Though Martinizing Dry Cleaning can boast of its being one of the largest dry-cleaning franchise in the United States, each locally owned store offers the same customer service and care that its first shop prided itself on upon opening in 1949. From the time it enters the store, a garment is thoroughly inspected more than six times as it goes through the process of dry cleaning, laundering, or mud caking for those who refuse all trends—such as cleanliness—in fashion. The technicians separate items that need to be laundered from those that should be dry-cleaned and offer special cleaning services for bulky items, such as comforters, and fragile pieces, such as leather, suede, and wedding gowns. For clients needing their duds in time for an important occasion, the shop also offers same-day service.
More than two decades ago, Angy Ford, the owner of Bravo Arts Academy, taught her first piano lesson. In the years that followed, Angy’s student base steadily grew, taking over her home-studio space and filling it with noise like a college roommate with no conception of personal space. Angy was heartened by this positive response and overwhelmed by the number of students knocking at her door, so she moved her operation to its current Ogden studio space, which, like the home studio that came before, has continued to expand. Here, Angy couples her bread-and-butter music classes with a host of other engaging pursuits—from art classes to dance lessons—that help kids develop confidence, coordination, and artistic skills. The academy’s facilities invite tots to tumble over thick foam, ballerinas to pirouette over a floating marley floor, and pianists to tickle the ivories in a group setting.
Broken down by age group, the academy’s offerings include preschool, where classes are kept small and incorporate sign language into the curriculum, and extends all the way to private music lessons for adults. Angy models her daycare after the best practices she observed while visiting more than 50 childcare centers, encouraging creativity and learning rather than running infants through daily gauntlets of strength.

Named after the cowboy term for the corral of working horses required for long cattle drives, Remuda Golf Course pays homage to the region's roots with an 18-hole course framed by the rugged peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Each hole bears the name of a particular breed of horse, letting golfers brush up on their equestrian trivia without having to pack a Lone Ranger boxset in their golf bag. In addition to its Western flair, the 6,352-yard, par 72 course is distinct in that its most difficult hole is a par-three, the 217-yard sixth hole. Guarded by sandtraps on the left and a soft front that will keep short tee shots from bounding onto the putting surface, the hole will require many players to reach for a 3-wood to reach the green in regulation. Before tackling the course's challenging terrain, golfers can warm up at the practice green and a driving range with covered hitting bays.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 6,352 yards from the tips * Four tee options * Scorecard
