Fair Oaks


If you are moving to the San Antonio, Texas area and a place outside of the city center appeals to you, then consider making the city of Fair Oaks Ranch your new home. This affluent part of the greater San Antonio area is a smart choice if you prefer a smaller city. Located just 27 miles north of downtown San Antonio, Fair Oaks Ranch keeps you close enough to San Antonio for nightlife, culture, and the other amenities that come with a big city. Yet, you get the benefit of the cozy community that comes with living in a much smaller city. 


This wealthy city does not have any famous residents, attractions, or any real historical significance that would lead anyone to know of it. Though you might find it interesting that the town's name came from Ralph Fair, Sr., who acquired the land that makes up present day Fair Oaks Ranch back in the 1930's. He owned some racehorses and cattle, but also worked in the oil industry. It wasn't until the 1970's that his family established the community. The rest, as they say, is history.


As you can see, the city of Fair Oaks Ranch has a lot to offer someone looking to move to the greater San Antonio area. If a smaller city appeals to you, then this just might be the perfect place for your new home. 


Though it is small in size, there are a few cultural institutions in the Fair Oaks Ranch area that residents can enjoy. Dance Dominion at 28765 Interstate 10 W. is a good place for people who enjoy dance performances. The Fair Oaks Country Club at 7900 Fair Oaks Pkwy is a good place for those who enjoy golfing. Though there are no public libraries in the Fair Oaks Ranch city limits, two are located nearby in San Antonio and Boerne. Other nearby facilities of interest in Boerne include Dickens on Main festival; Boerne Community Theatre at 907 E. Blanco Road; Tejas Rodeo at 401 Obst Road; Texas Treasures Fine Art Gallery at 605 S Main Street; and JR Mooney Galleries Of Fine Art at 305 S Main Street.
