Why New Braunfels is The Perfect Mix Between Small Town Living and City Life
New Braunfels may be the second fastest‑growing city in the United States, but the city certainly hasn’t lost its small‑town charm. Residents of New Braunfels are just minutes away from both the picturesque Texas Hill Country and exceptional amenities that only cities can provide – making New Braunfels the very definition of the best of both worlds and the perfect mix between small‑town living and city life.
Enjoy all the perks of the City
The city of New Braunfels has its fair share of large name stores. The New Braunfels Town Center at Creekside alone includes stores such as Target, Best Buy, Burlington, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Ulta, Famous Footwear, and TJ Maxx. However, New Braunfels isn’t lacking in small businesses. In fact, there are quite a few small businesses that help contribute to downtown, small‑town charm. From fashion to unique toys to plants there’s a quirky mom and pop shop waiting for you to discover it in downtown New Braunfels. Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper city without a bar scene.

Suburban Community Characteristics
Perhaps one of the best features of small‑town life is the sense of community you feel. New Braunfels sure does have its fair share of community events like the annual Jingle Bell Run or St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl that brings the entire community together.
But they also have various events each month like the Texas Farmers Market takes place every Saturday (rain or shine) just off the Main Plaza that features more than fifty local vendors and lots of local residents. Or the live concerts downtown at Gruene Hall that always draws in a crowd of neighbors.
When in crisis there’s no better place to live than a place with a small town feel. Like in early 2020 when COVID‑19 first hit, the city of New Braunfels immediately created a plan and came together to help support the community.
And when highly attended city activities weren’t an option, residents of New Braunfels could still enjoy the beautiful Texas Hill Country that’s just minutes away. Locals can enjoy a nice day at Landa Park out in the fresh air swimming, camping, fishing, or even golfing!
