2008 edition hits bookstores and newsstands
According to a recent study by Expedia.com, 51 million Americans — 35 percent of the adult work force — do not take all the vacation they earn. Before another year slips by, it is time for everyone to schedule some time off and start planning a 2008 vacation. Just in time to help deprived vacationers with their travel plans, the latest edition of Destination Spa Vacations® magazine has hit the bookstores and newsstands throughout the country. The magazine showcases Destination Spa vacations in the travel guide and offers endless healthy living tips in the lifestyle sections.
“Destination Spa Vacations provides all the information for planning a health spa vacation,” comments Michelle Kleist, Executive Director of Destination Spa Group®. “Our hope is that readers will be inspired to stop the deprivation cycle and plan a vacation that allows them to truly get away in 2008.”
Spa goers have many options when making travel plans. For a spa vacation that offers much more than a postcard holiday, the solution is to visit one of the exclusive spas of Destination Spa Group. The spas range from intimate and rustic to large and luxurious - each offering a unique setting and experience. Spa goers can hike in the stunning scenery of British Columbia, explore andimmerse in the culture of Mexico or enjoy the intimate setting of a country manor in the Pocono Mountains. The magazine’s extensive travel guide offers a comprehensive two-page description of each location, including large color photographs, a summary of the facility, amenities and accommodations, an explanation of services and activities, maps and rates, making it easier for spa travelers to choose the spa that’s right for them.
