RV Short Stop: Tasty pastries and outdoor public art in historic New Braunfels, Texas


NaegelinBakery_JulianneGCraneGive me a great cream puff and some public art to appreciate and I’m happy.

Now that it’s RV Snowbird time, more and more RVers will be traveling south along I-35 in Texas.  After getting through Austin, and you’re considering a snack and stretching your legs–head for New Brunsfels.  It is the perfect stopping off point for a yummy pastry and a little taste of public art.

In its historic downtown area there are two irresistible attractions — a series of free outdoor murals and Naegelin’s Bakery, a longtime (the oldest bakery in Texas), local favorite, mouth-watering eatery.
