Just down IH 10 between Boerne and Comfort lies the little rustic community of Welfare, Texas. In a span of just under 2 miles, the Welfare area offers fun for the entire family at The Christmas Town (an immediate right off of exit 533 "Welfare exit" on IH 10), PoPo Family Restaurant (just down the access road from The Christmas Town), and Christmas on the Ranch at Don Strange Ranch (less than 2 miles from that Welfare exit) open November 29 - December 23, 2019 is an amazing drive through lighting display and indoor vendors and food - not to mention Santa Claus and so much more!

Welfare invites you to start the Christmas season off right and drive out to spend an evening with us. You'll leave with the true spirit of the holiday! Click on the buttons below to learn more about the area businesses. It all starts at exit 533.
