What is Life Like Living in New Braunfels, TX?

Posted by Vintage Oaks

In New Braunfels, families enjoy the best of both worlds: a friendly, small-town environment with vast land and home options, great area amenities, and easy access to big-city conveniences and employment centers. So what is life like in New Braunfels? It’s simply perfect.



New Braunfels in a Nutshell

Within New Braunfels, residents take pride in their growing city and all it has to offer. They love the convenience of being able to get to work easily in Austin or San Antonio and come home to every amenity imaginable.

A great array of recreational opportunities ranging from watersports to hiking and biking, excellent restaurants boasting of some of Texas’ favorite spots for barbecue and waterfront dining, plus a little taste of history in the charming town of Gruene and the unmatched natural beauty the Texas Hill Country is known for—that’s just some of what makes living in New Braunfels so ideal. New Braunfels’ residents also appreciate the great shopping, including downtown New Braunfels’ historic main plaza and the Premium Outlets in adjacent San Marcos, named the third-best place to shop in the world by ABC’s “The View.”

The Best Land for Sale in Texas

Throughout Texas, acreage properties allow landbuyers the opportunity to purchase exactly what they want. Whether they are looking to buy in a private, faraway location or in an amenity-rich master-planned community, choices are vast. Increasingly, the choice is Vintage Oaks. In fact, this master-planned community located right on the Texas Wine Trail is the fastest-growing community in the Texas Hill Country in one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, New Braunfels.

Natural Beauty

With rolling hills, lakes and rivers, towering trees and abundant greenery, there is always something beautiful to see in New Braunfels. Taking a long walk along the river or picnicking under a 100-year-old tree has never been so lovely. But neither has driving to the market or the mall. The scenery in New Braunfels is simply without compare.

Great fun

Whether the thrills of Schlitterbahn are what get you excited or merely relaxing at Landa Park is more your speed, you’ll always find something fun to do in New Braunfels. Wine tasting on the Texas Wine Trail, with more than 35 unique wineries throughout the Hill Country, is another favorite activity.
