So how did it get this status, which only seven other cities in the entire country got? With its booming population and growth. The population of Helotes grew from just 3,080 in 2000 to 13,919 households in 2008 - a nearly 400% leap! Who knew so many people were racing for this suburb, which counts itself as the "Gateway to the Hill Country."
