What's worse than stress during a vacation? Not much, we'd argue. Whether you're visiting San Francisco from near or far, you probably put a lot of time (and money!) into planning a perfect trip. You've taken some of your precious vacation time off from your demanding job, and you've been counting down the days on your calendar for some much-deserved time off. And then, as it always does, life intercedes and brings back its everyday stress - right in the middle of your vacation.
Luckily, there's no better place than San Francisco to relieve stress. On top of the very Californian tendency to "chill out," the city has a diverse Asian population with an amazing knowledge and history of spa treatment. If you're interested in a Japanese-style spa, then Kabuki Springs and Spa in Japantown is an excellent choice. If you want a day where you feel as spoiled as the richest of the rich of San Francisco, head up to the glitzy Nob Hill Hotel and Spa and be prepared to be lavished.
When stress comes calling, choose one of the spas on our list to rub it out. A trip to San Francisco can offer a lifetime of memories - make sure stress isn't one of them.
