SoCal’s Best Hot Springs

Posted on February 6th, 2017

Mini beauty getaway, anyone?

Last week we shared some of the amazing spa services we offer at iTAN. From the FIT® Bodywrap to the Photo Facial, our spa services work with your schedule, (and your budget!) yet still feel like you’re getting away from it all. And they make you downright sparkle.

One thing we do not offer at iTAN, is hot springs. We TRIED you guys. We asked Mother Nature. She told us to go to our room. We huffed and puffed and when she threatened to make it not sunny here for 95% of the year, we gave in.

SoCal spa road trips

The good news is, if you’ve got a free weekend coming up, you can easily get your girls together and road trip it to a SoCal hot spring nearby! From Palm Desert hot springs, to San Diego hot springs… from luxury, to camping… we are #blessed indeed to live in this corner of the world!
