Castle Hills, Texas, is a charming and largely residential community located about 10 miles north of city centre San Antonio, yet completely surrounded by the city. The plentiful water sourced from the Olmos Creek attracted the families who originally settled the area in the 1920s, and many of them were connected to Texas’s burgeoning oil industry.

The area continued to grow, and today it is a thriving independent town of over 4,100 residents. This vibrant community makes for a great base camp for families wanting to explore the greater San Antonio area.
