The pandemic is coming to an end and if you’re feeling like us, you’re ready to get out of the house. Whether it’s for a date, running errands or a day out with friends, here are some places that you want to visit.
Augusta Candle Co. would be a perfect activity for a small group outing. You and a few friends can pour your own scented candles. There are more than 100 pure fragrance oils. The candles are made with all-natural soy wax, and are long-lasting. This is an experience that is specifically tailored to you. If you’re not into candles they also have body products, waxes and sprays that you can customize to your liking.
Another stop is Artsy Me. This is another great option for friends or if you want to show your creative side on a date. This ceramic and art studio allows you to be the artist. No appointments needed for ceramic painting or glass fusion. Go in anytime and paint pottery or plan a party.
If feeling luxurious is more of your thing, you can certainly put Sol Himalayan Spa on your “must try'' list. All of the day’s stress quickly disappears in this tranquil salt cave helping to ease any symptoms of anxiety, depression and fatigue. Close your eyes and listen quietly to the soft music and the flow of the water feature that helps draw out the 84 trace minerals and elements from the Himalayan Salt Rock to richly saturate the air. These are the same 84 trace minerals and elements found in the human body, 74 of these are believed to be essential for a healthy diet. They provide other services such as massages and facials to make you look and feel your best.
If none of those can get you out the house, then Summerville Scoops might do the trick. They are tucked neatly away in the Daniel Village Shopping Center. They change their ten different flavors almost every day. As soon as a flavor runs out, they replace it with something brand new so you’ll always get a new experience while you’re there. This also means you can’t dilly dally when they have your favorite flavor…so hurry and give them a try. They can't wait for you to come try a scoop or two!
