Sunlight filters through white lace curtains into Tea with Tracy's tearoom, casting delicate shadows across wooden tables, straight-backed dining chairs, and three-tiered serving plates stocked with sandwiches and sweets. This Victorian elegance befits Tracy's location in the center of Seymour's historic antiques district, and a menu that steeps more than 100 different flavors of tea, including English breakfast, white peach, and hot cinnamon spice from Harney & Sons Fine Teas.
To accompany whistling kettles, cooks also bake sweets such as scones, banana bread, and Swedish brownies, or fill crust-less tea sandwiches with curried egg salad, English cucumbers, and mint-infused cream cheese. In addition to its refined finger foods, the shop also prepares visitors to host their own gatherings by selling elegant china alongside tins of aromatic tea.

Film buffs across six states stare wide-eyed at large cinema screens, losing themselves in first-run Hollywood movies and the smell of fresh, buttery kernels within Your Neighborhood Theatre's 17 locations. Though all theaters prioritize comfortable seating, old-fashioned friendly service, and high-stakes preshow trivia slideshows, each location encompasses its own distinct charm, be it through arthouse décor, 3-D screens, or Rhode Island's vintage 1950's drive-in setting.
At Peak Fitness, Cybex and Life Fitness strength-training machines mingle with Hammer Strength machines and free weights. An indoor rock-climbing wall protects climbers from the elements, and a cycling room corrals LeMond stationary bikes for classes. On the cardio floor, treadmills, elliptical machines, stair climbers, and bikes gather like gazelles around a “No Alligator” swimming zone. Peak also supports recreational sports, with an indoor basketball half court, a volleyball court, and tanning beds for minor-league tanning. Personal trainers and fitness coaches guide clients throughout their fitness journeys with tailored one-on-one instruction, as well as fitness classes and Zumba classes that mix music and exercise to simultaneously strengthen lower-body muscles. In the spa, staffers relax sore and fatigued bodies with massage services, waxing, and facials. Additionally, the studio's babysitting service keeps children aged 3–11 preoccupied while parents hone the mental muscles needed for their offspring's future groundings.
