The various districts and neighborhoods of San Antonio spread out from the central downtown area, which is best known for the Alamo, Riverwalk and Tower of the Americas. Nearby is Alamo Heights, which is actually its own city despite being completely surrounded by San Antonio. Alamo Heights is home to many popular museums in the area, and is the location of the San Antonio Zoo. Nestled between these two entertaining hot spots is Midtown, one of the most historic areas in San Antonio. The beautifully restored old homes and variety of parks and gardens make it a picturesque place to live. Neighborhoods in Midtown each feature their own architectural theme, including French Eclectic and Italian Renaissance. The Far West Side, where you'll find Sea World San Antonio, is currently the fastest growing area of the city with many new developments and homes for middle-class families and first time home buyers.

Deep in the heart of Texas lies San Antonio, also known as the Alamo City and the self-proclaimed Cradle of Liberty.
