From sitting in salt caves to enjoying a CBD massage, here are the best ways to relax in Denver.

After the rush of the holidays, we all need some pampering. When an at-home bath bomb and facial mask won't cut it, consider getting away for a day by visiting a local spa. It will cost much less than a vacation, but will still work wonders at lifting the winter blues. You might as well make self-compassion one of your New Year's resolutions, so you'll have an excuse to give yourself a break from your busy life. Here are our favorite spots to relax in Denver.
