"The Good, the Bad, and the Road Construction"
The north part of San Pedro is by 410 and the San Antonio Airport, but it is absolutely horrible with road construction. Plus, getting on and off of 281 from San Antonio can be confusing. The construction has been going on as long as I can remember and it never seems to get finished. North Star Mall is a good mall with upscale stores, and has the famous giant cowboy boots out front. There is other big box shopping in the area. Farther south on San Pedro is downtown and some cute shops and restaurants. Parts of San Pedro between 410/North Star Mall and the downtown area can get a little shady. Used to be the most upscale shopping area in town, now there are much nicer places to go to if you want to shop.
"San Pedro, San Antonio's main street"
San Pedro is probably San Antonio's main street, wide and mostly well-lit, the home of tons of businesses including restaurants and auto dealerships, and San Antonio College, the main junior college just north of downtown. North Star Mall is located at the corner of San Pedro and Loop 410, not too far from the airport. Eventually, north of the Loop San Pedro merges with Highway 281, aka McAllister Freeway.
