For outdoor enthusiasts, hike up nearby Mount Baldy, or make the drive to Enchanted Rock, hiking to the top enjoying views as you go. Rent a kayak or canoe for white water rafting on the Guadalupe River, or hop in a tube at other spots for a relaxing float. Swim in Wimberley's famous natural swimming holes, Blue Hole and Jacob's Well, or go boating on nearby Canyon Lake, or Austin's Town Lake. Stop in Austin to rent bikes; there's much to explore on two wheels.
Golfers have a large number of beautiful hill country courses available. Check out Vaaler Creek in Blanco, Fazio Canyons in Austin, Lady Bird in Fredericksburg, La Cantera in San Antonio, or one of the many other courses out our way. Tennis players may enjoy the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch in nearby New Braunfels.
Wine lovers can explore many vineyards and wineries along the Texas Wine Route, beginning in Wimberley. There are a variety of other farms and tasting rooms to explore including those producing olive oil, whiskey, and rum. There's a family chocolatier sharing products from their Venezuelan cocoa plantation.
Dining options in Wimberley vary from established cafés and restaurants, to food trucks and newer trendy restaurants. Head to Austin for the many great cuisine options, or San Antonio for authentic TexMex.
For art enthusiasts, Wimberley is home to some lovely galleries. Many offer workshops and classes for those inspired to create some art of their own. Silo Glass is a lovely shop to visit, and offers glass fusing classes that allow even beginners to create something wonderful. Austin and San Antonio have a wide range of fantastic galleries. Art museums, like the Blanton in Austin or the McNay in San Antonio, are also well worth an art-lover's time.
Music lovers and musicians alike come to hill country, where live music is available somewhere in town nightly. Gruene Hall, Texas's oldest dance hall, has a great slate of musicians, Austin's legendary 6th Street is always hopping, or explore some of the smaller venues where you'll hear everything from blues to country to jazz to rock.
Want to relax? Sit on the front porch and welcome the visiting deer, hummingbirds, migrating flocks of robins (when you hear hundreds of robins singing at once, it's the most amazing chorus!), and the occasional fox.
