Located about 47 miles northeast of San Antonio, South Canyon Lake offers traditional homes and townhouses for rent, some with stunning views of Canyon Lake itself. Outdoor opportunities abound in this neighborhood. Tee up on the weekends at the 18-hole Lakeside Golf Club, where beginners find its hilly terrains wonderfully challenging. For more outdoor enjoyment, watch spectacular sunrises and sunsets at Cranes Mill Park on the peninsula. Launch your boat from any of the Canyon Lake boat ramps and spend a long afternoon on the Guadalupe River. When dining out, head to Gennaro's Trattoria to sample the fine foods of southern Italy. If you crave a kitty companion for your new apartment, go to Acappella Bengals, a cattery that specializes in gorgeous jaguar-spotted cats.
