Fun and relaxation are at the heart of this delightful community. New Braunfels is home to Schlitterbahn Waterpark, nationally recognized as the best waterpark in the United States with over 65 acres of fun for the whole family. Residents can also tube or kayak along one of the cold-water rivers that run through the city, the Comal and the Guadalupe. Or enjoy an evening of Texas-style fun in Gruene, a hamlet located on the northern edge of New Braunfels. Kick up your heels to live Texas music at the famous Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas, after exploring the many quaint shops.
