When we think of the perfect dessert place to take family and friends that visit us from up north, Sloan’s at City Place (or their other locations throughout the area) always comes to mind. Their whimsical decor, ice cream flavors (get the kitchen sink if your group is big enough), candy and gifts selection always seem to appeal to someone in the group. Plus, take a trip to the back of the store and you’ll be treated to one of most famous rooms in the entire country; their bathroom that goes from transparent to opaque with the flick of a switch.
Sometimes you need to just get away and refuel; whether it’s for one night or for a full week, we think that we stumbled on the perfect spot. Looking to get away and with the grandparents watching the kids for a night, we took advantage of Casa Grandview‘s Procrastinator promotion, which allowed us to save 20% on our room by booking the same day of travel.
