The scene is a familiar one: hotel guests lounge beside the outdoor pool as staff members filter around, offering refreshments or collecting clients for a spa treatment. However, at Pet Paradise, the pool is bone shaped and all the guests are dogs. This luxurious scene is one cat and dog owners can find at this boarding and daycare facility that has been owner Fred Goldsmith's pride and joy for a decade. The animal lover was inspired to start his own pet hotel when he simply couldn’t find a place he was comfortable leaving his bichon frise when he went on vacation.
Fred made Pet Paradise to his exact specifications, and the pet hotel's amenities reflect the loving care he lavishes on his own beloved pup. Dogs and cats can luxuriate in spa-quality grooming treatments or burn off some energy during group playtime. In the evening, pets can settle into plush bedding and feel safe knowing that the dedicated live-in staff resides just a bark away. Nocturnal kitties spend the night exploring their own private six-level cat condos while gentle spa music fills the air to keep them entertained. In case of any emergencies, Pet Paradise keeps veterinarians on-call, and in the event of a snack emergency, each staff member is a certified bacon cook.

The Euro American School of Aviation certifies professional pilots with its top-notch fleet, as well as its own buildings, hangars, simulators, and more. With this deal, you'll get a 30-minute trip soaring above the Earth's staid surface in a Cessna 150, letting aspiring Charles Lindberghs gain first-time experience in cloud maneuvering. A friendly, experienced instructor will provide basic tutelage on how various pedals, levers, and flashing red "do not press unless inside a volcano" buttons work. After the aeronautic adventure, pupils receive a ground-school class, where their brains will be reacclimated to normal air pressure and filled with additional info on the basics of aviation. The class is intended as the first step in a greater vocational education, with many students eventually going on to careers with elite airlines.
Inside Barone's NY Pizza & Brew, pizzas fill the air with aromas that speak of mozzarella, italian sausage, meatballs, and jalapeños. Specialty pies call attention to their New York style with honorary titles such as The Statue of Liberty, with mashed potatoes and bacon, and The Bronx Bomber, with steak, green peppers, and onions. But these pizzas are only part of the feast Barone's chefs spread. In addition to tossing toppings onto dough discs, they stuff them into calzones named after Sylvester Stallone, Frank Sinatra, and Picasso. And they use Amoroso rolls as a foundation for hot subs, which come slathered in marinara or tossed in buffalo sauce and feature names such as The Betsy Ross—a colorful mélange of sausage, onions, and peppers honoring the person who made the first American flag.
