It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, and San Antonio boasts five areas that would make even Mr. Rogers want to pick up and move. That's according to apartment search website RentLingo, which created heat maps across the country to determine which local neighborhoods have the most charm.

RentLingo zeroed in on San Antonio's city center to come up with the five neighborhoods with the most appeal. Using a 100-point system to establish charm levels, the outcome is based on things like how well liked businesses are in the area, what types of amenities are nearby, and how expensive the neighborhood is.

The five most charming San Antonio neighborhoods are downtown (80 points), Alamo Heights (79), Olmos Park (78), King William (77), and Tobin Hill (76).

Downtown’s bustling nightlife and River Walk accessibility contribute to its appeal. Trendy Alamo Heights and Olmos Park make the charming list due to their endless local restaurants and shops as well as Olmos Basin Park.

King William’s up-and-coming dining and cultural arts scenes play a major role in upping the charm of the neighborhood, while Tobin Hill makes the list due to the San Antonio College campus and its proximity to cute cafes, parks, and museums.

Ultimately inspired by local culture, each of these neighborhoods offers a unique taste of San Antonio charm. If you’re planning a move sometime soon, reference RentLingo’s charm index heat map before you settle on your next neighborhood.
