Bliss Beauty Lounge’s experienced stylists and aestheticians depend on years of bodycare experience and professional-quality treatments to dramatically transform the appearance of their clients' hair and nails. Stylists snip custom looks and slather manes with vitamin-packed haircare products, some of which are vegan and gluten-free. At their stations, nail techs treat digits to french manicures and pedicures before capping nails in polish or gel designs that sparkle brighter than a firefly playing with matches. Other services include facial waxing, highlights, and thermal straightening, a chemical process that can transform curly hair into smooth, flowing locks for up to a year.

In 1990, the owners of Summerfield Farm set aside part of their grounds and turned it into a zoo. Since then, they have introduced countless visitors to some 200- plus animals: monkeys, camels, zebras, and mountain lions, just to name a few. While Summerfield offers a unique, intimate viewing experience to guests across its 17-acre facility, the staff also showcases up-close interactions during animal encounter presentations. Summerfield Zoo also has a petting zoo, and visitors can ride ponies and feed baby goats with bottles.

With its cozy decor and absence of ominous cages, The Dog Waggin’s welcoming facility gives busy pet owners peace of mind as their pups comfortably socialize and play. The 4,000-square-foot digs house a play room with pooch playground equipment—including slides and tunnels—a relaxing play room—characterized by fluffy pet beds—and a backyard, where dogs can caper about or stretch out and bronze their bods in time for swimsuit season. Pups are free to rest and play as they see fit with their fellow boarders, all under staff supervision during daytime outings and overnight stays. The canine caretakers also offer a number of other services, including walking, in-home sitting, and training from owner and certified dog trainer Lisa Harvey.
The professional staff at Central Bark draws on extensive training in animal behavior and doggy first aid to entertain, pamper, and groom canine companions. The daycare's full regimen of stimulating activities and socialization cut down on negative tendencies such as barking, chewing, and truancy; a thorough behavioral assessment judges each dog's compatibility for group play. Hardworking pooch handlers supervise dogs at all times to ensure safety and perform checks for ticks and fleas before any animal is allowed to mingle. A hefty supply of toys, Kongs, and tennis balls keep animals entertained, and regularly scheduled naps—replete with classical music and aromatherapy—ensure dogs get healthful doses of rest and cultivate palates for Mozart.
