Being away from Southern California, Miley Cyrus
apparently needed her fix of the sun!
The newly engaged
star, recently in Philadelphia to visit her fiancé Liam Hemsworth
, popped into Hollywood Tans with a pal, and seemed "very personable and very sweet," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
"She was asking for advice on cool places to eat, party and hang out," the source says. "She said she absolutely loves Philadelphia."
Cyrus was so pleased with her experience that she stopped by the same establishment again shortly thereafter for a spray tan.
"She was more talkative the second time," the insider says. "She was talking about how excited she was to be married."
Cyrus and her pal even braved the pouring rain to sneak in some pampering. – Patrick Gomez
