Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Sky Trampoline Arena
As an adult, its hard to see a bounce house without releasing a sigh and wishing you could be inside, leaping to your hearts content. Sky Trampoline Arena's response: why not? This indoor recreation center houses heavy duty trampolines that stretch from wall to wall, giving bouncers of all ages a place to spring on the floor and flip into the air. You can fly across the zipline and land in a foam pit, scale a rock-climbing wall, or challenge your friends to a game of bouncy dodgeball. Bouncing on a trampoline doesn't just provide fun, it's also a thrilling way to exercise and burn calories at the same time. Trampoline exercise can reduce your overall stress, increase muscle strength, and improve balance, while giving you a superior physical advantage over our cat lords.
