NATURAL WONDERS AND THINGS TO DO
The geographic center and the aesthetic heart of the Wimberley Valley is located at the confluence of Cypress Creek and the Blanco River. In addition to the bald cypress and pecan trees that line the riverbanks, cedar, oak and grasses grow in shallow, clay loams on the area slopes and beaches. The natural beauty of the softly winding Blanco River, shaded Cypress Creek and the stunning views of Lone Man Creek call to artists, retired folks and anyone seeking escape from city life.

The Texas Hill Country is unique and special, and the Wimberley Valley is nestled right in the heart of it all. Located in the central flyway for migrating birds and sitting atop the Edwards Plateau, where a huge variety of natural fauna can be found, it’s a perfect place for anyone who loves nature.

In the spring, a symphony of Texas wildflowers turns the hillsides and roadsides into a riot of colors, and Wimberley is right in the heart of the most scenic wildflower locations in the state.
