This drug store, though small, has an incredible amount of merchandise, with prices below those of other major chains..They have a wonderful selection of Vitamins and often have buy one get one free offers which I always take advantage of.
Their pharmacists are very helpful and will even deliver if need be.
The only problem I have with the place is that English seems to be the secondary language of the employees..
PROS: Great selection of merchandise at good prices
CONS: English is the secondary language
When I need a bathing suit I shriek in horror at the thought of shopping for one...But sometimes I go to Ritchies since they have nothing but suits and bathing attire to choose from..
Since I'm a bit on the busty side it's hard to find a suitable suit that makes me happy but, though there are more suits at Ritchies for those thinner beings, I have had luck in finding a suit on occasion..The staff is helpful in bringing suits to your dressing room, which is nicer than at a dept store..I only wish they had a bigger selection for my size.
PROS: Huge selection of bathing suits
CONS: not enough in bigger sizes
For years we have been going to see live productions in this lovely little theater in Coconut Grove..In itself the theater is a 1926 historical building and is known for the internationally acclaimed productions that have been presented there...an intimate small theater you never have to worry about getting good seats..The accustics are great so hearing is never a problem...whether it's a musical or drama you can always hear whats going on.
I'm very glad to be a member and look forward to every show I get to see there
PROS: Historical building, housing great theater productions
When my sliding glass door in the shower nearly fell on me recently I knew I would have to have it replaced or repaired..I asked my neighbor if she know of anyone who could do this job..without hesitation she recommended Sunshine Home Services..I called them and they were able to come over the next day..After looking at my shower door they gave me a good price and fixed it on the spot..
Now I can shower without worry of having an accident..Thumbs up
PROS: good repair job
Listed in the National Registor of Historic places, the Deering estate is another destination for me and my friends when we want a peek into the life of one of Miami's pioneers..It is an architectural, historical and environmental preserve now and just a glorious place to visit as you look out onto the surrounding bay waters..We loved the canoe tour as well as the tour of the house..and what a house!
Another perfect Miami day attraction for visiters and locals alike
PROS: A wonderful place to visit
CONS: Hot in summer
when I lived in North Miami Beach I lived pretty close to this beautiful building and gardens..This Monastery was originally built in Spain in the 12th century and brought over here piece by piece...The old stone building is a fascinating and unusual sight to see so close to a big city and is a a stunning display of architecture..The gardens surrounding the building are lovely to stroll though with benches to sit and ponder how they could bring an ancient building like this to Miami and put it together like they did...I for one am very happy they did!
PROS: Unusual and unique place to visit
I've been to My Gym at least a half dozen times for birthday parties for my grandkids...They love this place and have a great time on each occasions...they set up a nice room for cake and party goodies after the children get done playing..The staff helps them with all the equipment, organizing different activities and have a great birthday parade for the guest of honor..it seems like it's kept very clean as well.Thumbs up!
PROS: Children love all the activities and equipment to play on
The fruit and spice park is a favorite of ours when we have guests from out of town to entertain with someplace a little different...With over 500 varieties of fruits, vegetables, spices, herbs and nuts from around the world growing in abundance on this lovely landscaped property, you are sure to find something you just want to reach out and take a bite of..This is the only garden of its kind in the USA...You also get to taste many of the exotic fruits from the trees..Thumbs up for a tasty trip to this park
PROS: beautiful gardens to stroll in! samples are available to taste
CONS: hot in summer

On weekends they feature a 1/2 hour train ride to the past..This is a small museum but filled with facts that are interesting and displays that will hold the interest of an afficiado of those glories golden ages of travel.

When we needed to have a few signs designed for our business my husband went to A1 signs on a recommendation from a friend of his...He wasn't disappointed at all with the final results..The signs were exactly what he needed and the owner of the shop was very helpful in putting together exactly what we needed...
PROS: Very helpful and professional results
