New Braunfels is a beautiful city with boutique shops, antique shops and this really great bakery just off the roundabout. The art work in the gallery is pleasing and relatively affordable. The children museum, train museum and firefighters museums and Buy and paint ceramic shop add to the interest of this town. The architecture of the courthouse, square is photo... More

It's bustling on I-35. You can find serious traffic, serious shopping, and fast or leisurely eats. Find the town square, and you've stumbled into all that defines a friendly, little Texas town.

NewBraunfels has long been a locale for tourism. With Schlitterbahn, Gruene Hall, the rivers, and all the other music and food places in our little town, there are few town to compare!

We visited here by parking and walking the streets around this park including the old Court House and the coffee shops as well as several shops. This is great leisure walk in a real Texas town.

A gem about 25 miles north of San Antonio, is definitely worth your visit if you are in the area. It has not only the best water park in the US but lots of other fun stuff to do for families....

For those of you that remember the Andy Griffith show; welcome to downtown New Braunfels. There is a pretty gazebo in the park. Surrounding the park are quaint coffee cafes and delicious bakeries. Growing out from downtown is a vibrant city that has something for all ages. Last but not least...TUBING! Come see what that is and you'll love it.
