Guide to Monte Vista Historical District

Reputation: Elegant and moneyed. Main Drag: North Saint Mary’s Street. Lowdown: Monte Vista Historic District is filled with striking mansion estates that were built between 1890 and 1930 by oilmen and cattle barons. Viewing of the homes alone, many of which boast Victorian, Tudor, Neoclassical or Italian Renaissance architecture, is worth the drive through this neighborhood, although it’s likely to make many green with envy (roads with great home-viewing potential include East Gramercy, West Agarita and East French). Located just slightly north of downtown San Antonio, this neighborhood is more family-centric, with community-wide annual events like Easter egg hunts and Fourth of July celebrations among others. Many of the area’s most renowned bed & breakfasts are located here, as well as an array of excellent restaurants. Hotspots: Salute International Bar, Limelight, White Rabbit, Casbeers, Joey’s, Demo’s Greek Restaurant. More
