Downtown San Antonio- Remember the Alamo! There are tons of great restaurants, clubs, and bars in the downtown San Antonio area! Also there is the famous riverwalk, most of the residences you will find in the heart of Downtown San Antonio are found in luxury high rise condominiums- Such as the Alteza Residences and the Vidorra.  You can get to all areas of the city quickly but finding a home in the very heart of downtown is not something you will usually see.
