Hungry? Food Spots to try in New Braunfels

If you’re stopping by our New Braunfels Schlitterbahn Waterpark this Easter break, or are just planning ahead for your Summer Vacation, and are already dreading the moment someone in your group says “Where should we go to dinner?” and the awkward silence or “I don’t care” that follows, here’s a handy list of some of the most unique places to visit while in our lovely town. American For those of you that are looking for a little bit of everything, here are a couple classic NB spots to consider: Pat’s Place (menu I map) Pat’s Place is always a hopping spot for people visiting the waterpark or coming off the Comal River. Its location is prime, and is within walking distance if you’re staying in our Treehaus Luxury Suites or Condos by Surfenburg. They have a little bit of food of all types, but are mostly known for their sandwiches, burgers, and enchiladas. You’ll even get your drink served to you in a little mason jar! Also, if you’re not really feeling like going out, but don’t feel like making food, you can call ahead and grab your Take-out without the stress of waiting for a table. They have a couple back rooms, so if you have a large party, they should be able to pull enough tables together for you, you just might have to wait a bit!...

Outside the Waterpark Fun!

If you’re spending your vacation with us at our Schlitterbahn New Braunfels Waterpark and Resort, and are thinking to yourself, “self, what else am I going to do while I’m on vacation?” have no fear, because New Braunfels and its surrounding areas are full of fun activities your entire group can enjoy. Texas is known for its finicky weather, so in the event that there’s one day of your trip where the weather isn’t Waterpark-friendly, here are some alternative ideas on what to do! If you’re traveling with kiddos this year there are some kid-approved options in town and within about 20 miles from the Waterpark: In New Braunfels, about a mile from the Resort Office, we have our very own Children’s Museum. They have fun exhibits where the kids can let their imaginations run wild and they have a newly renovated Water Table outside with their Jungle Gym. Every day the Wonder Shop has a different interactive craft or experience! (I hear they even have their very own pet Turtles swimming around!!!) On the outskirts of New Braunfels, traveling towards San Antonio, lies Animal World and Snake Farm. It’s basically a mini Zoo in the middle of suburbia. You’ll see Lions & Zebras & Camels, Oh My! There’s also snakes (obviously) so if you have a reptile fear, maybe skip this one. For more info, check out their...

Fun!

"Four night stay over Christmas-New Years. Great time and friendly staff. Hotel room nice and large...five of us had plenty of room. The torrent river rocks!!! Rode for a couple hours every day...exhausting and memorable! The two tube slides were good in the enclosed waterpark...only wish there were a couple more slides. Thanks for a great vacation!" --Shane S., Trip Advisor (regarding our South Padre Resort)

Awesome local waterpark

my kids and i visit almost every sunday during the summer months , we live about an hour away , but well worth the drive , parking is easy and accessible, they let you bring in your own food and drinks , the attractions are plentiful , and the staff is very friendly, the lazy river is awesome , there are days we just float around that the whole time, see a short line for a ride , jump out and it usually outs you right back in the river, food is available, we just normally end our day with a oreo cookie funnel cake located by the exit. -- Brian C., Trip Advisor for Galveston location

“A MUST Visit!!”

This is by far the best waterpark I've ever visited, and I've been to many. It is huge and there is so much to do. The lazy river is just amazing and goes on and on forever. And the wave pool is so much fun. There's plenty of chairs and tables to put your belongings, and you can bring your own cooler with your own food which I would advise you to do. Love it, love, love it!! I can't wait to go back next year!!
