Gruene, Texas is the place to be! It is placed between San Antonio and New Braunfels. This little town is the perfect vacation getaway. The area is full of fun things to do. If you love food it is the perfect area to find some really good restaurants. One of my families favorite places is located on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. About every place you’ll see in Gruene and the New Braunfels area is filled with German style food as it is a heavily German immigrated area. And the Biergarten on the Riverwalk is the place you should not miss if you’re wanting some sausage, sour kraut, large pretzels, and even larger beer. The food is wonderful but so are the people, who make the place a magical experience.
I’ll have Hofbrau please. Danke schoen!
This guy played his trumpet with an accordionist. They were great fun to talk to. My brother made sure the guy was taken care of. Beer cures the performance jitters.
Even more relaxing is Downtown Gruene. From boutiques, to their own vineyard, to antique shops, and restaurants overlooking the river; Downtown Gruene is beautiful and fulfilling. It a great tourist location with a lot to do. I suggest you book your hotel to this spot. You won’t be disappointed. Our adventures in San Antonio ended with a stop at Lucy’s Fried Chicken. Absolutely finger licking. Probably the best fried chicken you can get in San Antonio.
Visit their site and book it!
My brother trying calf fries for the first time. They taste like chicken!
After our vacation in San Antonio it has been nice to relax at home and spend time with friends. I love to go out and have fun, but the truth is, I am a home body. Home is where the heart is after all.
