If you’ve visited Boerne’s Hill Country Mile in the last year, you have likely seen at least a few of the amazing sculptures scattered throughout the downtown area and along the Trail System. You may not know that some of these beauties won’t be here forever; they are part of a plan created by the City of Boerne to attract visitors and to increase the City’s permanent public art collection. “Art al Fresco” provides us the up close and personal opportunity to experience great art right here in Boerne.
We’ve made the research easy! Here is the lowdown on the City, County & State parks that have water in them in the Boerne area. Whether you like to swim, paddle, fish, sail, tube or sit back and enjoy the view, we have your covered. Now you just have to decide…lake, creek or river!
Spring is here (maybe unofficially, but my thermometer says otherwise) which brings with it the other most wonderful time of the year—FESTIVAL SEASON!

Valentine’s Day is on TUESDAY this year! Celebrate on the Saturday before or after with a romantic concert in the cave at the Cave Without a Name this year! The musical quality selections will thrill as always. This Saturday’s event features an impressive dinner prior to the musical performance down in the Queen’s Throne Room.
It was another tough day at the office yesterday. Peggy’s on the Green called again for a pie tasting (DARN!) and there was an extra surprise this time, it was also cocktail time! They sent us home on a sugar high and with an extra special gift, the recipes to make Razzleberry Pie & Chocolate Pearl Cocktails to celebrate Valentine’s Day. ENJOY!
Spring Break is almost here and the younger half of your crew is probably already bugging you to go to crowded places like Fiesta Texas & Sea World. Believe me, I get it. The idea of wading through the parking lots and crowds, day after day, is enough to give me a nervous twitch just thinking about it!
