While there are plenty of things to keep you busy at Jellystone Park™, from the Water Zone to the jumping pillow and gem mining to Lazer Tag, we understand the desire to get out and explore the beautiful Texas Hill Country while you’re in the area! Luckily, our Camp-Resort is closely located to many unique Texan cities. Just a mere 25 minutes away, one can find the city of New Braunfels, Texas. And if you only have a day to spend in New Braunfels, it’s sure to be a busy one spent exploring different must-see attractions! Keep reading to find out about some of our favorites!

Landa Park

Landa Park offers numerous features for you and your family to explore its 51 acres. Want to get out on the water and tour the lake? They have paddleboat rentals. Interested in playing mini golf? They have that too! Plus, the park has a miniature train that makes seeing the whole park both easy and fun! Not to mention, most of their attractions are only a small fee—making it an affordable stop on your day trip itinerary.

Comal River

One of the most popular times to visit New Braunfels is during the summer months due to water-based activities such as the Comal and Guadalupe Rivers. The Comal River is a natural body of water (which eventually merges with the Guadalupe River), that you’ll want to check out while you’re in New Braunfels! With a temperature of 70-72 degrees year-round, it is an option for your family to enjoy both in the summer heat or in the cooler winter months.

Escape Haus

Another must see while day tripping in New Braunfels is the Escape Haus—and the good news is that it is only a 60 minute stop! Escape Haus is a live-action Escape the Room Game, where you, your family and friends, and potentially some strangers, will be placed in a room for 60 minutes during which you are tasked to find and solve clues to escape. With multiple room options to book, the fun is never-ending. But the question is, will you escape the room in 60 minutes?

Animal World & Snake Farm Zoo

Do you have some animal lovers in your family? Then you’ll want to make the Animal World & Snake Farm Zoo a top priority stop during your day trip to New Braunfels. Home to over 500 different species of animals such as birds, snakes, and lions, to monkeys, rodents, and sloths, you can spend hours getting to know some of your favorite furry, scaly, and feathery friends. In one place, you’re able to see different animals from all over the world making this a zoo experience you’re unlikely to forget.

 

Since you’re only spending a day in New Braunfels, we think that these attractions are a good place to start your adventure! See one, or see them all, either way you’re sure to leave with a smile. And the best part is, you’ll be heading back to your favorite Jellystone Park™ to get some much needed rest after a busy day of exploring!
