What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Selma

I like that we have a lot of family small business in the area. Our favorite place to go is Big Pappa's

I love how close I am to everything (stores, highway, etc.) I also like that we live near the schools so that my son has options for how to get there (car ride, walk, bike, etc.).

Our neighborhood keeps an eye out for each other. If we see something suspicious we report it. The police are present a lot and make things safer for everyone

I can safely walk around the neighborhood, walk my dog, run, etc.Good social order and a solid house give me a sense of security to live here.

We live 5 minutes away from the closest hwy and shopping centers, but it still feels secluded and safe. Our neighbors are very friendly and look out for each other. There are also two parks within walking distance and a community pool behind our house.

McDonald's and the uc park near by that our kids love going to all the time it's a very good place from caves and such

All About

Living in Selma, TX

Right on the outskirts of the San Antonio metropolitan area is the Selma, a unique city that offers a suburban way of living for apartment hunters everywhere.

First settled in 1847, Selma was the location of the Harrison and Brown Stagecoach Stop, which transported travelers and freight around the state of Texas. Its first post office opened in 1856, and as population increased with the arrival of German and Polish immigrants, the city eventually grew to what it is now, with 788 local residents. Today, Selma is composed of different commercial establishments along with its apartments and houses for a suburban feel that's great for any family size.

Located only 20 minutes northeast of San Antonio, the city of Selma is actually a popular destination for many apartment dwellers around the metropolitan area. It is situated right on I-35, which meanders right into downtown San Antonio, and people visit the neighborhood because it is home to the Retama Racetrack, where they can enjoy a day of horseracing. Gates open for simulcasting at 10:30 a.m. every day so race fans can come early and bet on their favorites.

Selma is also the location of the Verizon Wireless Ampitheater, perfect for apartment hunters who are into the music scene. The venue can hold up to 20,000 people, and has been a host to several memorable music festivals such as the Mayhem Festival, Projekt Revolution and Ozzfest.
