If you're looking for some beautiful, extremely lifelike painting of Texas scenery (for example, bluebonnets, Gulf beaches, Hill Country), then you can find it at Prellop Fine Art & Framing.
I have been staying at Surfside Condominiums since I was a small child, and I love it. The condos are clean, spacious, and set around a center courtyard with a heated pool. The beach is just a short walk across the street. I highly recommend these condos.
I love the Apex Cinema. This is one of the best movie theaters that I've been to. The seats are comfortable, the screens are huge. I highly recommend this theater.
I went into Antiques On Salem Street for the first time last week. I was impressed by all of the great items that they had. I recommend this store and will definitely be visiting it more often myself.
This is some of the best "fast food" Chinese food that I've ever had. The orange chicken is spectacular. And the staff at China A GoGo are extremely nice. Whenever we'd go in and wait for our food, they'd give us free drinks and snacks. I highly recommend China A GoGo.
My girlfriend and I went to see "O" - Cirque du Soleil, and we loved it. It was absolutely one of the most amazing shows that I have ever seen. If you get a chance to see it, go. I highly recommend "O".
Pookie Janes is a great store to go and visit when you're in Gruene. Pookie Janes has great clothes, accessories, and gifts. Definitely go to Pookie Janes to find some unique items.
If you are interested in finding anything and everything Texas-related, then be sure to visit Lone Star Country Goods when you're in Gruene. You can find nick-knacks, dinner settings, gifts--all Texas-inspired. I highly recommend this store.
The Gruene Outfitters provides sporting goods, t-shirts, shoes, among other things. If you're looking for some cute t-shirts that have Texas-related pictures or sayings, then this is a great place to find that.
The Gruene General Store is my all-time favorite Gruene shop. I love the "old-timey-ness" of the store and what it sells. I especially like it around the holidays when they sell Christmas tree ornaments, which are really unique. If you're in Gruene, definitely visit this store.
