If you are looking for apartments in northwest San Antonio areas such as Helotes, Leon Valley or Shavano Park, you should have plenty of good options available. Helotes is a small, but lovely community that has good access to the city. It is perfect for those who want to be near everything without being in the middle of it. Similarly, Shavano Park is a little bit removed from the city center, yet close enough to be extremely convenient. It is a bit more to the north than Helotes, which is really more northwest of San Antonio’s downtown.
Leon Valley is a bit of a different story. With a population of about 10,000 people, this town is very close to San Antonio–in fact it was almost annexed to the city at one time. This means that city amenities are all around the area. The town is close to Sea World, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Ingram Park Mall and St. Mary’s University, as well as numerous dining and entertainment options. This area is more for the person who wants to be in the middle of it all, but who likes a little bit of independence as well. No matter what city you choose in this region, you will be pleased with the amount of things there are to see and do close by.
