Heading down to Southern California, we find another destination where I would love to have the opportunity to visit – Golden Door. With a fifty year history, it is world renowned as the ultimate health and fitness destination. While many people think of a spa week as a something you do solo or with a group of women, Golden Door offers quite a few co-ed weeks, and, the men only weeks are becoming more and more popular. The week long programs are all-inclusive with many amenities including all meals featuring farm to table ingredients, multiple sessions with a personal Fitness Guide, a daily in-room massage and other spa treatments; access to 20 miles of private
trails for walking and hiking; numerous fitness classes and gyms to choose from; and a complete spa wardrobe with daily laundry service. No excuses here!

What do you get when you combine 6,000 acres of pristine natural beauty surrounded by the red rock canyons of Western Colorado, an owner who founded the Discovery Channel and the luxuries of a five star resort? Gateway Canyons…the ideal vacation for families with active teenagers (or adult children), groups of friends or even a corporate retreat. Discovery Channel founder, John Hendricks, took his favorite touches from the many luxury properties where he has stayed, and has brought them back to his own resort at Gateway Canyons, so luxury lovers will not be disappointed. What really makes this property stand out, however, is the multitude of activities available – horseback riding, fly fishing, mountain biking, river rafting and helicopter tours, as well as an off road driving experience and auto museum which make this a “must visit” for driving enthusiasts.
SO…there we have it…just a few of the remarkable properties I discovered at Virtuoso Travel Week. For every one I included in a post, there were five more that were equally as spectacular. It is a big world and it is filled with more beautiful places than any of us could visit in a lifetime…but it can’t hurt to try!
