A treasure nestled in the magnificent setting of the Texas Hill Country, Boerne (pronounced “Bur-nee”) is only minutes north of San Antonio, via Interstate 10.
German immigrants first settled this land near the cool waters of the Cibolo Creek over 150 years ago. Boerne’s beginnings are evident in the old stone buildings with narrow windows, steep gables, outside stairways and gardens. Today, more than 140 historic structures remain. The city’s friendly people show a deep respect for their cultural and ancestral heritage.
A stroll down Haupstrasse (Main Street in German) through Boerne’s charming historic district offers a world of specialty shops including great antiques, fine home accessories, unique gift items, trendy boutiques, jewelry and art galleries.
Intermingled among the shopping, visitors experience the inviting aromas from a hometown bakery or “catch up on the latest” at one of the local coffee shops. While taking in the ambiance of this thriving small town, visitors may choose to relax at one of the local wine bars or enjoy a brew at the brewhaus on the creek.
The cypress-lined Cibolo Creek flows through downtown Boerne and continues on to the nationally recognized Cibolo Nature Center. Hiking trails and a boardwalk allow visitors to explore 100 acres with four distinct ecosystems – grassland, marshland, woodland and river bottom.
Year round parades, festivals and cultural events fill the air with music and merriment. The Kendall County Fair, Chocolate Walk, Berges Fest, Wings Over Boerne, Parade of Artists, Cibolo Songs & Stories, Abendkonzerte, Weihnachts Fest, Dickens on Main, Boerne Market Days and the Key to the Hills Rod Run are some of the activities that draw people from near and far away.
For unique and memorable Hill Country experiences, Boerne offers 475 sleeping accommodations including hotel chains, quaint bed and breakfasts, historic hotels and a destination resort with a conference center.
A visit to Boerne is not complete without sampling the unique cuisine, ranging from Texas barbeque and home style cooking to fine dining.
With Boerne’s central location, it is an ideal “getaway” destination, especially for the leisure visitor. Boerne is a convenient drive from several major Texas cities such as San Antonio, Austin, Houston and Dallas via interstate or scenic back roads. The back roads are especially lovely in the spring when wildflowers bloom.
Over the past several years, Boerne has become a desirable day trip destination for San Antonians and visitors alike. Because of its close proximity to major attractions such as Fiesta Texas, Sea World, the San Antonio Riverwalk and the #1 Texas attraction; the Alamo, Boerne is the nearest and best opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
