Aim for the mountain tops on links where the sun shines more than 300 days a year. (And that’s a promise.) Or go rogue and visit the largest municipal park in the US, the South Mountain Preserve, and hike, horseback ride or mountain bike. You’ve got 17,000 acres of wilderness to make your own, and the Arizona Grand Resort is right next door where every Friday night on the lobby patio it’s tortillas and tequila tasting night.
Relax at this upscale spa at The Boulders, located in Carefree, AZ. Get a turquoise clay wrap, an avocado citrus scrub, hot stone message, back wax or chakra balancing. The Astoria Waldorf Spa is the perfect combination of traditional and outré, upscale and low-key, active and relaxing.
Inside Santa Fe’s Eldorado Hotel, Nidah Spa helps guests rejuvenate with treatments, using natural, local ingredients like stones, plants and herbs. A chocolate peppermint sugar scrub, a turquoise-gemstone massage and a chile-honey body wrap are just some of the many treatments guests can expect when checking into this spa.
