Founded and operated by students and recent graduates, WOW Tours Inc. has been ferrying college kids from across the country to Panama City Beach since 2009. For weeks on end, DJs spin booming dance music at massive parties that sprawl across 27 miles of sparkling white sand. Besides providing transportation and accommodations for a weeklong stay, WOW Tours puts together party packages to ensure that there’s something to do every night so its guests won’t need to resort to learning anything.
University Moving & Storage and RS Moving & Storage offer busy relocators convenient, expedient assistance in transporting their worldly possessions. The hour of van rental and service easily accommodates new college students wishing to lessen the twin stresses of adapting to academia and forcing fidgety futons to sit still. The companies' spacious vans pick up within 75 miles of Athens or Atlanta, conveying precious cargo securely thanks to background-checked staff and full insurance. All movers are permanent employees rather than day laborers, allowing relocating residents to relax while their effects are transported up the stairs, past the swinging blades, and down the narrow tubes of their questionably designed new residences. Groupon-holders receive a 20 percent discount on any additional moving costs, making it affordable to bring an extended family of Alf lunchboxes to live with you.
At more than 1,000 Mattress Firm locations around the country, shoppers sink into plush mattresses, recline on firm beds, and belly-flop onto pillow tops. Knowledgeable staffers can help customers create an ideal bedtime environment by dispensing advice based on sleep preferences and illuminating the difference between the many kinds of mattresses. And to the delight of their customers, much of Mattress Firm's bedding wears the label of a premium brand, such as Sealy, Serta, Simmons Beautyrest, or Stearns & Foster.
Gangs of ottomans and mattresses populate Atlantic Bedding and Furniture, whose continually changing designs from Coaster, Forbidden City, Harden, Sealy, Old Town Imports, and other top brands help customers capture the furniture species of their choice sans long waiting periods. Treat hard-working eye awnings to a decadent break with a solid hardwood Leonardo bed ($347–$516), backed by a strong, modern headboard the color of morning espresso but the flavor of tufted upholstery. Taking home a Davenport nightstand ($125) means never having to precariously perch glasses or bequeathed dentures on thin windowsills.
