Class Act

All too often, Boerne is overlooked for community events, activities, and classes. So many people think that because of it’s proximity to San Antonio it doesn’t have anything to offer. That sentiment couldn’t be further from the truth. Boerne offers everything from cooking classes to rec sports leagues and everything in between. Check out these fun activities you can participate in.
