Glance at the sunlight as it casts color and patterns on the wall behind you as you step out.
Enjoy the blue sky and the fragrance of the flowers as you leave your cares behind.
Grab some light fare from one of the many fabulous eateries in the area.
Ice cream is essential. Always.
Search out unique outdoor furniture, there are great selections of vintage motel chairs.

Don’t forget to grab the outdoor lanterns for when the sun goes down!
Our dealers have a number of fun items for the garden, including the classic, collectible watering cans.
