I have been offered a job in San Antonio and would like to know the best areas (rural) to live in. I am used to rural living in Virginia

Hi upamuddyriver,
What job were you offered in San Antonio? Does it correlate to living in a rural area?

If you're going to be working in San Antonio, then teh rural areas close by are: Boerne, Floresville, Castroville.

Renting a farm is good idea for those looking to get into that kind of lifestyle. Never done it before, but heard of people doing it. Good luck.

Not necessarily, depending upon where in the city one works. My husband works at Kelly and many of his co-workers live in places like Pleasanton, Floresville, even Stockdale.

Bandera and Hondo might be worth considering as well.

Too far if you work in SA. I know SOME people drive from there to work, but come on, at what point do we draw the line? On the other hand, give it a couple more years and sprawl will catch up to those areas.

1. Depends where in SA you work. Boerne to Brooks City Base may be a long commute, but reasonable (by some standards) to UTSA/Medical area. Floresville to UTSA may be a long commute, but reasonable to Brooks City Base. I do know people who do all of these.

2. I know people who live in just about all the outlying rural communities and commute into parts of San Antonio, including Kerrville, Boerne, Castroville, Hondo, Bandera, Mico, FLoresville, Pleasanton. Some of those commutes are more practical than others, depending on the roads and type of development in the areas.

FTR- I'm not a fan of commuting myself, though I did it for awhile (downtown SA to Kerrville).
