The Destination
Excelsior Springs, Missouri, gained fame in the late 19th century when a serendipitous farmer found a mineral well that seemed to brim with healing properties in the shady woods near his land. Word spread, and the town quickly blossomed into a medicinal resort. Today, visitors come not only for a relaxing getaway, but also to check out antiques shopsae burgeoning local art scene, and fine dining.

The Digs
Shortly after the discovery of the area's restorative waters came The Elms Hotel & Spa. It's existed in various incarnations for more than a hundred years, and was twice destroyed by fire. Now, this grand dame of hospitality, fresh off a multimillion dollar renovation, exudes opulence inside and out, from its opulent limestone facade to the 16 acres of trees and gardens that surround it.

Luxury linens and understated décor lend the guest rooms an air of tranquility, and amenities include a spa with an indoor European lap pool, and contemporary Midwest fare at the upscale-casual Eighty-Eight at The Elms. Dishes like the Barham Farms chicken breast, served with polenta and roasted vegetables, sing with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, and a menu of classic cocktails, wine, and local beer complements each meal.

The Diversions
Indulge in an array of luxe body treatments at the 25,000-square-foot spa

• Drink in the countryside and some local wines at VanTill Family Farm & Winery
• Take home a taste of Kansas City at Wabash BBQ and Blues Garden

  • "Founded in the 1880s... this historic building hosted Al Capone and Bugsy Moran during the Prohibition, and President Harry S. Truman the night he bested Thomas Dewey in the 1948 election."
