Toscana apartment is what i can think of as the closest to the huebner intersection, you can literally walk (not even bike) to all of these.
The only thing missing is a movie theater, lol
You can walk there, but no one does. Cars are either speeding down the road or stuck in traffic in that area. People in this city jump in their car to drive across the street.

I don't frequent the area but if I start walking to a nearby store, people look at me like I have four heads, as if they've never seen a pedestrian before. I usually get to my store before the folks sitting in traffic to drive 2 blocks. he he!

well yes and no... most live further away and not really in a walking distance to huebner and so they drive... but i do see people walking, jogging, walking the dogs. sidewalks is almost everywhere esp in this area with views of mature trees and landscape.. enticing for walk... if people don't walk when they can, then its the people's problem not the area... but seldom do you find an area where you can find diverse concentration of shops and retails that are not 3/4 parking lots and this area is one of the few that i can think of...

but its true, people drive in this city and almost anywhere in US except for a few true urban city (SF,NYC)

but i do like quarry village too... if i will go back to apt living i'll probably pick that... now that one has movie theatres... hehe

I second the quarry village. It's close to olmos/AH and there are lots of young professionals. Plus those apts/condos are nice inside and cost 1k a month. If that's in your price range. Also around UTSA near 1604. There are lots of nicer bar/grill resturaunts and ppl in your age range. Be prepared when u come to SA to drive. We build out and not up

San Antonio for whatever reason had not developed itself into a true urban live and play environment. From experience no matter where you live you wont hit any specific area that has your exact age group. I will say the Alamo heights/Fort Sam area seems to have a lot of restaurants and bars with people in their 20's and also cheap safe living.

Unfortunately San Antonio is a older family orientated city which is great for people in that range but not so great for anything else.
