Located in the bustling 2nd Street District in Downtown Austin, milk + honey is the gorgeous, modern spa of your dreams. If you’re in town for a special event and looking your best is a priority, this is where you want to go. An acclaimed stop for lashes, manicures, pedicures, waxing, gentle/effective facials, and so much more, the spa offers a variety of services and packages. The massages are a treat, thanks to superbly skilled staff, whether you go down the deep tissue, sports, pre-natal, or specialty routes. If you’re in company, the couple's signature is the place to start; a Swedish massage that focuses on relaxation and stress relief…and there is a large open lounge to download with tea and goodies after. With this, you can also upgrade to deep-tissue for just $10. If you can stand the intensity, that is.
Exploring all the best things to do in Austin often leaves a dire need for quality spa time. Live music venues, rooftop bars, and hiking trails burn a lot of energy, after all. A great thing about Austin is the variety of R&R experiences that can be enjoyed. Start with the big spa resorts, where you can check-in and spend the entire weekend basking in outdoor infinity pools, holistic treatments, and nutritious meals. How about the fabulous day spas downtown, where you can pop in for a specific focus via a manicure, pedicure, or caviar facial? And if you’re up for something out of the box, why not try Infrared sauna, compression therapy, and an IV drip for a boost (yes, you can do these all in one session!), and it ain't Texas without rhythmic horse riding. We’ve rounded up the best spas in Austin to help soothe yourselves inside and out.
