My daughter, 7, enjoys having her hair cut at Angel Hair mainly because of the little airplane, jeep, and horse you can sit on/in while getting a trim. Their stylists are competent if a touch uninspired, but if you know exactly what you want done they can follow your instructions perfectly. They are also pretty patient with fidgety children.
I've used Norton's many times, for everything from boquests for Valentine's day to condolences for funerals. If I give them a budget and tell them what I'm looking for they will make me exactly what I need, no problem. They're always friendly on the phone and willing to do what it takes to make me happy. Their arrangements are lovely as well. I highly reccomend them.
A visit to Reed's Books is a bit like taking a trip in a way back machine without knowing exactly where you'll land. It's evident the owner has a love of vintage books and books in general- if you're looking for something off the beaten path or out of print you should start here. The gentleman behind the counter was pleased to answer my questions on my last visit and was willing to place an order with another bookstore should that be what I required. If you're a bibliophile (like myself) come some afternoon when you have a free couple of hours and wander through the shelves. I guarantee you;ll find something to surprise and delight.
The Tenneessee Aquarium is a truly amazing aquatic experience. There are several 'habitats' to explore, most of them freshwater, and the care that has been taken in the design and display of the tanks is very apparent. Themain walkway is built in such a manner that you walk down a series of ramps and can view several of the largest takns from several different levels. There's also a 'petting' area where you can handle some of the larger fish- a delight for young children. And the seahorse exhibit is truly magical- the leafy seadragons in particular. My family loved it so much that we bought a membership!
I've been ordering Indian films from Nehaflix for a couple of years and am always pleased by their prices, selection and service. I recently ordered a film and CD set for a friend's birthday and they made sure I had it in my hands in time without an extra charge! Because of their customer service and their wide selection of films they are always first on my suggestion list for folks looking for Indian films.
I've taken my children to the underground tour of Ruby falls a couple of times now and it hasn't failed to delight either time. An elevator takes you deep underground where a knowledgable tour guide takes you through a cavern full of incredible rock formations. At the end of the tour you are rewarded with an up-close view of the falls itself, and you can get close enough to get wet. Wear some comfortable shoes and bring your camera!
I have always enjoyed visiting Rock City with my family. The rock formations are a delight and the decorations at Christmas in particular are something to see. It's a little like stepping back in time- for Southerners in particular. Who doesn't remember seeing Rock City signs on roadtrips through the South?
I wouldn't reccomend the tour for very young children as some of the paths go quite high and it's a bit of a walk for little legs.
Be sure and check out the gift shop after the tour, and take a few minutes to play at the playground.
I love this consignment store! They always have very high quality clothes, books, shoes and toys available for kids and moms alke. Their selection is always in excellent shape- I have never purchased anything that that had any pilling, stains, or other imperfections. And their customer service is always outstanding. The ladies in the store are always able to help me find what I am looking for.
Walking into Olde Time Pottery is like walking into a feast of household bargain possibilities. I love hunting for great prices on the things I need (their prices are very reasonable) and finding some great bargains. I have found terrific prices on wicker baskets, ceramic planters, dishes and towels amongs other things. If you're looking for a great price on household goods try looking here first.
B & C Nutrition has always set a high standard for customer service. They folks behind the counter are always friendly and know how to help. Their prices are good and the store is clean, well-stocked and pleasant.
