Bandera Reviews

3 reviews
Bandera is a small town. If you don't mind the nearly hour long commute to San Antonio, it's a great place to be. There's not much to do, but crime is low, you can see the stars at night (even the Milky Way), and people will definitely stop while you're out for a walk to have a chat. If you like cowboys, even better, because this is the "Cowboy Capital of the World"!
Review Bandera
Bandera is a small but fun town. One can really never be bored with the events that the town hosts. There would be at least one sort of event every month, including the riverfest. If that's not enough, one go to the many bars and restaurants located within the city limit. The bad thing about Bandera, though,is that traffic is crazy for a liitle town. Bandera needs to improve the traffic flow, especially since there really is one major street that most people drive through.
Nice small town get away. Good community interaction. Good school with great athletic program. Caring place and popular Winter Texan destination.
