Wimberley is blessed with a location on the banks of insert the Cypress Creek and the Blanco River surrounded by the Texas Hill Country. As a result, there are great outdoor activities nearby.
Wimberley is full of unique shops that offer traditional and not-so-traditional art and wares. Although the primary shopping areas are clustered around the “Square”, there are also shops sprinkled throughout other areas. The first Saturday of each month, March through December, Market Days draws visitors from around the state.
Many rural towns had outdoor movie theatres years ago. Wimberley still has one. The Corral Theatre features first run movies every Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from Memorial Day through Labor Day. You can even bring your own chair. Call (512) 847-2513 or visit www.corraltheatre.com for shows and times. If your taste runs to live theatre, try the EmilyAnn Theatre or the Wimberley Players for year-round theatrical events.
For those who just like to walk and see the sites, Wimberley is full of beautiful views and rich history. A pause at the bridge over Cypress Creek and — for the more vigorous — a hike up the steps to the top of Old Baldy, are ways to appreciate nature and beautiful scenic vistas while in Wimberley. Take a drive from Blanco to Wimberley and take in the views of Devil’s Backbone. Bootiful Wimberley has 50 unique artist painted boots around Wimberley, grab a brochure for a map to seek them out.
Wimberley offers many unique art galleries, including Wimberley Glass Works, with entertaining glass blowing demonstrations six days a week. If golf is your game, enjoy an afternoon of golf at the 18-Hole Quicksand at Woodcreek Golf Course. If you prefer tennis, contact The Wimberley Community Tennis Association. Wimberley is also home to the Wimberley Valley Winery, Wimberley Brewing Company, Middleton Brewing, Driftwood Winery, and the Cypress Creek Reserve which is a rum distillery. Each of these places offers tastings and tours.
