There are so many things to see and do in New Braunfels and the surrounding area. From your front door, you are at the entrance of Schlitterbahn waterpark or at the entrance of the Tube Chute of the Comal River after a short 4 block walk. The walk downtown is about .5 miles. While downtown be sure to visit Henne Hardware, the oldest hardware store in Texas and Naegelin's Bakery, the oldest bakery in Texas. There are also a number of unique shops, the historical Sophienburg and children's museums, taverns, and restaurants downtown. Take the children to Landa Park to ride the miniature train through the park, for a picnic, to hike through Panther Canyon, to visit the Founder's Oak that dates back to the 1700s, to swim in the springfed swimming pool, and to hear a summer evening concert at the dance slab. Visit Gruene Hall, the oldest dancehall in Texas, to listen to live music and see where legends like George Strait, Lyle Lovett, and Willie Nelson got started. While in Gruene, visit the General Store and other unique shops, music venues, and restaurants. Take the scenic drive up River Road to Canyon Lake for horseback riding, hiking, and water sports. Plan to spend a day at the San Marcos outlet stores. Natural Bridge Caverns is a short drive away for a day of spelunking. San Antonio is a short drive away to visit the Alamo, River Walk, and Seaworld. Austin is another short drive away to visit the Capitol building, 6th Street and the surrounding area to learn why it is known as the 'Live Music Capitol of the World.' New Braunfels sponsors 'Wurstfest' each year along with many other festivals. You are in the ideal location to enjoy local activities as well as those in the nearby hill country area.
Year Purchased: 2016
Why New Braunfels, TX, USA:
We chose this property because of the two rivers - the Comal and Guadalupe, Landa Park with the streams running through it, delightful restaurants, the I 35 corridor, Texas Hill Country, Wurstfest, Brauntex Theater, Luckenback, Fredericksburg, Austin music scene, San Marcos, San Antonio Alamo and River Walk, Kerrville Folk Festival, and Schlitterbahn. There is so much to do in New Braunfels.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the Victorian style of the home along with the high ceilings, leaded glass windows, and transom windows. It is an easy walk to Schlitterbahn. The home is in a quiet residential block with great neighbors. We especially like the Texas hospitality.
