The Winter Texan season is upon us! This is that special time of the year where the Hill Country greets part-time Texans. Winter Texans flee from the colder areas of the north for the warmer areas, like New Braunfels. In a way, New Braunfels can be called “a second home” for these seasonal citizens. But what is the appeal for Winter Texans to call the Hill Country home? Here are the “5 Things A Winter Texan Can Enjoy In New Braunfels.”

  1. Wassailfest. On December 1st, the vendors set up their delicious cider samplings for all of New Braunfels to enjoy. With the splendid view of twinkling Christmas lights, business-to-business mingling, and the amazing taste of wassail - there’s plenty of fun to have during our very own holiday festival. http://www.nbtexas.org/1490/Wassailfest 
  2. Christmas at The Caverns. Celebrate the holidays on a whole new level. On select days, Natural Bridge Caverns brings out their Christmas cheer and decorates the park in beautiful lights.
