Make Spring Break your healthiest trip ever! We have beautiful studios located in some fun vacation hot spots, and our owners and instructor teams can’t wait to welcome you. Read on for a list of studios and amazing places to visit on your next getaway.
La Jolla (San Diego): Kick off your day at barre3 UTC, then head to the La Jolla or Del Mar beach to catch some sun (and maybe a little surfing too!). Be sure to visit the San Diego Zoo and make time to hike along beautiful cliffs overlooking the ocean at Torrey Pines Trail. Looking for a healthy, delicious sit-down restaurant? Grab a bite to eat at True Food Kitchen in Fashion Valley (our instructors rave about the food here!).
Henderson (near Las Vegas): We’re all for enjoying the vibrant nightlife Vegas has to offer, but it doesn’t have to be all about late nights and hangovers. Put a healthier spin on your next trip and get energized with a class at barre3 Henderson. Next, head to Rachel’s Kitchen at the District for a post workout meal or snack (owner Jackie Edlund loves the Arugula Pearl Salad with Tuna + Popeye’s Secret green juice). Do you love hiking in nature? Check out Red Rock Canyon. The Calico Basin Trail is a spectacular winding path of lush green and brilliantly colored red rock landscape.
Denver: Before you drive out to the mountains to hit the slopes in Vail or Aspen, visit barre3 Denver in Cherry Creek to build strength and stretch. For dinner, head to owner Julie Gordon’s favorite restaurant Root Down. You’ll love their delicious food using local, organic ingredients. During your trip, be sure to make time to visit Red Rocks, a natural amphitheater with accessible hiking trails nearby—you won’t regret it!
Austin: After class at barre3 Austin, walk to the Whole Foods Flagship store for a nourishing snack. If the weather is warm (which it usually is), catch some rays at Barton Springs or kayak, paddle board, or bike around Lady Bird Lake. Afterwards, make some time to check out the hip, unique shops on Congress Street. If you can squeeze it in before dinner, go to Mount Bonnell to see the sunset. For dinner, eat at Sway, a modern Thai restaurant with communal seating. The dishes are exotic and delicious, and it’s studio owner Kim + Tara’s favorite restaurant in town. After a busy day of sightseeing, you’ll love turning in at the ultra-chic Hotel San Jose (whenever the barre3 core team visits Austin, this is our favorite place to stay).
New Orleans: While we’re dying to experience Mardi Gras and check out the chic European French Quarter, we’re eager to explore the healthier side of New Orleans too. Jump on the street car and take class at barre3 New Orleans (the location is amazing, and the team there will make you smile while you’re shaking and quaking at the barre). After class, grab some takeout and head to “The Fly,” a special park overlooking the Mississippi River that’s part of the renowned Audubon Institute. After lunch, stroll under the live oaks through Audubon Park or walk over to the Audubon Zoo to see the White Tiger. After a full day on your feet, there’s no better place to refuel than at one of the John Besh Restaurants. Besh is a local chef who sources all ingredients from Louisiana and celebrates traditions from the region.
Winter Park: Class at barre3 Winter Park with owner Ashley Dishman is a must. And don’t stress about finding a delicious, balanced post-workout snack—just hit Skyebird Juice + Experimental Kitchen (located in the East End Market), and order the barre3 salad for a yummy balance of fiber, protein, and healthy fats. On Saturdays, indulge in fresh, juicy, local produce at the Winter Park Farmers Market—it’s just steps away from the barre3 studio. For activities, don’t miss out on visiting Rock Springs—it’s a great place to float on steamy, hot days. On cooler days, check out Blue Springs State Park and watch the manatees. And for a fun way to explore the city, take a Scenic Boat Tour and explore the city via pontoon boat!
