Pampered Getaway: 3 Top Resorts & Spas in the Midwest
Lean in, we’ll let you in on a little secret…some of the best places to be pampered are in the Midwest. Yes, that’s right, the Midwest. While many people look along the coasts from sea to shining sea for beach-side havens, flyover country has the crème de la crème of resorts and spas. We at Best Midwest Travel give you our top three picks for the best resorts and spas in the Midwest.
The American Club Resort | Kohler, Wisc.
Golfers flock to The American Club Resort in Kohler, Wisc., and it is definitely worth the hype. After all, four championship golf courses call the resort home, and the courses also rank in Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses. But, it isn’t only a golfer’s paradise. The resort’s Kohler Waters Spa has also been awarded the coveted 2013 Five-Star Award by Forbes Travel Guide which makes it one of only 35 spas worldwide to receive the perfect score. You can spend all day in the spa or come in for a beauty service escape. The full Star Treatment includes a one night stay at The American Club, a yoga class, two 50-minute services at the five-star spa, and a 20% discount on any additional Kohler Waters Spa services.
French Lick Resort | French Lick & West Baden, Ind.
An escape to the French Lick Resort will make you feel like royalty. With a bowling alley, horseback riding, and hiking trails at your disposal, you will never run out of things to do at this historic resort nestled 65 miles south of Indianapolis, Ind. In case that isn’t enough, the French Lick Resort boasts not only one but TWO world-class luxury spas: the Spa at French Lick and the Spa at West Baden. Both spas promise and deliver a pampering experience fit for gods. For a solo or couple spa indulgence, we recommend the European treatment at the Spa at West Baden.
