Because guys deserve to be pampered too.

Spa days shouldn’t be a female-only experience. While treatments like facials and pedicures typically fall into the “female sphere,” men deserve to be primped and primed just as much as the ladies. Unfortunately, that doesn’t make men feel more comfortable about entering a spa that’s likely full of women (and decidedly feminine in its décor or services). Luckily, there are spas that are breaking the barrier with male-friendly treatments. Below, we highlight spas that are making massages macho and putting the “man” in manicure. more

This historic country club, located on 1,000 acres in Bedminster Township, was once a peach orchard, then a dairy farm. Built in the 1930s, the original stone manor now serves as the clubhouse. The name “Fiddler’s Elbow” originates from the bend in the middle of the Lamington River that runs through the property.  more
