Posted by Vintage Oaks


So, you’ve decided to relocate to the Texas Hill Country—if so, you’re likely more than familiar with the many financially based reasons to live in New Braunfels and the surrounding areas, including the excellent job market, relatively low home prices, and vibrant economy. However, if you have a family in tow, it’s just as important to learn about the environmental aspects of your prospective community as well. For that reason, we’ve compiled this guide to family living in the Texas Hill Country.

Four Important Considerations for Your Relocation


When you’re searching for New Braunfels-area homes, you’ll need to consider the amenities available and the environment you’ll be raising your children within. We’ve highlighted some key aspects to look for, including: 


Health care

Your family’s health is your priority, and New Braunfels has a diverse health care system with several providers to meet that need. Whether you need emergency care from one of the two major hospital systems in the area, pediatric care, or specialized services like dental, vision, chiropractic, and more, there is a wealth of options in the area. The New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce provides a full listing of medical care in the area should you need more information.


New Braunfels is home to two primary public school options, including New Braunfels Independent School District and Comal Independent School District. The city features private schools as well, and those outside the New Braunfels city limits may utilize other area schools like Navarro, Seguin, or Marion ISDs—use this handy tool to see which district your ideal neighborhood falls within. After graduation, many students choose to attend one of the many area colleges and universities, including the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Family activities

From sports and recreation programs to riverside fun, New Braunfels is full of activities ideal for the family. The city’s many parks and playgrounds, as well as the comprehensive sports lineup, are accessible via Parks and Recreation. In addition, one of the best reasons to live in New Braunfels is regular, easy access to the area’s premier waterpark—Schlitterbahn has multiple slides, rides, and a themed resort.

Outdoor adventures

The region has multiple lakes (including Canyon Lake), and rivers families can use for boating, fishing, tubing, and more.
