Did you know Boerne, TX transforms into a magical holiday town this time of year?! Neither did we until we packed our bags for a little weekend getaway.
Boerne is a little town about 35 minutes outside of San Antonio and about 3 and a half hours from Houston. It is filled with pockets of beautiful nature, delicious restaurants, natural caverns, local shops & boutiques, and every year around this time, they go all out for Christmas. All the buildings and shops are twinkling with lights, there's a huge Christmas tree right in Main Plaza, and they have events going on all season long.
If you're looking for a little change of scenery in the coming weeks, here are 5 top things to do in Boerne, TX.
1. Stroll, shop, and eat down the Hill Country Mile.
2. Get festive at Old West Christmas Light Fest.
3. Sip on some beer at one of the local breweries.
4. Explore and hike through Cibolo Nature Center.
5. Discover the exquisite cave formations underground at Cave without a name or Cascade Caverns.

*COVID restrictions & requirements: Wearing masks inside is strictly enforced, and the city has installed hand sanitization stations throughout their downtown area. We felt completely safe the entire time and were relieved to see everyone respecting the rules.
