If you have small children and you want to tube the Comal River, then this is the place to go. The river float is about 2 hours and there is a tube shoot (my two got out and did this over and over again). The Guadalupe was low, due to the lack of rain, so our only option with two small kids, was the Comal. If you're thrifty/frugal, you can buy tubes at Wal-Mart or anywhere in town and save some $. If not, you can rent tubes for around $7 for the day. We enjoyed our day and still had time to go into Gruene for some good food, shopping and music.

Prince Solms park is a city park through which the Comal river runs. You pay a small admission fee and rent a tube (you can bring your own if you have them). There is a low water dam and the bulk of the water runs through a man-made "chute" (about 6 feet wide) on one side of the dam. The drill is as follows: you throw your tube into the river above the dam, jump onto it, flow through the chute (fairly rapid). The chute comes out at an angle so that you are pushed across the river. You get out, walk back over the dam and do it again. You can go without a tube at all or holding on to someone else's. It's a bit tiring climbing out of the river and carrying your tube back over the dam over and over, but well worth it. You can spend a couple of hours here and have a blast for very little cash.
