If you’re looking for a perfect get away trip that doesn’t break the bank and can be done in a day…then visit Gruene!!!! It’s an absolute must-see and it’s roughly two hours away from Killeen. (pronounced like the color, green) Recently, we made a day trip out of  it with close friends.

 First, we decided to do something fun with the kids, so we stopped in at Natural Bridge Caverns. It’s one of Texas’ natural attractions just outside of New Braunfels. From start to finish, the cavern tour lasted about two hours. The kids absolutely loved exploring the historical cavern system.  When we were finished, we decided Gruene would be a great place to stop in for an early dinner.  

We first made a quick stop at Gruene Hall for a few beers and a sneak peek at some local country music talent. Then we walked on over to eat a very nice and relaxing dinner at The Gristmill River Restaurant and Bar. The food was great and the setting was amazing.
