Between work, school, family, pets and whatever other obligations we have, we all need to work in some quality down time to take care of ourselves every now and then. That oh-so-precious “me time” can come in many forms, but if you want to pamper yourself while rejuvenating your body and mind, consider heading to your local spa.
Often when the word “spa” is mentioned, people think of deluxe fantasy getaways in remote places that only spoiled celebrities can enjoy on a regular basis, but there are a handful of great, local options for us working folk who can’t always live the charmed life. Check out one of these spas right here on the peninsula for a dose of relaxation close to home.
