I have lived in New Braunfels for almost 25 years and absolutely love it! We first moved here from S.A. because we wanted to live on Lake Dunlap. That is where we raised our kids and they sure had fun. My husband would drive home from work and take the kids waterskiing until it go too dark. We all had season passes to Schlitterbahn and the kids would go there to meet their friends almost every day. Schlitterbahn is also where our kids had their first jobs. New Braunfels is a very peacful, friendly city, but is near enough to San Anonio and Austin that you can enjoy activities there also. What more could you ask for: Friendly people, lots of water, good schools, and the beautiful hill country!

Smile Best Reception - Television in New Braunfels

Our son is moving to New Braunfels.
Any ideas about the BEST TV reception (and costs) would be greatly appreciated!
Direct TV???

He is not interested in 200 channels...
...and is on a budget.
Just local news, TBN Christian Channel, and a good movie channel.
But, we understand that DTV has reception problems in New Braunfels....
....and requires that you choose the RIGHT antenna.

Your ideas & comments will be GREATLY appreciated!!!!!

I moved to New Braunfels in 2007. The town looks great. New Braunfels High School was great. THEN, We found out a lot of things. First, if you buils or buy out side the city, look out. the bulding contractors do not and I say "Do NOT have any onspections on home bulding. they are free to get away with any thing. No inspections on any thing. they do not have to have a license, insurance. Texas had a TRCC but the wonderfull texas state senators trashed it. NBHS? It has changed, I would it has gone down hill in the 3 years we have been here. At the high school in the main office You can watch Fulx news. think about it, they have fox on the TV all day long. If you are a Dem, pick your new home wiseley. if you are a repug, there are lots of them, if you are a reglious repug, you will fit right in!

That's one of the things we enjoy about New Braunfels - we still respect traditional values, attend church and generally enjoy our lives and our neighbors. Not real sure what a "repug" is, unless you're simply trying to be as obnoxious as possible - but that's cool - the neat thing is that we welcome everyone, knowing that even the folks with odd ideas and abrasive personalities can be changed into caring human beings!

DrTex, your son would likely be best served with cable - I know of few folks that really like the satellite services. Feel free to tell him to drop me a line if he needs local info!

Would it be a good place to live? We are moving from St. George, utah.

It is a small world. I moved to New Braunfels in 2007 from St. George. We love it here, at first I missed Utah (we love to hike and spend time out doors), not being able to camp out in the hills ect but now we would never even think about moving back.

My family and I are also thinking about moving to the N.B. area. We are sick of the cold Minnesota winters. Born and raised in Minnesota and have had enough. I have a couple quick questions, how hot and humid is the average summer day? Any reptile or spider issues? Are there any certain areas that are better for renting a house? Thanks for any input
