  • Sweet Creek Trail: Mapleton, worth driving a little further for!
  • Sutton Recreation Area trails (and campground) Far north end of Florence, past Freddies just before the little convenient store & Big Foot . Look for the brown signs, it will be a left turn if you’re heading north. the road goes back for a stretch, past the campground… keep going, short and long trail options very well maintained and lovely.


  • City Lights Cinema: a wonderful little theater owned & ran by movie lovers who have taken every possible precaution & gone the extra mile to keep you safe. serving gourmet popcorn, yummy snacks, wine & beer along with an assortment of new release, art house, documentary & fun films

There are a lot more treats & I will keep adding to the list and welcome treasures you find. I hope your massage day will end up being a wonderful “You” day that you look forward to as you explore these Florence and the areas around and have some sweet moments, fun adventures & create some wonderful memories to enhance your healing session.
