Gruene, Texas

Take a break from fast-paced city life and visit historic Gruene, Texas. This classic hill country town has so much to offer, you’ll never want to leave. Bring the family to stay in one of the 30 uniquely decorated rooms of the Gruene Mansion Inn. After a relaxing evening, wake up refreshed and ready to enjoy the many shops and restaurants located in Gruene. Don’t forget to make your way to Texas’ oldest continually operating and most famous dance hall, Gruene Hall. To find out more and plan your trip, visit

San Marcos, Texas

Make plans to spend a fun-filled day in San Marcos. San Marcos has some of the best shopping in Texas, with two outlet malls and historic downtown shopping, you’ll find everything you’re looking for and more. Once you’ve indulged in retail therapy, check out the Texas State University Aquarena Center and take a glass-bottomed boat tour to learn about the aquatic life in Texas. There is even more family fun awaiting you at Wonder World Park. There you can take a tour of the nation’s only example of an earthquake-formed cave, take in the scenic views of Texas from on high in the Tejas Observation Tower or experience the wonders of the Anti-Gravity House.

Guadalupe River

If you just can’t get enough of the beautiful Texas outdoors, spend this Spring Break on the Guadalupe River. Take the family camping at one of several campgrounds located along the river and enjoy river activities such as tubing, rafting and fishing. New Braunfels and the Guadalupe River bring together the best of both worlds. There is the solitude and peaceful retreat of camping and fishing, but you’re still a short distance from great dining and shopping. For more information and to plan your river trip, visit
