Mind, Body & Spirit - Wellness, California-Style
In The Swim: California Pool Culture
Champagne cocktails paired with bay views at a swank San Francisco hotel’s penthouse. Extreme retail therapy in Beverly Hills’ Golden Triangle. A pulpy and posh grape-infused spa treatment steps from a Napa vineyard. These are just the tip of the titanium iceberg of luxury experiences that abound here. Ever since California’s Gold Rush caused a flood of prosperity to flow into the state, California has developed a refined taste for the good life. Today, myriad experiences abound whether it’s fine dining in one of California’s celebrated haute restaurants (including four Michelin-star rated establishments) or stays in fantastical suites, villas and ski lodges in locations as diverse as Lake Tahoe and Rancho Mirage. Then there’s splurges on other only-in-California experiences such as ogling the million dollar motorcars and watching PGA pros compete at postcard-perfect Pebble Beach Golf Links. Or maybe rubbing elbows with A-list celebrities in a Hollywood rooftop pool bar is more your style. Whatever luxury looks like to you, you’ll find it within the gilded borders of the Golden State.
