WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE NEW BRAUNFELS RESTAURANTS?
We have several wonderful restaurants! Huisache is one of my favorites, but MacAdoo’s, The Downtower and Krause’s are strong contenders! Each offers a different venue and menu!! Huisache has a wine bar and they brought in old buildings and made them into shops! It allows you an opportunity to truly enjoy what our area has to offer! MacAdoo’s is inside of the old Post Office and they kept its charm! There are Fat Tuesday crawfish parties in February and wonderful seafood all year round! The Downtowner offers a more upscale menu with foods that will delight your tastebuds! Krause’s is similar to Wurstfest all year long! With their beer garden and flags of all of our heritage, it is a definite place to meet old and new friends
WHAT IS A GREAT NEW BRAUNFELS OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE?
Our rivers offer tubing, grilling and just plain fun! This beautiful city is full of parks! Landa Park has a huge spring fed swimming area that is sure to please the entire family. There is a diving board and a long slide, plus a kids area with shallow water. There is also an olympic size swimming pool and a train for family tours of the park. Fishing in the river and picnicking is always a pleasure!
WHAT NEW BRAUNFELS EVENTS ARE NOT TO BE MISSED?
I’d have to say Wurstfest is our most popular. It is a German festival that last 10 days long. Umpa music, local bands and favorites, potato pancakes and lots and lots of beer! Everyone dresses up and has a truly awesome time! But, there are plenty of other festivals too. Wassilfest is another great event where the local city groups compete for the best wassil! Bring your own flask, because it is kid-friendly and full of fun!!
