If you want to be in the center of it all but still have space to breathe, you’ll want to search Midtown San Antonio for your next rental. Located near Alamo Heights, Tobin Hill, the Medical District, and Downtown, this central neighborhood, filled with plenty to do in its own borders, puts you next to just about anything you could want and need.

Before you begin your apartment search, though, remember patience is key. This side of town is a big buyers’ market, making Midtown San Antonio Apartments scarce. However, with the right search, it isn’t impossible to find a cozy apartment amongst all of those beautiful historical homes.

The Midtown Neighborhood Overview

Located just north of Downtown, Midtown San Antonio is a quieter and calmer escape for locals. While the neighborhood is known for its suburban vibe, friendly atmosphere, and beautifully-constructed homes, it is more walkable than other San Antonio neighborhoods. It also comes alive on the weekend– adding to its mixed, urban/suburban style. Depending on which stretch you find yourself, many parts of Midtown can be accessed relatively easily by foot or bike.

Another unique aspect of living in Midtown is that it encompasses several smaller neighborhoods that all present a unique vibe. This collection of pocket districts contributes to the diversity of restaurants, bars, activities, and people in this section of San Antonio. Midtown continues to evolve, without losing the beautiful remnants of its history.
