Explore the scenic Upper Hudson River with a single kayak rental, which plants paddlers on a private launching point before they float from Thurman Station to 1000 Acres Ranch on a five-mile trip. Take in the views of surrounding flora and fauna before a complimentary shuttle whisks you back to civilization. The tubing trip allows two people to relax in harmony during a leisurely 2.5 mile float down the Hudson. Lasting approximately two hours, or the time the average American spends watching cat videos per week, this tranquil trip provides serene surroundings and calming conditions for bonding or splash fights.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.

What sets your business apart from your competition?
I believe my drive to to help people sets my business apart. I want people to know that they don't have to be a celebrity or rich to look like a million bucks. I also want my clients to feel a boost in their confidence, because looking and feeling good leads to great things. I focus on making clients feel as comfortable as possible while working with any budget and doing my best to find them the best deals.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
I am originally from a larger city where fashion and style is a norm. When moving to this area, I realized there is almost nowhere a person can go for fashion advice. I want to reach out to this community, promote fashion, and help people look their best. At the same time, I want to convey that this isn't a luxury; it can be affordable and fun.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best reaction was when a client cried tears of joy and said for the first time in her life she felt beautiful and attractive. I want all my customers to feel that way, and I actually believe that everyone can feel that way with just a little fashion guidance.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
I get to meet people with all different styles. It's a learning experience for me, as well as them, because we go through a kind of journey together.
