I originally went here for a meeting and realized what a large place this actually was despite being tucked away near Findley Lake, NY. It is right across the border from Pennsylvania and convenient to a number of locations. The resort facilities are nice, they have an outdoor hot tub which is nice in the winter, and an indoor pool. Among their winter activities, they have snow tubing and skiing. Their slopes are well maintained and the ski lodge is nice. There is another location tucked away on a side of the slopes where you can stop in for a hot drink on a cold day. Nice facility.
You can tell that the pastries and baked good in this shop are baked fresh daily and have not been sitting around. The place smells wonderful and it makes it very easy to pick up all you need for a meeting or for a breakfast when you have guests. The chocolate croissants and the poppy streudel are delicious and I keep returning to pick them up every couple weeks. The prices are wonderful, too.
On a number of occasions, I came to Eastway Lanes to bowl. They offer a class in conjunction with some of the other local colleges and universities and also have leagues that come in to bowl. Open bowl is fun at this bowling lane. The alley is well maintained and they offer skill levels and alterations for any level.
My building received their flowers from this florist each week, so I was able to see their range of seasons, colors, and artful arrangement. Their flowers always looked as fresh a week later as they did on the first day they arrived. They sometimes incorporated unique touches such as artichokes to change the design. I can not speak to the prices, but their arrangements are beautiful.
For first time homebuyers, this branch of Long and Foster was such an easy company to deal with. Our agent listened to what we had in mind, made suggestions, and showed us dozens of homes. Within the branch, they had multiple agents and also a mortgage consultant. They had good suggestions for home inspectors and they were not too pushy but yet were extremely helpful in showing us how the market worked. We were lucky enough to get the first house we bid on!
In my experience, I did not like this Ford dealership. I went to buy a car and found the salesperson pushy. They of course did not want me to look at other dealerships and led me to believe I was walking out of a good deal. So I went to another nearby dealership. I looked at the same make and model car with more features, less pushy salespersons, and for over $1000 less. I had a better experience elsewhere.
Packed into this tiny shop are basic art supplies - paints, brushes, markers, colored pencils, canvas, and drawing paper to name a few. The range of quality is basically lower grade and high grade - there are not a lot of options. For picking up basic supplies, this art supply store is convenient. If you are looking for something very specific, you are probably better off looking at a larger store. The store in general is broken into two sections - half is art supplies and half is a toy store.
This store probably has a gift for every occasion. The pieces in here are one of a kind and the workmanship is superb. Each handcrafted mug, cutting board, jewelry piece, or chess set is beautifully crafted of some of the most unique materials. The prices really range, but seem well priced for the type of item - hand made by local and national artisans. Worth a trip even if it is just to check out the fabulous works!
This aquarium is one of the best I have been to on the East Coast. They have their permanent exhibits and then they usually have one wing or so that rotates out and they bring in special showcases. A year ago they had a special sea horse exhibit that was fascinating. It is located right near the inner harbor, so there is a lot to do in the surrounding area. Tickets are reasonable and they let people in at particular times. This is definitely something to check out in the inner harbor area. Well maintained.
A paint your own pottery and glass art studio that holds open paint times and also classes. You go in and choose a piece of greenware (unpainted and unglazed) pottery and sit at one of the tables. There are idea books to look through for ideas and when ready, you choose your colors, sponges, brushes and get to work. You pay for studio time and for the piece you choose. When you are finished, you leave the piece there and it is fired and later you can pick it up. On some nights they run specials. A neat alternative to other activities.
