With 18 acres of blooming gardens and natural North Carolina wetlands, the Sylvan Heights Bird Park provides a home for more than 2,000 ducks, geese, and exotic egg layers. As they stroll along the trails and waterfront, guests can observe birds hailing from almost every continent, such as peacocks, flamingos, and toucans. In addition to the walk-through aviaries, the park aims to educate and entertain visitors with interactive children’s programs, tours, and activities such as scavenger hunts. Among its many attractions are the Bird’s Nest Treehouse and Beaver Pond Blind, both of which highlight the importance of wetland conservation, as well as the Landing Zone, where visitors can feed the birds with a seed stick.

Mohamed Elsayed began to professionally dissect computers at age 16, accumulating enough technical expertise to open Sunset Computer Works a decade later. Alongside expert staff members who share his congenial attitude, he now patches up all manners of electronics, ranging from smartphones and security cameras to Macs and video-game consoles. Consistently studying, Mohamed keeps abreast of the latest and least costly methods for restoring screens and software. His interview in the Rocky Mount Telegram assures clients that he'll examine "pretty much anything that has got a motherboard in it or a circuit board." Because he prefers to fix products onsite rather than work on them as he travels the country in a sloth-drawn carriage, he can guarantee a 7-day turnaround on most items, including iPhones.
Mohamed marries his overarching knowledge of all things wired with a fair-minded approach to repair fees. Complimentary diagnostics ensure that customers don't pay if their equipment requires no maintenance, and flat-rate prices often cover all aspects of hardware and software work. Employees strive to remain neutral in a world of brand alignment, refraining from making unnecessary purchase recommendations or speaking via iPad recordings of their mouth.
In a 2011 interview with the Rocky Mount Telegram, George Millar reveals he has been a facilitating fun for a long time. "Soccer wasn't in existence when we started," he points out, and neither were home video games. Noticing a dearth of places in his hometown where kids and families could safely enjoy themselves, he put his skills as a professional contractor to work. In 10 outdoor batting cages, he installed pitching machines that sling baseballs and softballs from T-ball speeds up to 80 miles per hour. Next, he and his crew of five guys—all of whom are still operating the business today—built an 18-hole mini-golf course modeled after those in Myrtle Beach, designing a path that winds past waterfalls, natural plantings, and tricky bunkers filled with saltwater taffy. An arcade blares with games and the crack of pool balls ricocheting inside, and an elephant-shaped inflatable bounce house bobs with jumpers inside until they come zipping out down its slide.
