This weekend I made my way 40 miles south of Austin to little ol' Gruene, Texas. For those unaware, Gruene is located just outside of New Braunfels and boasts the oldest dancehall in Texas, Gruene Hall. If you've never been here, you have been seriously missing out and need to go stat!
I love Gruene. My uncle lives there (right on the river) and we would go visit him every summer and spring break we could. I also lived right outside of Gruene for a year while attending Texas State, and I still visit as much as possible. There's something so special about it whether it is filled to the brim with tourists on the weekend or looking like a ghost town on a weekday.
I met some of my family down there, including my mom and little sister, to spend the day browsing market days, sipping wine-a-ritas at The Grapevine, eating frog dip at Adobe Verde, and finishing up the day watching some live music at the hall. It was the perfect little getaway that I needed!//
