Hi there everyone.

My husband and I are currently residing in Louisville, KY but we plan on moving to San Antonio once we're done with school (another 3 years or so). We're fairly settled on moving down to SA, as we've heard about how great it is for young families. I figured I'd do a little research though just to make sure we're completely informed by the time we do move.

I would like to know how SA is split as far as neighborhoods and communities. If anyone knows Louisville, we currently live in the Highlands area which is a little eccentric but walking distance to pretty much everything. It's got great small businesses, a huge park for my dog, and the crime isn't too bad. Also, it's about 20 minutes from downtown. If there's anything like that in San Antonio I would love to know about it. We actually went down there a couple of years ago for vacation and the river walk actually kinda had a similiar feel, though maybe not so touristy.

Thanks.

There are several neighborhoods similar to the one you describe. Southtown, Monte Vista, King William, Mahncke Park and Tobin Hills are a few that come to mind. No telling what kind of prices you will find in 3 years. It's best left until then to determine. I would say any of them are only going up in value and price. There seems to be a resurgence of moving back into the city and any one of those areas are popular and getting more popular. The Riverwalk is a very touristy area, it's the biggest industry in SA. 3 years from now, that could all be different.

What do you mean by biggest industry? #1 industry in SA is BioMed. Tourism is #3. Anyhow, please clarify.
