    The Comal River is THE tubing hot spot. Fondly called the "longest shortest river in the world" by locals, the Comal runs entirely within the city limits of New Braunfels. With the assistance of knowledgeable River Outfitters, like Corner Tubes and Rockin 'R' River Rides, you are guaranteed to have a good time! So, call one up & let's get tubin'!

  • Gruene Historic District  

    Recognized as a "Premier Attraction for Visitors" by the Texas travel industry, the Gruene Historic District is sure to put a smile on your face. What was once a sleepy little town is now "bona fide" Texas! Look the part by picking up a Stetson at the Gruene Hat Company, grab the best margarita in town (voted #1 for 10 years running!) at Cantina del Rio, then two-step the night away to live music at Gruene Hall, the Oldest Dancehall in Texas. Finally, catch a snooze at the ever-charming Gruene Mansion Inn before getting up and doing it all again.

  • Guadalupe River  

    The Guadalupe River starts in Kerrville, Texas, before flowing into Canyon Lake and eventually meandering down to us, creating what fishing enthusiasts like to call "The epicenter for year-round fly-fishing!" We recommend booking a stay along River Road to fully enjoy everything the Guadalupe has to offer.
