Thinking of moving to San Antonio from the Kansas City, Mo Area. What areas should I avoid in Tx. I have 2 small kids. I need to be in an area close to grocery stores, daycares and work...I so not desire a large crime area. I have a friend I can't get a hold of that stays off Rimhurst , what area is that in and is it in a good spot.....is that North East South or West.

Need help with this decision.....

Thanks

The map in the thread below shows the relative danger of various parts of SA. It's simplistic, but if you want more details, you can get various crime statistics plotted on a map at the crimebase site on mysa.com.

Rimhurst Road is in the NW part of SA, just inside Loop 1604. That's a fast-growing part of town. AFAIK, it's safe, but there's a lot of traffic there. As long as your work is fairly close by, the traffic shouldn't cause problems for you. I wouldn't want to have to travel from there to Loop 410, though. That trip to Loop 410 down Bandera Road can be slow.

Default now I'm a bit nervous

When I looked up my street and neighborhood on that one site, it seems like there is a lot of crime in our neighborhood (break in, car thefts). Is this normal for San Antonio? It just seems like we didn't have as much crime where we are moving from. I guess that website kind of scared me a little! Any words of encouragement about moving?

Well, what area is it? If we knew the area or the neighborhood, or a major cross street someone on here probably lives nearby and can give you an opinion.

Well, unfortunately, the crime database doesn't lie. It is what it is. If she searched by her street name and several things came up, then there is probably a lot of property crime in her neighborhood. Sounds like they need a Neighborhood Watch--they really do work. We are fortunate enough to live in a cul-de-sac, and we have a watch, and we've had 3 incidents in the last 3 years. And one of those was in July and it was actually the lady next door's boyfriend that got a little too drunk and obnoxious for her liking and she had him hauled off. We all look out for each other and luckily we have some people that stay home all day. Now, the rest of the neighborhood--look out!

If you're squeamish, don't even check out the sex offender database. We probably have about 25 in our subdivision. There is an elementary school at the front of our neighborhood, and a middle school on the back end. You just have to use common sense where your kids are concerned. Mine gets dropped off and picked up from school, and he doesn't run the streets.
