Wimberley is located north of San Antonio and west of San Marcos toward Blanco on Hwy 12 near Canyon Lake.
In Hays County, Wimberley is part of the Austin-San Marcos, Texas metro area.
The Blanco River and Cypress Creek are the local streams. 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 benches.
The climate and setting make the community a health center and resort town. Its location near Austin and San Marcos makes it attractive to commuters. Tourism is a major industry in the area. A "Market Days" flea market is held on the first Saturday of each month from April through December. A rodeo lasting several days is held to celebrate the Fourth of July each year. Just outside Wimberley is the incorporated development of Woodcreek, with an eighteen-hole championship golf course.
In 1990 the population of Wimberley was 2,403.
