Mystic Hot Springs is a great weekend getaway! It’s is located in Monroe, Utah. If you live close enough, you can drive here and back in the same day. HOWEVER, I have heard it’s better at night!
If you want to spend the night here, staying in Monroe is more expensive than staying in the city over, Richfield. Richfield is a bit bigger, so hotels seem to be cheaper. You may want to double-check and see what the best deals are at the time you’re going.
If you have a bigger family, or are going with a big group, you could look into getting an Airbnb. I’ve never personally tried it, but I have heard great things! If you try it out, let me know what you think in the comments below!!

When I went to the Mystic Hot Springs, I had to pay in cash. They were out cleaning the tubs, so they have you fill out your car info and put cash in an envelope and put it under the door of the office. We didn’t have cash, so we had to drive into town, get cash, drive back and pay. Bring cash just in case!
