The Owyhee Plaza Hotel is located in downtown Boise. Everything you need is within walkign distance. The hotel is very old and historic but it has been updated and renovated. There are two great restaurants - one is fancy and the other is more casual. The rates are reasonable and you can find some pretty good deals. The staff is wonderful and will go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. They are ready to provide you with a lot of suggestions of what to do and where to go in Boise.
The Statehouse Inn is located close to downtown Boise. There are standard hotel rooms and jacuzzi suites. The rooms expose you to amazing views of downtown or the valley. Weekend rates come with complimentary breakfast. There is also a free shuttle service to and from the airport. There is a very nice restaurant that is perfect for banquets and parties. The staff is very professional and friendly. Prices are extremely reasonable!
No matter how many trips you take to this museum you will never see it all! You will see works by some of the most famous artists in the world. The special exhibits are constantly updated. I suggest getting a list of the exhibits in advance so you can select those you are particularly interested in. You should count on spending the good majority of a day here. There is something for everyone! Admission is a donation but almost everyone pays it.
I waited for months for an appointment at this spa. I wasn't all that impressed with the interior decor. It was extremely busy with customers which impeded the relaxed atmosphere. I got a facial and an upper body massage. I loved the facial. The massage was ok. The room was chilly which made me feel uncomfortably cold after a while. The prices are very expensive and I don't think you get your moneys worth. The anesthetician was very nice and good. The rest of the staff was a little pushy and tried to force their products on me.
This resort reminds me of an old fashioned resort. The hotel looks like an old fashioned cabin. The interior is very well kept but not modern. There is no airconditioning and no televisions. But, there is a lot to do on the premises. I really enjoyed hiking on the beautiful trails. The views from the top of the mountain were amazing. There is a lake for boating and a pool for swimming. The dining hall has wonderful buffet style food. Everyday there is a schedule of indoor and outdoor activities for for kids and adults. I think this place is great for families who want to spend quality time together.
The Empire State Building is one of the first things you must do when you visit New York. The views are amazing and you can really get a feel for the layout of the city. I even suggest going twice - once at night and once during the day. The biggest drawback is the line. During peak tourist times the line can last for hours! Try to visit during the week and in the late afternoon. Also, the winter is not the best time to visit as it is very cold and windy that high up! Overall, this site is worth every penny. I would pass on the 3-D movie though, its not worth it.
Everyone who visits New York City must take the Circle line boat tour. The boat cruises around the island of Manhattan. The views from the boat are amazing! It provides great photo opportunities. There is also a tour guide who broadcasts over a microphone and points out sights along the skyline. The boat pretty much runs year round. The view from the outdoor roof of the boat are the best but in the colder weather, you can ejoy the sights from the inside. The Circle Line is a must do on your next visit to New York.
This yoga studio is located on the top floor of an industrial building in Cranford. The location is less than desirable as it is literally a few feet away from the train tracks. Inevitably, during yoga class, a train passes by and is quite loud and disruptive. The instructors are very good and the classes are never very big - about ten to fifteen students per class. The price per class is reasonable but I suggest paying per month for the best rate.
This scenic resort is located a few miles from historic Williamsburg and Bush Gardens. It is a great place for a golfer to stay! There are 3 championship courses and a par three. The grounds are beautiful! For the non-golfers, there is a pool, fitness center, boating and tennis. The resort's accomodations include standard hotel rooms, condos and homes. There is a pricier restaurant with incredible food and also a more reasonable, but equally delicious, restaurant/pub. If you are looking for a weekend getaway in Virginia this is the place to go!
We've purchased many plants and flowers for our garden from Dreyers over the years. The selection is good. The quality of plants and flowers has always been high. We really have not had a problem with plants from Dreyer's dying out quickly. The cons are the prices are higher than you would find elsewhere probably because its the only place like it in the area. Furthermore, during peak season, the selection gets to be picked over and not replaced very quickly. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful.
