A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa 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, such as 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 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.
At Outdoor Discoveries, veteran naturalist Roseanne Van Ee guides excursionists across picturesque landscapes while imparting her extensive knowledge of local flora and wildlife.

The nature guru illuminates the history of the mountain while explaining the geology and ecology of the region. Meanwhile, trailblazers can sate stomachs and pocket-sized labradoodles with provided refreshments, all while Roseanne points out the stunning wildflowers and wildlife. Buyers can also opt to ascend the mountain via scenic chairlift; tickets are available on-site if desired and cost an additional $10 for adults, $9 for youth and seniors, and $7 for children.
