Holiday Happenings in the Hill Country

The fun never ends in Texas! Take it from all the “Winter Texans” out there who call New Braunfels home from November through March. Over 3,000 guests from midwestern states enjoy our mild temperatures and reasonable prices each winter.  During the so-called “off season” there are plenty of things to do and see in our charming little town. Check out the list below of some of the top Winter Texan attractions:
