We are considering the hill country area and so we are wondering what it is like in Boerne and what activities there are to do. We are an active family with 5 children so we like to be outdoors doing stuff.

Thanks

My sis moved to Boerne so her 4 kids could spend more time outdoors. As far as I can tell, they play lots of soccer, are involved in the local acting company, and swim a lot down at the reservoir. It is a quiet town, but is growing. Can't really tell you many other specifics, other than she managed to raise four great kids.

The Boerne school district is experiencing growing pains. They've built a new high school which will open in the fall to accommodate the growth. Initially, they're moving all of the district's high school students to the new school, but will be remodeling the old high school for two years, reopening it and moving half of the students across town to give the district two high schools after the remodel. If you have kids who will be in high school there in the next 5 years, these changes are something to be aware of.

I agree. AFAIK, most employed residents of Boerne work in SA and consider themselves an integral part of the metro area.

We just moved into Boerne; This is by far, the best place to live (IMHO) on I-10. Its soo close to urban sprawl, while still far enough away to maintain that small town apeal.

You won't be disapointed.

We are going to visit in a few weeks.

Have you lived through a summer there? Where did you move from?

If we do go into a recession this year and gas prices continue to rise...living in outlying communities that require a long commute will really hurt. There are lots of nice areas in the city that don't require a long drive (and big gas bill) that are nice to live. If you don't work in Boerne - I don't understand driving that far just to live in a "small" town that will eventually be like any other subdivision...

Default Safe cycling and fishing in Boerne?

We are thinking of relocating to Boerne, but would like to know if there are any safe areas/neighborhoods to ride our bikes and if there are places to fish with public access. We now live in San Angelo and need a little more humidity and closer proximity to medical specialists in San Antonio. We are not big organized, road cyclists, just easy going neighborhood and some off road stuff.
