What is the Texas Hill Country?
Cordillera Ranch is in the heart of the region known as the Texas Hill Country, a 14,000-square-mile area northwest of San Antonio and southwest of Austin. This region more resembles the rolling hills of the Napa Valley than it does the tumbleweed-strewn deserts of familiar western iconography. Unbeknownst to many outside the state, the unique character and beauty of the Hill Country are second to none. And as more and more visitors come to the area, word of its appeal is spreading. With all of the adventurous activities, the New York Times named the Texas Hill Country as the number one place to visit during the summer.
Why the Texas Hill Country is unique?
The region is home to many picturesque small towns like Boerne (pronounced Bur-nee), steeped in the history of their original German settlers. Boerne features a variety of locally owned restaurants, bed and breakfasts, antique shops and boutiques. The Hill Country, more so Kendall County, offers a great climate and an educated workforce. The Boerne Independent School District is home to the most highly acclaimed schools in the area.
Boerne is also an ideal distance from San Antonio and a pro-business atmosphere that is attractive to new businesses and economic growth. The positive impact of a rising educated workforce, enduring population growth, relatively low unemployment and the 8th highest per capita income in the state of Texas boasts well for the continued success of the area.
