This quaint upscale part of San Antonio is one of the oldest areas in the city, and yet holds the top spot for fine restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and museums. Breckenridge is arguably the most beautiful park in the city. There is a small train that runs through the park that kids absolutely go gaga for. The park is adjacent to the Witte Museum, a family friendly museum which features both classic and modern art. In 2018 the Witte museum installed a one-of-a-kind dinosaur exhibit. Nearby is the world-renowned McNay art museum, which holds stunning classic collections as well as historical art pieces from Texas.
Alamo Heights is home to some of San Antonio’s finest dining. The mexican restaurant Paloma Blanco will win you over with their food and margaritas. For the young couple looking for a relaxing place to share a drink, there is Max’s Wine Dive for wine, Silo for the perfect Martini, or Cappyccino’s for both.
Alamo Heights offers a unique San Antonio living experience, since it is incorporated. While enjoying the metropolitan feel of America’s 7th largest city, it maintains its own fire, police, sanitation and other municipalities. Additionally, it runs its own government to maintain these departments.
If one thing is certain about Alamo Heights, it’s that there’s no such thing as “standard” or tract builders in the area. With many homes built in the early 20th century, homes along Alamo Heights’ tree-lined streets can differ significantly in style, features, and price. Ranging from small, charming cottages, to massive, luxurious Mediterranean manors, many of the homes have been either newly constructed or lovingly restored.
Long known as a top-notch school district, people are willing to pay a premium to live in a home within the Alamo Heights ISD district lines. This top-rated academic powerhouse has a college-bound student rate of 95% and has won nearly every award in the book. To add to its appeal, the athletics department is top-notch as well.
