hometown, as well as Austinites who want to

Named by Travel Holiday magazine as one
of “America’s Ten Best Small Towns,”
Wimberley enjoys a special and magical
place in the hearts of its residents.
Considered by many to be a kind of
mecca for area artisans who want to leave
the bright lights of the big city behind,
Wimberley combines old-style Texas
hospitality with an eclectic sense of style
Located off FM 12 north of San Marcos
amid the green meadows of the Texas
Hill Country, Wimberley is a 50-minute
commute from downtown Austin.
Towering cypress trees line the Blanco
River and Cypress Creek, and residents
can be counted on to find time for a dip
into cool shady swimming holes such as
Blue Hole. Wildlife in the area is abundant
as well, with white-tailed deer, rabbits, and
even that Texas icon, the armadillo.
Wimberley is also known for its
down home approach to events and
entertainment, and is also a next-door
neighbor to the Devil’s Backbone Tavern, a
classic Texas honky-tonk. Market Days
in Wimberley is the second largest event
of its kind in Texas and is held the first
Saturday of the month from April to
December with more than 450 booths.
Another popular attraction is the Corral
Theatre, a “walk-in” outdoor movie
theatre. You literally park your car, walk
in, and sit down in lawn chairs to enjoy
the show, all under the big open night sky.
Wimberley incorporated itself as a town
in 2000, but it was only the central part of
the town. There’s a huge area that’s not
incorporated (called Wimberley Valley),
and the whole area attracts many artisans, artists and musicians. Wimberley
has also experienced a lot of growth
recently, which gives great variety to the
housing market – prices generally start in
the low $100s and go up to more than $1
