Why New Braunfels?
Besides having one of the more interesting names on our list, New Braunfels is also tied with Tyler for 8th place on our top 10 list. It’s smaller than most of our other places, at a comfortable 57,740, but still brings all the excitement in a big way. The place is always tooting its own horn, literally, in it’s No. 3 ranked music venues or at one of the many festivals held year round. It’s also a very active place during the day, and a hopping place at night as it holds fifth place in both those categories.
The events here can be pretty thrilling, besides the Comal County Fair and Rodeo, which includes such fun events as mutton bustin, locals can get their kicks through rafting, kids day events, and more. Because of the city’s german heritage (if you were wondering about that name) they also hold a yearly german-style sausage festival. And yes, we promise it’s the fun kind.
