Aspen and Vail are the cities that come to mind most often when considering Colorado ski destinations. However, Dortha Vela of All About Travel told me these Colorado cities “are two of the most expensive ski destinations.” Plus, it turns out they’re not even that popular when compared to the capital city of Denver — perhaps for that very reason. Denver takes first place in our list of the most popular cities to visit in winter. And there’s plenty to do there besides ski, all at a reasonable cost. What to do: Aside from the close to 30 ski resorts in the city alone, you can also visit the famous Red Rocks Park and amphitheater for breathtaking views and great music, or the nearby Rocky Mountains State Park. How to save: Flights to Denver become more expensive the closer it gets to ski season, so if you plan on booking a trip to the snowy city, locking in a flight now will ensure you save hundreds of dollars. Colorado’s tourism website also has a section dedicated to aggregating deals on travel and attractions in the city.
As a massage therapist for over 20 years I always love hearing the spa trends for the year. I am hopeful that more people will learn the health benefits of massage and not see it as a luxury item. All people from all walks of life benefit from massage.
Let’s explore some of the different spa trends for 2012:
1. Feet Focus – Reflexology – Foot Massage
On the rise are multi-treatments focused on the feet. Specific work on the foot due to high-heel pain.
Amusement Park Spas, Water Park Spas, Tropical Garden Spas and spas with a full range of Classical music and Jazz concerts. Many of the spa-parks are geared towards children and their parents. These are some of the spa experiences trending for 2012.
