Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

At Palace Spa, relaxation occurs long before you sprawl out on a massage table. The reason for that—ambient light. The spa's color-changing lights turn the hallways into luminescent corridors of calming blues, warming greens, and tranquil yellows, helping to lesson anxiety before the massage.
Add to that the 360-degree sound system that plays soothing music, and you have a soothing experience that extends beyond your hour on the table. But the massage is still the highlight.
Palace Spa's therapists all have at least five years of massage experience and perform numerous modalities. Treatments include full-body massages, hot-stone massages, and foot massages, all of which ease tension and help clients feel as happy as a politician who just pulled a photogenic baby out of a well.
