Delray may be a great town for revelers, but it’s also ideal for a "spa-cation." Here's where to hang your hat, and your spa robe, on a weekend visit.

These oceanview villas have their own pool and concierge, and run up to $2,000 per night. (No wonder Donald Trump Jr. was spotted hanging out in the lobby.) The new luxury accommodations are ideally situated, adjoining both the fitness center and the jewel box spa, which offers a full array of massages, scrubs, facials, and wraps. 10 N. Ocean Blvd., Delray, 1-888-236-2427   >>Read More

The heavy lifters of the polo scene haven’t always been the ones wielding mallets. In the mid-1920s, American entrepreneur and developer Carl Fisher enlisted two Asian elephants to ensure that polo season ran smoothly by tramping down and rolling the grass on the polo fields between games, working in the garden, and scooping sand during the construction of Fisher’s Nautilus Hotel.
