We have visited Boerne many times in the past but just learned about this exciting location. It was incredible. We had a great guide and a small group and we walked the entire cave. It has been cared for lovingly and the employees really seem to like their jobs. We understand that they also have concerts inside the cave but we were not able to attend one of the performances. This was a fun adventure and a great day trip.

Enjoy spectacular scenery along River Road, a drive not for the faint of heart.

Nice stream (I suspect it's really a "pond" during the summer) that is a highlight of a visit to Boerne. Folks from all walks of life are drawn here to absorb the peacefulness of the place. There's easy parking along the road adjoining the park with numerous places to sit and take it all in. The ducks are pretty flabby from all the food people toss to them...and there's an almost bizarre number of turtles in the stream (what's the deal with that?) The Dodging Duck restaurant is right across the street...a great place for a quick sandwich and drink. You can take the pathway from the park into the Main Street shop areas of the town...a nice stroll. Give it some time, strike up a conversation or two and absorb the charms of Boerne.

Cibolo Nature Center

Reviewed By lucsimsthomas - San Antonio, Texas

Visiting this place was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The trails are nice and offered a great place to walk and commune with nature. The center offers various classes and seminars throughout the year and has an area for this separate from the small main area. It was quiet when we visited and there were only a few people on the trails but overall it is a great place to visit. The rocking chairs on the porch were very comfortable.

Such a wonderful excursion. Didn’t realize this wonderful place is so close to our home in SA. Exciting tour by Pamela who showed and talked about all the special features. She was great with explaining things to our 2 young daughters who both really enjoyed the whole tour. Liked the gift shop. Our girls are showing all their friends the rocks they purchased. We will be back.
Thanks for a good afternoon.

The Dienger Trading Co.

Historic building, constructed in 1884, currently houses the Boerne Public Library.

Reviewed By 860SusanB860 - Rockwall, Texas

I loved browsing around in the historic building and reading about the past uses. After doing a little shopping, we took a break and ordered coffee, lemonade and pie for an afternoon snack. You place an order at the counter, take a seat and the food and drinks are brought to your table. Service was nice and we got our food in a short amount of time. The pie was delicious! It was very nice sitting and looking out the window onto the street and watching all the shoppers. It was quite a pleasant experience.

Fickle Pickles Antiques and Pickles

Reviewed By Dan F - Gause, TX

We were just browsing along the street in Boerne and stopped in here thinking we would find some antique items, but it was mostly reproductions with some antiques scattered in between. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but we had a hard time finding anything worth actually purchasing. I would not label this a tourist trap, but it was close. Items were greatly over priced as well.

The also sell Fickle Pickles. We did not buy any, but did eat a couple of samples and they seemed to be very good! So, if you want pickles, give them at try! I just recommend you steer clear of their other items.

Love stopping here on various visits to Hill Country. The architecture of the building is interesting, several outdoor sculptures to see. There are a few benches and tables for a picnic or just a relaxing break from a hectic car trip. In the spring the Bluebonnets in front are gorgeous.

Bring some snacks to feed to the ducks. This spot is a great place to stop and just people watch. Fun to see the birds swimming to different groups of people that feed them.
