Containing the main campus of University of Texas at San Antonio, the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and the Northwest Campus of the University of the Incarnate Word, Northwest is a draw for students in the San Antonio area.

The Medical Center District is also a part of this suburban community, which is the location of the South Texas Medical Center. A bustling business hub as well, USAA, Valero and NuStar Energy are among the major corporations located here.

It’s not all business and academics in this part of town: Six Flags Fiesta Texas is also located here, offering thrill rides and fun. Shopping is anchored by the national chains and local shops at The Shops at La Cantera.
