Memorial Day not only signifies that summer is arriving rapidly but most importantly it is a remembrance of those who risked their lives to serve in the United States Military. On this day it is important to commemorate all these men and women on this special day dedicated to them. While gathering with friends and family this Memorial Day, remember that we are celebrating the dedication of these men and women to our country and thanking them for all they have given for us. 

Here are the 5 Things To Do In New Braunfels For Memorial Day:

Visit memorials
In traditional observance,  you are able to visit the graves of our fallen heroes to place flags or flowers. We also encourage you to visit your local memorial and fly your United States flag. For information on flying your United States flag on Memorial Day visit usmemorialday.org
 
BBQ
The sun has started to peek through the clouds, and that means it’s time to have a spectacular day with the family with good-ol-fashioned Barbeque. Enjoy the great gift our soldiers have given us through their sacrifices; freedom. The sunshine is here so take advantage of it.

Tube on the rivers
With the rising temperatures, it’s always a great idea to get out on the Comal or Guadalupe Rivers this Memorial Day. Take a drive down FM 306 to the Horseshoe or stay right in New Braunfels and ride down the Chute over and over again. 

Texas Ski Ranch
A skate, wake, and boat park for the whole family to enjoy. Get active during your Memorial Day at this 70-acre sports paradise. There’s also plenty of relaxation to be had at their man-made beaches. http://texasskiranch.com/ 

Schlitterbahn
The Bahn’s open, and Memorial Day is the perfect opportunity for you, friends, and family to take a splashing vacation. Hop on the Masterblaster, Skycoaster, and more thrilling attractions at the largest waterpark in the nation.
