Best Small Town

Looking for that small town feel close to San Antonio?  You found it!  It has a special place in my heart because I grew up playing softball here and riding in the annual Helotes Parade. 

The town will draw a crowd for concerts at nationally historic John T Floores Country Store where you can hear legends like Willie Nelson or more recent musicians like Luke Combs. On Sundays go with the entire family to hear live music for free.  But we can’t forget about Market Place in Old Town Helotes and, of course, Cornyval time in April/May. Visit the Upcoming Events page for where and when details.

If you are thinking of moving here, or already do and thinking of a change, call me any time to brainstorm ideas, set you up on a search and/or list your house to find your next home.  Follow me on Facebook and join my Helotes Living Group to keep up-to-date on things happening here!
