Boerne, Texas Weekend Getaway

Updated: Feb 15, 2023

Our itinerary

Day 1:

Once we finally arrived Thursday evening, we quickly checked into our hotel, Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort, and rushed to get ready to make our reservation. Luckily Boerne is a pretty low-key town, so we totally didn't need to rush but after quickly changing, we hoped back in the car to go to the Creek Restaurant. This was one of the cutest restaurants ever, with real antique decor and vibes that gave that very southern charm feel. The location was also perfect too, right on the creek with string lights along the patio + pond out front. Definitely a great spot for a romantic date night or special occasion!

To start, I had a glass of Prosecco while Alec enjoyed their house red. Then as an appetizer, we got the escargot to share as a table which came highly recommended as well as their complimentary soup of the day + bread. For our meal, Alec ordered the Tortellini di Carne and I had the Balsamic Chicken. Both were very tasty and hit the spot after our road trip. Of course for dessert, we got the birthday girl the creme brûlée as well as the chocolate mouse cake (which was on the house). Once we paid our tab, we headed back to the hotel to change back into comfies before playing a round of Catan and then calling it a night.

Day 2:

Friday morning we slept in a little bit before getting ready for our tee-time at 11am at the course on the resort. Of course Holly and I were just riding along but the boys were more than excited to get to play a round during our weekend getaway. Beforehand, we did swing by La Tienda, located inside the lobby of the hotel, to grab some breakfast tacos to go. Unfortunately the weather was a little chillier + windier than we had hoped for but we all made the best of it. Luckily the course was pretty empty too so the boys got to play at their own pace with not many people around. Once we got to the halfway mark, we were right by the hotel lobby + restaurant, La Cascada, so we decided to stop in for a quick bite to eat. Every got a hot dog + chips and a drink to fuel us for the second half.

After the boys wrapped up their game and Holly and I got to goof around on the course, we headed back to our hotel rooms to freshen up before hitting the downtown area for some window shopping. Downtown Boerne is super cute filled with unique restaurants, shops, and bars everywhere you look. Fortunately our hotel was only about a 10 minute drive to this area which made everything super easy to get to + convenient for sure. Once we explored all of the different shops, we decided to stop in Richter Tavern for a little Happy Hour cocktail. I got an espresso martini and Alec got an old fashioned. While sipping on our drinks we just enjoyed chatting about everything and nothing in their modern + aesthetic bar area before heading back to our hotel for our dinner reservations at La Cascada.

When we got back to our hotel we were pretty hungry so we tried to see if they could seat us earlier than our 7pm reservation. Unfortunately it was a popping night so we went to the bar to grab a drink and watch sunset on their patio before our table was ready. It was still a little chilly outside but the patio had tons of heaters + tvs, so everyone was happy! Once we sat down, we immediately ordered the charcuterie board to share while enjoying our drinks. Then for dinner, Alec got the chicken fried steak while I enjoyed the smokehouse Mac & cheese. Everything was delicious and honestly the perfect amount of food. After dinner, we decided to head back up to our hotel rooms to play another game before going to bed.

Day 3: Saturday morning got up and got ready to head back downtown for visit the Farmers Market. Of course beforehand, we had to stop into the Black Rifle Coffee Company shop to grab a Joe to go! This is one of Alec and I'd favorite coffee company brands so we were excited to get to try it fresh and in person. Once we all had our drinks, we walked around the street to explore the Market. They had tons of unique vendors with a variety of food and clothing options. After doing a little shopping, we walked over to our lunch reservation at Peggy’s on the Green. Another super cute, southern style restaurant with all the charm and antique decor. To eat, Alec got the southern Cuban sandwich while I enjoyed the classic chicken pot pie. Both were incredible and totally hit the spot! Definitely a great spot for Sunday brunch or when you are needing some good, country home cooked meals.

After we finished eating lunch, we drove out to Comfort to visit the Singing Water Vineyard. It was about a 30 minute drive outside of town in the beautiful hill country. Once we arrived we were immediately sat inside so we could do a tasting. When we showed up around 12:30pm it wasn't super crowded yet but by 1-1:30pm it was much busier because they have live music starting at 2pm. So if you plan to show up late afternoon we highly recommend having a reservation. Since it was the weekend before Valentine's Day, they were offering a wine tasting with 4 wines + chocolate pairings for $40 or a regular tasting for $25. Alec ended up doing the chocolate tasting (no shock there) and I stuck to the regular. After all was said and done, his favorite was the Lightning and mine was the Texas Reserve. Once we all finished our tastings, we ended up getting a bottle to share and went outside to the patio area to catch some rays too. It had finally really started to warm up + the wind had died down which made it much more comfortable outdoors. After soaking up some sun while sipping on our glasses and enjoying the live music, we decided to head back to our hotel to grab a bite to eat. We actually ended up changing back into comfies, getting Catan, ordering pizzas to go from La Cascada, and hanging in a room in the lobby area. We had the best time just hanging out and enjoying each other's company while also eating some delicious pizza!

Day 4: Sunday morning we packed up our things then loaded the car up pretty early since we had a long drive back + it was Super Bowl Sunday. Once we had all of our things, we hopped in the car and headed to Richter Bakhaus for their infamous cinnamon rolls. Unforntaly when we got there they had just opened so none of the delicious breakfast pastries were ready yet so I grabbed a bagel and the rest of the crew got breakfast from McDonalds on our way out of town.

All in all a great birthday trip to the Texas hill country celebrating one of our dearest friend's 27th bday!
