Live Oak’s success is a great example of the benefits of location, location, location. Incorporated in 1960, the city is located 15 miles northeast of downtown San Antonio, at the intersection of Interstate 35 and Loop 1604 North in northeast Bexar County. Live Oak offers a central location from which to visit the region’s major destination and tourism centers, such as Randolph Air Force Base, The Alamo, The Riverwalk, Fiesta Texas, and Sea World.
With a current population base of over 420,000 within the Randolph Metrocom, average household incomes of $68,712, traffic counts of over 200,000 along IH-35 and Loop 1604, and with near 20,000 new homes being planned in the corridor, Live Oak is focused at building upon its existing economic industries and in attracting other high quality commercial development to this strategic regional business hub.
