The Best of Wimberley
Posted on 21 August 2017
If you have never made it to Wimberley, you are missing out on a small part of Heaven. Wimberley is made from bits and pieces of culture, art and generations of memories. Here is a list of some must see places in town.
- The Wimberley Square has shopping, art galleries and restaurants. Shop for anything from clothing to home décor to jewelry and art. Eat on the river or little restaurants tucked into the square. Visit some of the art galleries and watch glass be blown in front of you.
2. Water fun. Wimberley has three main water attractions: Jacob’s Well, The Blue Hole, and The Blanco River. Jacob’s Well has put Wimberley on the social media map after pictures and videos recently went viral. To jump into the well, you have to have a reservation sometimes made months in advance. The Blue Hole is located in the heart of Wimberley and has rope swings and rings to climb on. This swimming facility closes at capacity and reopens when there is enough space. Last, but definitely not least, we have the Blanco River. The scenery has changed after the Memorial Day and Halloween floods but it is a beautiful place to visit and cool off by jumping into the river.
3. Dining with a view is a huge deal breaker for our visitors and the restaurants do an awesome job of adding the "Wimberley touch".
- BEST DINING VIEW and BURGER IN TOWN: Inoz Brew and Chew. They are off Cypress Creek and have a back patio overlooking the creek. Most weekends they have live music and don’t forget to check out the hand carved Cypress trees by the river!
- BEST SALAD: The Leaning Pear is a gourmet restaurant on the Cypress Creek who locally sources their food and changes their menu seasonally. They have the best brick oven pizza and have the best vegan options in town.
- BEST OUTDOOR SEATING: Hays City Store is located about 10 miles from the square, this restaurant has the best outdoor seating with live music, and games for children to play. I would also rank this the most kid friendly restaurant in town.
- Wineries and wine tasting are a big draw to the town. Go on the square and wine taste at multiple places or drive out to Wineries close to town. Go to HGTV’s top 20 most pictreesque wineries in the US at Duchmann Family Winery or keep it close to town at the Wimberley Valley Winery located 10 minutes from the square.
