The outdoorsy German-American town of New Braunfels draws Texas-size crowds for attractions both wet and wild. Two cold spring rivers run through town, the Guadalupe and Comal, so tubing, fishing and swimming opportunities abound. One of the best waterparks in the US, Schlitterbahn, also calls New Braunfels home. And the local location of Texas-founded gas station/convenience store Buc-ee’s clocks in as the largest convenience store in the world (because ‘Merica!). Expectedly, there’s no shortage of hotels in New Braunfels, either – all bookable with Culture Trip.
