Um, yeah. Well that about sums it up! La Vernia is actually a very great place to raise kids (friendly people, little to no crime, good schools with small teacher-student ratios, and lots of land and livestock.) However, it offers little in the way of conveniences and entertainment. (We have relatives in both La Vernia and Floresville.) The closest grocery store (HEB) is in Floresville, which is 15-25 mins. from La Vernia. There are a few convenience stores, gas stations, and churches and some other small businesses, but that's about it. The closest thing to entertainment is cow tipping on a Friday night and watching the alfalfa grow. Floresville and Seguin have much more to offer. It all depends on what's important to you and your family. Good luck in whatever you decide!

La Vernia also has their own family run grocery center. There about 20 restaurants in and around La Vernia ranging from Mexican to pizza to a donut shop.

Default La Vernia Texas

Small Town with big Heart but San Antonio is starting to notice us. We do have a few subdivisions that are located out of the the city limits. Most people do not live within the census counted city limited. We currently live in a community about 2 miles from town and LOVE it. We just have an HEB (grocery store) and other than that there is a Dollar General, Family Dollar, lots of Mexican Resturants and a large amount of churchs. The schools are still small enough that your child is know by name and if they get in trouble, you will more than likely know before they get home. The subdivision vary on the size of the lots from 1/2 arce to 5 acres, if you want to live alittle farther out more arceage is availble. Its a high school sports town and other than that not tons of thing for kids to do. Lots of custom homes. There is a La Vernia Website for the school and for the town. It a very quiet and friendly place to live.

Default correct my statement

[quote=nenushka;9703765]. SORRY. I can't figure out how to edit my post. It should say I would NOT raise my children any where else.

Any new info on La Vernia? We're thinking of building in that area and it appears there is growth with several subdivisions going up. We like the amount of land you can get and can see there aren't a ton of amenities yet, but it seems San Antonio will be inching that way. Any advice appreciated. Schools not a factor. Will be working at Port San Antonio and Fort Sam. Thanks.

They are going to expand the HEB which is already larger than some of the San Antonio counter parts in the chain. They just added Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Wingstop, Whataburger, and will be adding Wal-Mart and a few hundred garden homes. They are going to open a few more sub divisions on the eastern and southern parts of the school district. We live in the Alamo Heights area and it only takes ten more minuets to get to LV from Westover Hills due to the favorable traffic out there. ( a little further than Port SA)
