Not only is Randolph a great place to work the local community is also a great place to live. The cities of Universal City Live Oak Selma Schertz and Cibolo are directly adjacent to RAFB and most workers live in these suburban communities. There are three other school districts that support the area as well; Judson Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City and North East ISD. The East Central district has some small neighborhoods but very few local neighborhoods. There are also two major shopping areas within 5 miles of base; The Forum is a collection of large national brands such as Best Buy Target Bed Bath & Beyond with about 80 total stores and Rolling Oaks mall is an indoor mall with Macy's Sears JC Penney and the usual assortment of mall stores and food court. As Melissa states below it is very convenient to travel into San Antonio to enjoy the history and many festivals hosted through the year. In the other direction is New Braunfels which host the world's best known water park - Schlitterbahn. IT also has a diverse entertainment variety so between the two you won't be bored. And the Capitol City of Austin is only 45 minutes up IH35. So get ready to enjoy a great tour and you may end up like many of us and staying here.

We decided to retire here and live in Schertz. It has been named one of the top 40 small towns to live in by CNN-Money magazine and hosts a wonderful sense of community. Being a close neighbor to Randolph and Ft Sam it is naturally run by a team of former and retired military so you always feel good here.

And if you are coming to town and need assistance with houseing call and we can take care of you. We own RE/MAX Corridor and are a fll service Veteran friendly real estate firm. 210-659-6700. Welcome to Texas!

We have been stationed at randolph now for 5 years and it has been by far the best assignment we have had since being a military family. San Antonio is huge with a lot to do. You have Sea World Six Flags the Zoo The San Antonio Children's Museum and the Mckenna Children's Museum (which I prefer).

Traffic is a beast here and it seems like most everyone is an aggressive driver. So if you haven't been in a large city before San Antonio takes some getting used to.

Luckily Randolph is located on a nicer part of San Antonio. Really if you never wanted to venture out into the city you wouldn't have to. You have large shopping centers beautiful parks (I would reccomend Woodcrest and the Live Oak park in Live Oak) movie theaters and tons of restaurants.

The base itself has a HUGE BX/Commisary. It was just finished with in the past year (2010/2011) and offers a Spa Salon barbershop gamestop florist and several other shops. Also the clinic has their satalite pharmacy in the BX to pick up refills.
