Northbrook canoe company offers a great time for families along the Brandywine River. They have a number of river adventures that you can take. You can canoe, kayak, or even tube leisurely along the river. The prices are a bit high, but they are one of the few companies that offer this type of excursion in the area. They will transport you upriver so that you end your trip back where you parked.
Chester County Book and Music company in the goshen center pretty much has any book you could want if it is not a first print or an older book. There are rows upon rows of books, music, and gifts. Sales assistants are fairly visible and can direct you in the right area in this overwhelming store. They have best sellers, lesser known books, and many others. Great place for books.
Goods store has an interesting combination of products in one small(er) store. It is not a major department store, yet it offers fabrics, clothes and footwear, hardware products, hardware electrics, bird and garden supplies, fabric and sewing supplies, and small toys for children. Goods is a place where things seem old fashinoned where you can expect some reasonable prices.
Waterloo Garden center is a very comprehensive garden center that has not only plants and nursery supplies, but also decorations, and items for the home. The staff is mostly helpful except sometimes short when it is busy. Around the holidays this place becomes packed and wreaths and decorations fly out of this place. They decorate beautifully for the holidays.
J Karen Jewelers is not your typical mall jewelry store. They have many unique selections that you do not see elsewhere. They carry a nice line of wedding bands and the service alone is worth the stop. The staff is helful and know their stuff, but they are not pushy. The delivery, if you order something not in stock, is quick. Prices are reasonable and discounts are often offered.
Smithbridge cellars is a winery in Chadds Ford, PA off the beaten path. Their tasting room is located in a barn and it has a rustic feel. The staff is friendly and when we showed up when the lights were off, they even accomodated us. They have a wonderful Riesling and several French inspired selections. Worth a stop by while visiting other local wineries.
If you are looking for Pokemon memorabilia, gifts, or toys for yourself or someone else, look no further than this Pokemon center. Upon walking in, you will be surrounded by a glut of Pokemon characters on everything from umbrellas to wash cloths. The prices seem reasonable for New York and the staff are friendly and up beat.
Longwood gardens is so well taken care of you will not even see a blade of grass out of place. Their flower beds change seasonally and they are extremely good at signage that helps visitors do the techniques and designs at home. A real highlight is the design garden and children's area. The Italian water gardens are a delight in the summer.
The Forrest theatre is beautiful. They put on spectacular shows and the sound system is wonderful as well. The stage is expansive and allows everyone to get a good view. For the Phantom of the Opera, they installed a giant chandelier in the middle of the theatre and it swings down during part of the show. A wonderful theatre.
Dr. Burkland does hundreds of people's braces and does them extremely well. He had a very efficient staff and it is almost like an assembly line. They have consultations throughout the entire process to make sure treatments are progressing well. People and other dentists everwhere always ask who straightened my teeth. He's the best.
