Portland: #2 on the T+L List
“They’re audaciously quirky,” T+L’s piece says and evidently, their spa choices are no exception. From a clothing-optional community healing bath house, Common Ground, which also offers massage, acupuncture, naturopathic care and counseling, to a sensory deprivation salt tank, Float On (a four-tank float center, the largest on the West Coast), we’d say T+L was pretty on point. Skin by Marywynn is an “awesome face skin place that plays Grizzly Bear,” an insider says, and just an hour away, though not in Portland, is Carson Hot Springs just over the Washington border, where hipsters and golf enthusiasts alike go to bathe in mineral water funneled into tubs, be swaddled in linen to sweat out toxins then get a massage. “It’s totally weird and amazing,” our source says.
