Every time I travel to Santa Fe, I always plan a spa visit to Ten Thousand Waves, which is probably my favorite day spa in the U.S.  It’s located in the hills above Santa Fe on the way to the ski valley and is a peaceful retreat that is modeled as a Japanese onsen.  It’s… Continue reading Ten Thousand Waves Spa, Santa Fe, NM
