Maybe the is line different for each individual person. For me, I would place the line running north and south right at 37. I don’t mind the west side all that much as that’s were I grew up and go back to every Sunday. Others disagree, and that’s no big deal.

...and now I LIVE south of Hildebrand.

There really is not a line is there? I am white raised in an upper middle class home out in La Vernia. I went Palo Alto of all places for my first year and really found nothing wrong with the south side. Now the area around St. Phillips i will say is a bit scary at night. But now i live in the medical center and venture down there from time to time to eats and is not bad actual its getting a lot better.

These are the sort of people who are very confused by Monte Vista. They are so invested with the idea that anything south of about Basse is the barrio that the idea that there are some nice and really, really nice areas south of Hildebrand does not compute for them.

Thanks for all the feedback. I think we'll be zeroing in on the area by the shops at La Cantera & the Rim (since I already have a membership to LifeTime fitness & it is supposedly opening there??) I also like what I hear about the Cibolo/Schertz area but wonder if it will be a hellish commute to USAA?

Mary, My family and I just moved to Stage Run 10 days ago. We moved from Michigan and my husband has never lived anywhere but Michigan. We were transferred and so far it has been really great! There are lots of transplants here and I can't tell you how many native Texans have welcomed us to Texas. Now that's southern hospitality-literally everyone from the dentist to strangers at Target! As far as bugs are concerned, we had the bug guy out for the little tiny ants that like our back window but we haven't seen anything unusual except for pretty large grasshoppers. The first place I took my kids was the San Antonio Zoo-it is awesome. More like a tropical Toledo zoo-only more animals. The only thing that concerns me here is the driving-I really have to drive defensively-I can't exactly describe it-it seems like there aren't the implied "rules of the road" here. There just seems to be more randomness in the driving style-all this at great speeds! Anyway, I just imagine I'm in NYC and it's every girl for herself! Hope you find your groove here!

thanks! I've never lived outside of Michigan and I'll definitely miss my family, the four seasons, our cottage up north, etc. I am very much a midwesterner. But I am getting excited about seeing new things, meeting new people.
Can anyone recommend a preschool program? Catholic or public.
