Upgrade Your Road Trip!

Food-Peggys-Upgraded-Road-Trip

There’s no denying that the Texas Hill Country is an ideal year-round destination for Texans seeking to hit the road for an adventure. In Boerne, the lodging, dining, and shopping are all a step up from your average vacation, so you’re guaranteed to make extra special memories during your next trip. Below are a small handful of suggestions for how to step up your vacation game. Check out our website for a full listing of memorable experiences in Boerne!

You’ll love the unique charm of Boerne’s modern shops nestled in beautifully restored historic buildings lining the downtown area, aka the Hill Country Mile. The Mile features on-trend boutique clothing stores, exclusive home décor, fine jewelry, and art galleries filled with treasures by celebrated local and national artists. Some Priority Stops: Bechants, JAC’s Personal Touch, The Dienger Trading Co., Bechants Men’s, Laurie Saunders Ltd. and Calamity Jane’s Trading Co.

Play:

If your ideal road trip involves the call of the wild, bring your hiking boots and maybe a swimsuit for a day of play in parks like Guadalupe River State Park, Cibolo Nature Center and Boerne City Lake. Another option is that history buffs can spend their time strolling through town consulting the free historic walking tour and leave their vacation feeling they have learned something new. A tasty entertainment option would be to take a tasting tour: food, beer or wine! Lastly, the Boerne Art Al Fresco public art installation will excite art aficionados and novices alike. 

Dine:

Indulge in an exceptional dining experience for every meal. Boerne offers something for everyone, from famous cheeseburgers and bakery favorites to modern Hill Country fare and upscale fine dining from world-renowned chefs. Many establishments downtown also offer live music, locally brewed craft beer, carefully curated wine selections, and Hill Country-inspired cocktails. There truly is something for every palette. Some priority fine dining stops: Peggy’s on the Green, The Creek Restaurant, Cypress Grille, and Valeria Ristorante Italiano.

Rest:

At the end of a long day of play or road tripping, nothing beats a perfectly fluffed pillow in your home away from home while in Boerne. Discover an adorably cozy B&B, a newly renovated historic inn nestled on the Cibolo Creek, or a chic, modern boutique hotel perfectly situated in the heart of the Hill Country Mile. You’re sure to be revitalized and ready for your next day of fun after a restful night. Some Priority Stops: The William, Ye Kendall Inn, The Coop, The Barn at La Cascada, The Weyrich House on Main, and Depot Cottage.
