Outdoor Favorites

Travel + Leisure has mentioned that Texas is a great place to see fall foliage and get away for a great autumn vacation. But if the changing leaves of the Texas Hill Country aren’t enough to persuade you, we found a bunch of cool things that are happening in September and October that you don’t want to miss.

If you love animals, the outdoors, and a good time, then the Wings Over Wimberley event is perfect for you! Wings Over Wimberley “is a city-wide cultural event with music, art, food, and fun, celebrating the thousands of free-tailed Mexican bats that call Wimberley home.” This event is a fun mix of nature and culture, where you can learn about the importance of having bats in an ecosystem, and get some delicious food and drinks, too! Wings Over Wimberley is scheduled for October 1 & 2, 2021.

You don’t want to miss the annual Seed Stomp at the LBJ State Park in Stonewall (just an hour northwest of Wimberley). They provide the seeds, you provide the stomp! It’s a fun way for you and your family to partake in some outdoor fun by helping the park reseed their wildflowers. And then you can come back in the spring and watch your handy work (or your footwork) bloom! The Seed Stomp is Sunday, September 19, 2021, from 10 am to 3 pm.
