During the winter time, New Braunfels is the perfect fishing getaway, as the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department stocks rainbow trout into the Guadalupe River, aka one of America's top 100 trout streams, every winter season. Lucky for you, the Guadalupe River is about 75 yards from the home’s front door, with 100 feet of direct river access. Here, you can test your luck at catching one of the abundant fish species in the river, including rainbow trout, the state native Guadalupe Bass, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, several species of sunfish and the Rio Grande perch.
Also during the winter, Canyon Lake Dam is the perfect spot to fish and fly fish! To help you get started, there are several guides in the area that provide lessons and float or wading trips.
There's also an event for nearly every fall and winter month! During September, check out the annual Comal County Fair & Parade for a rodeo, livestock show, BBQ cook-off, and a washer pitchin' tournament. If you're around during October, you'll have to visit the Gruene Music & Wine Festival, where the Gruene Historic District showcases wine, beer and live music for 4 days. Additionally, be a part of Oktoberfest for a fun time drinking beer, playing games and celebrating this fun event!
November is the prime time to visit Wurstfest in Landa Park, where you can sip a German beer and sample the tasty bratwurst and prezels during the 10-day celebration. And of course, December holds plenty of holiday activities, including Wassailfest in New Braunfels, an annual tradition that can be traced back to medieval Germany! Additionally, you'll want to check out Gruene Christmas Market Days for a festive atmosphere!
Tube rentals are conveniently located on either side at Mountain Breeze or Gilligan’s Island. Enter the river from the River Road Villas community and be picked up at a variety of places to be returned to the property!
Live music venues abound all around the area, including Whitewater Amphitheater, Gruene or River Road Ice House, all just a short drive away. Gruene is home to Gruene Hall, which is the oldest dance hall in Texas, and also has many wineries, antique shopping and great restaurants.
Boating, water-skiing and sailing can be found 10 minutes away at Canyon Lake. The drive up River Road to the lake is notably one of the most scenic areas in Texas, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for deer, turkeys and other wildlife along the way.
For more water fun during the summertime, head to Schlitterbahn, a great water park that everyone in the group is sure to enjoy!
When you’re not cooking at the house, try one of the notable restaurants in the area. The Gristmill is a must-try, as it is a multi-level restaurant that features outdoor and indoor dining with sweeping views of the Guadalupe River. Other great spots include Gruene River Grill, the Gruene Door, Callahan's Pub & Pizza, Cantina del Rio, and for the beer drinkers, New Braunfels Brewing Company and Faust Brewing Co. are definitely must-tries! If you’re in the mood for something sweet, stop in at the oldest operating bakery in the state, Naegelin’s Bakery.
