At Greatest Adventures Miniature Golf, an Egyptian sphinx, a towering dragon, and a waterfall cave present fun challenges for anyone from casual mini golfers to skilled putters competing in the US Pro Mini Golf Association, which has been hosted at the 36-hole facility. The USPMGA rated facility showcases two distinct 18-hole courses, both with their own themes and characters. Knights and a giant dragon roam the grounds of the medieval course, whereas a giant ape heckles players as they putt around Egyptian structures at the jungle course. In 2011, the USPMGA invited players to put their skills to the test at Greatest Adventures Miniature Golf for the US Open Championship. Though competition was fierce, the then-16-year-old Olivia Prokopova took home the win with her precise shots, determined swing, and ability to pick out the luckiest color golf ball.

The Phone Doctors have heard many reasons for phones being damaged—from customers dropping them on the ground to customers using them as a projectile after a mountain lion showed up on their front porch. In light of these and the many other stories the Phone Doctors' repair team hears, its techs continually train to keep pace with the rapidity of mobile-device releases and the steady stream of repair orders they receive daily from customers across the United States.
Experienced with virtually every manufacturer and carrier, the technicians perform repairs that range from touchscreen replacement to water-damage recovery. In addition to in-house repairs, they also furnish gadget owners with do-it-yourself kits that include specialized tools such as pentalobe screwdrivers and needles and thread. Further resources include online repair guides and patented magnetic ScrewMats, earning Phone Doctors praise on TreeHugger for "empowering people to do their own repairs."
In addition to its six retail locations, which accept both drop-off and mail-in orders, Phone Doctors spans to about 20 affiliate repair centers across the United States, each staffed by technicians trained by the Phone Doctors' team.

Owned by the Raghani family, Majestic Gems strives to become familiar with its clients' tastes in order to recommend the best pieces. Staffers reach into glass display cases to pull out rings, necklaces, and earrings that sparkle with gemstones from around the world, including diamonds, sapphires, topaz, and alexandrites. Meanwhile, jewelers help customers identify the perfect stone?for engagement rings and more?from a vast selection of loose diamonds, varying in cut, color, clarity, and carat.
The stores also carry signature brands such as David Yurman designs, Chamilia beads for charm bracelets, and Seiko watches. Experienced professionals provide repairs and appraise pieces of jewelry, including rings that, according to family lore, were forged in dragon fire. And while you're getting a clasp fixed or checking out an emerald pendant, ask the clerk for some tips on local tourist attractions, like Branson shows or tours of the Alaskan wilderness.
