I have been coming to New Braunfels since I was small, and I have watched the changes ever since. The area has been flooded and rebuilt, and the Schlitterbahn grew up from one ride to a major international sensation. It was ranked the top waterpark by the Travel Channel, and it is one of the biggest attractions besides the actual river itself. some people come strictly to vistit the water park and miss all the architecture of the small town around it. I love to ride around in my car and see the changes that inevitably happen. We had family that stayed in the old Landa Resort that is now part of the Schlitterbahn Resort. The town has been one of my favorite vacation places since I could drive a car.
