We recently enjoyed a perfect Saturday in Wimberley, TX.
Wimberley is a short hour-drive away from Austin, located in the midst of Hill Country. Whether you’re with friends, family, your significant other or even by yourself, there is so much to discover in this small Texas town.
Here is what we recommend you check out when you head out to Wimberley. You’ll have a hard time fitting it all into one day – we couldn’t – but we’d like to see you try!
Morning coffee at Sip! on the Square.
- Broken Arrow Rock Shop, home to a sizable collection of unique rocks and gems.
- The “Boot Whisperer” at The Wild West Store.
- A vast collection of shops to browse and enjoy, featuring antiques, home decor, gifts, clothing, toys, artwork and much more.
- Wimberley Glassworks, possibly the most jaw-dropping demonstration of artistry we’ve ever seen. You’ve gotta see this to believe it.
- The Leaning Pear for a delicious lunch of one of a kind soups, salads and sandwiches. This spot’s Yelp reviews are raving, and we can confirm that it’s nearly impossible to pick off the menu when every dish looks fantastic.
- Wimberley Zipline Adventures.
- A cure for your sweet tooth at Sugar Shack.
We talk about all of these Wimberley highlights in our 11-minute podcast episode. If you’re dying to know about the “Boot Whisperer,” take the time to listen in! (Just hit the Play button on our podcast player at the top of this article.)
One of the Wimberley wonders we can’t stop talking about is our experience at Wimberley Glassworks. To whet your appetite, here is a short video about owner Tim DeJong and his amazing talent.
We encourage you to get out to Wimberley and experience it for yourself! Who would’ve known that such a tiny place could feature so much. Guess that’s Texas for ya!
