18. Feel the sand beneath your feet
There’s nothing like walking on a warm swath of sand; it makes you want to drop and roll around like a dog (at least until you notice all the gooey gum wads and cigarette butts that plague so many public beaches). Lynnwood’s Olympus Spa (ladies only, fellas) offers a clean alternative with its sand room. The 150-degree sand is covered with a canvas tarp—lying down on the warm surface is said to relieve menstrual cramps, among other bummers. Worth a try.
