Day Tour of Boerne

I spent a day touring Boerne and some of the fun places it has to offer. It was a Saturday so we started at the Cibolo Farmer’s Market. I love a Farmer’s Market! We got some great jams, doggy treats and cup cakes, all from local vendors yummy, amazing and delicious, the dogs agree as well. The farmer’s market is every Saturday from 9am-1pm and is located at Herff Farm. After getting our treats from the market we walked over to the Herff Farm house. It is beautiful and full of history. I love reading all of the plaques that show the house and the history of the family, farm and town. If you haven’t gone to check out the house it is a must see.

Next stop was the Boerne Visitor’s Center, I have seen posts on Facebook and always wondered what it had to offer. The visitor’s center is located in front of Walmart and is adorable. There is a huge front porch and beautiful front yard area with picnic tables and historic buildings. Inside was the nicest gentleman who gave us a lot of literature and information about things to do in the town and surrounding areas. You can also purchase some cute Boerne stuff, we got a mug.

It was now time for lunch so we headed over to Boerne Grill on Main Street. The food never disappoints and you can learn and see more of the Boerne history inside. They offer a large coffee bar and great food menu. I had the chicken salad wrap and it was delicious. I need to go and check out the breakfast. My favorite thing is that you can sit in the window! 🙂

Now fueled up it was on to the Agricultural Heritage Museum, it is located off of Park Road. This was a first visit as well and I didn’t know what to expect. There is a sign in book and donation station at the entrance to the main building. Located inside were all kinds of historic machines that ground corn, churned butter, antique freezers, scales, cotton equipment and much more. The plaques were full of fun facts. The outdoor area is well maintained with tons of different farm equipment and you can see the progression and changes of technology. The outdoor plaques are difficult to read from the weather but it is a fun place to see.

As you leave the Museum you can drive right down the road to the Cibolo Nature Center, which is one of my favorite places. There is a gift shop in the main building that has some turtles and a tarantella….ew, but cool to see. There is an outdoor picnic area with restrooms, an outdoor stage and teaching center. With so many trails to choose from and educational classes and activities there is always something to do at the nature center.

I almost flipped on my head for this pic!
My new friend I met while shopping!

Let me know some other places I need to see and tour! I had a great day in Boerne.
