Ruby Spa at the Edgefield
2126 S.W. Halsey St., Troutdale
Ruby’s Spa is part of Edgemere, a quirky estate in Troutdale, which is a short day trip from the city and also fun for a short overnight. McMenamin’s (the group that owns Edgemere) is famous for whimsical wall paintings and a subtly renaissance feel, and the spa is no exception—you’ll find quirky designs on the walls, dark wood furniture, and a warm soaking pool outside the old white building. While you’re in town, stop at one of Egemere’s famous brew pubs or catch some live music.
