Where to live in San Antonio

May be moving to the area for a while. Anyone suggest areas that are better to get a place in? Any areas I need to stay away from?

Be there by myself for the first few months if I go, and will only have a motorcycle with me so need somewhere it will be secure.

I lived in San Antonio for 6 years and hated every minute of it. But if you must live there, Thousand Oaks between 281 and 35 is a nice area. Anywhere near Sea World is pretty nice also. Just stay away from the east side and you'll be ok.

Lived there 24 years. Anywhere around IH35 north of 1604, the Garden Ridge or Selma Area. OR North 281 past 1604 Bulverde area. Make sure you check the police blotter as I have not lived there for some 11 years now but drive through it every week.

taxes suck but the Heights, Olmos Park, and Terrel Hills areas are nice and safe.

I second that anywhere near the 1604 side of sea world is nice, if i had the money i would live in Helotes. Just don't live anywhere near Lackland or on the east side.

I live right by Seaworld and its a nice area. All the stores and junk you need and at the edge of the awful traffic. For me, its 8 miles to the ranch so I'm thrilled living where I do.
