IDEAS FOR A LEISURELY DAY
Relax and savour your time in the region at your own pace. After all, you’re on vacation. 1. Therapeutic treatments such as tea-infused facials and vinotherapy services at 100 Fountain Spa (page 30) can help soothe tight muscles and have you glowing again. Serene O Spa (page 30) provides specialized services for both sexes, such as a hydrating facial for gents or a detoxifying mud wrap for ladies. Get pampered in absolute luxury at The Spa at White Oaks (White Oaks Resort & Spa, 253 Taylor Rd., Niagara-on-the-Lake, 1-800-2635766), which boasts 17 treatment rooms including a couples suite. 2. Nothing says indulgence like stopping to partake in the centuries-old English tradition of afternoon tea—nibbling on dainty, crust-less cucumber sandwiches or scones with cream, and sipping tea from a cup and saucer. Visit The Drawing Room at the Prince of Wales Hotel (6 Picton St., 905-468-3246) for one of the best services in the area. 3. The works of playwright George Bernard Shaw and his contemporaries are honoured each year at the Shaw Festival (page 30). Sit back for a matinee or evening performance of the musical Cabaret or Shaw’s own Arms and the Man.
