New Braunfels residents love that the town provides so much to see and do while still maintaining a great culture and small town feel. This weekend is no exception; there is a variety of different “things” happening in and around town. No need to research, a few of the best fun things to do in New Braunfels (and Seguin!) this weekend are described below. Hopefully, this list will make planning a perfect Texas Hill Country weekend a little easier!

Eat Burritos, Save the Animals
Now is the perfect time to eat a burrito and not feel terrible about it afterward! Chipotle and the Humane Society of the New Braunfels Area are pairing up to raise money for the Humane Society this Saturday. All you have to do is order your food, and at the register mention that you are there in support of the HSNBA and 50% of the proceeds will go to them! You have to have lunch anyway, so what’s the holdup?
