Helotes, TX is known as "The Gateway to Texas Hill Country" because the rugged natural landscape of the vast Texas Hill Country region begins here. Occupying less than seven square miles of Bexar County, this little town has a lot to offer. The town's 6,000 residents enjoy safe, tranquil neighborhoods and exceptional schools all without sacrificing the excitement, convenience and economy the city has to offer. Real estate options consist of ranch properties, private estates, bungalows and contemporary subdivisions.
Located a mere 16 miles northwest of downtown San Antonio, Helotes offers a "best of both worlds" lifestyle. That's not to say there isn't fun or expedience to be had right in town. Medical facilities, churches, libraries, shops, dining and entertainment are readily available in Helotes. The two public golf courses, parks and green spaces are popular recreation spots in town. Outdoor activities are enjoyed here as well; long scenic drives, bike riding along the trails, swimming and hiking, offer plenty of opportunities to explore the terrain.
Seasonal fairs and events are held each year, including Cornyval, a fun-filled festival held each year in May honoring the traditions of the town's original inhabitants, and an event honoring the Lipan Apache tribe who celebrated each spring when the corn was ripe (Helotes is Apache for “corn”). Helotes is a peaceful respite, a picturesque community and a stone's throw from the hustle of exciting San Antonio.
