The growing city of New Braunfels is a recreational haven, a scenic wonder, and an incredibly well-located city between Austin and San Antonio in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. But New Braunfels is also a hotspot drawing couples for a night of fun and romance. Here are a few great ideas for a great date night in New Braunfels.
Go wine tasting
Head to Dry Comal Creek Vineyards, just across the street from Vintage Oaks, where you can taste their wines, take a tour, or take a class to “taste wines from around the world, from Burgundy to West Texas…and learn about everything from winemaking to food-and-wine pairing.”
Natural Bridge Wildlife Park
It's not exactly a night event (the park closes between 4:30 and 6pm depending on the time of year), but an outing to Natural Bridge Wildlife Park makes for a great time. Drive through the park to see exotic animals including kangaroos, ostriches, and zebras. Tip: get there early in the ay for the best chance at feeding the animals. They may not be hungry later in the day.
Nothing is as quintessentially date night in New Braunfels as an evening dancing at Gruene Hall. Get there early and have dinner on the river at the Gristmill, and don’t forget to leave time for a stroll through the historic town after.
Head to New Braunfels Square, stroll the tree-lined streets, window shop for antiques, and catch free live music at Phoenix Saloon. It'll be a great night enjoying New Braunfels' more adult activities.
Take a bike ride through some truly beautiful natural surroundings and be sure to stop and spend some time at the Faust Bridge. The views over the Guadalupe below are well worth it.
Act like a kid at Schlitterbahn
From water coasters to river adventures, Schlitterbahn is one of the best things to do in New Braunfels, with or without kids.
Explore Vintage Oaks
Attend an event at Vintage Oaks’ Tuscan-style Clubhouse, with indoor and outdoor gathering areas and a catering kitchen, and you’ll be in the center of never ending natural beauty. Nothing says romance like strolling among rolling hills and majestic oak trees!
