We moved here in 2009 after being stationed at Lackland. I did extensive research on safety and schools. We made the long commute to Lackland for work from Cibolo for quality of life and it was the best decision we've ever made. We absolutely love our neighborhood. I got divorced in 2013 and my neighbors, knowing that I was now a single mother, have been wonderful. I love how safe my children and I feel here. The town is growing quickly and traffic is a nightmare on 35 as I work in the city BUT it is by far worth it for the peace of mind and quality of life that Cibolo provides. Lovely parks, plenty of community events, very family friendly. The police are exceptional in this community and do well to keep us all safe. We love loving in Cibolo and are very grateful to our city officials for making it a wonderful place to live!

I've lived in Cibolo my entire life, and it feels average in most ways. If you want the white-picket-fence suburb life, Cibolo is probably a good place for you! My biggest issue has been with my neighbors, and my HOA does nothing to enforce their rules (there are two houses on my street that are rented out to a group of pilot trainees every month despite that being against the HOA and my neighbor's dog never stops barking and they don't do anything about it). The schools could be improved, but they're pretty nice compared to a lot of other cities' schools.
Cibolo is a great town with a rustic and very enjoyable downtown street. Cibolo is small business friendly and also family friendly since there are so many safe subdivisions located there. In addition, Cibolo is a growing community with a large pet hospital soon to open and a recently opened Walmart that is easily accessible to the community. Cibolo is a town where friendly waves from neighbors are encouraged and not only San Antonio but New Braunfels are only a short drives away. The city of Cibolo is a great place for growing families and fresh starts because families have the option to build their own homes with new subdivisions or purchase already exisiting homes in this great area.
