San Antonio Is Growing For a Reason! - 2/17/2019
I have lived in San Antonio for almost 15 years. I'm in the very fast growing northeast side of town. My experience here has been overwhelmingly positive. People here are genuinely nice, helpful, and polite. There is a sincere pride in living here, in Texas, and in the United States. Is crime a problem? No more so than in other large cities. Our middle class neighborhood has been targeted for theft repeatedly over the years, that is true and unfortunate. But we have a great community that watches out for each other.
The heat can be unbearable. When it's still in the mid-to-upper 90's in October, it can wear you down. But I still prefer to be too hot than too cold!
I think many of the other reviews were written by people with a specific grudge. Talk to other people in your demographic to get a real feel for it here. Read More

San Antonio (Truth no one wants to say) - 1/20/2019
Sperlings is censoring reviews about the high crime and increase in violent crime in San Antonio.

When you look at teh crime rates they coincide with the influx of lowlives from New Orleans that were let into the city after they cried in Louisiana about hurricane in 2016. The naieve city of San Antonio let the criminals in from one of the most murderous city in the country (New Orleans).

Not only that the violent crime and shootings used to mostly be relegated to teh West Side or East Side. Now they are EVERYWHERE. Just in the first week of this year there were dozens of violent crimes. We are talking drive by, armed robbery, murder, just insane criminality.

With the New Orleans junkies came the increase in drug use as well, we are talking heavy drug like meth. Not to mention bums are now started to be numerous. This place is turning to Austin (a city 1 hour from here that is a liberal dump filled with drug addicted garbage and junkies and Read More

What No One Will Tell You About San Antonio - 1/15/2019
The news will say otherwise and claim this city is safe, this may have been true years ago, but it is no longer the case. So Bottom line is IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT MOVING HERE….THINK AGAIN THIS CITY IS INFECTED WITH CRIME. Plus you have DRUG ADDICT CITY (Austin) 1 hour away. There are better cities where people don’t act like animals. San Antonio is full of the trash.

This city has gone down the toilet and fast. Mostly thanks to the drug using piles of trash who think using or selling drugs is cool. Weak or absent father figures are a contributor as well. It’s not a coincidence that the influx of Louisiana criminals when Hurricane Harvey had them shipped over here and they mostly ALL stayed because the easy pickings that they saw in the city. With then came the more brazen drug-fueled crimes that you see now.

I can tell you that there is a new breed of brazen criminality gripping the city. These kinds of criminals are brazen. Take for instance recently Read More

Wasn't born here, but glad I moved here. - 12/26/2018
Coming from beautiful San Diego to San Antonio was an adjustment, hated it at first but soon fell in love with Texas in just a few months. It's not as pretty, sure, but it has its own charm. SA is more like a slower paced huge town than a city this size should be - still has a nice old-fashioned feel to it. It is getting crowded here so expect some traffic (nothing like San Diego or LA traffic though). There's plenty to do. I learned to fish here and tube down a river, saw fireflies and deer for the first time, and within a 15 minute drive outside the city limits you'll see endless stars. Not a lot of night life (a handful of hot spots) but the food is good almost anywhere. There's lots of attractions (SeaWorld, Six Flags, Riverwalk, Natural Bridge Cavern), some nice museums, the beach is about 2 1/2 hours away, two large lakes nearby for summer fun, festivals all year round, a few awesome concerts, a huge fair and rodeo every February, and Austin is just over an hour drive away.

San Antonio Full of Jealous and Lazy People - 12/21/2018
I lived here about 8 years ago and I can tell you this place was never good, but I had to return due to orking in medical field and getting pay upgrade with a hospital here after my residency elsewhere (What a mistake).

People here are generally lazy and I am Hispanic and since I have drive other Hispanics/Mexicans will try and bring you down if you are successful, usually by attempting to make fun of your success , excluding you, or trying to diminish achievments. (What we call "envidia") and there is a lot of it in this city.

Another thing I noticed after coming back here is the influx of negritos. I used to never see them , but now they hooked up with all the low class mexican women and have the mexican women pay all the bills and pay for an apartment so they are moving into sides of town they dont fit in because they have the ignorant mexican woman or a white woman paying for everything (dont tell me otherwise, Ive seen it too many times with my own Read More

Beware - 8/15/2018
Overall the crime rate is pretty good. Of course you have to worry about white collar crime and harrassment the kind that can drain your bank account and result in premature death. I would not move to the city due to a crazed vigilante group. Beware.  Read More

Good Review - 7/23/2018
I’ve read some of the older reviews of San Antonio and it is interesting to see all the different opinions. I have lived in Seattle, Atlanta, Naples, and Austin and they all have their pros and cons. I was able to find the beauty in all of these places. I think San Antonio is a gem as someone had written before. Someone criticized it’s laid back culture full of siestas and parties and I say YASSSS to this!! I was really tired of the rat race and San Antonio just offers a higher quality of life with less of that daily stress. Thank God a lot of San Antonio doesn’t care for or puts up with pretentiousness. A lot of great things are happening to the city and San Antonions will continue to celebrate a city full of soul. Yes, my soul is happier here because I live more authentically with less worry and more humility. Read More

Real talk. - 2/5/2018
I was born and raised in San Antonio. Here's my $0.02.

THE TL;DR -- If you can handle allergy season being (basically) year-round, don't mind humid, hot weather, have a specific skill-set/job (or don't mind capping your pay), are knowledgeable about property tax and Texas' tax system, and aren't looking for a liberal oasis --- San Antonio is probably a perfect or good fit for you. if any of those things stand out to you, you might want to do a lot more research, and really consider if the city is a good fit for you!

Jobs/COL: There are high paying jobs, but they're mostly segmented with specific employers or job fields. Example: My brother works for USAA, and gets paid VERY well for the typical COL of San Antonio. Lawyers and doctors will also get paid well. Outside of that, you'd need to find a specific company that you can build a career with, because San Antonio is lacking in any sort of job market. The tech jobs are in Austin, the blue collar and Read More

Great place to live - 11/12/2017
we have been living here for over 28 years. We love it. The city has lot to offer to any visitors and residents. We love the climate if you can withstand the hot summers where temp reach 100F or above on some days mainly in July and August. Unlike some other folks, we have not developed any allergies.! It is the only major Hispanic city in USA with 55%. The city has expanded quite a bit over the past three decades and now the 7th largest city in USA. Traffic congestion has gotten bad over the years but they are building and expanding the roads. The cost of living is not bad. The Tex Mex cuisine and the many restaurants are wonderful. Many parks and outdoor recreational areas within 2 hour drive. Corpus Christi and other beaches along the gulf are within 3 hr drive. Many nice golf courses for year around golf. You need to visit and stay here for a week to discover all the nice things about San Antonio. Read More

Heat & Allergies - 9/9/2017
Moved here from the PNW 4 years ago. The allergies are killing me 10 months out of the year. And the heat is unbearable in the summer. I miss the cold & rain of the PNW was much. We are currently working on moving back, and I cannot wait to get out of here.

However, we live in the 78258 zip code, which is absolutely beautiful. Rolling hills, red roof almost seems like we live over seas. The views are beautiful. The public schools in this zip code are rated top notch, 10 out of 10.

But, houses are pretty high, and property taxes are outrageous. I don't see how anyone makes ends meet here because of the high prices of property taxes. And I have no idea where that money goes, because the streets are full of cracks and holes...

The winter months are comfortable, but short lived. If you don't mind the heat, don't have allergies, and you have plenty of money, this zip code is a lovely place to live and raise children.  Read More
