Exploring Texas and all of its majestic bodies of water is probably all you want to do this summer - it's all anyone wants to do this summer! Finding somewhere new to go in the bigger cities can be tough, they're all pretty well known by now. It's the smaller Texas towns that hide the best gems that you may have not heard about as much. Wimberley, Texas is home to Blue Hole Regional Park, with water as blue as you've ever seen and it has plenty to explore.
This 126-acre park is perfect for exploring nature trails, picnics, and of course, swimming. As recent as 2005, the City of Wimberley saved Blue Hole from residential development, a task that was not easy to accomplish. Wimberley residents persevered and are the reason we have Blue Hole to swim into this day! Its beauty is unreal and we're so lucky to be able to experience it each and every day.
During the summer season, reservations are required to visit the swimming area of the park. There are two-time slots, one from 9 AM - 1 PM and another from 2 PM - 6 PM. Both are perfect times to swim and tan, just depending on if you're an early bird or not. Having to make a reservation is extra nice because you know it'll never get too crowded!
Admission is only $10 for adults, though they have plenty of discounts that you may qualify for. If you'd like to stray away from the water for a bit and explore the rest of the park, that's perfectly fine. No extra fees need to be paid, other than for admission to swim at Blue Hole. Get ready for an awesome day out with your friends or family! Blue Hole Regional Park will be the height of your summer vacation.
Blue Hole resides in the beautiful town of Wimberley, Texas, which also has tons of other exciting activities to partake in while you're in town. They have Jacob's Well, another incredible sparkling blue water hole with an insanely deep cavern that visitors love to dive into.
