Outdoorsy pursuits and German roots! With a plethora of activities on offer for those who want to absorb some of that Texan sun -- plus a combination of German, Texan, and Mexican cultural influences -- New Braunfels is one of Texas's top tourist destinations. To absorb the nature and culture in this fun city and its surrounds, book a New Braunfels car rental.
The best way to get to New Braunfels is via a flight to San Antonio. New Braunfels rental cars are available for pickup in the city center, a 32-minute transfer from the airport. Your first activity on the list should be the favorite local pastime -- tubing! Rent a tube and ride the rapids of the Guadalupe River or enjoy a more leisurely float down Comal River. More water sports action is on offer at Schlitterbahn water park -- water slides, inland surfing, and giant hot tubs abound. Wakeboarders flock to the Texas Ski Ranch for the only cable wake boarding lake in the state. New Braunfels is also a fishing hot spot. Anglers throw out a line to catch bluegill, rainbow trout, black bass, and flathead catfish.
New Braunfels was founded by Germans in 1845, and the Deutsch influence is still seen today -- especially at the yearly Wurstfest, which draws 100,000 people to the city for 10 days each November. The crowds don lederhosen and dirndls to feast on sausages and beer to the sounds of oom-pa-pa bands.
An hour north of New Braunfels is the live music capital of the world, Austin. Take a drive there and join the Rockabilly kids, Honky Tonkers, and mustachioed hipsters in the raucous Eastside live music venues. Other Austin attractions include the Renaissance Revivalist state capitol building and the vintage Austin Steam Train.
