August 22, 2016: Adventure log #2. Kind of sounds like Star Trek doesn’t it? Well a day at Glen Ivy Hot Springs is anything but techy, and intentionally so. Glen Ivy’s mission is to relax and renew. From the variety of pools and spas to the grotto and skin treatment options, there’s something for everyone here. And don’t forget the most important part, the mud! Glen Ivy’s Club Mud is awesome – be sure to wear an old bathing suit because you literally cover yourself in red clay mud!
I’ve been coming to Glen Ivy with my girlfriends ever since I moved to Canyon Lake back in 1996. I’m excited that Robin enjoys it now just as much as I do. It’s a great way to put the phone down and relax and connect with each other. What’s amazing is that you can spend an entire day there for as little as $35 (even less if you qualify for their 10% discount)! It’s like being at a five star resort. A great place to spend a birthday, girl’s day or just relax with your sweetheart like I did.
Glen Ivy’s history is rooted in California’s past, all the way back to the mid 1800’s. It has changed hands several times over the years, most of which sought to improve the resort. The history of Glen Ivy Hot Springs is worth the read: http://www.glenivy.com/glen-ivy-hot-springs/the-experience/history/. Native Americans first gathered at the hot springs in the Temescal Valley for healing and giving thanks and many more have followed suit throughout the years thereafter. It is truly a unique place! I hope you have an opportunity to visit; you won’t be disappointed!
