By Betsy Malloy. You can take a mud bath in Calistoga, California. You may be wondering whether that's an activity that appeals more to small children and elephants than to you but don't go away yet.
Been going to this spa hotel for 30 years, during which time it has been periodically upgraded, but Would have loved more than the 10 allotted minutes in the mud bath portion of the 60 minute A first-time experience.

Really glad we stopped in here - it was a highlight on our trip out west. Nan was very welcoming Great experience having a mudbath under the stars in a private enclosure.
Yiannis calls out to me, from head to toe covered in mud. Only his eyes and eyelids are free from the therapeutic clay he's splashing around in.
