According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American gets eight to 16 vacation days per year, depending on how long they’ve worked at their current company. Along with paid holidays, that’s more than enough time to take a couple of weeklong trips per year.
But why wait to negotiate more vacation days during your next salary review when you can live somewhere with resort-style amenities? When you sign a lease at 4th West in Salt Lake City, every day will feel like a glamorous getaway. If you’re lucky enough to be living at this new apartment community in SLC, clear your calendar and prepare for the staycation of a lifetime. Everything you need for a successful sabbatical is right outside of your front door. Here are a few ideas to get you started on a day of at-home bliss:
Start your staycation by sleeping in a few hours past your normal wake-up call, then head to 4th West’s 3,500-square-foot rooftop fitness center for an invigorating workout session. Whether you’re a cardio fiend or you want to focus on strength training, the community’s fitness center features all of the equipment you could ever need – along with magnificent mountain views. Find your Zen at the 1,600-square-foot yoga studio, or challenge your neighbors to a pickup game on the full-size basketball court. Locker rooms have towel service, too, so you won’t have to tote any extra laundry home.
Now that you’ve had your workout for the day, make sure your dog gets some exercise, too! The community boasts a dog park so that you can bond with Fido without having to trek across town. Embark on a leisurely stroll, enjoy a spirited round of fetch or simply let your four-legged family member mix and mingle with all of the other pups that call 4th West home. If your best friend gets a little dirty during playtime, no worries – just visit one of the community’s three dog wash stations before heading back home for nap time.
Fill up your bike tires at one of three on-site repair stations, then pedal over to City Creek Center for a tasty lunch – and don’t forget dessert, because everyone knows that staycation calories don’t count. Just over a mile away from 4th West, the stylish open-air center also boasts an array of popular shops, so pick up a fresh outfit or new pair of shoes while you’re out. Bike back home and clean up at the bike wash station before returning to your apartment for a relaxing shower or luxurious bubble bath in a spa-inspired bathroom.
Now is when the real fun starts. Kick back in the community’s state-of-the-art sports lounge, which features plenty of comfy seating and a 16-screen LED TV wall – perfect for watching the big game in a high-tech environment that is simultaneously relaxed and electrifying. If you’re more of a player than a spectator, hone your short game on the 9-hole putting green, try your hand at darts or start up a shuffleboard tournament with friends or neighbors.
Invite a few lucky friends over and splash around in the zero-edge rooftop pool — a luxurious feature that makes this community stand out from other apartments in Salt Lake City — or simply unwind with a good book or your smartphone in one of the lounge chairs on the sun deck. When you need some shade, retreat to one of the cozy cabanas to cool off. Once dinner time rolls around, take advantage of the community’s demonstration kitchen, which comes complete with professional-grade Viking appliances for all of your grilling, baking and braising needs. Bon appétit!
As the sun begins to set in the serene Salt Lake City sky, decompress in one of the heated spas while taking in stunning downtown and mountain views. Interested in a more formal evening celebration? Simply rent one of the community’s stylish rooftop event venues for a summertime party you and your friends will never forget.
