Day Trips from Boerne, Texas

August 28, 2020

The great state of Texas is known for its expansive landscapes and wide horizons. Many people are surprised to find just how interconnected the greater San Antonio area is. Open space is one of the finest features of living in Boerne, TX, but from your custom home in Boerne, you’ll be in the range of an exciting variety of ways to spend an afternoon or an entire weekend. Here are some of the best day trips from Boerne, TX.

San Antonio Riverwalk

Drive time from Boerne: 40 minutes

The iconic San Antonio Riverwalk is the centerpiece of downtown San Antonio. The Riverwalk is a pedestrian street winding through downtown San Antonio, one story below the main roads. The 15-mile path is lined with restaurants, bars, and shops. It’s a very scenic way to take in a lot of San Antonio history, and the trees offer some priceless shade this time of year. The Riverwalk may become one of your favorite destinations from your custom home in Boerne because there’s so much to explore. You can plan an itinerary for any sort of trip, whether it’s an evening of bar-hopping, a guided historical tour, or a day of shopping and fun with the kids.

New Braunfels

Drive time from Boerne: just under an hour

A budding cultural hub in Texas Hill Country, New Braunfels is a hip alternative to San Antonio for great food and nightlife. The German roots in the history of New Braunfels still show today, in the restaurants and festivals. New Braunfels is known for its local breweries and wineries, where you can spend a sunny afternoon sampling artisan beverages. New Braunfels is also a great destination for natural attractions, between the river tubing or the cave spelunking.


Drive time from Boerne: 35 minutes

This idyllic Hill Country small town is perfect for a getaway. It has a history rich with artistry, and its landscapes have long been photographed and painted. Kerrville stands out among the many cute towns in the area because of its fantastic parks. The Guadalupe River runs through the town and is the source of the area’s beauty and greenery. The newly established River Trail is a 5-mile path for walking and biking that connects several of the town’s parks. Visit Kerrville when you want a quiet escape for a day.


Drive time from Boerne: 1 hour and 30 minutes

For a bigger day trip or a weekend getaway, make the journey up to Austin, TX. The “Live Music Capital of the World” sits just north of Texas Hill Country. Austin is revered for its food, culture, and nightlife. It’s a little further away than many of the day trips you can make from your home in Boerne, but it’s well worth the trek for a special occasion. An endless list of things to do in Austin awaits you, and when you’re feeling adventurous you make the drive from Boerne.

By nature, Texas Hill Country is dotted with lovely small towns to visit year-round while living in Boerne. But big-city attractions also await you. It all starts with your new custom home.
