Cinderella Dance’s energetic instructors call on years of experience in the fields of dance, acrobatics, and pageantry as they guide mother-child duos through basic somersaults and shimmies during one-hour Mommy and Me Tumbling classes. Children aged 16–35 months can join their progenitors in fun, physical activities spanning four weekly sessions, in which an array of exercises and graceful tumbles introduces youth to the foundations of fitness and discourages them from future careers as patio-furniture cushion-testers. Small class sizes ensure individual attention, and positive interaction with peers improves social and sharing skills. While flipping and flailing around the studio, children should wear leotards, stretchy shorts, and footless tights, and mothers may dig out their old spandex wedding dresses.
Hamlin Pharmacy and Fountain is one of the last holdouts of bygone era. Open since 1960, the combination pharmacy, soda fountain, and gift shop treats its guests as treasured friends, just like a small-town shop should. The pharmacists prepare prescriptions and dispense over-the-counter remedies to keep people healthy and happy. Meanwhile, at the other end of the shop, another kind of happiness is brewing. An old-fashioned soda fountain and diner?complete with aqua-blue seats and formica countertops?serves up burgers, hot dogs, milkshakes, and sundaes that plaster smiles on faces at mealtime. Furthermore, the One Love Bakery team creates sugar cookies, pies, and strawberry shortcake that provide a sweet ending to a filling lunch. Complete your trip by taking home candles or bath products, which can soothe minds agitated by cravings for extra chili cheese fries.
Pair up with a pal or loved one for an escape to the quaint and sunny L'Aroma Café, where skilled baristas steep imported teas and steam espressos with the level of care seen among ex-plumbers in belt shops. Glass-top tables fog up under mugs of freshly brewed drip coffee and espresso concoctions, and teas sourced from Sri Lanka fill the air with scents of jasmine, spiced chai, and mango. Other beverages range from hot chocolate and chai lattes to zesty apple cider, and L'Aroma can serve any coffee drink on ice, decaffeinated, or in a miniature replica of the local water tower. Fresh pastries and other desserts beckon tongues from behind the café's glass counter. French macaroons wave-down taste buds with buttercream icing and tea bread spells out invites with apricots and pecans.

As a young man, Dan Foss experienced first hand the way chiropractic treatments could be an effective alternative to traditional Western medicine. When his mother refused to have her third-grade son medicated with muscle relaxants, she swept him across the street to the local chiropractor. After a few painless adjustments, his injured neck was back to normal, and as Dan says, "from that day forward I wanted to study everything I could about chiropractic."
Today, he is Doctor of Chiropractic Dan Foss, and he has practiced more than 12 chiropractic techniques across three continents, culminating with the opening of Pura Vida Chiropractic in 2010. Combining quick chiropractic adjustments, thorough consultations, and wellness advice, Dr. Foss hopes to improve the overall lifestyles of each client, especially the ones who limbo professionally or maybe just those that need to get past the kitchen table whenever it's in the way.
