Spring Break Adventures in New Braunfels the Whole Family Will Enjoy

By  | 

Tucked away in the Texas Hill Country sits the city of New Braunfels, where a spring break for the whole family awaits! If you’re dreaming about a getaway with a fresh take to clear the cobwebs off and get rid of the winter doldrums, this is the place for you. New Braunfels is the perfect setting for a family looking to enjoy down-time together, get in fun activities, and take in some of that Texas-sized charm and great hospitality. Heck, you might not want to leave!

Temperatures in this neck of the woods around spring break typically range between 70 and 78 degrees, give or take a few. Even if it’s not so sunny out, the area bluebonnets that have bloomed tend to bring with them their own brand of beautiful. Add to that the great area attractions such as Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch and Natural Bridge Caverns, and you’ve got a recipe for sweet family holiday success! Something so radically unique is sure to leave a lasting impression on your family for a spring break vacation they’ll never forget! Gear up and go caving. See the caverns with hand-held lanterns or participate in a guided tour. When you’re done there, drive through 450 acres of the Texas Hill Country at the wildlife ranch, which features 500 animals including exotic, native Texan, and endangered species.

If water is the missing ingredient, then Schlitterbahn’s flagship park has the fix! By developing a way to heat the water park to a comfortable level in moderate temperatures, Blastenhoff (the most popular part of the park) has become the place to be for all families looking to splash into spring break! It features the park’s biggest rides, such as the Master Blaster. That exhilarating uphill water coaster includes a couple of three-story drops. Families can enjoy unique riding experiences they won’t find elsewhere. Blastenhoff also features two kids’ areas and a family ride called Wolfpack, which takes groups of three through its twists and turns in a giant, circular raft. Also not to be missed is the Torrent Wave River, with pulsing waves coming every 45 seconds in an artificial current where tubes or no tubes are permitted! With 220 rooms and 69 different room types, it’s safe to say there’s space to suit any type of family. Schlitterbahn has vacation homes, modern “loftominiums,” and even riverbend cabins for a great retreat even when the weather’s unsure. Plus, waterpark passes are free if your family is staying on site!
