In addition to darkening complexions, Hot Spot Tanning specializes in red-light therapy, which can help improve skin's tone and texture.
Kids tumble and frolic throughout the myriad bounce houses at Jumper's Playhouse—ranging from simple bouncing surfaces shaped like fire trucks to obstacle courses and slides. Occasional appearances by Elmo make it a prime spot for youngsters’ birthday celebrations, with each event taking advantage of a private party room and food options with a throne for the birthday boy, girl, or imaginary sibling.
Boasting muddy obstacles and live gladiators who attempt to slow down competitors with impromptu jousts, the Tough Dash isn’t your average weekend 5K race. As participants trek through mud pits and strength-testing obstacles, microchips track their time, adding a fun competitive edge to the event. The runners aren't the only ones who get to join in the fun, however; spectators are encouraged to soak runners and unfortunate pedestrians who accidentally took a wrong turn with water balloons and water guns. A post-race celebration regales runners with food, beverages, and prizes for the top male and female times and the best costume. Proceeds from this event benefit the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital.
At the Historic Sam Davis Home & Plantation, history isn't just something you learn about?it's something you can walk around in. Sam Davis was a Confederate courier who was hanged by the Union army as a spy. Visitors can tour his homestead on the 168 remaining acres of his father's plantation. Thanks to the efforts of Sam's niece Andromedia Sinnott, who founded the Sam Davis Memorial Association in 1930, many of the estate's original buildings are still standing. This allows visitors to find out what life was like on the front lines of the Civil War, what toys children of that time period played with, and how the more than 50 slaves who worked on the plantation lived day-to-day.
