Monte Vista Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Monte Vista is a community with historic homes in the heart of the city. Located in the 78212 zip code, it is surrounded by its sister communities: the King William District and Lavaca. The area’s residences date back to the 1890s, and the tiny 14-block community takes pride in the upkeep and restoration of these architectural pieces of history. Monte Vista offers all types and style of homes and is a highly desirable area to live.
The Monte Vista community participates in the King William District annual street fair every April and has tours of its local homes every December. Only moments away from Brakenridge Park, the community is surrounded by natural beauty. Nearby activities include the San Antonio Zoo, Botanical Gardens, Tea Gardens, and local cultural institutes like the Witte and McNay museums. Early-evening entertainment can be found at the San Antonio Playhouse, featuring plays and shows, as well as at the Majestic Theater downtown, a popular venue for traveling Broadway shows and plays. Monte Vista is also close to the events for First Friday (held in Hemisphere Park downtown on the first Friday of every month), where residents can enjoy music and homemade arts and crafts from local vendors.
Monte Vista is also nearby to San Antonio College, Trinity University, and the University of the Incarnate Word, which borders the municipal golf course and is near the San Antonio Country Club and major shopping malls and boutiques.
Nightlife in Monte Vista comes in a wide variety, thanks to downtown San Antonio. With nightclubs, pubs, and dance clubs littered up and down the strip of the Riverwalk and nearby San Pedro Avenue, there are plenty of choices for Monte Vista residents.
