the Weather here. I moved here from New Jersey and, trust me I have never looked back.

I must warn you that the "Menatality" here is quite slower and the People drive like turtles but, that is ok, I will take this place much over New Jersey...

good luck....

We are due to move to San Antonio soon and wow looking at the crime statistics. HOLY CRAP I'm surprised because Baltimore barely out does the area in crime. Overall yeah the stuff there is more petty and we have a lot of shootings and murder here but damn. That's a lot of crime there still. It's a little worrying because we were looking forward to getting away from all the crime around here and being in the slower life, and we find out nope almost in the same boat.

the crime is terrible here. Look outside of San Antonio. Look in Garden Ridge, Helotes, both are just outside of San Antonio. You will not like San Antonio. The graffitti and litter are a tell- tale sign of what the majority are that live there! Good luck.

East Rigsby & Houston street area with historic Fort Sam Houston nearby is so luxurious and delightful. I hope you move there.

It's not like crime is running rampant throughout the whole city...just in the places where there's graffiti EVERYWHERE (the graffiti is gangs marking their territory), but every big city has that problem. If you want to live near the city within walking distance of nice shops there's really only one area you should look at. Alamo Heights is a neighborhood located near a prestigious university (University of the Incarnate Word), wonderful shopping areas (Alamo Quarry just to name one) and great restaurants. Alamo Heights even has their own police that are pretty strict, but it keeps the place safe. There's another area called the King Williams Historical District that's close to downtown but there's more cons than pros to living there. It's really expensive, the surrounding area is not that great and it gets really gets crowded every first friday of the month when artists, merchants, musicians and hipsters gather to tell each other how cool they are. Other than that the shops and restaurants are very trendy, friendly and unique.

The best places to live in San Antonio are any locations east of the Alamodome or south of Highway 90 or IH10

Look up crime comparisions on the net. San Antonio has a high crime rate overall and is/will get worse over time. Also your insurance will go up on your vehicle due to all the crime. Property taxes are extremely high, 3.0 percent. Look to the suburbs outside the city for lower crime and a little cheaper property taxes. Where are you moving from? San Antonio is not that great of a city, weather is aweful. If you are moving from a major ghetto then perhaps you will like it here. People are not friendly here. This is my honest opinion. Do yourself a favor and look up the crime rate and then decide. San Antonio scored very low.
