Fox Cities Valentine's Day Guide

Fresh out of ideas for this Valentine's Day? Check out these local spots that will ensure a memorable night or weekend in the Fox Cities.


  • A Day at the Spa

One of the most thoughtful gifts one can give their significant other is the gift of an experience. Giving a loved one the ability to feel relaxed and rejuvenated is a great way to show how much you care, and no one pampers better than the spas of the Fox Cities.

For a less traditional experience, visit Float Light Float Center in Downtown Appleton. Submerse yourself in a sensory deprivation pool and float your cares away. The float pods and float chambers are filled over 1200 pounds of Epsom salt allowing spa guests to float with ease. With light, sound, color, and temperature control, they will have the ability to customize the experience for the ultimate relaxation experience.

If floating isn't your thing, check out Beeswax Spa for a classic spa experience. Beeswax offers facials, massages, nail treatments and much more. Your significant other will enjoy a relaxing Swedish style massage and leave the spa feeling rejuvenated. For other spa options in the Fox Cities, visit the Spas & Wellness page here.
