78215 is downtown near the Riverwalk. 78251 is on the far west side of town. Huge difference. Get the address of the company's offices here and plug them into google maps to see where you are headed.

Like someone previously suggested, please visit the sticky note at the top of the San Antonio forum front page. It's chock full of great info for people considering a move to SA. In fact, here's the link: http://www.city-data.com/forum/san-a...formation.html

Yea they have it switched. It happened to me also years ago with a job. Make sure the zip is right. Downtown is a different ballgame and in my opinion has some beautiful historic houses, but not where I would want to raise my family. Just my opinion.

Yes, I live in 78251, and believe youre probably referring to the 78215 if anything for historic, because 78251 was developed only a few years ago due to the growth of the 78250 zip. but still, its not that far, this is Texas, the area is great no matter what. good luck, and hope you get it.

FWIW - we're raising a family in an historic district downtown and love it (except for the lack of grocery stores)!

But it'll be a bit of a challenge now finding much in the 200K range.

The Aguila Oaks Apartments are terrible. The apartments are falling apart with pest issues and management and maintenance are the slowest, laziest, and most heartless people with whom I have ever dealt. I would refer you to ApartmentRatings.com, but the site seems to be gone even though it still shows up at the top of a Google search.

Most areas north of 410 and between I-10 and I-35 are pretty safe except for the Perrin Beitel area.
