Deanna and Renee's memories of childhood are bathed in the warm, nostalgic glow of bustling family celebrations nourished by Northern Italian dishes and homemade wine. So influential were these culinary family traditions that the sisters banded together in adulthood to share their love of fine dining and their hometown with visitors from across the globe. Thus Old Towne Orange Walking Food Tours was born, a venture that enables the pair to shepherd curious foodies and history buffs of all ages through Old Towne Orange during their meticulously planned culinary walking tours.
The leisurely paced tours introduce guests to the town’s diverse selection of bistros, bakeries, and farmers' markets via numerous stops to sample house specialties. The Orange Sampler Tour introduces palates to the panoply of cuisines in the county –from heirloom tomato salad to french baked potato soup.
Housed in a cozy 1920s home, Dragonfly Shops & Gardens stocks an eclectic variety of works created by local artisans and hosts DIY classes for all ages. In the beading basics class ($30 plus materials, which start at $2), beaders band together for two hours on Tuesday mornings to complete projects ranging from earrings and necklaces to bracelets and ultra-feminine beer helmets. A beginner's mosaic tiling class ($55 plus $20 for materials) teaches creatives of all levels of skill and glee in smashing tiles to compose one-of-a-kind picture frames, trays, and stepping stones. Or delve into the dirt with a class on growing edible flowers and greens ($10 plus $5 for materials). Attendees can sip fresh coffee or cool lemonade.

The customers in Atlanta are too busy auditioning for the next season of America's Next Top Model to review Glamour Shots, but some Citysearchers in other states found a few minutes to sing its praises:
- Although I was skeptical at first…I decided to go in, not opt for the airbrushing, and just take professional looking photos for my business. Not only was it EXTREMELY FUN, but the results were absolutely amazing!!! By no means would I ever consider myself an attractive man…but when I got my photos, I felt attractive. I felt good about myself. The staff was very professional, very fun, very good at what they do. – businessboy, Citysearch San Diego
