Glen Ivy Hot Springs 25000 Glen Ivy Road Corona, CA 92883 (888) 453-6489, www.glenivy.com Though Glen Ivy Hot Springs has opened day spas in Brea, Valencia and the South Bay, the original spa is the perfect escape valve for harried Southern Californians. The red clay mud baths -- which earned it the nickname Club Mud -- are just part of the pampering at this spa that includes mineral baths, lounge pools and secluded massage areas on 11 acres. There's much to do -- or not do -- here for couples seeking some down time. Open daily, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; admission starts at $35 per person; $48 on weekends and holidays. (You must be 16 or older to enter.) This is strictly a day spa, but you might want to ratchet up the romance factor by staying overnight at a nearby hotel. Ayres Suites Corona West has a Glen Ivy Hot Springs Getaway for one night -- $164 midweek, $191 weekends -- that includes a king studio suite and two passes to Glen Ivy Hot Springs. Call (800) 452-4995 or go to www.ayreshotels.com.
