A day at the spa- Pacific Waters Spa @ Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach

Two weeks I had an amazing evening with other mommy bloggers at the Pacific Waters Spa at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach. The hotel is stunning and the views of the Pacific Ocean are out of this world. It is a great place to walk around and take in the views.
From the moment I walked in to the Pacific Waters Spa I was able to relax. We were greeted by the friendly staff and escorted into the women’s lounge/dressing area. The area is large and comfortable. Ther changing area is very comfortable and there are plenty of lockers. We changed in to a luxurious comfy robe, slippers and then headed to the relaxation room to wait for our treatments.
I could live in the relaxation room. It’s a beautiful room with a fireplace, warm cozy blankets and the plenty of fun reading material. I could seriously stay in the relaxation room for hours just reading and relaxing. We were then treated to three mini treatments, massage, facial and a hand treatment. They were wonderful and I can’t wait to head there again.
The Pacific Waters Spa has a 3 month membership that I hope my husband will buy me for Valentine’s Day. The 3 month membership gives you three 60 minute treatments and unlimited use of the spa facilities. It also comes with free valet parking, 20% off spa services and use of the hotel’s pools. I am hoping to have it this summer and hit the beautiful main pool with the kiddies. The best part is that you could bring a guest with you! It would be perfect to bring your husband , best friend or sister. It is also very reasonable!

Could I ask you for a big favor? The Pacific Waters Spa is having a contest for bloggers and I need your help. Could you become a fan of the Pacific Waters Spa on Facebook and write on their wall- I became a fan after reading Daytrippingmom. The blogger with the most fans to sign up wins a day at the spa. It sounds like a dream come true!

The best part is that if you become a fan on facebook, you will receive a 20% discount on a sixty minute treatment! It would be a dreamy Valentine’s Day gift.

OC Parks Annual Pass for Regional/Wilderness/Beach Parking pass

Do you know about OC Parks Annual Day Pass for Regional Parks, Wilderness Parks and Beach Parking? I didn’t until a couple of weeks ago and now I can’t imagine not having an annual pass to OC Parks Regional and Wilderness Parks. OC Parks gave my family an annual pass for the year and I find myself using it at least on a weekly basis. I imagine we will probably use it on a daily basis once it starts to warm up.

The OC Parks Annual Combination Pass is $80 and gives you access to all of the regional and wilderness parks in the area. It also gives you beach parking to 4 of my favorite beaches- Aliso Beach(my absolute favorite beach), Capistrano Beach, Salt Creek Beach(gorgeous beach!) and Dana Point Harbor.

 I live about a mile away from Yorba Regional and have found myself going a couple of times a week(before the rain). The kiddos love the park grounds and before it started raining asked at least once a day if we could head over to the beautiful park. We are also huge fans of Irvine Regional Park. We easily spend an entire  day there. We pack a picnic, ride the train, walk the grounds, play, feed the ducks and then head over to the OC Zoo.   The Regional parks are gorgeous and the annual pass is an incredible deal.

As the weather warms up the parking pass for OC beaches will really come in handy. We head to Aliso Beach on an  almost weekly basis in the summer and this year I won’t have to worry about parking! Wohoo! I can’t wait.
You can find more about the OC Annual Parks by heading here and you can purchase your pass by heading here.
The annual pass is  a really good deal for families especially as the weather warms up. We are having a blast with our pass and I can’t wait for the weather to warm up and really put it to good use!
