Alamo Heights is the site of many new beginnings, from the origination of the San Antonio River headwaters to becoming an independent municipality in 1922. It's also a great place for families to find their new beginning, something that Kuper Sotheby's Realtor Gina Candelario is more than happy to help with.
"It's an incredibly charming neighborhood," she says. "We love the sense of community and convenience. The school district also drew me to this area when we originally moved here."
And with good reason — the Alamo Heights Independent School District is one of the best in the state, with one of the top tennis teams in the country.
Candelario has gotten to know Alamo Heights extremely well throughout her career, with nearly 20 years of experience selling in Inside 410 and ranking the No. 1 agent in the Alamo Heights Kuper Sotheby's International Realty office.
Below are a few of Candelario's picks for the best spots in this hot area, as well as a hot listing that could turn you into a 78209 resident.
Eating and drinking
Like most locals, Candelario is a fixture at Cappyccino's. There's also Sorrento's, Bistr09, Broadway Daily Bread, and Paloma Blanca — definitely not a shortage of eateries to enjoy.
Arts and culture
Alamo Heights is the gateway to the Museum Reach, the Pearl, the San Antonio Zoo, the historic Brackenridge Golf Course, and the San Antonio Botanical Gardens.
Svelte Veldt Home, MOSS Designer Consignment, and Sloan/Hall are a few favorites.
Outdoors and recreation
All three of Candelario's older children were in the tennis program at AHISD, but their athletic prowess didn't stop there. Her younger son can often be found at the Alamo Heights Little League baseball fields or the Alamo Heights swimming pool. There are also plenty of walking trails and a community garden for enjoying the temperate weather.
