These stately trees cover the edges of many homesites and lots of wooded space in the area. The oaks create a precious sense of peacefulness and privacy that the community is known for. Some lots are more densely covered with trees than others, so whether you’re hoping for more seclusion in the woods, or more open space for the kids to play, you can find the perfect balance at Vintage Oaks. Another natural feature you’ll love at Vintage Oaks is the view. Many lots overlook the wooded valleys of the Hill Country. You’ll never get tired of watching from your home as the sunset hits the trees and the grass.

What is New Braunfels known for?

New Braunfels is located in Comal Country and was founded by German settlers in 1845, and German culture is still prevalent in the city today. You’ll see German traditions in the food, the beer, and the annual Wurstfest celebration.

For much of its history, New Braunfels has been known as a small town. In the next few years, however, the population will be approaching 100,000. Even with all the growth over the years, New Braunfels has an abundance of open space, quiet neighborhoods, and Hill Country scenery to enjoy.

What to do in Downtown New Braunfels

One of the best things you can do downtown is eat. Local restaurants provide unique ways to take in the culture of New Braunfels. Bars and saloons downtown let residents unwind together, enjoying craft beer and live music.

Family fun is easy to find in New Braunfels, like at McKenna’s Children Museum, the enormous Schlitterbahn Waterpark, or the Natural Bridge underground caverns. 

The Comal and the Guadalupe rivers run through New Braunfels and are an essential part of the scenery. Spending a lazy day floating down the river on a tubing trip is a classic pastime in New Braunfels. It’s a fitting activity for a friendly, easy-going town.

Moving to New Braunfels
