Year Round Brown’s Smart Tan-certified staff are on hand to help tailor a tanning plan to fit your skin type and desired level of dermal doneness. In less than a minute, the Versa sunless spray system deploys a fine mist that delivers a moisturizing, UV-free bronzer to bodies recovering from a messy solar divorce. The ray-friendly can opt to catch some beams in the sleek, fast-acting signature bed. Signature level sessions last about 10–12 minutes, with an average of 5–8 sessions required to reach total tan development. Regardless of which option you choose, the luxurious rooms, softened lighting, and soothing sounds of the lobby waterfall will help melt your troubles and bring them to the surface where they can be cooled into an attractive golden enamel.
Wall Stickz beautifies interiors with more than 200 cut-to-order vinyl wall decals, crafted from high-quality Oracal vinyl in 16 vibrant hues, which adhere smoothly to any clean, dry surface for a faux painted finish. “Live Laugh Love” ($15.95) and other inspirational quotes scroll winsomely along staircases, and lifeless junk rooms animate with dramatic vignettes of the New York skyline ($17.95), an angry grizzly bear ($9.95), or a cloud of multisized bubbles ($19.95). Six-packs of reusable chalkboard African animals ($19.95) cavort between cornices and dutifully record wipe-away reminders such as “I love you” and “Buy more rhino chow.” While Wall Stickz’s decals are designed to hug surfaces indefinitely, they disengage easily, sparing dry-wall dermises from expensive and painful tattoo removal.
The rolling grass greens at Clark Municipal Golf Course lead players through nine challenging holes stretched across nearly 3,000 yards. The course saves its biggest tests for the end of rounds with eighth and ninth holes that measure the longest distances, by far. The par 5 eighth is especially difficult, as it features a sharp dog leg and checks in at 490 yards. To keep spirits high before, during, and after rounds, the facility also has weekly specials, including ladies night on Tuesdays and guys night on Thursdays. The clubhouse, meanwhile, features a fully stocked bar and can be rented for private events to celebrate birthdays or when a new ball develops its first dimple.
