We are relocating to San Antonio in November. Please advice what neighborhoods or zip codes are safe for a family with a small child and relatively close to the downtown area and major employers.

Thank you for your help.

Do you have any idea where you'll be employed? I would venture to guess that the vast majority of people don't work downtown and living on the NW side and working downtown is going to be quite a commute.. I think it would be best for you to give a few more details out as there isn't really a correct answer for what you asked. It's too vague.

I am moving to San Antonio to do job hunting. I have a bachelor's degree in Human Resources and I am bilingual.
I guess my question should be: where is the best area to live in San Antonio for job hunting (close to the majority of employers)? Safety is a main concern since we have a small child.
Thank you for your help.

First....congrats on your move in November...it should be beautiful here (I say "should" because you never know) when you arrive.

Second....that is a really broad request. There are an immense amount of safe neighborhoods in and around San Antonio. Since you are renting first that will surely give you a chance to do some research and learn which areas you find appealing.

You mentioned you will be job hunting......where you eventually will be employed will determine where you want to settle. There are many large companies: Toyota, KCI, UTSA, USAA, etc. I would suggest doing a few job searches on Monster and Career Builder and see where the opportunites are located and then go from there.

Good Luck

Thank you so much Aquajox. You are wonderful.
This information will help me greatly. I will review it carefully.

A couple more questions: Are most employers located in a certain area of San Antonio or distributed all over the city?
Does Downtown any good employment oportunities?

It's pretty spread out. The city is about 30 miles wide in every direction. Downtown has the touristy stuff, and I'm not sure what else. Northwest has the medical district, UTSA, and Valero. The South has the port of San Antonio as well as Boeing and Toyota. And there are all kinds of other business' spread throughout. I live near SeaWorld on the far west side, so I'm not familiar with what is on the Northeast and East side of town. But from here, I can get to any of the above listed area's in 15 to 35 minutes on most days.
