The Parlour Hair Salon operates seven locations across Colorado, and each one surrounds its clients in style as soon as they walk through the doors. Established in 1989, the exposed-brick walls, wooden beams, and high ceilings distinguish the Lower Downtown Denver location.
Though each of The Parlour's locations has a distinct personality, they all have a few things in common?namely a team of talented stylists and aestheticians. Before they can snip a hair or buff a cuticle, each of the beauty experts goes through The Parlour's own educational program. The curriculum covers aspects of advanced hairdressing as well as more subtle areas such as communication?an essential skill when working with clients towards the perfect style.
Every morning, the lotus flower surfaces from the murky water and unfurls its brilliant petals in the sun?s warmth. This image of a lotus flower blooming on the sign outside A Rich Experience Massage & Wellness Spa hints at this process of perpetual renewal. The spa's team attempts to help patrons blossom, drawing out inner beauty in minimalist rooms to help create a calm and peaceful atmosphere.
During skincare treatments, the staff's medical aesthetician analyzes facial features before refreshing them with products from Botanical Science. Muscles purr smoothly under the hands of a licensed massage therapist, who, unlike an Olympic gymnastics coach, uses pressure to relieve tension.
"If you want to aggressively snack your way through a neighborhood as you walk it," says Fodor's, "consider hanging with cookbook author Tom Medin or one of his local guides." Medin is one of the founders of Local Tastes of the City Tour/SF Food Tours, and he personally leads many of the company's walking tours, which seek out the soul of the city in its bakeries, restaurants, and cafes. The hunt for hidden gems might lead to Chinatown's oldest bakery and a fortune cookie-making demonstration, or through an authentic Western saloon. The North Beach tour, which has been recommended by Lonely Planet, presents a behind-the-scenes look at coffee-roasting by way of the favored hangouts of the Beat Generation. Even when a tour skirts the city's iconic landmarks via painted bus, each stop is replete with tastings and demos, which is why the guides recommend that visitors avoid eating before a tour or swallowing their backpacks for safekeeping.
240 East Cordova Street used to be the address where Vancouver’s police officers, morticians, judges, and dead converged. The building, which was built in 1932, served as the city’s coroner’s court and morgue until the 1980s and the city analyst’s lab until 1995. Countless toxicology tests and several high-profile investigations have taken place between the building’s walls, including the Castellani Milkshake Murder and Errol Flynn’s autopsy. Fittingly, given the building’s significance to Vancouver's criminal-justice history, it is now home to the Vancouver Police Museum.
To date, the museum staff has curated a selection of approximately 20,000 historical artifacts, including confiscated weapons, counterfeit currency, photographs, paperwork, and vintage police vehicles. Currently, 40 per cent of the collection is on display in the museum’s several exhibits, one of which allows visitors to explore a coroner’s forensic lab. The museum also offers educational programs such as walking tours and a two-hour forensic-science program. During this program, guests scour a faux crime scene for clues and try to prevent the brash, young rookie cop from running off into the night to find the perpetrator.
Customized Tours leads groups on guided expeditions of Seattle's most breathtaking spots. Outdoor adventurers can try the Mount Rainier National Park tour or the winery and waterfall tour, which travels across Lake Washington on the 7,700-foot Evergreen Point floating bridge to the world-renowned Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery. City tours explore a variety of coffee shops and tourist attractions across the Queen Anne, Fremont, and Chinatown neighborhoods.
One of the more unique tours is the Boeing Factory tour, which gives visitors a behind-the-scenes look at airplane assembly. It also gives them a chance to design their own airplanes using touch-screen computers, or, for traditionalists, old geometry homework.
