Wimberley — nested in the Hill Country — should have a good view of the eclipse and plenty of other attractions for a long weekend away from D-FW.

Here's a guide from our Axios San Antonio colleagues on what to do...


Blue Hole Regional Park: Even when swimming is closed, this park is worth a visit for a good view and a meandering walk along forested trails.

Pedernales Falls State Park: This park is only a 45-minute drive from downtown Wimberley, and boasts a plethora of trails and a photo-worthy main falls area.


Creekside Vintage: This quaint store in Wimberley Square is full of mid-century modern furniture and decor, with knickknacks you won't find anywhere else.

Ceremony Botanical Studio: Another great downtown shop where you can grab plants, pots and more goods.


Longleaf Craft Kitchen and Bar: This cozy restaurant and bar feel like a trip to grandma's country ranch where you know you're getting high-quality comfort food.

Roughhouse Brewing: Less than 10 miles outside town is this sprawling craft brewery and restaurant that's the perfect hangout spot in good weather.
