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. It is family friendly and still has a somewhat small town feel even with the rapid growth rate. Boerne has a variety of eating establishments and is a quick commute to San Antonio. The night life is improving as new breweries, wineries, and outdoor venues come to town. From a parent's perspective, the schools are great. There are seven elementary schools, three middle schools, and two high schools to chose from. All of which have high expectations from their students.
I've lived here 16 years, but still, no matter how long you've lived here, Boerne will always have something new to show you. There's so much culture in and around this place you will never get tired of it. The best part of the week is when the whole town comes together for Friday Night Lights. The passion for football soaring through Boerne's streets is unmatched. Right when you cross those city limits into the german town, you know you've entered a place where everyone knows everyone's name and no one feels left out. And absolutely no one has a problem with going to Whataburger at 3:00 in the morning because this is Texas and everyone is family. I'm sad to be soon saying goodbye because know town that I will ever live in in the future will come close to olde town Boerne.
