There’s been a lot of buzz about “fish pedicures” recently, the trendy beauty practice where you stick your feet in a tub of tiny carp and let them nibble off your old, dead skin. I know, right? It sounds super fun for you AND the fish. Unfortunately, they’re banned in Texas.
Unless, that is, you go to Pedernales Falls State Park. Then, you can get one for free.
Just plop yourself down on a rock down by the swimming hole, stick your feet in, and wait for the fish.
See? Fish pedicure. Although, my daughter was pretty much a weenie about it.
Ok, maybe you have to do your own polish.
But a trip to Pedernales Falls State Park also offers excellent fitness options.
And stair climbing.
And did I mention stair-climbing?
After the exciting fish pedicure and workout, you can also enjoy the natural beauty of the park. The water isn’t running high, right now, but the falls themselves are still pretty, and there’s plenty of opportunities for swimming and floating. On our summer checklist of “visit as many state parks as we can, this one gets a “visit again” rating — although we will wait until it’s not 100 degrees in the shade because everything work seeing is down at least 5 flights of stairs.
