Waelder is a charming small city situated in the heart of Gonzales County, Texas. It is just over an hour from Austin, the state capital, and San Antonio. Both cities are bursting with activities and are conveniently located, making them ideal for day trips. Waelder is also just an hour and a half from Canyon Lake, frequently referred to as the ‘Jewel of Texas Hill Country’ and a hub of water sports and recreation. River rafting and tubing, waterskiing and jetskiing, scuba and snorkeling, swimming, and boating are but a handful of the fun pastimes to be tried here. In addition, the lake is surrounded by greenery with no fewer than eight parks offering hiking trails, picnic areas, and bank fishing.
