Hi,

Does anyone know anything about Wimberley? I read an article about it a few weeks ago in the NYTimes and it was described as a little Sante Fe.
My bf and I are moving to the area and although we thought we wanted to live in Austin, we are considering areas outside of town. Neither one of us needs to commute to Austin although we do want access for restaurants, shopping, etc...
Any input on Wimberley? Faith

Wimberley has a lot of services for such a small population. I suggest you take a drive down there on the first weekend of the month. Although attendance at the Market Days is not your primary goal, among other things, you will have fun and see how much traffic is generated on those days!

I went to Wimberley a couple of months ago to check it out because I am also relocating to the Austin area. That is the cutest town I've EVER been in. Their little town square is adorable and I went the weekend before their Market Days..so I missed it. I've heard great stuff about it though. It's very small and you would probably have to drive into San Marcos for major shopping, but I fell in love with it.

Wimberly is an absolutely wonderful town! It is the definition of a "Hill Country Town" in my opinion. The shops are great and the whole place is absolutely beautiful. I like to drive out there every now and then just to get out of the city and enjoy the slow-pace.

As a cyclist I love making monthly rides to Wimberly. It is such a fun town. Lots to do and friendly people. I have my eye on a nice lot so hopefully it will work out.

Ooooh, some great posts here. I also have my eye on a property in Wimberley and am glad to see its getting such reviews. I'm in my 30s and am hoping its not a sleepy retirement community. I'm moving up from Boca Raton, FL - retirement capital - and I'm hoping to find some young blood!!!

I would agree with all the above, but would add:
You really cannot commute from there to Austin, that would be awful
and that 99.99999% of the water and rivers are PRIVATE. Unless you know someone,
you will not get in, save for Blue Hole, for a fee.

Might be timely to add that now, the Blue Hole has been taken over, they have banned jumping/swinging from the big old cypress trees, (that kids had done for generations). We loved to
go just to watch those kids, but now they can only swing. What has happened to "use at you're own risk"? Lots a lawyers, not much freedom left methinks.

Part of the reason I'm NOT happy with all the new growth around here.
