Located slightly less than 45 miles southeast of Kerrville, and less than 25 minutes travel time from the suburban centers and amenities of San Antonio, the city has become a major tourist destination. The city’s popularity is based on the establishment of many quaint shops offering antique and eclectic shopping in the historic downtown section. From golfing to nature to sports to kids activities and so much more…there’s something for everyone! Boerne mixes its historic past and small-town ambiance with new city folk who are seeking an area where natural beauty abounds and where the quality of life and open-space environments are valued.
Part of the ambiance of this town is the historic Plaza where the community still congregates for concerts, festivals, and commerce. The community has a strong focus on providing high-quality services to both long-term and new residents alike. An emphasis exists regarding the upgrade of senior and youth services / programs. The city has six parks with organized sports and recreational opportunities in abundance. High school and youth sports draw large, enthusiastic, and friendly crowds. Once called the key to the hills, Boerne is situated on the east side of Interstate 10 about 22 miles northwest of San Antonio.
