Just south of downtown San Antonio, the King William Historic District is just one part of this art-heavy community, packed with galleries, cafes, bars, antique and thrift stores and artist lofts. At the Blue Star Contemporary Art Center, next door to the Blue Star Brewing Company, mixed use residential and business housing is the norm. A showcase of locally made products and art called Second Saturday takes over South Flores Street once and month and an annual art fair, S.M.A.R.T. also supports area artists.

The area is also home to Palo Alto College and Texas A&M University-San Antonio. Shopping venues include South Park Mall, with its major national chain stores, and the McCreless Mall, an open-air shopping center that includes a Cinemark Theaters venue. For outdoor recreation, the Medina River Recreation area beckons with trails and picnic spots.
