From The Publisher

Dearest EXPLORE reader, Sometimes I think about moving away from Boerne. I really do. Not because I don’t like it here, or that I can see the writing on the wall with words such as “growth” or “affordable housing”, but only because…don’t we all dream of a change of scenery? I know I do. Sometimes…

A Little Bit of Everything

When we first listen to a band, our brain reflexively logs them under the most fitting genre masthead, waiting for the next time your itch for “noise-core goth rock” needs to be scratched.

I’ve never met anybody…

For decades now, I and every other nursery professional have proclaimed that fall is the best time to plant trees. It seems like every month I repeat myself, “We don’t have winters, we have summers!” when comparing central Texas to the majority of the country. Now is the time to undertake serious, labor intensive landscape…

A World of Entertainment

What started as an overnight YouTube sensation is now a world-renowned theatrical phenomenon!  The VOCA PEOPLE have landed (and performed) in every major city throughout the world.  Their credits include New York City’s 2012 Lortel award for best “Theatrical Experience,” a prize first claimed by the Blue Man Group. Recently finishing their 3-week engagement at…

Old Timer

Are you a “New Timer” or an “Old Timer”? This question comes up all the time – How long must you live in the Boerne area before you’re considered to have lived here long enough to have an opinion? We at EXPLORE readily admit that if you pop up with an opinion about a city…
