New Braunfels (/nju brnflz/ ( listen) new BRAWN-felz) is a city in Comal and Guadalupe counties in the U.S. state of Texas. It is the seat of Comal County and is a principal city of the San Antonio–New Braunfels metropolitan statistical area. The city's population was 57,740 at the 2010 census, with an estimated population of 70,543 in 2015.
I go to New Braunfels for the Comal and Guadalupe rivers. There's nothing more relaxing than tubing the rivers during the hot Texas summers.
What stands out the most is the beginning of the Comal River which is locate in Landa Park, New Braunfels. The spring-fed river begins here and you can walk right up to the spot where it comes out of the earth and sit there on stone benches that have been carved into the river's wall.
