We have had Rapid Plumbing do a couple of jobs for us, and they seem to be very knowledgeable. They have always been on time, and their workers are polite and respectful. I don't feel they tried to sell me work that didn't need done, and I feel their prices are fair- better than some, and not any worse than others. I would definitely call them again if I needed to.
I bought my daughters big girl bed here. The sales staff was very friendly, and didnt try to push me into buying a top of the line mattress set for her. They have a large selection, and we were able to quickly find what we were looking for. I paid less than I had expected to, and they helped us load it into the car.
We have taken our cars to Horsman Automotive for a few years now, and they have always done good work, and havent tried to oversell repairs that werent needed. The staff is knowledgeable and the waiting room is comfortable. We only had one time when the part we needed was not immediately available, and then it was done the next day.
We visited Oak Creek RV Park while looking for a place to park a RV. This park seems nice looking, and the bathrooms and showers are clean. There are lots of trees, and shade, but the price to rent a spot was a lot higher than I was expecting. The office staff wasnt real helpful, in fact seemed like they didnt want to be there.
The Japanese Friendship Garden is well worth a visit. My family likes to go here to relax after visiting a couple other museums at Balboa Park. Even though it is small, it is great to take your time going through it, and we always seem to see something new. My daughter especially loves the koi pond, and my husband likes looking at the weapons displayed in the meditation room. It is very peaceful. I think the bamboo fountains are really neat too.
My daughter had taken dance lessons here for a few weeks. They didn't really have a class for her age group, so she was put with kids 1-2 years younger than her. There is no real provision for parents to watch the lessons, and the waiting room was small and cramped, and the floor was dirty. Although the office staff and teachers were friendly, they seemed hurried- not a good thing when you are dealing with little kids. Also the room my daughter's lessons were in was really too small for the size group they had.
I go to guitar center to buy strings for my husband's violin. They always have a good selection of strings, and the ones he likes are always in stock. It is fun to try out the electric pianos. My husband had been searching for a specific piece of software so he could record music, and the staff was very helpful in locating it for him. The store is a bit cramped and you have to be careful sometimes not to knock things over, but that is not too much of a problem if you are careful.
We have gone fishing at this "lake" that is actually a reservoir for the local water district. First we tried fishing on the pier, but didn't have any luck- The next time we rented a boat, and spent hours up there, and still no luck. You have to have a fishing license, of course, but they make you pay extra to fish at this lake. You can't walk around the lake, really, either, and for the most part it is all fenced off. If you go to the parking lot on top of the dam however, it is a good place to fly a kite!
I Love this store! If you like surplus stores, you will too. They have a huge selection of military surplus everything. It is a great place to get camping supplies. For the most part their prices are great. The owners will watch you like a hawk, and it is not a place for young kids. They have a large selection of clothing and boots.
I visited this RV park while looking for a spot to park. I would not recommend this park if you were coming for vacation. It appears to mostly be set up for long term residents. It would have been hard to get the RV up and around the tight curves and steep hills to park it. They had a small "rec" room, but it was locked. From what we could see in the window, it was just a small bare room. They also store RVs that are not being used, and I think it would be fine for that purpose.
