Though Alamo Heights is only 5 miles north of the center of San Antonio’s downtown district, it can feel a world away with its charming tree-lined streets and cozy cottages. If you dream of enjoying the convenience of city living and the character of a close-knit small town, locking down a place in Alamo Heights may be the move for you.


Fun fact: Alamo Heights is actually its own city within San Antonio’s borders! This means the area has its own local government, police, fire, and sanitation departments. This also means it has its very own downtown, which is centered around the shop-lined Broadway Street. Here you can kick off your morning ritual at Merit Coffee and then make a day out of browsing the eclectic boutiques and locally-owned businesses nearby.

Speaking of shopping—premium retail is a huge draw for residents and visitors to the neighborhood. Formerly an abandoned cement plant, the Alamo Quarry Market has been reimagined into a thriving lifestyle center with tons of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Grab a comfort-food brunch at Ida Claire, browse your favorite stores in the open-air complex, and then see what’s screening at Regal Cinema.

More of an outdoorsy type? Take an open house tour of one of the oldest caves in Texas, the Robber Baron Cave Preserve, or get your steps in on the wildlife-filled Judson Nature Trails. You can also book a tee time and practice your swing at the Quarry Golf Course, or enjoy the green space and community amenities at Olmos Basin Park. But if the Texas heat is begging you to stay in the air-conditioned indoors, find refuge browsing the collections at Texas’s first modern art museum, The McNay Museum of Art.


While cottages and single-family homes make up most of the real estate options in Alamo Heights, there are a variety of upscale apartment options for rent as well. When you’re ready to find your San Antonio apartment, we’re here to make it easy. Pair up with a locator for free help landing a place that matches your lifestyle!

Access to all of the conveniences in central San Antonio, but being it's own municipality, you get more concentrated city services.
