New Braunfels is the second-fastest growing city in the United States. That’s no accident. Nestled between Austin and San Antonio on Interstate 35, the community benefits from its proximity to both while maintaining a unique identity all its own. Go boot scootin’ across the dance floor of fabled Gruene Hall, float lazily down the city’s two rivers or spend a day at Schlitterbahn, the world’s best water park. Restaurants and retail are booming and opportunity awaits.
