As the temps cool down (hello 70s!) we’re more inclined to get our bronze on with a little help from the area’s top spray tan spots. A safer alternative to sun tanning, spray tans typically last one week and we recommend that you do not sweat/shower/get wet for 8 hours after each treatment.
So get your glow on without hitting the beach (or damaging tanning beds, for that matter) at these locally loved haunts that won’t leave you channeling Tan Mom:
