National Relaxation Day is nearly upon us; do you know where you’re celebrating? The Eaglewood Resort and Spa celebrates the holiday Aug. 15, with a Bright and Bubbly Package. Get the lux amenities and tranquil pampering through Sunday, Aug. 19.

Couples, mother-daughter duos or just single travelers looking to unwind, as guests of the Eaglewood Resort & Spa celebrating National Relaxation Day with the Bright & Bubbly package, find their bliss just outside of bustling downtown Chicago.

Enjoy a bed-and-breakfast-style stay. Upon arrival, guests receive a tranquility-inspired welcome bag filled with spa products and luxury skincare by Kerstin Florian, a facemask and loofah.

Step into your room and indulge in chocolate-covered strawberries and Champagne before heading out to the balcony for some incredible views of the resort’s 160 acres.

Enjoy breakfast for two at Burnham’s Restaurant after taking full advantage of the resort’s fitness center. Swim in the indoor pool before your spa appointment and treat yourself to a day of relaxation — just as the holiday intended.

Not in the Chicago area, but still want to relax and unwind? Check out a few options able to help with the task.

The Lodge at Woodloch Spa in Northeast Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains is a 4-star luxury wellness retreat for the whole family.

Meanwhile, across the country, Colorado’s own Park Hyatt Beaver Creak Resort and Spa is a luxury escape in an unparalleled oasis. Take a dip in the signature pools of the Allegria Spa after a massage or head to the salon for a styling. With deep cleansing facials for men and radiant skin treatments for all, choosing between massage therapy, skincare services and a variety of detoxifying treatments should prove difficult. It’s a holiday. Go nuts.

Families of all ages love to spa and unwind, so check out this list for locations catering more toward the little ones. Enjoy family bonding while relaxing or head out on your own for an unforgettable way to indulge in self-care and relaxation.
