The Kronkosky Tower and grounds are home to the Benedictine Sisters' monastery and their ministries. Programs for senior citizens are offered there. The tower was built in 1911 on a hill overlooking Boerne. I am not sure whether the tower is ever open to the public now. If it were, it would have the best view of anywhere in the area.
Boerne -- In the Heart of Texas Hill Country
"Location, Location, Location"
Boerne is a great place to base a visit to the Hill Country. It's about 20 minutes northwest of San Antonio, and about 90 minutes from Austin.
The town itself has more retaurants, shops, and character than some other Hill Country towns, like Comfort and New Braunfels. It's less touristy than Fredricksburg.
Convenient to state parks, hiking trails, caverns, and other natural attractions.
"Some Like to Shop"
We encountered a lot of people antiquing or shopping in the fashion and gift shops. In fact, some women staying at our B&B were in town to shop, eat, and chat.
