Perhaps no activity in Wimberley speaks to the easygoing nature of the town as well as a swim in the spring-fed waters of Cypress Creek at Blue Hole, the centerpiece of a 126-acre community park. A manicured lawn amid the towering bald cypresses creates a tranquil spot for sunbathing, reading, or games. Ropes from the trees invite swimmers to swing out and drop into the cool and clear creek—with water temperatures in the 70s year-round.

North of town, Jacob’s Well, another spring-fed swimming hole, is an alternative to a dip in Blue Hole. The artesian springs that form the limestone-surrounded “well” create the headwaters of Cypress Creek, which winds through downtown Wimberley. A swim here, or a quick wade in Cypress Creek, are ideal ways to cool off when the temperatures climb.
