Winter Fun in Boerne!

In Boerne, the fun doesn’t end when the temps cool down! After all, we do live in Texas where the cold isn’t too cold, and enjoying the outdoors can still be a blast. Of course, there’s plenty of indoor fun to be had for those who prefer to be warm and toasty. Here are the ways you can enjoy your vacation to Boerne this winter!

 

Visit the Hill Country Mile

Head to Boerne’s Hill Country Mile for incomparable shopping, unbeatable local dining, historic buildings, art galleries and more! Enjoy the slower pace and hospitality of a small Texas town with all the luxury of a high-end city.

 

Take A Cave Tour At Cave Without A Name Or Cascade Caverns

Maintaining a consistent 66 degrees year-round, taking a tour inside one of our caves actually feels warm during the winter months. Along with it being a warmer, fun-filled option, the caves in Boerne are full of magnificent structures like stalactites and stalagmites. You can learn all about how these are formed when you take a tour at either cave. If you’re up for it, try your hand at sluicing (a technique used when sifting through earthly matter to find geological treasures) at Cave Without A Name, or check out the gift shop at Cascade Caverns!

Go See A Show –

Live performances never get old! You can discover live music at events and restaurants around town performing almost every weekend. Keep tabs on the Boerne Facebook calendar for those events! Also, the 2019 Boerne Performing Arts Season will begin on February 22nd when the Trinity Irish Dance Company will take the stage at Boerne Champion High School’s auditorium. Experience everything you love about traditional Irish dance accompanied by traditional and contemporary tunes. The Boerne Community Theatre also has theatrical performances scheduled for December, January and February!

Winter Events –

Make plans to attend the events that will take place here in Boerne during the winter! December is full of holiday events. Find a full list of Yuletide fun on our Events Calendar! February is the month of the beloved Chocolate Walk. Those tickets will go on sale January 9, 2019 at midnight and will sell out in a matter of hours! Let’s not forget also that every second weekend of the month, Second Saturday Art Beat and Kuhlmann-King Museum tours take place on Saturday, and Boerne Market Days comes to Main Plaza both Saturday and Sunday!

Get Back To Nature –

Bundle up in your favorite outdoor gear to do some Boerne exploring! The Cibolo Nature Center has lots of walking trails to hike among 4 different ecosystems. Guadalupe River State Park is only a 15-minute drive from town and has walking trails along the river. Both parks offer year-round programming and fishing with the proper licensing as well!

Let Your Creative Juices Flow –

The Maker’s Place, Sanctuary for the Vintage Soul, the Cibolo Nature Center, Vintage on Main and Gina Marie’s Art Studio all offer public paint and sip events. The Maker’s Place takes walk-in painters during regular business hours. The Dienger Trading Co. hosts hand-lettering and watercolor classes too! You can check the Boerne Facebook calendar to see when all those artsy events are scheduled to happen.

Take A Tour –

Learn something new by taking a tour! Hill Country Food Tours offers an epicurean experience you’ll walk away feeling totally satisfied from. Check out Boerne Walking Tours to discover the history of Boerne’s buildings and families – some stories include hauntings! Tour The AgriCultural, formerly known as the Agricultural Heritage Museum, to see old-timey tractors, a live blacksmith shop, pioneer and wagon house and more. Wineries, breweries, and distilleries are in no short supply here either. Tour one of these local establishments to see how the tastes of the Hill Country are incorporated into your favorite spirits!

There are so many opportunities to get a true Boerne experience no matter what time of year we are in and no matter what your interests are!
