I've lived in La Vernia, Tx. Throughout the last 2 years and have enjoyed the people, weather, scenery, and mostly the food. People here are nice, private and friendly. The school district is amazing!

La Vernia was where i grew up my whole life. I wouldn't have had it any other way! Very nice town with super friendly people, and a great size. I always feel safe also and at home. Great place for families.
I moved to La Vernia from San Antonio, which is only about 20 minutes from town and it was the best decision we have ever made. We used to live in a subdivision with a HOA which limited us to so much of we wanted to do in our home. We now live on 3 acres with 3 horses and can have as many animals as we want and basically do what we want without being told what we can and can not do on our property. Neighbors are very friendly and the area is serene and peaceful.
