Does anyone know much about the Live Oak area? Is it a safe area or should I be looking somewhere else.

IMO it is a safe area. It is not fancy, nor is it new as some other parts of town are... but many of the yards are good-sized (we have two dogs who love to play outside when we are home, so this is important for us) and the houses are generally not right on top of each other as I have seen in the neighborhoods in which many of my friends live. There are many more rentals here than there used to be (I grew up in LO off and on throughout my school years and live there now as well), but most of them seem fairly kept up... I rarely see tagging/graffiti when driving around and if it is done, it usually is removed somewhat quickly. I always see people out for walks by themselves or with their families.

I am speaking of the original/old Live Oak - not as familiar with the newer subdivisions that have popped up. We have been back in S.A. for five years now, four of those being in Live Oak. I have never felt unsafe. We don't get new restaurants or stores as often as some other parts of town, and it takes me flipping forever to drive to work every day (I teach on the westside)... but the location overall works for us. Please let me know if you have other questions (either by posting or sending a DM) and I will try to answer them if I can.

Agree with previous poster. A lot of older (by SA standards) homes, long ranch style homes wi th character, very clean and well kept lots. I go to the Golds Gym outh there, and I discovered it one day when I had some spare time. Until then, the only thing I knew about LO was that 35 interchange and the strip mall. It's part of Judson ISD, I believe.
