Rest and Relaxation in Liberty County
Maybe your kids just started back to school and you finally have some “me” time. Perhaps work (or just life in general) has you stressed. Maybe you just need a break from the daily grind. Whatever your reason, August 15th is National Relaxation Day, and Liberty County has a lot to offer those who are looking to unwind for a while.
To help you make the best of it, here are some ways you can celebrate the holiday. Pick something and enjoy!
1. Get pampered!
Molly Maxine is the perfect place to get a makeover and treat yourself to some wonderful skincare and makeup products. You can stay there and let them help you test and pick out some new favorites, or they can suggest some products for you to take home if you’d rather enjoy them on your couch in your pajamas. If you’re looking for a head-to-toe spa experience, you can visit Hinesville Day Spa. They offer a variety of services to help you destress and unwind, including different massages, hair services, fitness classes, yoga instruction, facials, skin care services, chiropractic treatments and much more.
2. Get creative!
While you’re downtown visiting Molly Maxine, you can head over to the Hinesville Area Arts Council building. They have a beautiful gallery which is always featuring a local artist, but they also offer art classes for all ages and skill levels. Choose a class that sounds interesting to you, and take a bit of time out of your busy routine to just relax and create something beautiful for your home or office. When you’re finished, you can put it somewhere you spend time each day and you’ll have a happy reminder of that fun day you spent downtown. If you’d prefer to relax at home, you can have one of the instructors host a class at your house instead!
3. Have a stay-cation!
Whether you’re visiting from out of town or you’re a local wanting a quick getaway, booking a room at a local hotel such as the La Quinta or a bed and breakfast like Dunham Farms is a great way to relax for an evening. You can go out on the town, then sleep comfortably knowing you don’t have to worry about doing any chores or preparing anything for the next day. If you’re too tired to go out, just stay in and relax. Since you aren’t home, no one will drop by to interrupt your relaxation.
4. Engage in some friendly competition!
Cherokee Rose Country Club has a golf course that is beautiful all year, and it offers the perfect place to relax and just enjoy being outside. Golf is the perfect blend of physical activity and relaxation, offering you an outdoor sport that won’t leave you exhausted when you’re done. If you’d prefer to do something indoors, you can head over to Doodles for a game of pool or poker. Pair that with a refreshing cocktail like the ones you’ll see Erica Anderson, co-owner of Doodles, make on Southern Cooks this Friday, and you’re sure to relax and enjoy yourself.
5. Grab a bite to eat!
Sometimes all you need to relax a bit is to know that you don’t have to cook or wash dishes. Go out and enjoy one of the many amazing restaurants we have in Liberty County. You can’t go wrong with any of them, but if you’re looking for a place that will also come with a relaxing view, we recommend the Sunbury Crab Company. You can eat some phenomenal local seafood and enjoy the spectacular view of the Sunbury Harbor at the same time. Just imagining that view is enough to make you smile.
The possibilities are endless, but this list should definitely get you started on your journey to unwind. For more options and information, you can always visit our website. We have tons of information there to help you get out and #exploreliberty!
