Fun things to do in Wimberley.
The Corral Theatre – It’s a summertime thing. Much like the drive-ins of old but this one you walk into with your lawn chair and cooler. One of my favorite Wimberley pastimes. Sit out under the stars and watch a first run movie. Showtime is at dusk but get there early for a good seat. Steel metal rockers are provided or bring your favorite lawn chair. 512-847-5994. located off RR 3237 on Flite Acres
The Blue Hole – Great place to bring the family for a cool dip in Cypress Creek. Swing off the Cypress trees that line the banks of this scenic creek, Great place for a picnic. Located off Old Kyle Rd.
Winter-Mills Hike and Bike Trail – So now you have gorged yourself on fine foods and craft beers and it is time to get some fresh air and exercise. One of the nicest things that has happened to Wimberley is the hike and bike trail located off Winter Mills parkway. Try the location where RR 3237 meet the winter Mills PKWY and head off into the woods. And definitely take the smaller paths that lead off the main paths…you will find some beautiful settings.

Turn the radio on – We are blessed with some of the finest music in America. Wimberley’s new radio station is hard to pick-up unless you are in town or on-line…but it is so much fun to listen to with every DJ bringing something different. Wimberley Valley Radio can be found on the dial at 94.1. Also try KNBT 92.1 FM for Americana at it’s best featuring local artists (New Braunfels-based station). You will hear lots of local Americana based musicians.
