Healing Spa, Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort, AZ
At the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort’s spa, we experienced something rare: a session with a Native American healer. After the treatment, a combination of light touch, Native American ritual and centering techniques, we felt so good that next year, we returned to the spa with our adult children.

Hotels, Santa Fe, New Mexico
Two very different hotels are among our favorite places to stay in Santa Fe. The Inn on the Alameda creates a friendly, home-away-from-home feel and the larger Hotel Santa Fe adds the option of luxury with its Hacienda rooms.
How to Choose a Dude Ranch
Dude ranches have gone the way of coffee: plain ride ‘em places—the ranch equivalent of a 7-11 brew—still exist, but more and more ranches lure wannabe wranglers with experiences tailored to their specific tastes. And that’s a good thing, but it makes it hard to choose the right experience for you.
