I work in the heart of San Antonio for the most part, but I do travel around in the immediate area a lot as well. It was during one of those days where I was out of the office more than I was in that I came across Outlook Canyon, which is a really nice apartment complex that is located in a gorgeous area here in San Antonio. Though I had a decent apartment at that time, I still decided to go on their website to see what all they offer there.
I was really surprised to find out just how many amenities are included for anyone who lives there. There are the typical things like a resort like swimming pool and a fitness center, but there are more too. There is a billiards room, which is right up my alley as I have been shooting pool for nearly 20 years. Having access to a table right on the property grounds was what nudged me into filling out an application there. I cannot say that was the only thing that had me filling out the paperwork, but it was a huge factor in my decision.
There is also a pet park, and the school district is top notch. These things matter, because my wife and I have two dogs and two children. I put the dogs first because it is often hard to find a place that will allow them since they are both pretty big for their breed. My wife looked at the apartment layouts for the three bedroom units, and she really liked what she saw. Our kids got pretty psyched when they saw everything here too, and that is why we are in the process of moving there now. We should be calling it home by the end of the week!
