Garden World has the best selection of good-sized trees in the area. They have a pretty decent selection of most everything else as well. The staff was very helpful, especially in the loading of trees into the truck. We'll use again, especially for hard-to-find items.
This is most organized Goodwill store I've ever seen. You can find shoes, kitchenware, or clothing in great condition. The store seems pretty clean for a donation site and the staff is pretty friendly.
PROS: Price, selection
I bought a Honda Civic from this dealer but it was one of my worst car buying experiences. The salesman wouldn't come down on the price even though it was the last model year on the lot (i.e. 2004 model in 2005). I stupidly fell in love with the car and had decided to buy it regardless. I wasn't being unreasonable, but it took so long to agree on terms that it was dark by the time we left and we never got to inspect the car in day light. Look elsewhere.
CONS: Sales people
I have used My Sister's Closet both as a consumer and consigner. The owner is very selective about what she will take in, often discarding items from Nordstrom - although I'm not sure why. Nice dressing rooms are provided. I have found some great used items here over the years, although you often have to look through everything.
The zoo has really changed since I went as a kid, but it's still a great place for adults and kids alike. I would recommend going on a day with mild weather as the animals get a little lethargic when it's too hot. It's a little expensive, but a great experience.
This is one of the newer facilities and it's beautiful. I would suggest one of their Hip Hop dance classes. They only offer them once a month, but there are varying skill levels and it's a fun way to exercise.
While this gym has a vast assortment of weight machines, my experience at the gym varied by the time of day that I've gone. During the usual busy times (after work) it's almost impossible to find a cardio machine and you'll often have to wait to use any of the weight machines also.
PROS: Good instructors
While this can be a great social experience, it's not much for a workout after a while. You're always doing the same types of movements and your body gets used to the resistance/exercises. It's better than sitting on the couch but not as good as other types of resistance training. On the flip side, it can be fun and the staff is usually pleasant.
I love to shop here during the holidays. They always seem have great sales and a good selection to choose from. They have a great line of scents and nice presentation.
The rating of this store depends on what you're looking for. They have a great selection of most items, but not the petite clothing. I usually end up shopping in the other sections and hemming it myself. If an item isn't on sale, just wait until next week.
PROS: Selection - except for petite clothes
