The I-10 area(NW) is exploding with new commercial growth-there are lots of opportunities for small businesses. We have a couple of friends who have small businesses in SA and are doing very well. We have been here since November and just love it! I'm coming from the Detroit suburbs and there are plenty of things to do here- comparable to Detroit. Maybe the art museum and the museums overall are smaller but this town is growing! The amount of tourist/convention dollars generated here is very stabilizing for San Antonio. Detroit has been trying to get people to come to the city for decades and only in the past few years are starting to generate tourist/convention interest. San Antonio is really family-friendly, too. I love how friendly and laid back people are here. Oh, and I love the zoo (anytime) and the riverwalk at Christmas. I don't see how I can keep the kiddos from Fiesta, Texas this summer(oops! sorry!) We're only a couple of miles from it rather than 2.5 hours in Detroit-it's a great lure for the nieces and nephews. With 300k you can buy a nice house in a good school district. There is lots of info about the north central, northwest, Stone Oak, Alamo Heights/Terrell Hills, Boerne and Helotes areas on this forum. Just check the school district websites to make sure the schools aren't capped. There are quite a few schools opening in NISD and a new high school in both Boerne ISD and Northeast.

It wasn't a snide remark at all. Sorry you took it that way.
