The Ultimate Tan & Med Spa's locations house traditional and UV-free tanning equipment alongside teams that are certified to perform a slate of med-spa and salon treatments. Cosmetic injectables, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels aim to restore epidermal radiance, and ThinSpa weight-loss plans and CelluPulse cellulite-removal treatments help clients shift into a svelter shape. To soothe away accumulated stresses, massage therapists customize sessions to each client’s unique needs, drawing from a range of modalities to leave musculature more relaxed than a zen master’s stress ball.

Cellar Door Wine Tours is located in the heart of the Willamette Valley American Viticultural Area, which encompasses numerous subregions—delineated by climate, soil, and other features—that are known worldwide for their pinot noir. Owners and tour guides Helen Avery and Mark Treick couldn't be more excited about their location, since their relationship is somewhat built on a mutual love of wine: their first date was to a beer and wine festival near Portland, and they moved to Oregon's wine country after their family established their own vineyard. Now, they lead couples and small groups on full-day, half-day, and à la carte tours of boutique wineries, wherein they share their enthusiasm and knowledge of Oregon's wine country and its accompanying food and culture.
