Self-care doesn’t always take top priority, especially during busy and stressful times like the holidays. After you’re done giving and getting this Christmas, why not escape for a full refresh in Bastrop where the only expectation is to have a great time with your bestie, love match, or the whole crew. Take better care of yourself, catch up with those close to you, and finally take that vacation you’ve been putting off since COVID-19 hit. Let you first move in 2022 be all about you.

Spa Away the Day

Another soothing option is Cherry Blossoms Spa. You can completely relax in this tranquil place while they massage and polish away 2021. Treatments include facials, massages, waxing, lash and brow tinting, chemical peels, eye treatments, and more.

Brimming with that famous Bastrop hospitality, the personable staff at Turquoise Salon and Spa will help you get that sparkle back. Head here for a head-to-toe refresh from a full menu of services including massage, hair, waxing, airbrush tanning, lashes, and microblading.

Soak Up Nature

Sometimes the best way to renew is to unplug and retreat to the peace you can find only in nature. Hike into total seclusion at Bastrop State Park in the heart of the Lost Pines. Get a breath of fresh, piney air and wander along their scenic trails.

Mckinney Roughs Park is rich with beautiful sites along 18 miles of multi-use trails in the Lost Pines open to hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrian riders. Kayaking and river rafting are also an option, as is the longest dual zip line in Texas – Zip Lost Pines. In both parks, you’ll also find cabins, campsites and more so you can get away for a one-with-nature retreat.

Moonshine Flight

Bring your bestie on a moonshine flight at Copper Shot Distillery. Always excited to try something new, this small family-owned shop crafts its own original liquors on-site and in small batches. Try flavors like apple pie or watermelon, sip a smooth bourbon or try their handmade vodka. Cheers to a new you!

Golf With Friends

Golf buddies unite! Bastrop has several beautiful courses to get a good swing on. Wolfdancer Club is especially scenic at Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa. This world-class course will take you through rolling prairies, heavily wooded ridgelines, and river valleys lined with pecan trees. They also have a full-scale practice facility with a 13-acre driving range, a short game area, two chipping greens, and bunkers.
