Best Neighborhoods for Young Families

The real estate market in San Antonio is on the right track. This is the reason why many young families consider moving in one of the city’s neighborhoods. There are so many great neighborhoods to choose from. Here are some of them: 


Even if this is a neighborhood for the rich, the small town feels in Boerne is noticeable. People who live here know how to live like people of Boerne- they don’t spend their nights doing nothing at home.  They would eat in local restaurants; attend free concerts at the Main Plaza, or buy something on the farmers market. The schools provide excellent education, the neighbors are friendly and life is simpler. If you like your family to live in a peaceful environment but complete with comfortable and sophisticated amenities, Boerne is a good choice.  

Alamo Heights/Terrell Hills 

One of the most family friendly zip codes-78209, Alamo Heights/ Terrell Hills is well-known for its stately streets lined with old trees and majestic houses. The area is home to many friendly neighbors and a wide collection of high-end shops, museums, top schools, posh restaurants and popular bakeries. The Bird Bakery is the go-to place for locals and tourists alike. The charming stores are walkable, such as the Svelte Veldt, and Rooms & Gardens, home to pricey antiques and glossy books.  If your family loves art, McNay, the DoSeum, and the Witte are just around the corner. 

Texas Hill Country     

The Texas Hill Country is the heart and soul of the state. It has a lot of beautiful places that your family can enjoy to visit. The natural sceneries are composed of forests, rivers, hills, and waterfalls.  This makes Texas Hill Country one of the most beautiful in the entire country.  This also means that there are so many outdoor activities waiting for your family. You always have the option to go hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, canoeing, and mountain climbing. The hills and mountains are abundant with Texas wildflowers, which is great for a family photo opportunity. 


At Timberwood Park, you can experience neighborly spirit in every corner of the street.  Most areas of the village are shaded from the sun by so many tall trees. Your kids will love watching deer as they would frequently visit your front yard.  This is a nice neighborhood for a leisurely walk. There is a private 3-acre park where you can enjoy live music. It also has a lake where you can go fishing.  Its close proximity to San Antonio reminds you that you are near a civilization, but the rural feel of Timberwood Park denies you this realization.
