Where to Darken Your Tan

Where to get your tan on in DC

Compared to other parts of the country, tanning salons in D.C. are expensive. On average, prices are around double what they are in other regions. Even buying a package doesn’t cheapen up getting that healthy summer glow. While it may only be a small difference in pricing from place to place, knowing who offers the best deals may save you a few dollars. Here’s the breakdown of five major tanning salons located strictly in D.C.

Hollywood Tans: There’s no need to make an appointment and there are plenty of beds, so waiting isn’t necessary. Rates run from $19.00 a month (for members) to $79.00 a month, depending on what level of performance that you choose. Located at 625 D Street NW. 202-393-8267

Body Rays: Packages run on a point system starting at 800 points for $44.99, up to 5000 points for $200. Or you can have unlimited tans in a regular bed for just $29.99 a month. There are no member fees, either. Located at 1635 R St.NW. 202-667-4525

Casa Del Sol Tanning: This place has three convenient locations around D.C: Cleveland Park, in upper Northwest D.C. on Wisconsin Avenue, and off of Grace Street in Georgetown. UV-free tanning is available at all stores and starts at two visits for $29. 202-364-0600
