Fun place for eats, bike riding or shopping. South town is best known for its hipster vibe as well. Nice little bars and eateries too.

If you're looking for a truer taste of San Antonio than what is offered at the Riverwalk then head over to Southtown. It's not far (a little more than walking but close) from the downtown hotels and offers true SA flavors. Try Rosario's for local mexican cuisine, Mad Hatter's for a different take, Taco Haven or The Friendly Spot for... More

Just south of king Williams district the city is slowly moving south. The area has great restaurants but not much in the tourist trade. Requires a car to be able to see the area properly.

I'm not from Texas but work has led me here for a short while. After lots of looking around I decided to get a loft in the South Town area. I was uncertain because I have never done "urban living." But shockingly, so far I LOVE this area. You can't truly judge it until you've found all it nooks and... More

Perfectly charming neighborhood w/just the right amount flavor. I encountered ZERO attitude, had a very good bowl of tortilla soup & cold beer at Tito's. Walked the King William District...the homes are beautiful. Stopped by the Madhatter for a tall cup of hot coffee for the walk back to my hotel. I did all this at dusk and by the... More

finally gave it a shot, its basally a neighborhood with, crap roads. fenced in yards and over grown yards. the so called restaurants are nothing but glorified over priced food trucks. Also i would highly suggest you not visit the area at night. I felt very unsafe walking around at night. I was happy i didn't bring my car (no... More

Adjacent to the King William area, Southtown offers a variety of food options. Many are only open for dinner so plan ahead if you are looking for a place for breakfast or lunch. I noticed a couple of tourists getting dropped off by cabs on S. Alamo street and kind of turn in a circle trying to figure out what... More

It's trying to be cool. Went to First Friday for the first time. Will probably go back when it's not quite so hot. Need some live bands outdoors to bump up the cool factor. Keep trying. I have high hopes for the area as more find this semi-precious gem.
