We have used Hot Springs Florist for numerous arrangements and corsages, etc. throughout the years. We have never had anything extraordinarily creative, but the flowers have always been fresh and held up well. Prices are what you expect from a florist in the area.
Dryden makes wonderful pottery on-site. They offer tours, and have a very large showroom of everything from Mugs to planters to serving dishes. Everyone in our family has their own Dryden Mug (personalized) and we have given countless of them as gifts. Not to be missed!
We love staying at the Palmer House. It is a lovely facility and very well located. We prefer to be in the loop rather than Michigan Avenue. We're so close to Fields and many other shops and all the theaters.
We stayed here frequently when our daughter was in school at Vanderbilt. It is very convenient from the campus and the highway. There are lots of good restaurants around. The hotel is in good shape and decently priced.
My daughter took me here for mother daughter manicures. The girls were very nice and did a good job on my not-so-great nails. There is a very relaxing atmosphere with candles and soft music. I plan to try other treatments here.
We love this place! We purchase canisters as gifts each year for the holidays. And sometimes we stop by to sample the different flavors. They have a wide assortment of flavors and decorative tins at reasonable prices.
Our children both attended middle school here, and loved it. The teachers were excellent, and most had been there for a long time (I take it as a good sign when teachers don't move on). There was so much energy and learning happening. And the teachers remember the kids well after they are on to high school. A great learning environment.
This is by no means a luxury hotel, though they seem to think they are at times. We had an extended stay here when we moved to town, and were not overly impressed. The restaurant/bar that is connected is generally very busy, especially evenings and weekends. Fortunately, we were on the opposite side of the property. The hotel is centrally located for the area attractions.
This is an upscale, cutesy children's clothing store. Prices aren't "discount" but they have a great assortment of really fun, adorable outfits for kids.
We bought cars for both our children from Saturn of Carlisle Pike. The sales staff was always friendly, never pushy and they were extremely patient. The service department was also excellent, and I absolutely trust them.
