Welcome to Schertz/Cibolo

 

Schertz

 
Though located on the cusp of San Antonio’s humming metropolis, Schertz’s modest size and north-lying location give it the air of a small, tranquil suburb. With a population of just under 32,000 residents, this town embraces Hill Country values and a neighborhood-centric community mindset. Consider the city’s core values: Treat others the way you would want to be treated; Do the right thing; Be the best you can; Work cooperatively as a team.

Nestled in a quiet northeast corner of the San Antonio metro area, Schertz boasts a location that garners the benefits of both the big city and the peaceful Hill Country. With the sparkling Comal and Guadalupe Rivers to the east, Austin’s alluring metropolis to the north, and San Antonio’s cultural hub to the south, Schertz acts as a home base for many who want access to all of the above. Plus, the average commute is just 25 minutes (due to convenient placement on I-35 and I-10). Overall, this locale is an ideal neighborhood for anyone who wants to work or play in the city (without living in the thick of it).

Given that San Antonio is officially considered “Military City USA”, we’re often asked: “What are the best neighborhoods for military families moving to San Antonio?” As it so happens, one of our top answers is always, “Schertz, TX”. Boasting a short 20-minute commute to Randolph Air Force Base, as well as a diverse population of military families, Schertz is the natural choice for Air Force service men and women looking to find their San Antonio home.

Though young families are flocking to Schertz, retirees and veterans make up over 20% of Schertz’s population. The area has been ranked as the #5 best place for military retirees due to its proximity to VA hospitals and services. Additionally, a wide variety of home styles and availability mean that downsizing is a simple and easy possibility for anyone looking to simplify their lifestyle.

The town of Schertz, TX doesn’t just feel peaceful. It is peaceful. Boasting one of the lowest crime rates in the state (rated one of the top 30 safest cities in Texas by Safewise), the city’s commitment to economic prosperity and workforce opportunities has resulted in extremely low unemployment rates, high adult education levels, and an affluent demographic. According to one resident: “Schertz is an amazing place, clean and well managed. The parks are amazing and beautiful. I feel safe when I walk around at night.” You honestly can’t put a price tag on that kind of peace of mind.
 

Cibolo

 
Located about 30 minutes from downtown San Antonio, Cibolo is a booming neighborhood full of new restaurants and growing homes. For those not familiar with the area, Cibolo sits about halfway between the Alamo City and Seguin.

The suburb, which is located in Guadalupe County, feeds into the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal-City Independent School District and is anchored by Byron P. Steele High School. Friday night football is king in Cibolo, so make sure to hit the bleachers early and cheer the Knights on to victory.

As the San Antonio and Austin metro areas continue their unprecedented growth, so too does Cibolo. According to U.S. Census data, Cibolo’s population boomed from 3,177 in 2000 to more than 33,000 in 2021. Cibolo’s charming Main Street runs through its historic downtown and offers a mix of restaurants, alehouses, cafes, and boutiques.

Among diners’ favorites is Kindling, serving up “farm fresh regional Texas cuisine” in a century-old Cibolo house; Scoop at the Mill, dishing out small-batch homemade ice cream in seasonal flavors; and Old Main Ice House, a massive beer garden and live music venue.

Cibolo is home to multiple green spaces, parks, and trails, including primitive options. According to the City of Cibolo Parks and Recreation, the city maintains approximately 85 acres of parkland in the area. This includes the area's four major parks — Niemietz, Al Rich, Schlather, and Veterans’ Memorial. The Crescent Bend Nature Park, located minutes away in neighboring Schertz, is a former development turned 190-acre park situated south of Cibolo Creek. Since it opened in 2009, 250 different species of birds have been spotted in the park according to Friends of Crescent Bend Nature Park.
