Wimberley TX — General Information — History — Hill Country TX — 03/28/2010
Wimberley TX was founded in the mid 1800s around its springs, saw and grist mills, and wonderful, rustic and rolling hillsides.
When many people think about classic Hill Country TX living, they think of what Wimberley TX offers. This beautiful community rests on the banks of Cypress Creek and the Blanco River. There are many hiking trails and camping sites that have access to the river.
The outdoor recreational activities are almost limitless, and the community is also home to many artists. Locally made arts and crafts are available at many of the fun shops in downtown Wimberley TX.
I urge you to take a step back in time and experience the many wonders of what Wimberley TX has to offer. Many of the town's original historic buildings still exist today, along with some of the original homesteads, too.
The second largest outdoor market in Texas — and also the state's oldest market — are a part of the town's history and are open from March through December each year.
Shopping is also a real adventure in Wimberley TX, with many Hill Country TX artists featured in shops around the square and plaza downtown. Many restaurants, as well as the famous Wimberley Pie Company are here, too.
Considered a real Texas treasure, don't forget to visit the Blue Hole Regional Park. It's one of Texas' most beloved swimming holes, and is surrounded by 126 acres along Cypress Creek. This is a terrific picnic spot, and spending time here will energize you for even more Hill Country TX outdoor adventures.
