Wimberley, Texas is located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, just about an hour’s scenic drive from either Austin or San Antonio. Set in western Hays County, where the Cypress Creek and the Blanco River meet, locals refer to Wimberley as “a little slice of heaven”, due to the town’s beautiful terrain. Lovers of the outdoors and recreation will have no shortage of opportunities to bask in nature. One of the first towns in Texas to support a “Dark Skies Initiative”, Wimberley is a prime spot to view the night sky. Residents are known to climb the 220 steps up Old Baldy Mountain, especially during the many meteor showers and star-watching parties. With several pristine parks and green spaces to choose from, residents enjoy wildlife-watching, hiking, swimming, camping, and even concerts. Water enthusiasts can bask in the beauty of the ancient Cypress trees along Cypress Creek, play in the natural flow of the Blanco River, or swim at two of Texas’ top-rated locations: the Blue Hole and Jacob’s Well. Known as a haven for writers, artists, musicians, the community is driven by the many local art galleries, shops, and live music and performing arts venues. Shoppers in Central Texas know that everything from antique furniture and vintage wares, to uniquely handmade and one-of-a-kind crafts and merchandise, can be found at the Wimberley Lions Club Market Days. The engaging charms of this small town are not lost in the many celebrations and festivals, including December’s Trail of Lights, the Butterfly Festival, and the 24-Hour Play Festival. Terrain similarities to the Italian countryside allow tourists and locals to enjoy the local breweries, wineries, and distilleries, as they tour the nearby orchards and vineyards. A family-friendly community, this town is served by the Wimberley Independent School District and the Katherine Anne Porter School, a public charter high school. Whether looking for a close-knit neighborhood or a secluded scenic home, Wimberley has it all.
