This is what makes Olmos the perfect location, especially if you want a more affordable living experience and the ability to commute San Antonio for work or to take in the sights.

Olmos Park is surrounded by San Antonio, which means living here gives you the advantages of both a small town and a big city at the same time.

It’s helpful to know the phone numbers, addresses and policies of the various services in town, from fire and police to the public works department and municipal court.

Chances are, you’ll want to check out some books at some point while you’re here, especially if you have kids. You’ll have to make a quick hop over to the Landa Library in San Antonio. It’s located near Alamo Heights and Olmos Park, sitting within the Monte Vista Historical District. While you’re there, take a side trip to the San Antonio Zoo, Witte Museum, Trinity University or Brackenridge Park.

They assisted in packing my apartment and moving it, quick and efficient. Great people to talk to and to be around. We worked with both Jon and John, they tackled the hard situation of moving in Texas heat and no ac in our apartment with no complaints and got everything moved over to out new place faster than I expected. Definitely will be using their services again in the future!

Julian and John were great. They took very good care of my belongings and completed my moved within the amount of time I had estimated. They drove safely to the destination and were very polite, answering almost everything with "sir." That was just the move. I had a major family medical emergency near Austin the Sunday before my move and Guillermo was compassionate and helpful in adjusting my move to the times that suited me. After 4 days of exceptional stress, I had a moment of frustration and abrasively responded to something Guillermo said and he didn't flinch. I'm pretty OCD about my stuff but it looks to have all made it without damage to anything. 10/10 Excellent work
