When planning a trip to New Braunfels, Texas, many people consider traveling during the hot summer months when the Guadalupe River is alive with tourists floating about in inner tubes. With that being said, if a laid back vacation complete with quiet moments on the hiking trail, foggy mornings spent fly-fishing on the River, and live country music in the evenings is more to your liking, we suggest planning a trip during the winter months. Not only are the winter months the best time to fish and hike, October and November are filled with events that are guaranteed fun. Here are a few upcoming events, both online and in-person, that you won’t want to miss!
