Hello!! I'm a 27 y/o single, recently graduated, professional that received employment in New Braunfels, TX and was wondering where would be the best place to live?

I've been to NB once and don't know if it's the place I'm looking to reside. I've been looking at possibly staying in San Marcos and commuting since it has a larger university and the associated perks.

I've got a few cousins and a female friend in Austin so I'd prefer to stay more North than head towards SA but would love to hear comments on where is the best place for a (fairly) young male in this general area.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Nick

San Marcos would generally have younger women - perhaps younger than you'd care for, since many would be 18-22 and still at the age where it's important to be them.

I would live in New Braunfels, but the commute probably would not be that bad from San Marcos.

You wouldn't think it, but I am actually finding out that quite a few younger (late 20 somethings) are working in the northside and the New Braunfels area and end up living in Schertz and "ghetto northeast side" (there's a thread that discuss the rea..it's really not ghetto) because the cost of living there is lower. San Marcos wouldn't be a bad choice, but it may be a bit too young, like TexasRedneck said.

Thanks for the replys!

I agree that my age is closing in on creeper-status if I'd be around campus but I enjoy being around scholarly individuals (I'm not sure what the Graduate population is but assuming fairly substantial given the size of TSU).

I think I'll look into NB as I've seen a few apartments located on the river that looked nice and it would cut down commute time.

Thanks again for the help and if anyone has any suggestions on things to do in NB or SM I'd love to hear them (especially if you know of a good gym).

Living in NB, I'd use the river as my "gym" - swim, tube, canoe - LOTS of ways to exercise!

look for something off of Evans Road. its right at 1604 and 35, which on the north side is a nice area.

Evans Road leads right into Stone Oak which some would say is the nicest area in San Antonio with reasonably priced homes.

Cibolo Canyon is brand new, its also very beautiful with the JW Marriot Resort in the neighbourhood, you can't go wrong if you can afford to live there.

its very good that you can live in San Antonio and work in New Braunfels instead of the other way around, i believe you'll have a pleasant and quick commute if you're leaving san antonio instead of coming into san antonio at 7-8AM in the morning.

Live in NB man, no doubt. Get a place near the river and you will be the guy everyone wants to visit come summer time. SM does have a younger population due to the school, but NB is overall a nicer town with more things to do.
