Day Trip to Wimberley

Wimberley is a laid back artist culture nestled in the surrounding hills and the beautiful but sadly very dangerous during flash flooding, Blanco River. Weekends are very active with visitors.

Wimberley is a nice day trip. Take 2673 to 306. Right on 306 then left on Purgatory. Right onto 32 and then left (north) on 12. It’s about a 30 minute drive. Incidentally, there is an excellent glass blowing artist on 32 if you keep going and do not turn onto 12.

If you are lucky when you stop for coffee at the cafe in Wimberley you may enjoy a man playing a guitar on the patio. We have seen him there dressed in cowboy garb, complete with hat only once but were told he comes often in morning,

Find Jacobs Well a short distance from Wimberley going up highway 12. Look for a sign on the left. We have enjoyed the hike to Jacobs Well from the park’s parking lot. You might see divers exploring the very deep, crystal clear depths of Jacobs Well,

In the same direction as Jacobs Well you will find another gem: Bella Vista Ranch.  It is home to the First Texas Olive Oil Company. Book a tour!  We have been there at least three times and have thoroughly enjoyed talking with the owner who has had a very eclectic career.
