"Quiet, '70s gem, close to tons of shopping and food"

Town Creek Street, or as the sign says Towncreek Drive, is a hidden spot in the middle of everything but as quiet and peaceful as can be. Our street ends with a cul-de-sac and is accessed from a dead-end street, making it as peaceful and traffic free as is possible. During my few years here, no one on the block throws giant parties. Most cars are parked in their driveways, but the street is wide enough to accommodate cars parked across from each other anyways. The entire street is lined with towering oak and ash trees, typical for the area. The architecture is varied with houses ranging from the 80s to 140s. There are very few children on the street. Many people drive nice cars - Miatas, Cadillacs, Jaguars. Most of the families are retired or young couples.

The only downside is the planes landing at the nearby air port fly overhead when landing, but they are not noticeable from inside the home and typically stop flying in the evening and weekends so are only noticeable during the middle of the day if you are outside. Even then, they are quiet rare. The planes taking off (when they make the most noise...) is not in our direction. I assume that is to the Southeast somewhere.

Easy access to 410, 151, US90, I10, Ingram, Callaghan and Culebra. This street could not be in a more perfect spot for getting from your front door to work quickly and easily. Because of its Northwest location, there is almost no traffic on the major roads in the area.

All the shopping you could possibly want! We are across the highway from Ingram Park Mall and the slew of shopping centers next door - BestBuy, Barnes and Noble, Circuit City, Bed Bath and Beyond, etc. You have your choice of 3 HEB locations. I prefer the one on Bandera and 410 since it is closest but only open till midnight. (Not to mention, they have sushi!) For those very late night grocery shopping trips, I head over to the one at Marbach and 410. There is also a La Fiesta less than a mile away, but I don't really like their selection, but their prices cannot be beat. For the quick fix a Wal-Greens is also literally around the corner.

Places to eat - all the major chains are represented near the Ingram/Callaghan intersection - McDonalds, Dairy Queen, Pizza Hut, Whataburger, Churches Chicken, Jack-in-the-Box, Wendy's, Burger King, Taco Cabana and Sonic. Some are open 24/7. We are at the end of Culebra which has tons of authentic TexMex restaurants. Despite eating out almost every day, I still have not tried all of them. Every time I drive down Culebra I see another I haven't visited yet. For other eateries, you'll have to leave the immediate vicinity. Off 410 you'll find all the usual casual dining experiences - Bennigan's, IHOP (x2), Jim's (x2), Texas Roadhouse... and tons more. For fine dining and non-chain + non-TexMex, you'll have to venture outside the neighborhood.

There is also an excellent Jiffy Lube at Bandera and 410 for regular car maintenance.
