Jaws snap and claws scratch at Crocodile Encounter. Families, school groups, and aspiring zookeepers can enjoy the city's largest reptile show or explore its animalian encampment, meeting massive Aldabra tortoises, alligators from Texas, and Siamese crocodiles, along with pigs, capybara, and eland. To finish off this adventure, guests can pet a live alligator and feel its bumpy skin or watch as it devours a meal.
Since 1973, Columbia Lakes Resort has spoiled putters with a sprawling 7,000-yard 18-hole course and luxurious accommodations nestled within 2,000 acres of woodland. Power architect Tom Fazio designed the course, which weaves through tall oaks, around lagoons, and beside a 300-acre lake swimming with trophy bass amid an elaborate underwater city constructed from clubs flung away in frustration. Perfect your putt on one of the four practice greens, including a furrowed chipping and putting green and a green with a bunker for practicing sand shots or building sculptures of your friends using golf balls for eyes. Players can also practice on the driving range, stocked with five target greens and four tee areas.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
