Valentine’s Day Southern California, Style
If you’re part of a duo this season–and even if you’re not–head to The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside, Calif., for a super-pampering and luxurious Valentine’s Day couples treatment. (After your treatment, hit Casey’s Cupcakes for a lover-ly dessert.)
History buffs take note: Nancy and Ronald Reagan chose this hotel as their honeymoon destination.

Kelly’s Spa at The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa looks like a turn-of-the-Century mini castle and comes complete with excellent local window shopping, Kelly’s Boutique, an olde Hollywood glamor pool and romance aplenty. It’s special to be here during a Valentine’s Day weekend, plus the resort is a National Historic Landmark.
Co-owner Kelly Roberts suggests this couples treatment this year:
The Enchanted Moments Package (2 hours $310 per couple)
· Two 80-minute candlelit His and Hers aromatherapy massages
· Hand-selected rose petals sprinkled in your private Tuscan villa poolside
· Two glasses of sparkling wine
· Dipped chocolate-coated strawberries
· 20-minute additional en suite time
· Complimentary valet parking
We especially appreciated their new Spa “Wellness” Menu, featuring antioxidant-rich smoothies, so if you’re in Riverside, Calif., stop in for a Berry Parfait. The Mission Inn Foundation and Museum offers daily tours to acquaint you with its grand history.
How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day together this year?
