This pharmacy is located in down-town Mason City, so it's a very conveniant place to get your prescriptions filled. They also sell a variety of over the counter medications and first aid supplies. However, it is quite a small store. It's a pharmacy only, so they do not sell toiletries, make-up, school supplies, etc. like the typical drugstore.
If you have never been to a Graeters, and you are in the Cincinnati area, get up from your computer and go right now! I adore ice cream, and have tried different kinds all over the US, and in several other countries as well. Graeters is the best, bar none. It is rich, creamy and delicious. If you like chocolate, then don't mess around with any of the flavors without chocolate chips, because the chips are the bes part. They have huge chunks of soft, melty chocolate in them. My personal favorite is black raspberry chip. Some of the flavors of the month are to die for as well. Graeters also sells candies, some bakery items, ice cream cakes, etc. These are good too. But the ice cream is the thing. If you are an unfortunate soul who does not live near a Graeters you can mail order it, packed in dry ice. Expensive but worth it, if you need a fix.
We lived here for about a year, and felt it was fine: nothing to get excited about, but no big minuses either. It was conveniantly located to the Conocordia Theological Seminary, and also to Glenbrook Mall. They gave a rental discount for good grades, which was great. Also, the deposit was cheap. Our unit could have used new carpeting, and it faced a fairly busy road, so the traffic noises could be a little annoying at times. Some of the neighbors tended to be noisy as well. The management was generally quite helpful though, and maintenance responses were prompt.
My husband and I went here on our honey moon. It was a great experience! This is the only bath house on old bath house row that is still operational. The experience was great, and left us feeling very pampered and relaxed. All the old, traditional fixtures also kind of give you a sense of a different time It was so much fun, and we especially enjoyed getting massages! We also thought the prices were extremely reasonable.
This antique mall is pretty large, and has a lot of booths for different dealers. Primarily they sell lots of smaller houseware items and collectables as opposed to furniture. You will find some furniture, too mixed in with the rest. Be prepared to wander and look through a lot of stuff.
I was really surprised at the selection at this Russell Stover outlet. I was expecting your basic samplers, but they had candy made right in the store, as well as a variety of new kinds of Russel Stover candies as well. There is a new line of premium chocolates that compare to specialty chocolates like Godiva, but are much cheaper. The store also sells hand-dipped Edy's ice cream. Don't forget to get a sample on your way in!
I love my childhood library, and have fond memories of story hour here. It is a beautiful old building in downtown Newburgh with a great view of the river. It's a great place to study. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Sadly they are closing the top level (with the best views!) and turning it into offices when they open the new library. Thankfully they are keeping this downtown Newburgh branch open, and the new library should be a wonderful resource.
I have been to this store with my video-game playing husband, and even ventured there on my own to buy him gifts. They have a really good selection of used video games. We have pretty much always been able to find what we wanted. Plus they have a good trade in program. Generally my husband will trade in a couple of old games to get a different one at next to nothing.
These candies are delicious. My favorites are the maple creams. Personally I prefer the dark chocolate, but my mom likes the milk. If you've never had Libs candies, you're missing out on an a great Evansville tradition, and these are just like I remember from when I was a kid. We gave them to out-of-towners who came for my wedding and they were a big hit.
UTD is a rapidly growing school. It has only been a 4-year university for about 10 years now, but it has set high admissions standards and offers a lot of opportunities. It has the advantages of being a much smaller university community and also of being located in the Metroplex, so there are many work and cultural opportunities. I spent 4 years here as an undergrad, and found my classes and peers to be intellectually stimulating.Go Comets!
