When not busy tending future landscape champs culled from their lush greenhouse plants, Floral Acres' florists furnish stunning floral arrangements. Make a lasting ocular impression with the Delightfully Daisy bouquet, as lavender competes with daisy spray chrysanthemums for face time from the see-through confines of a clear, glass bubble bowl ($29.99+). A vase of white and yellow daisies ushers in upcoming solstices bedecked with a cheery yellow ribbon ($29.99). Floral Acres supplies the flowered greenery for myriad occasions, commemorating milestones ranging from a sister’s new baby to a brother’s new Burger Time high score with specially designed displays.
Through its many expansions, RecPlex has grown into an impressive facility that spans more than 300,000 square feet. Home to two NHL-sized ice rinks, two pools, field house, and suspended track, the multi-faceted center has a little something for athletes of all stripes. While one of the indoor pools is dedicated to swimming lessons along its olympic-proportioned lanes, the other is open to families and kids to explore the indoor water park, take advantage of a huge indoor water slide, and keep any fears of the outdoors hidden for one more day. Visit the 60,000 square-foot field house during open hours to take advantage of the numerous basketball courts and indoor fieldhouse, or join an adult sports league in basketball, softball, and volleyball.
The staff at 2K Adventure Gear lures explorers into its storefront with apparel, equipment, and accessories for warm- and cold-weather excursions, and helps keep like minds together by organizing a variety of fun, rough-and-tumble outdoor events. A selection of kayaks, paddles, and life jackets outfit aquatic travelers; snowshoes give trekkers the surefootedness of a mountain goat and the problem-solving savvy of a lab rat with a degree in public relations. Clients can load up backpacks and venture forth on one of the company’s weekly paddling events, held at sites around the Midwest. Beginners can take advantage of lessons that accommodate no more than 12 students, and more practiced paddlers can take group trips to Wisconsin, central France, or a whale’s dreamscape.
