Only 20 minutes North of La Cantera’s Hill Country Resort is a town full of charm, antique shops and delicious dining. The city of Boerne, Texas is well known in the Hill Country for its walkability and it’s “Hill Country Mile” of boutique shops, antique stores and art galleries.
If you have the desire to visit this small town, there is one weekend every month to make it happen. Every second weekend of the month in Boerne is Market Days. Anywhere from 80 to 140 arts, crafts, jewelry and food vendors gather in the town’s main plaza on Saturday and Sunday offering shopping and live entertainment from local musicians. You’ll find unique Texas themed treasures and homemade crafts, as well as artwork, delicious food in a great small town setting.
And happening on those same Saturdays is Boerne’s Second Saturday Art and Wine experience. This event occurs at the local downtown art galleries, where artist meet and greet shoppers with complimentary wine and snacks. If you do happen to find a painting you love, or perhaps just find too much wine, you can skip the short walk between art galleries and hop on the “Shabby Bus”. The bus will take you from gallery to gallery so you can enjoy all that Second Saturday has to offer, without burning too much energy!
Boerne is a great way to get a glimpse at the Texas Hill Country while enjoying some great local shops, craftsmen and music. For more info about Market Days, click here. For more info about Second Saturday, click here!
