LA QUINTA RESORT & SPA
Palm Springs, California
Tucked against sunburned views of the Santa Rosa Mountains, this 85-year-old 900-room hotel offers access to five of Palm Springs’ best golf courses and a premier on-site tennis club. Greta Garbo and Kate Hepburn, regulars back in the day, would have approved of the updated 23,000-square-foot spa and new adobe casitas. The spa offers eucalyptus-infused pedicures, ginger masques to jumpstart circulation, massages for young athletes and even a dual rubdown alongside your dog.
During a three-day bike trip in the Smoky Mountains, you’ll improve your climbing, sprinting, passing tactics and road etiquette while riding nearly 150 miles. A portable bike shop handles repairs, and energetic guides follow in support vehicles. Thirty-minute express massages and farm-to-table meals follow each intermediate-to-advanced ride. Afternoon activities include treatments in the newly renovated spa, shopping, wildflower hikes, and wine and cheese tastings.
