Trying to get info on SA. My husband has applied for promotion to SA. We are from Missouri and know NOTHING about the area. Its all very overwhelming. I know we want a good school and a very safe neighborhood. We aren't sure if we want to buy right away but we do need an idea of good areas. Could you help?
Thanks!!

Whats your price range for a house? How old are your kids? Where is your husband going to be working? The Stone Oak area is very nice, with great schools, traffic is generally terrible in that area. Alamo Heights is good as well. If it were me I would want to live outside of 1604 out towards Boerne(also have good schools, but about 30 minutes from the city), have a few acres, and be able to enjoy piece and quiet.

From on Missourian to another ... welcome!!

First of all... I will have to give you a heads up and tell you that it IS more expensive to live down here than in Missouri. I was led to believe otherwise before we moved down here, and it is a lot more $$ to live here than in MO.

I will come back later and post more.... got to run!

Yeah, prepare yourself for some mega culture shock. There's actually diversity here and nobody cares where you went to high school.

I would say Stone Oak if you like shiny new suburbs, Alamo Heights if you like close-in, older suburbs and a somewhat more urban environment (and if you have the means; it's pricey), and Boerne if you like a country environment with good amenities that is still close to town. There are other good options as well though.

Diversity in San Antonio means you have people from the south side and the west side. Nobody cares where you went to high school because you probably didn't graduate.
