Sunview Miniature Golf is located on Route 99 and sometimes I'll just drive up to Erie so I can play this couse. It's really a beautiful course and has waterfalls and fairly hard greens. The holes are full of all that fun stuff that might appeal to children because it's almost like a grown up classy course. Of course children will still have plenty of fun all the same, but it's challenging enough for adults to enjoy themselves. They have nice facilities there too for an ice cream or if you need a bathroom.
This is a great starting place if you have become unemployed or are starting a job search. They have free services that can help locate employers or employees even for you. They also have a number of seminars and workshops that teach things like resume writing and interview skills. There database is fairly simple to use and the people there have always been willing to show me how to find something.
I have bought gas here, a car wash, dinner, groceries and even gotten a flu shot, this place has it all. First off I love that they have free air to pump up your tires with. To many places charge a stupid .25, but I guess your safety on the road means more to Sandy's.
The food is actually very good at this place. It's served cafeteria style and they always have some great dishes to choose from including a great Ben Roethein"burger" in honor of Pittsburgh QB Big Ben. They have a good special on cold cuts and cheeses in a seperate part of the store and carry some specialty brands of items you can't find most places. What else do they have--try a bakery, pharmacy and produce. And it's located in a great location downtown.
I've never spent the night here just because Hey my house is down the street. But I'm still tempted because of the stories. They say the hotel is haunted and if you visit make sure you check out the book they sell at the front desk,. All the ghost are friendly, except the "chef" (a ghost I'm referring to, not the actual chef), so stay out of the kitchen.
Local groups have worked hard to restore this more than 100 year old hotel and have been doing a nice job on the rooms. It's only open in the summer because it has no heat, but is a great stay for a cheap family vacation with some old world charm.
I have always been pleased with the HUmane Society. I adopted a cat from them a long time ago. Just a great pet. The humane society had her all cleaned up and gave her a flea bath. The idiot working the counter however gave me flea prevention drops made for dogs. When I asked him if this would be safe for a cat he said sure, just use a drop. A drop poisoned the cat and I was at the Vets office that night trying to save the cat. The HUmane Society did cover half the cost of this bill when I told them the story, but said I had some personal responsibilty because I didn't follow the products label. This upset my wife, but I thought it was fair.
Overall I've been happy with the Humane Society and would adopt from there again. I might just be a little more cautious next time about the advice I receive.
I've taken my pet here before and they were great people. I don't normally used these folks just because they are out of town from Meadville. But in my dealings with them I realize they are a great group of people. For example a state trooper was called by another woman who found a dog left to die on the side of the road. The trooper called the Vet after hours. He came in, did the work to get the dog back on the feet with no idea if the bill would ever be covered. Give a big thumbs up to the Pennsylvania State Police trooper because she paid the bill.
Dr. Butters and his staff are very friendly people. They made me feel comfortable in an otherwise akward situation. Butters seems ompetent and he is no non-sense. Pretty much straight to business. I found him to be a little rough for the area he was exploring but then I've never had any Dr. work down there before. My only complanit is that he is a urologist. My problem turned out to be something different, but he seemed to look at it as just as a urologist. I ended up diagnosing the Hernia myself and called another Dr. who said, yup it's a Hernia, let's operate.
The Meadville Market House, built in 1870, is the oldest market house in continuous use in Pennsylvania. The market also houses the Meadville Council on the Arts. The Meadville Market House has been touted as "a fine example and one of the few preserved examples of early markets" in North America.
The building is just a nice tourist destination in downtown MEadville next to the renovated Kepler Hotel. They have community events here like Taste of Meadville, but this place has become an excellent Farmer's Market during the summer. Great prices and many community minded farmers who grow organic foods sell here. Inside on the top floor they have a cute little gallery and downstairs are mostly craft items. There is a bakery and restaraunt inside as well. French Creek PRoject has taken over the management of the Market HOuse and seem to have the place going in the right direction meeting the needs of people looking for locally made food.
This place has some of the most delicious meat locally. I try to keep this local store owner in business and my only complaint is that he is located in Vernon Township (the next town over from Meadville) and not at a location closer to the Market House (great venue during summer for fruits and vegies). He has a lot of his own creations there along with the standard cuts of meat. I've bought their bacon and it was just terrific. They are very helpful too in manking recommendations if they don't have exactly what you're looking for. Such as salt pork. Tough to find around here. But they made an effort to make another recommendation for teh recipe and it worked out fine.
Everyone I know uses this guy and that's because he is the only local chimney sweep in the area. But he does a good job so that I don't mind. It's important to book him before you get into heating season because as you can imagine many people wait to the last minute. George also can make repairs in fire places. He replaced a flue crank that had broken off in my fire place and did an excellent job. The most important thing is that George is clean. He doesn't track this black junk all through your house but lays down mat even from your fire place to the front door in case he has to go back to his truck.
