Anchor Boutique owner Laurel Baker hangs handcrafted, upscale jewelry and unconventional accessories like artwork in her sunny, nautical-themed shop. Patrons can peruse multilayered necklaces, leather-and-metal-mixed bracelets, and rings that wrap fingers with never-ending zen metaphors. Shoppers can sport show-stopping eyewear such as vintage '80s sunnies, whose large Hepburn-esque lenses gleam in gold- and red-edged frames ($34), or peruse the gleaming goods tucked under the graceful diving manikin. Tight gold spirals dangle from silver chains like freefalling funambulists on gold-circle-drops earrings ($34), and the pyrite necklace ensnares a shiny jagged stone within a thin gold, silver, or macaroni-noodle chain ($48).

Phantom Fireworks first burst onto the scene more than three decades ago. Today, the company lights up backyards of America from coast-to-coast with more than 1,200 permanent and temporary locations.
Much like its products, Phantom?s employees frequently take to the skies. They travel around the globe in search of the industry's latest ground and aerial displays before returning home with rockets, missiles, fountains, and aerial repeaters. From there, an extensive in-house testing program takes over, checking each item's safety before it?s sold to the public.
That testing program is just one of Phantom?s pillars of safety. The company also holds memberships with multiple pyrotechnics organizations, and it offers customers additional information about fireworks laws and history through its Fireworks University.
Nature Girl's herbalists draw from dozens of herbs and a handmade, organic liquid to create fresh and custom blends that brim with bodily benefits. The over-sized four-ounce infusions ($39.99) contain meticulously blended extracts that distill the curative powers of plant matter into a salutary concoction. The Chill Out remedy harnesses linden flower and chamomile to relieve stress, and the Belly Boost remedy packs a wallop of ginger root, peppermint, and angelica root to erase digestive regrets after pizza-wrapped hot dog binges. Memory Lane is packed with gingko, gotu kola, kava kava, and other clarity and focus promoting ingredients, while Wonder Woman is formulated with schizandra berries, dong quai, black cohosh, motherwort and wild yam as a tonic for peri and menopausal women that is safe for long term use. The remedy brewers infuse each selection with a choice of alcohol, sweet vegetable glycerine, or an apple cider vinegar base densely populated with nutrients. Because each remedy is fresh and custom-blended, Nature Girl requires a two-bottle minimum order, allowing Groupon holders to mix or match their pair of choices.
A not-for-profit initiative of the World Golf Foundation, The World Golf Hall of Fame pays homage to golf's most prolific players with a vast collection of historic artifacts and interactive exhibits. Audio tours narrate the intricacies of more than 175 points of interest, including a life-size replica of the Swilcan Bridge that highlights an exhibit honoring the sport's origins as an ancient Scottish frisbee game. A trip through golf's evolving history culminates in a Trophy Room at the pinnacle of a 110-foot tower, which provides rare glimpses at championship crowns and cups from tournaments such as the Ryder Cup. Outdoors, an 18-hole, natural-grass putting green invites visitors to test their swing in the shadow of golf's finest, complete with a challenge hole that mimics the famous 17th hole at the Tournament Players Club at Sawgrass and awards shots that land on the green with a special limited edition Induction Ceremony print. In its ongoing quest to treat guests to an immersive, larger-than-life experience, The World Golf Hall of Fame is also home to a six-story-tall IMAX screen that inundates the senses with digital surround sound and 3-D displays of full-length and documentary-style films.
