We love a weekend at the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels, TX. This year we camped at the Lazy L and L Campsite. It’s between the third and fourth river crossing, almost to Canyon Lake. The river was slow flowing. It took 5 hours to float a 2 hour float. I didn’t mind at all. Time stops when your floating in an inter tube with a cooler full of cold adult beverages and no where to be. Normally the water in the river is extremely cold. This year was a exception to the rule. Make sure you bring plenty of sunscreen, drinks, and snacks. Once you get on the river there’s no getting off until you get to your appointed take out destination.
On our way home from the Guadalupe River we stopped in Gruene, TX. It was a first for me. Gruene gives you the feeling of a slower place in time. Stroll down the sleepy streets and visit the antique shops. A little digging and you can find some really unusual treasures. Make sure and visit Gruene Hall, it’s one of the oldest dance halls in Texas. It doesn’t take a whole day to see Gruene so plan your trip around either San Antoino or New Braunfels.
