At their core, Aly's Apples are just like any other. In this case, it's what's on the outside that really counts. Their self-professed "over the top" gourmet caramel apples put boring old caramel apples to shame. Each day, they're hand dipped in smooth homemade caramel before receiving drizzles of chocolate and toppings that range from dark chocolate and pecans to marshmallows, M&Ms, and english toffee molded into a kitchen sink.

Within Lavo Collections’ four bustling boutiques, an ever-updating array of fashionable threads entices visitors with catwalk-ready looks displayed on jauntily posed mannequins.

At Teacake Factory, ogling is accepted—so long as it's limited to the delicious-looking pastries in the display case. The baker's take the attention as a compliment, since they make an effort to craft pastries that are not only tasty, but beautiful. They specialize in tea cakes, into which they incorporate cherries, chocolate chips, and M&Ms to create crumbly cake-cookie hybrids that pair perfectly with a glass of tea. But they don't limit their baking skills to just tea time. They're well known for their cupcakes, which serve as individual desserts, pies, mini pies, cakes, cake balls, and individual cake slices. Different tea brews can accompany any order.
The facials at Facelogic Spa aim to make people feel like they're floating. Not just because of the soothing products used or the aestheticians' massage techniques, but because every client sits in a cloud-like zero-gravity recliner during their service. Unlike a traditional massage table, these chairs elevate legs to take stress off the spine and make the body feel as if it's hovering like a slice of cucumber on an air-hockey table.
While clients are suspended in this stress-free state, aestheticians tend to professional-strength skincare with a roster of masks, peels, and serums. Advanced options include chemical peels to brighten, resurface, and exfoliate faces.
Over the course of more than 25 years in business, GMS Dental Centers have established the kind of long-term relationships with patients that allow an office to thrive. The company employs many licensed dentists, hygienists, and dental specialists, as well as a former IRS agent who gets paid in people not yelling at him. Each location treats kids and adults to cosmetic, preventative, and procedural care, and dental teams also perform ultra-modern services such as Zoom! whitening, straightening with Invisalign, and installing quarter-inch HDTVs in incisors.
