Guadalupe River - New Braunfels

On our last day in town, we drove around the city of New Braunfels and checked out the Guadalupe River.  Since it was still summertime, there were quite a few people tubing on the river which was something I had never seen.  Unfortunately, we didn't have the time to do it so I hope I can try it on a future trip out there! 

New Braunfels was quite an interesting city and very beautiful.  It is a German immigrant town and is known for its large water park, Schlitterbahn.  Something else we didn't have time to go to (I wish we did as it was hot and pretty humid while we were there that week). 

The one bad element to New Braunfels is many of the homes built along the river are the ones that are destroyed when the Guadalupe overflows it banks.  Canyon Lake empties into the Guadalupe and if there is considerable floods (fairly common in Texas I am told), these homes have no chance of surviving, yet people continue to rebuild in the same location each time. 

The pictures in this blog are from driving around the city and the river roads.
