Incorporated since 1981, Helotes is it’s own city just outside 1604 in Northwest San Antonio. Since then it has grown into a thriving community, while still maintaining the rugged country charm that made it famous. As one of the most desirable suburbs of San Antonio, Helotes features a wide variety of homes from new construction, to "ranchettes" to ranch-style homes to historic properties. There is plenty to do from visiting a winery, to prime dining to country western dancing at one of the original honky-tonks. The community is also located in the top ranked Northside Independent School District and its location makes for easy access to UTSA.
