5+ Ways to Find Your Boerne Adventure This Summer


There is something about looking forward to a summertime excursion that brings out the best in all of us! Spending warm, breezy days in the shade with the sun-drenched smiling faces of friends and family while splashing in cool Texas Hill Country waterways, learning something new above or below ground, or simply spending time together never gets old. The idea that you’ll have a limited amount of time to experience all that there is to see and do in beautiful Boerne before school starts up again makes that time even sweeter! We have you covered. Read on for authentic experiences and excellent summer memory-making opportunities! 

Women and Children Paddeling with Hill Country PaddlesportsA Day at the Lake

Rev up the younger crowd with an exciting day out on the water at Boerne City Lake Park while renting an assortment of watercraft from Hill Country Paddle Sports. Featuring a variety of watercraft for rent or purchase, in addition to stand-up paddleboards for that authentic on-the-water experience, Hill Country Paddle Sports has everything you need for every age range and interest. Looking for a romantic evening outing? Plan a sunset cruise out on the water with Trisum Sailing. Captain Chapa offers private as well as group sailing lessons in addition to chartered trips out on beautiful Boerne City Lake. Learning a new aquatic activity or touring through a part of Texas on a sailboat is a one-of-a-kind experience you won’t soon forget!

Mom and Child at Cave Without A NameExplore Underground

If a subterranean experience is what you’re looking for, visit the Cave Without A Name, Boerne’s natural national landmark. Regular special events are held in the amazing venue called the Queen’s Throne Room, deep in the heart of this living cavern, which also hosts six stalactite and stalagmite-filled spaces to tour! Family and friends can enjoy so many amazing formations, gem panning, a rock shop, geode slicing, as well as a nature trail, and a picnic pavilion. In addition, Cascade Caverns is a historic "Living Cave" offering adventure tours through five major rooms. It also includes its own spectacular Cathedral Room inside this most historic tourist attraction. This site features nature trails, picnic tables, a pavilion, and an on-site gift shop!


Speaking of family favorites, a relaxing day splashing and floating down the river in a tube courtesy of Bergheim Campgrounds & River Outfitter or Joshua Creek Ranch is a fabulous way to keep cool. Resort day passes are available for a day of play at Joshua Creek Ranch. Located along a gorgeously isolated area of the Guadalupe River and its namesake creek, they are open for kayaking and tubing this summer, among many other great activities! This premier hunting lodge and Hill Country resort features sporting clays, fly fishing, shooting instruction, and a shooting range in addition to its world-class natural water recreation opportunities. It’s the perfect place for all your summer outdoor sporting experiences, surrounded by luxury resort amenities. 

Glider flying over treesTake to the Sky While Gliding

We would be remiss if we didn’t also tell you about the phenomenal opportunity for glider event viewing and participation at the Boerne Stage Airfield! The Boerne Stage Airfield is an active taxiway but also boasts a glider hangar. The San Antonio Soaring Society holds gliding events here, including but not limited to soaring nights and glider days, not to mention the Bexar County Senior Squadron hosts CAP Cadet Glider Orientation Flights every month. These are rare opportunities to showcase some of Boerne’s even more “elevated” experiences!

Woman Horseback RidingHike the Hills on Two Legs or Four

And a visit to Boerne for some local summer fun would not be complete without a hike through the pristine scenery at Guadalupe River State Park and the Cibolo Center for Conservation, or some horseback riding at Diamond C Stables. Whatever your summer fun fancy is, Boerne, located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, has what you’re looking for. From water sports to cave exploring, and from family fun to couples’ vacation retreats, you can always find what you’re looking for right here in beautiful Boerne!
