Last month our Texas trip took us back to familiar places but we also "discovered" a new favorite place to visit. The little historic district of Gruene (pronounced Green) was a fun place to shop, dine and just spend a leisurely day! It's located within New Braunfels, Texas between
Austin and San Antonio.
The Gruene Mansion Inn was striking with the wrap around porch and beautiful grounds. Had I known about this place ahead of time we would have stayed there.
Oh well, there's always next time!
What a delightful little place to spend the day!
We walked along the tree lined streets and enjoyed the flower displays in front of the historic
gift and antique shops.
We had a lovely lunch at the Gristmill which I highly recommend!
The food is great and in fact it was voted one of the best family dining experiences in the country
and I'd have to agree.
Make sure you order the "Gruene" beans...
they are great!
We love visiting the Texas Hill Country
and were happy to find a new favorite!
