The community of Hillcrest is situated near the convergence of several major roadways in San Antonio, Texas. These include Interstates 10 and 410 and U.S. Highway 87. The zip code for Hillcrest is 78201. It is part of Bexar County.
Due to the intersection of these major roadways, the Hillcrest area is sometimes referred to as “the crossroads.” To the south of the intersection is the Crossroads Mall and the Crossroads Shopping Center of San Antonio. In this bargain center, you’ll find discount stores like Burlington Coat Factory and Stein Mart, as well as a Super Target and Hobby Lobby. This retail area is also well known for its theater, which offers independent films and art-house gems that larger cinemas often overlook in favor of major blockbusters. Where there is shopping, there is usually dining, and the Hillcrest area is no exception. You’ll find sit-down restaurants as well as fast-food establishments in the area. If you like a little fun and games with your food, there is also a Dave & Buster’s.
Another prominent feature of the Hillcrest area is its close proximity to several major area health care facilities. The Texas Heart Hospital is situated in the crossroads area, and a hub of facilities is located along Medical Drive to the northwest. Among these are the Methodist Specialty Transplant Hospital, Christus Santa Rosa Medical Center, Southwest Texas Medical Center, University Hospital, and Methodist Hospital.
Adjacent to this health care extravaganza is the Oak Hills Country Club. This private golf club is one of the oldest and most recognized clubs of its kind in the U.S. The first two Texas Opens (1961 and 1962) were played here, where golf legend Arnold Palmer took home the big prize.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all that the Hillcrest area has to offer. Thanks to the close proximity to several major roadways, area residents enjoy easy access to everything that San Antonio has to offer.
