While generally thought of as a neighborhood, Alamo Heights is an independent, council-managed city situated in the heart of San Antonio and located just 4.5 miles north of downtown. Known for its classically eclectic architecture and upscale lifestyle, Alamo Heights feels a bit like San Antonio's Beverly Hills or – for those familiar with Dallas – Highland Park. Its established, stately character fits inconspicuously into the surrounding area, which includes neighboring communities like Terrell Hills, Olmos Park and Lincoln Heights. But, with a devotion to arts, entertainment, and dining, Alamo Heights is anything but stoic or out-of-reach.
The homes in Alamo Heights are famous for their architectural flair - there is nothing repetitive here. From craftsman style cottages, to stately mansions; from mid-century modern bungalows to luxury condos and apartments, this area has it all. Lot sizes and square footage tend to be smaller than newer communities near San Antonio's fringes. But what the houses might lack in super-sized square footage, they more than make up for in historicity, character, and location location location.
The 343 acre Brackenridge park is one of the highlights of Alamo heights. It has beautiful trails along the water and throughout its serene woods, a train ride known as the San Antonio Zoo Eagle, and excellent playgrounds. It is also home to the acclaimed Brackenridge park golf course and the San Antonio Zoo, which touts an impressive 4.3 star rating on Google Reviews. For those seeking a bit of zen-like tranquility, the park's ever-peaceful Japanese Tea Garden is sure to please.
Not far away stands The Broadway, a luxurious high-rise condo featuring multi-million dollar suites, unparalleled views, and a more 'Manhattan-like' lifestyle. Both the tower and neighborhood offer quick access to the nearby Witte Museum and McNay Art Museum, which consistently feature some of the best exhibits in Texas and the country.
Of course, no visit to Alamo Heights would be complete without a round of top-drawer shopping at the cement-factory-turned-lifestyle-destination, Alamo Quarry Market Shopping Center and Quarry Village. With its classy feel and myriad of museums, parks, shopping and great restaurants, Alamo Heights has something for every taste.
