Summertime used to mean months off from school, sleeping in, and enjoying the long, hot summer days. Now, it’s hard to even get a three-day weekend! But don’t be discouraged; we’ve figured out just how to cure those summertime blues. And don’t think that this diagnosis is so uncommon, we’re sad just thinking about all that sun time we’re missing out on because we’re sitting in an office! So here’s the cure: a staycation! We know, you’ve heard it all before, and staycations end up turning into one night of fun followed by the same old weekend. But this time, we’ve got the inside scoop on the best spas in town, and you can pamper yourself until you can’t remember what city you’re in. So set aside one weekend for relaxation and rejuvenation. Not only can you take care of any beauty treatments that you might need before heading to the beach, you can save money on hotels and travel—have your cake and eat it, too!
Urbana Cityspa and Teabar
Of course, it doesn’t hurt to pretend like you’re leaving the city. After all, the point of a staycation is to feel like you’re vacationing without breaking the bank, right? So pamper yourself at the Urbana Cityspa and Teabar. After walking in, you’ll be wondering whether you’ve stumbled into a loft in New York, which is fine by us! The chic spa offers services like The Olympian for you athletes, or the Escape for Two (we’re pretty sure you can figure out who that’s targeted towards). To make yourself feel even more not at home, enjoy the Teabar, with teas from all around the world, in addition to herbal elixirs and wine. All of that, and you don’t even have to leave Charlotte!
Oasis Day Spa
But there’s definitely something to be said for enjoying that wonderful Southern charm that drew you to Charlotte in the first place, right? So head over to Oasis Day Spa inside the remodeled Antebellum home, and pick from a selection of manicures, pedicures, massages, facials, and much more. The best part is, you can maintain that freshly pampered feeling by browsing the online shop for the products that were used on you to rejuvenate in the comfort of your own home, and continue your stay-cation throughout the weekend and summer months! A spa staycation that turns into a way of life? Where do we sign?!
Georgetown Day Spa
As nice as a spa weekend sounds, we know some of you have got the busiest schedules this side of the Mississippi. Worry not, and head over to the Georgetown Day Spa. Tucked away in a cozy neighborhood, you can indulge in the popular Day Break, which includes a 30-minute massage, manicure and express European facial. All the makings of a spa trip fitted right into your day! Don’t miss out on a little R&R time when you don’t have to worry about your schedule or breaking the bank—we meant it when we said you can have your cake and eat it too, as long as you eat it at the Georgetown Day Spa!
Don’t stress yourself out picking the perfect spa for your staycation. We know, finding a great spa can be like finding the perfect pair of jeans; it takes years. But we’ve found other options for you to check out, so you can get your relaxing on! Don’t miss out on the Head to Shapes Salon and Day Spa; Euphoria Salon and Spa; The Spa at the Ballantyne Resort; Parvin’s Spa; or Celestial Soul (exclusively for women!).
