This Tiny Texas Town Is One Of The Happiest Places In America
Making any list that encompasses the entire country when you’re a small town is an amazing enough accomplishment, but when that list is about the happiest towns in America, the sense of pride increases tenfold.
House Beautiful rated Boerne, Texas the 25th most happy small town in the nation. Here’s why:
With a population of about 10,000 per the 2010 census, Boerne is a perfect balance between a city and a tiny blip on the map.
It's less than 15 miles from San Antonio, so you can enjoy the city whenever you'd like without enduring the hustle and bustle on a daily basis.
Boerne is home to the "Hill Country Mile," a stretch of locally-owned shops and restaurants on Main Street. You'll find everything from boutique clothing and antiques to cherished family recipes.
There are also two stunning caverns, Cave Without a Name and Cascade Caverns. They're a must-visit while you're here!
You can immerse yourself in nature at Cibolo Nature Center, which has four distinct ecosystems and is popular for birding, hiking, and exploring.
River Road Park also has plenty of hiking and biking trails, and the Guadalupe River State Park is only 15 minutes away!
Boerne is the epitome of small-town Texas charm. From the friendly locals to the quaint town square, you'll feel right at home as soon as you arrive.
Texas is just full of
happy towns, isn’t it?
