PLAN DATE: SUN / AUG. 11
Bring your swimsuit to the end of the 7 train for a rejuvenating, fun getaway without leaving the city. This legendary Queens day spa combines traditional Asian saunas and modern European spas for a relaxing afternoon at one flat ticket price. Leave the phones in your lockers and enjoy the hot and cold baths, a variety of saunas, a huge outdoor water space, and many quiet relaxation rooms.
Enjoy the culinary version of hot baths at Spring Shabu Shabu, where all you can eat vegetarian hot pot will cost you less than $20. Every vegetable you could imagine is freshly chopped for Spring’s super-fresh, massive buffet, alongside homemade noodles, dumplings, rice cakes, and more. Pick your broth, make a sauce, load up on veggies, and finish out the meal with free matcha soft serve.
