Now known as the Peanut Capital of Texas, this dynamic town has expanded rapidly in recent years.

Welcome to Floresville

A vibrant and thriving community outside of San Antonio.


Originally named Lodi, Floresville was founded in 1867 and renamed for Don Francisco Flores de Abrego, an early settler from the Canary Islands. Now known as the Peanut Capital of Texas, this dynamic town has expanded rapidly in recent years. Benefiting from its proximity to San Antonio and oil-rich Eagle Ford Shale, just to the south of Floresville, this thriving town boasts a healthy business climate and growing population.


Diverse and cultural, Floresville celebrates its heritage with festivals and a commitment to maintaining its historic downtown area. Residents are proud to reflect on the town’s peaceful beginnings, when Spanish vaqueros and priests lived, worked, and worshiped alongside the original Native American inhabitants.


From modest ranch homes and classic Texas-style new construction builds to sprawling empty lots ready for your custom-built dream house, Floresville offers the canvas on which to create your life’s masterpiece.

Many locals are busy business people who love the tranquility of the picturesque Floresville neighborhoods. With an emphasis on community and family life, Floresville offers plenty of opportunities to connect and recharge. From the quaint practice of picking pecans in the park, a beloved autumnal pastime, to celebrating the new peanut queen, Floresville offers residents not just a slice of the good life but the whole (pecan) pie.


Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Is it possible to dine in Texas without indulging in classic barbeque? Luckily, you don’t need to find out because Floresville is the home of local favorite 2 Sawers Barbeque. Stop in for brisket and corn spoonbread, or enlist the skilled team to cater your next backyard bash. Just make sure to get in early because this delicious eatery sells out fast.


You’ll find some of the best Mexican food at Jalisco Taqueria Mexican Restaurant, specializing in authentic flavors and friendly service. The historic Fluff's White House Cafe is a lively spot for music and the best brisket burger you’ve ever had. The fries are garlicky, the burgers are juicy, and the friendly staff loves to entertain guests with ghost stories.


Take the guesswork out of shopping with a visit to Sisters Boutique and Gifts. This resident favorite has a curated selection of home decor items, baby clothes, and the cutest apparel in town. Find the perfect hostess gift or a stunning date night outfit at this chic little shop.


Things to Do

The annual Floresville Peanut Festival reflects the tradition of agriculture in this historic town and is celebrated with various fun festivities. The party kicks off with Goober Games for the kids and is followed by the festival's highlight, the Coronation of Queen Tunaep and her royal court. The next few days bring a parade and carnival, making this a coveted family affair.


This pretty, leafy town is proud of its tranquil outdoor spaces and celebrates its pastoral beauty with many parks. Lions Kiddie Park is made just for the little ones, with family picnic areas and a large playground complete with swingsets. Skate Park offers five acres of concrete skating surfaces, while Pecan Park provides fun for every age, with nine acres of play areas, walking and biking trails, and shady picnic spots. Summer finds most residents at the town pool, which offers swimming lessons, a diving board, and shaded spots for lounging the day away.



Floresville is home to the highly-rated Floresville Independent School District, which has been recognized by Texas for its educational excellence and commitment to the well-being of its students.
