Lots to do for Winter Texans!

New Braunfels is a wonderful place to be! If you can’t join the fun full time, come hang with us for the winter. There’s a lot of charm in this historical town and so much to do! Come enjoy one of our many festivals, farmer’s markets, golf courses, great music, good food and even better people. And for when your tastes require something outside of town, it is a bonus that New Braunfels is conveniently located between Austin, San Antonio and the rest of the beautiful Hill Country.

Don’t just take our word for it though. Come experience it yourself!

We’ve been welcoming our Winter Texan Family year after year with our home away from home accommodations, and we’d love to have you join the River City Family New Braunfels’ style!
