San Antonio’s Top Locations for Young Professionals

While San Antonio is known for its “family friendly” vibes, many young professionals and post-graduate city-dwellers are discovering pockets of the city that cater specifically to them. Whether you’re seeking a chic, trendy neighborhood, a low-key family home, or an artsy bungalow, San Antonio’s young professional communities are up-and-coming, ensuring that you can find a neighborhood that suits your needs!

Many young professionals are seeking a space with urban energy: easy access to travel, an active nightlife, and a community of other young professionals. These types of urban homes generally tend to be either artsy or upscale (and occasionally both). Areas like Monte Vista, Tobin Hill, downtown San Antonio, and even Alamo Heights come to mind as classic young professional neighborhoods, offering trendy boutiques and established businesses. For those seeking the more “artsy” post-graduate lifestyle, neighborhoods like Southtown, Lavaca, and King William offer a unique alternative culture and an active art scene. Many of these neighborhoods feature walking and biking paths, green spaces, a city view, and access to downtown events such as weekly farmers markets.


Many young professionals call the eccentric neighborhood of Southtown home.

While many young professionals idealize an urban, fast-pasted lifestyle, many others are drawn to a more low-key environment. The Stone Oak area remedies these two, providing plenty of restaurants, shopping, and conveniences while resting on the outer loop, away from the noise and clutter of the city. The area also offers many housing options ranging from condo complexes and townhomes such as The Heights of Stone Oak, The 7th of Sonterra, and Champion’s Village to single family home neighborhoods such as Las Lomas, Stone Oak Meadows, and Stone Mountain. Homes in the La Cantera area, such as Eckhert Place Condominiums, Terra View Townhomes, and the neighborhoods of Red Robin, College Park, Sonoma Ranch, and Walden Heights provide the same low-key atmosphere while remaining close to USAA, UTSA, and a good deal of shopping and restaurants.

Overall, young professionals need not look too far in San Antonio for a neighborhood that fuses both personal preferences and a professional atmosphere.
