Red, White, and Bliss

The Fourth of July conjures up both great memories and great expectations: fireworks, sparklers, face paint, and activities that make parents say “they’ll sleep well tonight!” I can only speak for the two or three Fourth of July weekends I’ve experienced, but I know that at the end of each of them, I was exhausted. So what do you do for patriotic patrons who want to savor the weekend for the well-deserved break that it is? These spas have the answer, with star-studded Fourth of July specials.
