• Beyond the Border: The Heartland Spa & Fitness Resort

     
    FROM THE Fall 2015 ISSUE
     

    The spa and fitness center moves north.

The Heartland Spa & Fitness Resort is now headed north. Originally opened in 1983 in Gilman, the spa has now relocated to Bella Vista Suites in the resort town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The boutique-style hotel focused on wellness retreats has 39 units, and each room has a private Jacuzzi for guests to enjoy. A short drive from Chicago, the Heartland Spa offers guest services that are centered on creating healthier lifestyles. With packages that include one-, two-, three-, five- and seven-night inclusive stays (or a oneday option with no room stay), options include fitness classes, deliciously healthy meals and relaxing spa treatments like Reiki and acupuncture. Guests can enjoy group classes and wellness experiences and learn from health experts in a beautiful and soothing environment. 

The home of Rockford’s new entrepreneurial event space may date back to the 1920s, but Rockford City Market is primed to showcase future creatives and makers of all kinds.

 

To say Wisconsin is having a moment would be an understatement. A statewide renaissance resulting in plenty of new developments, impressive renovations and entrepreneurial ventures has been years in the making and shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.
