A city rich with history, culture and modern attractions, it's no surprise San Antonio is considered one of the best places to live in Texas. Often compared in size to Dallas, Houston, and Austin, San Antonio offers the same big-city appeal with a notably lower cost of living — with no shortage of things to do.
Live downtown in the heart of the city for incredible access to all the best dining, dining, and entertainment. The River Walk, San Antonio's most popular attraction, is located in this district, as are Alamo Plaza, the Alamo, San Fernando Cathedral, and many museums, theatres, and art schools that liven the scene for apartment dwellers. Like many typical downtown areas, this neighborhood has an abundance of high-rise living options from condos to luxury apartments. You'll also find a smattering of Victorian mansions and other historic homes that keep the cityscape interesting.
One of the oldest districts in the country is also one of the most up-and-coming. Just 10 minutes from downtown, Monte Vista is centrally located with plentiful green space and a balance between urban and suburban living. To the west, across Route 10, Monticello Park includes a historic district composed of an eclectic mix of architectural styles, ranging from Art Moderne to Spanish Eclectic and Tudor Revival. Apartments in this desirable area offer convenient access to scenic Woodlawn Lake, some of the city's best architecture, and downtown.
