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!
Below are some of our favorite spots in Austin to get an ice cold, creamy milkshake. Maybe we'll see you there?
