About a 45-minute drive from Austin, Wimberley
is a great place for families, artists, and those just looking to take it slow. This charming small town features gorgeous cypress trees, a large river, swimming holes, art galleries, and boutique shopping. It’s one of the most delightful towns in Texas, and the drive is equally enjoyable. When you get there, check out Blue Hole, a forested swimming area complete with rope swings, or drive further south for a hike up Devil’s Backbone – be sure to look up the unsolved mysteries of the area before your trip – where you’ll find beautiful views.
