Where to Live
The farther away from the heart of San Antonio, the cheaper the homes. The most southwestern tip of Southtown, below the San Pedro River, holds the cheaper real estate deals. These great prices have been luring in new parents and families due to the rising cost of city life. In the northern section of the neighborhood, bordering West and East Lachapelle, homes are larger and more expensive. This neighborhood has been referred to by locals as the best small town in a big city. No matter north or south in Southtown, the community is welcoming and well-maintained.
Where to Eat
In the northernmost part of Southtown you can find great places to eat. Cute little cafes, bars, bakeries, and authentic Mexican food places litter this area. No matter your preferences, you can find something to suit your needs without having to travel into the city.
What You'll See
On any typical day out, you are bound to see kids, families, and singles. There are many artistic people in the south side, so don't be surprised at the occasional hipster. You'll see people walking their dogs down colorfully painted blocks, rushing off to brunch with friends, or playing ball with their kids in the big yards you'll see in this neighborhood. There is a wonderful diversity that Southtown shares with the rest of San Antonio, so everyone feels welcome.
Friday Night Fun
Mentioning Friday without the Southtown First Friday celebration would be nothing short of criminal. On the first Friday of every month, all of Southtown throws down for a community-wide art show, featuring locals and out of town artists. Sometimes thousands of people descend upon this area to experience the arts and culture of local San Antonians. Afterward, festivities continue into the wee hours.
The Perfect Sunday
Visiting the Alamo is always an option on Sunday. From Southtown, it is literally only one mile to the historic site, which is perfect for entertaining visiting guests or the family. Singles will also find the experience enjoyable. There are many shops and restaurants around the site due to the high amount of tourists that come through the Alamo. If crowds, history, and great brunches aren't your thing, there are many parks within walking distance of Southtown, like Chris Park at 111 Camp Street. This park is well-maintained, artsy, and shrouded in shade.
