Although it's known for its world-class accommodations, San Francisco's Cavallo Point Lodge also offers plenty of amenities for the day visitor.

If you're only able to spend the morning or afternoon at Cavallo Point, make the most of your visit with their Spa Day Pass at a reasonable $65. The package includes yoga, pilates or meditation at the Mission Blue Chapel, access to the heated mediation pool, all-day access to the fitness suite and the uniquely California opportunity to replenish in their eucalyptus steam room. Just a walk across the gorgeous, renovated grounds with stunning views of San Francisco Bay is enough to replenish most spirits.

And Cavallo Point is perfectly situated for hikes throughout the Marin Headlands, or even into Sausalito. In fact, if you really want to "earn" your relaxing day at Cavallo, get there via a brisk walk across the famed Golden Gate Bridge. If you happen to be with the family, the nearby Discovery Museum offers amazing exhibits that will engage kids of all ages. And Farley Bar and Murray Circle Restaurant, right on the Cavallo Point grounds, offers a tasty menu for lunch or dinner.
However you get there, for an energizing, revitalizing day away from the city, be sure to check out Cavallo Point Lodge.
