Stride Rite in Tyrone Mall is a good place to find quality kids shoes. You can always count on them having a good selection. I like that their shoes come in wide and extra wide and there is always a friendly employee to measure your childs foot to ensure the best fit. I don't like that the prices are high, but they do sometimes mail out coupons for $5 off. You can also shop on-line. Check it out!
The Florida Aquarium off of Channelside Drive in Tampa has so many exhibits to look at and a lot of great experiences for the kids. The admission prices are a bit high, but they do sometime offer discounts and coupons. The staff is friendly and helpful and the building is kept clean.
Dan's Fan City on Seminole Blvd. has the largest selections of fans I have ever seen! If you can't find the perfect fan at another store, then go see Dan. Better yet, why not save yourself the time and go to Dan's Fan City first! There prices are reasonable and there is always plenty of parking.
At Adventure Island in Tampa you are bound to find some fun in the sun. The water park has relaxing bayous and rides for the more extreme water sports fanatic. The lines do tend to get long especially in the summer. They also have a wonderful small kid area. The park is clean and reasonably priced. Make sure you load up on the sunscreen!
Just Tan Incorporated off of Park Blvd. in the Lifestyles plaza has competitive prices and often has coupons in flyers. The staff there is friendly, but best of all the store and the tanning beds are kept clean! For your convenience they offer a variety of tanning packages.
I was so frustrated with Castle Dental when I made an appointment with a dentist there a few months ago. The staff member was very friendly when I made the appt. and he took down all sorts of personal info. I proceeded to make babysitting arrangements. When I showed up on the day of my appt. they said that they couldn't see me because my insurance assigned me to another office. Now...I know that this is not their fault. However, it would have been so much easier if they would have figured this out when I called to make the appointment in the first place.
The Pickle Barrel is a good place to take the family for lunch. I haven't found a sandwich there yet that wasn't stacked high. Chances are, you won't be able to finish your lunch yourself. I usually share my order with my mom. The servers are friendly and the prices are reasonable. There is usually plenty of parking.
There is so much to do at Lowry Park Zoo. Both adults and kids will have fun visiting all of the animals. The zoo often has coupons and specials for Florida residence. The areas are kept clean (for a zoo) and the staff is friendly. Don't forget your sunscreen!
Bicycle Outfitters is a great family owned and run business. The back of the store runs along the Pinellas County Trail and you can often catch them serving their regular customers a healthy breakfast on the weekends. Now that's what I call customer service! Their prices are reasonable and staff is more than friendly. Take a look if you're in the market for a bike.
At Seminole Furniture you will find new and gently used furniture. What you won't find is a large selection to choose from. If you are looking to sell your furniture or if you're not picky than it's worth visiting. There is always plenty of parking and the staff is helpful.
