THE U.S. FIRST SPA

BERKELEY SPRINGS, WV. THE TOWN WAS ORIGINALY CALLED BATH, AFTER BATH ENGLAND. WE HAVE NATURAL SPRINGS THAT RUN THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF OUR PARK THAT HAVE A TEMP OF APROX 70 OR SO DEGREES YEAR ROUND. OUR MINERAL SPRINGS WERE USED BY NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS AS WELL AS GEORGE WASHINGTON FOR ITS MADICINAL PURPOSES. OUR WATERS ARE SAID TO HEAL GOUT, ARTHRITIS AS WELL AS MANY OTHER AILMENTS. YOU CAN ACTUALLY PUT YOUR FEET IN GEORGE WASHINGTONS TUB IN OUR PARK DOWN TOWN. BERKELEY SPRINGS WAS THE FIRST HEALTH RESORT IN THE U.S. AND CONTINUES TO THIS DAY TO OFFER A WIDE VARIETY OF SPAS AND NEW AGE TREATMENTS AS WELL AS ROMAN AND MINERAL BATHS THAT DATE BACK TO THE 1700'S. BERKELEY SPRINGS IS A MOST BEAUTIFUL AND HISTORIC TOWN WITH LOTS TO OFFER ANY HISTORIAN, ANTIQUE COLLECTOR, NATURALIST, HIKER, MT BIKER, OR JUST SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO PUT THE CITY BEHIND AND JUST RELAX...
