New Braunfels is a great place to visit. Make the Swap Meet a yearly weekend getaway and stay at one of the nearby hotels. Spend Saturday checking out downtown antique shops or go tubing on the invigorating Guadalupe or Comal Rivers winding through town. You'll still have time to clean up the car and go honky-tonking in historic Gruene Hall.
