Canyon Ranch

I went to Canyon Ranch with 4 friends a week ago. What a restful, wonderful  4 days we had!! You can hike or bike through exotic desert canyons or explore pine-topped mountains.(I loved my morning hikes!) Fortify your body with 40+ fitness classes a day. Enjoy unhurried consults with top wellness experts. Dine on nutritious cuisine, and learn how to cook that way at home. Melt away stress with the best body treatments anywhere. Flex your mind, nurture your spirit and let yourself soar. I highly suggest going there-it is in Tucson, Arizona. They have an additional facility in Lenox,Massachusetts in the Berkshires. Canyon Ranch also operates Canyon Ranch Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach, Florida, as well asSpaClub locations with primarily day spa facilities. These are located at the Venetian and the Palazzo hotels in Las Vegas, and on various cruise ships including Queen Mary 2, Regent Seven Seas and Oceania cruise ships. Canyon Ranch’s slogan is “The Power of Possibility.”

Going to Cuttyhunk is like taking a trip to the past. A very small island which has a population that swells in the summer and decreases to 15 or 20 in the winter,it is like living in a small town. Everyone knows everyone, there is a small general store, no restaurants except a small cafe near the docks, a little library, church and elementary school (in which there are two students)-these are considered the town of Gosnold.  The views are incredible from everywhere on the island.

It is located at the end of the Elizabeth Islands-between Buzzards Bay to the north and Vineyard Sound to the south.The island consists of 580 acres. Historically, it is the first site of English settlement and over the years, the site of many shipwrecks. Well worth the trip sailing over as we did, there are also ferries that run from New Bedford, MA-VERY occasionally once summer is over!
