The Publix on Missouri is not only a clean grocery store with a friendly, helpful staff...they also have one of the best cake decorators around. You can't go wrong with this store's cake department! They come highly recommended! Go to the other store branches and they will tell you the same.
I enjoy working out at Lifestyles in St. Pete. They have the latest equipment and the staff is knowledgeable. Unfortunately, other people agree with me so the gym gets a little crowded between 3:30 - 8:00. If you decide to go between these hours you may have to hunt for a parking spot and wait for the equipment that you want to use. Pack your patience!
I love the props and the bright backgrounds that The Picture People use. They are located in Countryside Mall in Clearwater. It's also nice that your pictures are ready in a hour. While you wait you can cruise around the mall or grab a bite to eat. The photographers are wonderful and they really know how to capture your child's personality. My only suggestion is that you don't make your appointment while there's a coupon out. They tend to get overcrowded and chaotic. It's really not worth the money you'll save.
Seminole Lanes on Park Blvd. in Largo is a good bowling alley for teenagers. Closer to the evening they have galactic bowling. The lights go out, the black light comes on, there is smoke and new age music blasting in the background. Personally it gets on my nerves, but I know that my older nephews and niece would just love it!
All in One Golf off if 66th street in Largo is the best driving range that I have ever been to. They have air conditioned booths on the 1st floor and they even have a 2nd level from which to hit form. The place is kept very clean and the staff members are friendly. They also offer lessons and have a pro shop. Check it out!
The Tri City 8 Theaters are located off of EastBay Drive in Clearwater. They show all the latest movies and it's a decent sized theater. I like that the theaters has a wide variety of restaurants in front of it. If you need a night out and you're looking for dinner and a movie, this is the place for you. You can get it all in one stop.
The GTE Federal Credit Union is a fine bank with a friendly, helpful staff. Their rates are comparable to others. However, their checking policies are NOT the best that you can find. For this reason, we have had to find another credit union.
My husband and I have use Mark Higgins State Farm Insurance Agency for our car insurance for a few years now. His office is located off of Seminole Blvd. in Seminole. So far we have been very happy with our decision. The office staff is extremely helpful and friendly. I'm sure my husband would tell you that he just wishes his rates were as low as mine. We have the same policy and the same driving record, but he pays quite a bit more for his than for mine.
If you need help maintaining your pool or spa then Pinch A Penny on Seminole Blvd. in Seminole is the place for you. Bring in a sample of your pool or spa water for a complete water analysis. There is always plenty of parking and the staff is more than helpful.
We had the guys at Untied Air Conditioning off of Belcher Road in Largo replace out air conditioning a couple of years ago. We couldn't have been happier with their service. We felt like their prices were reasonable and they treated us like valued costumers.
