New Braunfels Makes List of Coolest Suburbs – Features Local Downtown Spots

Well, New Braunfels, you’ve done it again – you’ve made another list. This time it was’s best suburbs in 35 of America’s cities.


When we undertook this piece, we had a simple goal. Tell someone moving out of a particular city the coolest potential smaller community to live in nearby. In doing so, we weighed three major factors:

1) A good (or at least respectable) food/drink scene, with enough places to go close to home to not always have to trudge back into the city.
2) Not so far away from the city that the commute is awful
3) A place with a history or its own unique elements that separate it from just planned suburban sprawl

So, when it came to the City of San Antonio, New Braunfels was a shinning star. See what Thrillist had to say about our city, and their shout out to New Braunfels Downtown Association, The Faust Hotel and Brewing Co., by reading the full list here.
