Congers Bike Shop has been pairing its clients with new and used bicycles for more than 30 years. The shop’s longevity is partially due to a staff of experts that knows its fleet of bikes inside and out, and considers the age and skill level of customers before picking out bikes, accessories, and racks. So locals and visitors alike can explore the area’s state parks, lakes, and UFO-landing sites, they also lend out bikes and helmets to rent for full-day adventures.
Perfect 10 Services’ staff of beauty gurus pampers and prettifies male and female guests with nail, waxing, and makeup services. Trained technicians carefully eradicate facial fuzz and body bristles with waxing treatments, and permanent makeup applications fashion rosy cheeks without the pain of constant pinching or the discomfort of coating them in strawberry jam. Nail beds are nurtured during relaxing mani-pedis, which can be customized with paraffin-wax treatments, personalized nail art and airbrushing, and gel enhancements.
Bounce! Trampoline Sports proves that learning to dunk a basketball is not a matter of practice and persistence, but of location. On the slam-dunk court, preteens can achieve the same amount of air time as pro stars, dropping the ball into the net before landing safely on the springy floor. The court is one of five inside the trampoline gym, which covers 25,000 square feet—including the sloped walls—with elastic surface. These antigravity zones allow for freeform flips and bounds as well as games and activities. Dodge-ball teams lob soft spheres at each other in midjump, and low-impact aerobics classes condition students through energizing leaps. The center also caters to skateboarders and snowboarders, who can rehearse their tricks without worrying about hard falls or the harsh critiques of a nearby Sasquatch.
During open bounce time, the gym welcomes guests of all ages to test its cushy amenities, all of which are supervised by staff and protected by various safety measures. Bounce! Jr., a separate area for youngsters aged 6 and younger, boasts its own miniature version of the main courts' foam pit, as well as an inflatable obstacle course. Group events range from birthday parties to corporate gatherings, and an arcade allows friends to take breaks from the hopping grounds. All of these features have helped Bounce! to garner considerable press—its trampolines have been seen on Today and as far away as Japan on Tokyo TV.
