For three generations and 65 years, family members have been helping clients find perfectly fitting pairs of shoes at Ente's Shoe Salon. They've lasted this long because of their dedication to extraordinary service. Staff members make a point of stocking unusual sizes, from women's sizes 4 to 12 as well as narrower shoes for tiny feet. They don't stick to just one style, either. Instead, they offer everything from Uggs to towering heels and sensible dress shoes. When stocking their shelves, they pick top-quality shoe brands, such as Frye boots, FitFlops, and Prevata.
By The Sea Inn & Spa pampers patrons with charming guest suites and a full-service spa in a 19th-century colonial estate. Patrons can choose from three rooms, each equipped with a quilt-laden bed outfitted with overstuffed pillows, a private bath, and hardwood floors. The Cottage room ensconces guests in powder-blue hues and invites them to relax on a queen-size bed or in a claw-foot tub, ideal for body-soaking or making a bathtub-style carrot stew. Horticulture-minded guests can select the floral-themed Garden room, which houses a carved-oak king-size bed, and those in the mood for romance can stay in the Queen Ann room, named after the first queen of Delaware, fully stocked with a four-post mahogany king-sized bed and a Jacuzzi tub. Hotel visitors are invited to a daily breakfast from 7:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m. every morning and can relax on the inn's flower-friendly deck or in the reading lounge, bedecked with antique antiques and overstuffed wicker couches and side chairs.
Lord & Taylor has been outfitting the sartorially savvy since George Washington Taylor and Samuel Lord founded it in 1826. Most know it as the department store that slings apparel, accessories, and beauty products culled from runways and name-brand studios. But others know its best-kept secrets: experts at some beauty counters pamper clients with age-defying facials, and certain locations' onsite restaurants provide the perfect spot to refuel after a day of shopping.

The team at Wilton Dental Associates believes that there’s no reason a person can’t smile with their natural teeth for their entire lifetime. Dr. Van Strait and his associates back up this optimistic viewpoint with an agreement that, if the patient follows a preventative program—offered alongside modern restorative and cosmetic techniques—the practice will back all of their services with a written guarantee.
Wilton Dental Associates' two offices both resemble comfortable family homes from the outside. Inside, they're full of leather furniture in cheery hues and awash in natural light. Dental technicians have plenty of other tricks up their sleeves to make patients comfortable: the innovative DentalVibe injection-comfort system gently stimulates the nerves at the injection site to close the pain gate so that anesthesia glides in with as little notice as a middle child’s birthday.
Blue Back Dental's pair of presiding dentists, Drs. Edward Molyneaux and Theodore Wu, lead their team of teeth technicians in keeping mouths pristine with a wide range of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental services.
