Are you looking for an adrenaline-pumping adventure? Why not try out the Wimberley Zipline Adventures? This is a fun-filled activity that the whole family can enjoy together.
Slide down the 10 different ziplines that stretch between 150-900 feet long with speed and face your fear of heights with the 100 ft distance between you and the ground. This is one of the most epic things to do in Wimberley if you are looking for a full-blown family adventure.
To add to the thrill, you will get to go on a short hike to get to the ziplines, so you’ll get your dose of exercise for the day too. The zipline experience can last up to 2 hours and it will, without a doubt, be an experience that you and your family will be talking about for weeks to come.
So, slide and glide your way into an awesome weekend in Wimberley!
Wimberley Valley Museum
Travel back in time and learn all about Wimberley’s history at the Wimberley Valley Museum. This is one of the best things to do in Wimberley for those who are looking for a more educational outing on the weekend.
This is also a family-friendly activity so you can bring your kids along for an experience that they can enjoy and learn from. The museum is picture-based and uses large text and images to tell the story of how the early settlers first came into the town.
Be sure to plan your expedition to the museum accordingly since they are only open on the first Friday and Saturday of every month. The greatest part is that admission to the museum is free which makes the experience both fun and affordable.
Why settle for anything less than an epic day of learning about the first Wimberley settlers?
Wimberley Valley Winery
This one is for the adults who are looking for a peaceful weekend of socializing and wine-tasting. Wimberley Valley Winery is a great place to unwind with a glass of wine in the winery’s oak grove or old stone-walled castles.
If you plan your trip accordingly you are also in for a pleasant surprise. On weekends, the winery brings its own vintage double-decker bus that you can order your favorite red or white wines from.
Naturally, this isn’t the best activity to bring children along on, so rather invite your friends and family members who are over the age of 21 and enjoy the vintage wine tasting experience with the people who are close to you.
Wine, laughter, and great conversations. This is certainly one of the best things to do in Wimberley on the weekends for adults.

This little piece of paradise made our list of the best things to do in Wimberley due to the drop-dead gorgeous scenery and natural, turquoise pools that look as if they come straight out of a fairytale.
This is also a great activity for the whole family to enjoy together. Bring a book and relax next to the pool while your children splash around in the cool waters or join in on the fun to have a splashing adventure yourself.

Cliff diving? Yes please! Jacob’s Well is another one of the epic things to do in Wimberley on a hot summer day. The crystal clear pool is a great way to cool down in the mid-summer heat, but the adventure gets more exciting than that.
As a matter of fact, Jacob’s Well offers far more than a mild swimming experience. You can climb your way to the top of a cliff where you can practice your dives, front flips, and backflips while you splash into the water from a height.
The area also has a variety of hiking trails for you to test your fitness levels throughout the year. The cliff diving experience is considered to be slightly dangerous so it is not advisable for younger children.
Also, be sure to plan your trip in advance since you will need to make an online booking prior to arriving at the well. Snorkeling in Jacob’s Well is also an activity that many visitors enjoy and the beach-like sandy patch is a great place to unwind or catch a tan in the sunlight.
