About Wimberley, Texas

Wimberley was a trading post settlement in 1848. Though the town has moved on since then, there are still some of the old houses which you can go take a look at during your stay.

Though it suffered some damage in the 2015 flood, Wimberley is coming back fighting and is a great place to spend a relaxing week-long vacation.

Right in the heart of Texas Hill Country, Wimberley sits right on the confluence of Cypress Creek and the Blanco River – making it a great spot for a picnic or some watersports.

Even though it may seem like a quiet traditional town, the community-driven atmosphere is sure to make you feel welcome anywhere in Wimberley. Check out the town's event calendar before you go – there might be a carnival or fair on during your stay.

What to do

The best thing to do in Wimberley is to enjoy the scenery – lush green forests, bright blue lakes and pools. What could be better for your next getaway?

Head up to Jacob's Well Natural Area in the Hays County Parks. You'll have a great time exploring, and if you go between May and October (and pay a small fee), you'll be able to swim in the natural spring!

Hike around the Blue Hole Regional Park and be amazed at how tall the cypress trees are! There's nothing quite like it in the rest of Wimberley!

If you're looking for adrenaline, take a zipline tour of the forest – it's fantastic! Though not to be tried if you're scared of heights!

For a little bit of culture, head to the Corral Theatre or Jack Glover's Cowboy Museum – you'll get a great feel of the Ol' West!
