A spring-fed stream the bluish-green color of oxidized copper, the Comal River may be known as the shortest river in the world, but on its banks rests the long-on-fun town of New Braunfels. Settled by German immigrants in the mid 1800s, it's an excellent stop-off point for exploring the Texas Hill Country, but it's also home to a thriving German-influenced community and the largest water park in the state, Schlitterbahn.

Each Treehaus Suite at this 180-room resort sits amid the treetops overlooking the river. Appointed with hand-hewn log furniture, wood-panel walls, and log columns, the two- and three-bedroom suites feature spacious living areas, and all accommodations are equipped with TVs and full kitchens with all the basic cooking utensils.

In town, you'll find an interesting mix of Germany and Texas—Gruene Hall, for example, with its 1878 white clapboard facade, is the oldest continually operating dance hall in Texas. A few old-country biergartens punctuate the townscape, and The Gristmill River Restaurant & Bar, celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, dishes up classic Southern and Tex-Mex fare, from fried catfish to tomatillo chicken. Next to the resort, take a gander at three floors of hand-painted ornaments, American folk art, quilts, and holiday gifts at Schlitterbahn's Christmas Shoppe.

Weather permitting, take a stroll by the river in Landa Park. This 51-acre green space features, in addition to plenty of benches and picnic tables, a miniature train for kids, jogging paths that wind through centuries-old oak trees, mini golf, and paddle boat rentals.

  • "Overall, we love the Schlitterbahn Resort. The service is great and you can't beat the convenience. We will continue to go back every summer."
