OK I am thinking about moving to my company's account in SA next year. I am a young professional and like to go out and have fun on the weekends. Originally from North Jersey/ NYC area, moved to Jacksonville a year ago. I have found that the people in JAX aren't very friendly, and I want a change. I would probably live downtown, I here the river walk is nice? Any input on what SA is like for the young crowd?

Judging by the number of hungover college students I work with every day, I'd have to say pretty good, at least for that age group.

Mid to late 20's, I have no idea anymore. It makes me tired to even think about all that partying.

If your young and don't know the San Antonio area, i think renting apartment in the Stone Oak area would be wise. There are a lot of young recent transplants in that area.

While there is a lot of congestion during the day, night time driving and access will be a breeze. Later as you age, tailor your interests, and find your friends you will probably choose to live elsewhere.

I would definitely recommend living around downtown, esp. if you are working in or near downtown. There's a great vibe and a lot of young blood here. I would avoid the suburbs.

Aww man, it's completely different. As someone who has partied a lot in NYC, SA is nothing like it, although there are a few cool places downtown if that's your scene. I know people that moved here from Houston, which is much calmer than NYC, and they were bored out of their mind. So, while I'm not saying you won't have a great time, it will be calmer. One thing for sure though is that most people here are a lot friendlier and you'll save tons of $$.

If you want to meet young people in San Antonio and explore what's down here, I recommend couchsurfing.com. Basically it's a network to open up your home to out of towners while showing them what actual locals do for fun. the tradeoff is you get to use it yourself when traveling.

ok, not Stone Oak, that's like settle down, wife and kids, suburbia. Downtown is definately and excellent choice (or somewhere close to downtown). There are TONS of clubs and bars in and around downtown, and yes the Riverwalk is very nice- lots of nice resturaunts w/tables on the river PLUS there's a mall on the Riverwalk, and The Quarry shopping center is like 5min away up 281
