If you don’t find rentals in San Antonio that are to your liking, perhaps you may want to take a closer look at places that are outside the city. Fair Oaks Ranch is located to the northeast of San Antonio, and it is a town that can be a great alternative to living in the urban area. With a population of approximately 5,700 people, this city is only 93 miles from Austin and 27 miles from downtown San Antonio. A network of roadways in the area makes getting from Fair Oaks Ranch to other areas in the region an easy task, so you’ll never be too far from a big-city downtown.
There are golf courses and other types of outdoor recreation opportunities in this area, adding to the appeal of living a bit more off the beaten path. Those looking for access to higher education will be pleased to know that there are many schools serving in the area. Some of these include St. Mary’s University, Trinity University, the University of Texas at San Antonio and University of Texas Health Science Center. Although Fair Oaks Ranch is a smaller town, it certainly has a location that makes sense.
