Hi everyone,
I will be moving to San Antonio soon. I am curious which areas may be best for me to rent an apartment.
I am a 28, single, professional and have been told by a friend that lives there that the "medical" area would be a good place to rent. Any other suggestions?
I'd like to keep the rent for a 1 bedroom under $700. Also, any ideas of organizations, etc. for those new to S.A.?
Any info would be appreciated...

I like the Monte Vista and Alamo Heights areas for rentals. Both have lots of fourplexes, townhomes and small homes to rent in your price range. In college, a friend of mine lived in a fourplex in Monte Vista with wood floors and a fire place and paid 825 for a two bedroom less than two blocks from campus. There are also apartments on the edges of Olmos Park, and on Olmos Drive.

These places are best found either on Craig's List or by driving around the area and noting the For Rent signs.

I really dislike the Medical Center area. The traffic is insane, it has zero charm, and I've heard bad things about a lot of the complexes. Another friend lived at Promontory Pointe, which was supposed to be "upscale (God, I hate that word! It's so overused!) and turned out to be a very expensive dump.

Any of the Complexes at Oakwell Farms are great. Just inside the 410 loop and close to Alamo Heights, the airport, shopping, ect...

Lived at Mira Vista (LaCantera Parkway) few years ago while going to grad school at UTHSCA. Nice place - nice pool/fitness. Think I paid about $800 for a 1/1 with garage. Nice location, in my opinion.

Nearly 15 yrs ago lived at a complex off of Oakwell Parkway (called Oakwell Farms). Convenient to Fort Sam, but not the best park of town. Kind of secluded.

There are a ton of places to choose from. I'd recommend the medical district.

As far as organizations for those who are new to SA - there are several meetup.com groups. They have hiking, single people, dining out, and so on. They have lots of groups with all sorts of interests. I'm in a Parent's one and it's been great!
