I've had memberships at 3 different places in town, and Tropical Zone is hands down the best tanning salon I have experienced so far in Chico! The friendly service, quality clothing, airbrush tanning,... and VIP tanning membership has led me to never go back to the other places!! ♥ See More

I have not been tanning in years. I really like how clean the salon was and how well maintain the beds were. I would recommend this salon to others. Thank you for the great service!

Comfortable, knowledgeable & clean. I also love the baby wipes, hair spray & spray deodorant for touching up! It's the little things that set this tanning salon from the others. Plus they're locally owned!

Hey TZ friends! Did you know that UV rays reflect off dry skin? Not using a lotion when you tan can result in wasting up to 50% of your tanning session. Luckily, we have a great selection of some of the best lotions on the market! Come see a TZ employee today and get a great lotion to enhance your tan.☀️
