Where is Wimberley, TX?
Tucked between the Blanco River and Cypress Creek, Wimberley resides in the Texas Hill Country less than 40 miles from Austin and around 60 miles from San Antonio. Though no gold was found when the Spaniards first set foot in this area, the Europeans soon came to understand what the native people valued so much: A striking landscape with rugged hillsides and fresh, spring-fed waters.
Today, the town of Wimberley honors its heritage and natural landscape while offering a rich sense of culture—with a little Western kick to spice things up.
Things to Do in Wimberley, TX
Use your Wimberley vacation rental as a launch pad for all kinds of Texas adventures! Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the town's lovingly-maintained natural areas. Lather up the sunscreen and visit Blue Hole, often voted one of Texas's top 10 swimming holes. Enjoy a quiet and gentle hike along the Cypress Creek Nature Trail, or up the steps of Prayer Mountain for panoramic views of the Wimberley Valley. Got a thrill-seeking streak? The Wimberley Zipline is the longest and highest zipline in Texas - don't miss it!
Perhaps history is more your thing. Take a drive down River Road for a stop at Pioneer Town, a recreation of an Old West town. Visit the 7A Ranch to view its collection of bronze sculptures in the Remington Museum (by appointment only) or take a dip in the Blanco River. Visit Jack Glover's Cowboy Museum, or take the drive up Devil's Backbone to visit Fischer Hall and the nine pin bowling alley. Stop for a bite to eat at the Texas Tavern or The Devil's Backbone Tavern.
Indulge your fine tastes with a trip to one of the nearby wineries, or schedule a tee time at Quicksand Golf Course (with a pit stop at the clubhouse for a sandwich, of course!). Take in a little culture via art galleries like Gallery on the Square and theatre troupes like the Wimberley Players.
Feel like enjoying the local night life? Go to a concert at the Wimberley Bluegrass Jam, or a poetry reading at Maui Wowi. Summertime means movies at the outdoor theater, so bring your lawn chairs and snacks!
