WAKE UP, SAY OM

Vegas Magazine - - Now In Vegas -

Out-of-town­ers may think morn­ings in Ve­gas are for han­gover brunches or sleep­ing off the night be­fore. But a new travel trend is hit­ting town that prom­ises to help vis­i­tors leave a lit­tle health­ier: well­ness travel. That fla­vor of tourism— which boosts your men­tal, phys­i­cal and so­cial well-be­ing—is grow­ing 50 per­cent faster than the over­all tourism in­dus­try, ac­cord­ing to a Vir­tu­oso Travel study. Ve­gas is tak­ing ac­tion by of­fer­ing a hand­ful of top-notch well­ness ex­pe­ri­ences for trav­el­ers and lo­cals alike. Here are three of our fa­vorites. – ME
