Our favorite spots outside of Helotes/Grey Forest:

Wanting to venture a little further? Here's a list of our favorite spots to check out.
One of our favorite day trips is to Love Creek Orchards and The Apple Store. Stop by the orchard to pick seasonal fruit and then head over to the Apple Store for lunch/shopping. Drive just a little further and swim in the Medina River.

Bar 1919 is hidden underground and is only found by a light or two shining outside. Great boozy craft cocktails in a cozy environment. There are art galleries and restaurants all around the bar as well.
