We have seen many beautiful pictures of downtown SA. But we are wondering if anyone has pictures of other places around SA. Boerne, Helotes, Bulverde, and La Vernia? What about the parks or the lakes and rivers? Do any of you go fishing and have wonderful pictures to share? We are planning to visit this summer. We also have some questions. Like we mentioned before, we are looking to live where we can have horses but also we want to be close enough to SA where our kids (when they grow-up) can drive into SA's University. Our perfect place would have close enough stores to go get groceries and quick supplies (Walmart, Target etc.) Good schools are a plus and low crime. Which of the above places best fit our requirements? We've re-searched La Vernia but it seems very small so far and it sounds like it is 30 minutes away from SA. It would be a little hard I guess to drive 30 minutes to go to a Walmart for a quick supply. Please keep in mind that we are Hispanic. Thanks a lot!!!!!

Seguin is near La Vernia and it actually has many stores including Tractor Supply and HEB. I used to go to Hastings to rent movies and video games as a kid when I stayed with my grandparents in New Berlin. Seguin has completly changed it's just like Castroville. They were small towns now they are growing into larger cities.

I lived in La Vernia for many years 14 to be exact. It was small but know it is exploding with growth. The school is one of the best around Texas Recognized. Anyway they have a mom and pop grocer in La Vernia also to dollar stores. There is an HEB and Wal-Mart in Floresville which is 15 miles south of La Vernia. Also a Wal-Mart as you go in to SA in US87 which takes about 20 mins from all parts of La Vernia. Its not as out there as you would expect. (not to mention it takes a 20 mins to get to seguin which has a Wal-Mart, Bells, J.C Penny and HEB)

Thanks for the replies. How far is LaVernia from SA University? We've looked into LaVernia realstate and it seems to be reasonable. Do any of you have pictures of LaVernia. Is it flat? green? Mountains? We looked at the website for Boerne at it looks amazing. However, Helotes, Boerne, and Bulverde are part ot the "Hill Country" or something like that right. I don't know why LaVernia makes me think it's a little on the flat side....is it?
Thanks

I try to take pictures of all the places I visit during my many trips around the area. I don't have any of LaVernia (though that is on the list), but you are welcome to look at the ones I have posted. Find them here.

Keep in mind here in south Texas its brown in the winter (the time it seems like these were taken) and also in August and September in hot dry summers. La Vernia is a little greener with more trees. (special where all the subdivisions are just south of the city. Like this.
