Fall in Love with Live Music This February

February is right around the corner, so why not celebrate with live music? Bring your sweetie on a romantic vacation or just explore the sights and sounds of New Braunfels with friends and family. Hill Country Cottage and RV Resort is the perfect place to stay, so you can spend more on making memories.

Gruene Hall has an excellent live music lineup for February. Here are some of the highlights!

charlieCharlie Robison

Texas-native Charlie Robinson brings his country charm to the stage on February 5 at 8 p.m. His Texas/Americana sound was first heard on his debut album “Bandera.” He even recorded “Unleashed Live” right at Gruene Hall for Lucky Dog Label. Help Gruene Hall welcome him back!

Joe Ely Band

Need a great date night idea? Come out to see Joe Ely perform live on February 13 at 9 p.m. His Texas rock music crosses over genre lines to bring in a wide audience, and his shows are usually sold out. Rock out with his soulful songs, and raise your glass to live music!

Sweetheart’s Gospel Brunch

Bret Graham is leading this gospel brunch on February 14 at 10:30 a.m., and his cowboy Gospel tunes will lift your spirits. The only thing better than this spectacular performance is the New Orleans-style brunch buffet catered by Gristmill River Restaurant and Bar.

Jason Boland and the StragglersBand Photo

Catch a great show on February 19 at 8 p.m. Jason Boland puts a spin on his music with a modern and rebellious flair. Though you might hear country tones and twangs, it’s hard to really pinpoint Boland’s genre. He’s accompanied by the Stragglers, whose beats have garnered the team a large fan base.

Achieve Your Fitness Resolution on Vacation

It’s a new year, which means that lovely “r” word is probably racing through your mind. Whatever your resolutions might be, you can still accomplish them on vacation. Race over to Hill Country Cottage and RV Resort this season to beat your winter blues and achieve your goals.

Looking to improve your fitness? There’s hardly anything more motivating than a race, where a crowd cheers you on and fellow runners and walkers push you to the finish line. But some races can be a little boring, which is all the more reason to come out to the Natural Bridge Caverns for their thrilling 5K, 10K and Half Marathon events.

Start your race in the belly of a cave. This awe-inspiring setting will offer a course you’ve never traveled before. Natural Bridge Caverns are Texas’ largest caverns, and they descend down to Pluto’s anteroom.

Whether you’re a walker, runner or marathon racer, all levels are welcome. The 5K course runs over Jeep trails that make a loop and finish in the village. The 10K race ventures up a hill and merges with the 5K course. And the half marathon covers a wide variety of terrain with spectacular views of the Texas Hill Country.

Register online before February 1, 2016 for a discounted price! Then rest your legs and enjoy spending time with loved ones at Hill Country Cottage and RV Resort in New Braunfels.
