Since 1930, Toms Creek Nursery and Landscaping has greenafied lawns with vibrant shrubs, trees, and flowering plants grown by Toms' experienced cultivators. Prepare outdoor areas for a spring awakening with Double Knockout roses ($25/2 gallons) or a lush monkey-grass plant ($5/gallon), a flowering perennial that fills out gardens and looks adorable in a small fez. For vertical beautification, a Carolina Beauty crape myrtle ($15/3 gallons, $25/5 gallons) enlivens yards or oversized cocktails with its characteristic purple flowers. The direct-sales nursery also carries 50 acres of container plants and 200 acres of B&B trees and shrubs.
Liberty Bathing Walk-In Tubs' products allow people with mobility and medical issues to safely bathe. Its bathtubs—all made in Thomasville, North Carolina—are affixed with inward- or outward-swinging doors so people need not lift their legs over edges, which can be dangerous when wet. Grab rails further protect bathers from slipping while entering or exiting the tub. Upgrade options include hydrotherapy and whirlpool spa systems. Wheelchair-accessible tubs and walk-in showers are also available, and all of Liberty's products comply with the American with Disabilities Act.

The flight package also includes a tour of the airport facilities at Piedmont Triad International Airport, during which visitors explore the pilot lounge and look around the flight-planning room before receiving a photo of themselves with the aircraft to wear in a locket along with their picture of themselves with a toaster.
