Anna Ruby Falls marks the junction of Curtis and York Creeks to form the twin waterfalls known as Anna Ruby Falls. Its a paved 0.4-mile footpath leads from the parking lot to the base of the falls. It is a little up hill. I use to walk it with ease, now its a bit of a chore! LOL Walking will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Benches are provided along the way. There is a $2 parking fee for cars and a $10 parking fee for buses. But well worth it. The falls are beautiful! You will love it!

Your little ones and maybe some older ones will enjoy Skate Palace. They have Laser Tag and an Arcade area. The one thing I don't like is all those cheesy toys you buy with the tickets you earn. They should let you cash them in for drinks or food instead of those prizes. Anyway, They do have some great birthday party packages to purchase and they do offer several different ones. You can even have a private party. They have school skate night, christian night, Wednesday is cheap skate night where admission is a dollar and they even have a dance club. There is a little something for all ages.
PROS: Fun for your kids
CONS: No fun for you!
I would not reccomend Shenandoah collision. They dod do a great job a fixing my vehicle but it took forever. It was my husbands truck and he was in a wreck before he was deployed with the Army a while back. Well, I don't know if they tried to take advantage of a female or if they were having a bad month. They kept the truck for about four weeks when it was quoted less time than that. Also, Upon getting the truck back, I noticed a cigarette burn on the side of the passenger seat. I called and stopped by the facility and they assured me that the burn didn't come from any one there. Funny thing, No one in my entire family smokes, so you figure out where it came from?
PROS: Great work
CONS: Takes forever and you may get a cigarette burn on your seat as well!
You will love this book store. The folks are friendly and very helpful. I remember when this store was in their old building and I was a child. I loved to go in there , go all the way to the back and buy stickers to put on my clip board. They offer a large selection of books, gift wrapping and shipping. Occasionally they will have a book signing. Oh, They do speciual order! They have an extensive Children's Section including plush toys, Eric Carle and American Girl dolls. And Yes, They still offer those quirky stickers! I love to shop there with my son. Its like a tradition!
PROS: Great store! Lots to choose from.
CONS: The Hours.
