The aromas of tropical oils and lotions waft throughout Pacific Bronze & Bliss, adding to the welcoming ambiance of more than 2,700 square feet of tanning equipment. The solar-simulation emporium features airbrush-tanning services, as well as traditional bed tanning with UV light to keep skin from getting the winter blues, a condition where the skin rebels by actually turning blue. Appointments are available after-hours to accommodate busy schedules.
