The verdant displays of flowers, plants, and seasonal, locally grown produce at Gold Coast Landscape & Garden Center form a veritable feast for the senses. Trees, perennials, and annuals from growers such as Overdevest Nurseries, Monrovia, and Endless Summer fill the center’s many planters and pots, sharing space with in-season tomatoes and strawberries. The gardening staff helps visitors to create their own vegetable gardens with these tasty fruits and can even lend their expertise to designing backyard ponds. Inside, a farm market further piques appetites with its selection of steaks, salad dressings, and gourmet cheeses freshly picked from the tree.
Inside Wellington Martial Arts Academy’s well-lit studio, instructors teach students 4 and older how to strike with their fists, feet, elbows, and knees as they practice muay thai, a combat sport from Thailand.

Timothy's Center for Gardening started in 1965 as a small vegetable farm stand that grew its own produce. Over the years, it evolved into a one-stop gardening center for plants, landscape supplies, pots, and lighting. Grab a bag of cedar mulch to inhibit weed growth or protect your young trees in the winter and a selection of colorful flowers to plant in the spring.
Like leaves on a tree, Dragonfly Farms changes color with the seasons. Owners Patrick and Judy Lapide transform their show rooms to highlight new plants and flowers, home furnishings, and gardening supplies, applying vivid coats of paint and themed backdrops to complement their wares. In addition to greenery and home decor, they offer winemaking supplies and equipment—rendering fermented sips more easily than stomping on beaded fruit.
Not much has changed at Fink Flowers & Gifts in the last half a century. The fragrant boutique still has the same address it did when it opened in 1956. It’s still manned by the same family that's been filling vases, wrangling stuffed animals, and arranging scrumptious gift baskets for three generations. It’s this consistency that has kept guests coming back for all their floral needs, as well as greeting cards, candles, and original paintings by Artists of Bristol on the Delaware. First-timers to the shop step into what feels like a scene out of a fairy tale. Dotted with vivid butterflies, winding vines crisscross the boutique's ceiling, suspended above shelves crowded with vibrant bouquets and eclectic seasonal displays. The staff invites visitors to recycle by bringing empty vases, wicker baskets, or farm-raised piñatas to the shop; the empty vessels can be exchanged for a free loose bunch of flowers.
