Alamo Heights is a municipality located in the heart of San Antonio loved by its over 7000 residents. A city rich in history, Alamo Heights was incorporated in 1922 and had its own home rule charter by 1954. It is surrounded on all sides by San Antonio but packs an impressive amount of conveniences within its small borders. The people I know that live there love it and never plan on leaving. Here’s to the community which I affectionately call “The ’09ers”.
Alamo Heights covers a total of 2.1 square miles to which approximately 7500 people call home. It’s neighbors include Terrell Hills and Olmos Park. The center of this city is located just 5 minutes from downtown San Antonio making it a convenient location for those working downtown or off of 410/281. Despite it’s convenient location many people choose Alamo Heights for a multitude of other reasons.
Within and around Alamo Heights are a world of things to do! For the shoppers there are the fabulous little shops lining Broadway along with the abundance of shops at The Quarry. For art and history enthusiasts there’s the Witte Museum and the McNay Art Museum. For loads of outdoor fun, Alamo Heights is right next to the San Antonio Zoo, Japanese Tea Garden and Botanical Garden. To top it off, Alamo Heights is also home to the only Central Market in San Antonio.
