Berkeley Springs

Berkeley Springs is a town of 663 people (as of 2000) in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, across the border from Maryland. "Berkeley Springs" is the name of the post office, but the town is incorporated as Bath. It's a vibrant artistic community, full of quaint inns and historical connections to George Washington, but it's most famous for its mineral springs, which are used both for drinking water and rejuvenating warm baths. Understandably, the spa (and pampering) business is big in the area.
