Since the 1920s, Central Texans have been enjoying the cool clear waters of Cypress Creek, hidden in a small canyon on the edge of Wimberley. Often included on lists of the best swimming holes in Texas, this section of the tree-lined creek is best known for its Norman Rockwell-esque rope swings and family atmosphere. If not for the efforts of local residents, Blue Hole would have gone under a developer’s bulldozer. In 2005, the village of 3,000 raised the $3 million to buy the 126-acre tract as a regional park for the entire state to enjoy. Open Memorial Day through Labor Day.
