Boerne, (pronounced BER-nee, ) is a small town about thirty miles north of San Antonio. It has German Heritage and is well known for antique shopping.
Boerne is a thriving community just 20 minutes from the best shopping in San Antonio. The small town charm and quaint atmosphere on Main Street is filled with folks hunting down their antique treasures, stopping in the many eateries dotting the Haupstraus and maybe stopping in for a sip of wine at the popular establishments.
Not only is Boerne known for the shopping and fabulous lunch spots, but the town is filled with new people moving to many nearby country neighborhoods built in the grandest style from elegant mediterranean villas to the charming limestone classics native to the Texas Hill Country.
