Lots of homes in bad areas are gated. Drive through the south side some time. It is very common.

Having said that, Most every larger city has an are like Olmos Park where you have older estates and many of them are gated. It should also be noted that most of the homes in Olmos park are in facts NOT gated.

I'm getting ready to relocate to the San Antonio "area" in a year or so, and so I've been doing a little research. I've decided that I'd MUCH rather live up in Comal County than down in Bexar County... Comal County seems to have fewer deadbeats begging for a free lunch, and hence, the taxes are much lower.

Funny how that works, huh?

Oh yeah, and Comal County, for some strange reason, doesn't vote Democrat... go figure.

Why am I suddenly reminded of a bumper sticker I saw once that said "Work harder, millions on welfare depend on you"?

There are very few worthless degrees, but there are worthless schools. As long as you went to a regionally accredited school, there should be a way to work your degree. Contrary to popular belief, philosophy majors do find jobs in the private sector. Some investment banking companies even hire people with liberal arts degrees. There is almost always something you can do with your degree at the bachelors level or higher.

Most of the communities are guarded/gated. From time to time there will be open houses or community tours, but they're not really common in those neighborhoods. Alamo Heights, Terrell Hills and Olmos Park are open areas that you can drive through anytime. Just don't speed!

Elm Creek has the highest per capita income in SA. Dominion is kind of the "go to" when people think of large houses, but lots of folks live elsewhere. Anaqua Springs starts at about $1m and goes up from there. The most expensive for sale in there is $2.8m but there are more expensive ones in there. Greystone has a few hidden gems as high as $5m. Hill Country Village has some of the most expensive in the city. There are a few monsters in there. Cordillera Ranch in Boerne is a place folks go if they want some acreage. There are quite a few of $2m+ homes in there. Lots of very cool, yet very different neighborhoods.
