Behind the verdant palm fronds painted onto Tropical Island Tan’s front windows, three levels of UV beds and trained tanning technicians stand ready to impart skin with a summery hue. The staff loads up airbrushes with an aloe-based Swoosh Sunless tanning solution, then coats bodies in two layers of the spray to ensure full, long-lasting coverage in the face of swimming, showering, or napping in a fountain. Outside the private-tanning rooms, the staff displays Designer Skin, OC, and body butter products and helps tanners select the best regimen for their skin type and desired bronzing level.

On 10 a.m. on the first day of 2013, City Park's Great Lawn will fill with people ready to start the year off not with a resolution, but a commitment—a commitment to a healthy lifestyle. They'll run, walk, or jay-walk through the park and Marconi Drive on the flat, fast course, which it circles back to the Great Lawn where they started. After the race, runners can stick around for a post-race party to celebrate a successful first morning of the New Year.
In more than 30 cities across the nation, other runners will be participating in similar events as part of a movement that aims to stymie the rising rates of obesity and inaction in the United States.
For more than 100 years, Pike Place Market has been the epitome of a marketplace. The bustling cobblestone streets are packed with farmers, craftsmen, and performers, and the aproned employees of Pike Place Fish Market famously toss around freshly caught fish during traditional games of fishball. Public Market Tours' guides lead groups through and beneath these sights and sounds twice a day, shedding light on Seattle's history. A portion of the ticket sales benefits the Pike Place Market Foundation, which supports low-income and senior residents.
