I recently visited the Dunes Village Resort with about 11 other women for a weekend away. We rented several of the 4 bedroom, ocean front condos and we were pleasantly surprised. The condos were large with full size kitchens and large dining room table. The living room was a nice size with a pull-out sofa bed. Each bedroom, expect one, had a private balcony and the there was a large balcony off of the living room with an ocean view. There were 3 large bathrooms, included one with a jetted tub. There was a decent breakfast buffet in the morning. We did not eat dinner in the resort. We drove to nearby Broadway at the Beach to eat. We also spent a lot of time at both the indoor and the outdoors pools. They were large pools and not overcrowded. We also enjoyed ordering lunch and drinks from the pool side cabana. We walked down the boardwalk to the beach and relaxed during the morning time. The beach is clean and only a bit crowded during peak hours/season. The indoor water parks were a blast and very clean! They also had several staff members watching the pool areas. I would recommend this resort to anyone needing a getaway at a reasonable price. I definitely recommend this resort for families.
Loca Luna is a great local restaurant with a nice menu and wine selection. The location is right on the edge of downtown LR and the price is reasonable. The only complaint that I have is the service is very slow. So if you are not in a hurry...try it out.
The Flying Saucer is awesome! They have over 150 different brew from around the world. They also have a great appetizer and brats menu to go with the brews. The atmosphere is relaxing and laid back, the staff is excellent. It's a great place to meet up after hours with colleagues or friends.The Flying Saucer also has live music, a few pool tables and some game night contests. The price is right!I recommend The Flying Saucer to anyone looking for a great atmosphere and a awesome selection of brews!
West End has a great atmosphere to meet up with friends or clients for a drink. There is lots of seating, a few pool tables and a great bar! They have a nice appetizer and menu to choose from if you want a meal before drinks.
I highly recommend West End Smokehouse & Tavern to anyone looking for a reasonably priced meal and drinks.
Juanita's cafe/restaurant side is a great place if you want delicious Mexican food and margaritas! I have been to Juanita's more times than I can count with friends and family.
The bar is fully stocked and has a large dance floor area with a stage for a band. The atmosphere is great for an evening of entertainment. I recommend Juanita's to anyone looking for a reasonably priced restaurant/bar for an evening out on the town.
The Holly Springs Farmer's Market is a great way to support our local farmers/vendors! They sell a variety of in-season produce, baked goods, goat cheese, flowers and other locally grown/owned products. I enjoy the friendly vendors and appreciate how delicious the fresh foods are for my family to enjoy!
I have been a recurring patient of Brown Orthopedics in Fuquay over the past two years. I have received decent care overall but I have never gotten back to my patient room in a timely manner. The shortest wait time I have encountered is 35 minutes past my appointment time. I was also disappointed by the extremely high turnover of PA's within this office. I am satisfied with the level of care received but I may look for another practice, if needed, in the future.
I have taken my 2 year old son to Apex Pediatrics since he was born. Dr. Brian Bowman is his primary pediatrician but we have seen almost all of the pediatricians at the practice and they are wonderful. My son was born two months early, so we were in NICU and then had several visits to the peds office for the first year of his life. I honestly do not know what I would have done if it weren't for the caring attention, compassion and professionalism of the pediatricians at Apex Peds. I have never had an issue scheduling appointments or having my son seen when he became ill. The staff are friendly and helpful. The waiting area and patient rooms are very clean and child friendly.I would highly recommend Apex Pediatrics to anyone wanting excellent medical care for his/her child.
I have been taking my son to Snip-It's in Apex for a little over a year. He loves the cute and animated decor of the facility. There are toys and videos to keep the kids occupied while they wait and during the haircut. They offer a "first haircut" package to include a photo. The stylist are so patient and wonderful. They help make the experience pleasant for a child who may be scared. They offer a little "prize" at the end of the haircut, as well as discounts on haircuts and products throughout the month. We have personally used the haircare products on my son and they are great quality products. The prices are adequate for the experience and my son now loves getting his haircut!
I would recommend Snip-It's to anyone with children who need a haircut and a fun experience!
Sunni Sky's Homemade Ice Cream is the best ice cream around the area! They offer approximately 65 different, homemade flavors of ice cream. The staff are extremely friendly and the price is perfect for a day out with your kids or friends. They also offer delicious shakes, floats and sundaes! The hours are perfect to swing by on your way home from work or after dinner with the family. They open at lunch and don't close until 10 or 11 pm depending on the day. They have a large grassy area with a water table for the kids to play.If you love ice cream and a warm friendly atmosphere, then check out Sunni Sky's in Angier. I highly recommend it!!
