Small town, 30 minute drive outside of San Antonio, TX. Historic district, plenty wine tasting bars, good eats, playgrounds, many parks and lakes for the outdoorsy, and great school district. It is one of the fastest growing cities in the country.

Cons: NO NIGHTLIFE. At all. I mean, It is a small town with older residents, so what can you expect. There is nowhere to eat except for the tourist-oriented restaurants in town which are $$$. Real estate is also increasing in this small town...yikes!

Overall, Boerne is a great, friendly, small town to visit, or retire.
For teens and young adults, Boerne can get a bit crammed and small, as there isn't much to do.

Boerne is a great community to raise a family in! I have been living in Boerne since I was 4 years old, and it was so much. It also not far from San Antonio if you want to visit a bigger city. The school district is wonderful and gives an amazing education. The main street is a fun place to walk around and dine in beautiful restaurants. I completly recommend to live here to raise a family.
I love how nice everyone is and how cute the town is! Having lunch at soda pops, which has amazing burgers and watching kids play! Walking by the river with the ducks or walking by the shops on the main street. It is just overall really great!
