Best Milkshakes in Austin


We have a summer tradition of going somewhere for a cold treat on the last day of school. It can be an ice cream cone, shaved ice, a limeade or a root bear float from Sonic. But this year, we're going to knock off an item on the Summer Fun Checklist by drinking a milkshake on the last day of school to celebrate the beginning of summer vacation!
