As the summer draws to a close and we look back at a summer filled with backyard barbeques and beach staycations, there is still one item on that "to do" list. Schedule in some "me time."

The latest “Stress in America” survey paints a dire picture: more Americans claim they are stressed than ever before.

Greater Fort Lauderdale offers a vacation solution that’s good for mind, body, soul and tourism.

Now in its 5th year, Lauderdale Spa Chic, running September 1 – 30, promotes health, wellness and relaxation along our sunny shores. We aim to replace the “S” in stress with “S” in savings for a happier, healthier community. These September deals give travelers a reason to visit and enjoy luxury for less, with guiltless pampering from head to polished toes.  

Fifteen Greater Fort Lauderdale spas are participating in Lauderdale Spa Chic 2012 with treatment options available for $99, up to 50 percent off the regular rates. From the oxygen blast facial at the W Fort Lauderdale’s Bliss Spa to a Zen massage at The Spa at Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, to an orange blossom facial at the Atlantic Resort’s Spa Atlantic, and a signature facial with an opal eye treatment at The Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale.
