Visitors are entranced by cool, shady pools beneath towering cypress trees, frothy cascades on Blanco River and sparkling Cypress Creek, green meadows and majestic hills; abundant white-tailed deer. Recreational communities, bed and breakfasts, vacation resorts and youth camps dot area. Climbing, hiking, swimming, golf, tennis, arts and crafts, and camping are popular activities. Many artists and authors make their homes here. Market Days, second largest in Texas, are held the first Saturday of the month April through December. Includes arts and crafts with more than 450 booths on display, sponsored by the Lions Club. At Lions Field on RR 2325.

"One Hour Southwest of Austin and Northeast of San Antonio great small towns run thick as bluebonnets in Texas. But we like Wimberley because it’s a great base for exploring the Texas Hill Country, with its birds and wildflowers and cypress-lined rivers. Wimberley has all the things that make Texas towns so appealing – the shady Town Square, the old swimming hole. But proximity to Austin also makes it a laid-back artists’ town, and a couple of dozen galleries and studios showcase the works of resident painters, sculptors, and photographers. You can also find good deals on antiques and crafts on Wimberley’s Market Day, every Saturday (only 1st Saturday of the month) between April and December. Or take a scenic drive along the Devil’s Backbone itself, a high razorback ridge offering great views of this wild Western country. If you’re lucky, you might be here in mid-October, when tens of thousands of migrating Monarch butterflies come to town. Wimberley doesn’t roll up the sidewalks at night: Check out the 54-year-old Corral Theater, a ‘walk-in’, not ‘drive-in’, theater where the whole town assembles on sweet summer nights for movies under the stars, or the Devil’s Backbone Tavern, a classic Texas honky-tonk."
