This month only: sample every luxury in the country’s 1st spa town
By January, after all the holiday hustle and bustle, you may be in need of a little “me” time.
Good thing it’s also the best time to visit Berkeley Springs, the nation’s first spa town.
The town celebrates Spa and Wellness month with a January Spa Feast: a sampler of all sorts of deals, discounts, packages and events.
Get a lot of a little pampering!
You won’t believe all the pampering you can get on a budget this month! Many of the local spa deals give you mini-sessions of several luxuries all for one reduced rate. That way, you get to try a little of everything.
What can you try? Think the whole royal treatment: start with spa essentials like massages, manicures, paraffin dips, facials and more, then add indulgent extras like champagne, gourmet meals, elegant accommodations and more.
And if you sink into blissful daydreaming during your massage, you can always win more soothing spa services at Berkeley Springs State Park.
Or just book more time to savor it longer!
Once you’re refreshed and rejuvenated, hit the town!
The vintage Star Theatre and Berkeley Springs Books are stops on your Spa Feast, too. Bring your spa receipts to earn some special treats! Pop into the gallery show for bellydancing and tea at the Ice House, or enjoy live music at the Berkeley Springs Brewing Company Pub.
Stop in for special events! Learn the history of spas and bathing in town at the The Museum of Berkeley Springs with a lecture and tour, or indulge in the annual West Virginia winemaker’s silver service dinner, featuring Fisher Ridge wines.
No matter when you’re in town, don’t forget to visit Berkeley Springs State Park for a dip in the 200-year-old Roman baths, or contemporary main bathhouse. And take a selfie with George Washington’s bathtub!
