Sacks on the Beach serves up fresh breakfast and lunch dishes mere blocks from the Pacific Ocean, inviting diners to savor meals as they smell the ocean breeze.

Inside Deep Roots Garden Center's tidy shop, a team of knowledgeable green thumbs help customers select plants, flowers, shrubbery, and accessories to beautify gardens. Four-inch annuals and perennials ($1.99–$5.99) add pops of color to flowerbeds and 1- and 5-gallon-sized plants ($8.99–$49.99) provide shelter for rapidly expanding bunny families. Larger trees and shrubs ($100–$150) come in drought-tolerant varietals that require minimal maintenance, and hearty succulents and cacti make even the most forgetful plant parent proud with their hearty resilience. The garden center also offers floral-arrangement services, creating one-of-a-kind bouquets and outfitting gentlemen with single roses ($5 each) to gift to their fastest racehorses.
The florists at Boulevard Florist Wholesale Market outfit patrons with tropical flowers, hanging baskets, and floral equipment to beautify their dwellings. Their boston ferns and caladium plants impress visitors with their fecund green leaves, and purple chrysanthemums or roses add color to kitchens not already covered in tomato sauce. The staffers also deliver blooms, and impart their green-thumbing knowledge during floral-design classes held across two weekend days or 90 minutes.
Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
