The Best of South Florida: Best Tanning Salon
There's plenty of sun in South Florida. But if you want a great, even tan, the beach isn't your only option. Tonight.. we have the best tanning salons in South Florida - clothing optional.
(WSVN) -- If you want to beat the heat, no problem.
Sunny South Florida doesn't have to become stifling South Florida and you can still look like a bronzed beauty.
Tanning salons promise a radiating experience - guaranteed.
Just lie down and relax.
What used to take mother nature hours, modern technology can accomplish in mere minutes.
"In ten minutes, I have a very nice tan and I love it."
"I always leave her happy and tan."
You too will leave happy and tan at our viewers third choice. That's Tanzabar in Deerfield Beach.
"They're going to get a great tan. they'll see instant results."
Gary Cliff and his staff work hard to provide a tanning experience that includes just the right personal touch.
"I have a little Yorkie and they watch my dog when I come to tan."
"When they see my truck pull up, they have my CD in and bed ready."
Those beds come in four varieties: medium, medium-hot, hot, and very hot.
"Its the bulbs that make the difference."
"I have constant complements from people."
People also can't stop complementing our 2nd choice. that honor belongs to Miami Tan in North Miami.
"Ireccomend for everybody to come over here."
And if you do come, you're more than likely to return. Miami Tan has more than seven thousand people in their database.
"Icome here everyday for 12 minutes. I was really, really pale before and now I have some color."
At Miami Tan, that color comes easily.
The staff here works very hard to make sure they match their clients with the right tanning beds.
"When you first come in we take a skin analysis... we'll determine what bed you should use."
And the results...
"I feel great. I love it. I'm addicted."
You will surely feel great at our viewers first choice.
That's because they specialize at the little things like leaving candy out for their customers.
So for a tanning experience that's definitely sweet, South Florida tells us the best tan is at Tropical Tan in Pembroke Pines.
"I've been here and there and this place is the best."
The best at just about everything.
The clients here never break a sweat over being treated correctly..
"Its never too crowded. you can always get a good appointment."
And you can always be sure your room is clean.
"Keeping everything sanitized is a big part of it."
But the biggest part is making sure the equipment is up to date.
Tropical Tan knows that in this business, the heat is always on.
"This makes us feel like our hard work is paying off."
Next week, we promise to go easy on the hot sauce. We have the best buffalo wings in South Florida.
