First, try and carpool if possible. Gas is one of the most expensive costs of traveling, but this cost can be reduced by including friends and family on your trip. By splitting gas multiple ways, you will all be able to save some money and enjoy the time you have together. To get even more out of your gas budget, do a bit of research before you leave. By looking up average gas prices in the cities you will be driving through, you will be able to plan your stops in the places that have the cheapest gas. This may result in making inconvenient or untimely stops, depending upon when you drive through these cities, but as long as you stop in a safe area the inconvenience will be worth it and your wallet won’t feel the strain.
Boise Towne Square Mall’s anchor stores include Sears, Dillards, Macy, and JC Penneys. Also highly visible from the parking lot are the wildly popular Cheesecake Factory and Border. Interior mall stores run the range from teen specialty apparel shops, to shoe stores, gift shops, electronic shops, books and card shops, bath & beauty plus hobby shops and more. Restaurants range from Food Court “fast food” offerings, to pretzel or corn dog stands, and several sit-down restaurants that provide a dinner around me experience. Mall store hours are 10 am to 9 pm Monday – Saturday, and 11 am to 7 pm on Sunday. The restaurants with exterior exits do stay open later.
Another way to make your gas budget stretch is to increase the miles your car can go per gallon. Keeping proper air pressure in your tires and driving at or below the speed limit are two ways to greatly influence the rate at which your car consumes gas. If your car is properly maintained it will work to its maximum efficiency, resulting in less gas being used.
The food on the menu for lunch was mouth watering. Nick’s Lake House offers a variety of foods to choose from. Burgers, Fish, Steak, Salads, Pizza and more. No one was disappointed with the choices available. We placed our orders rather quickly as more than half of us are starving artists literally! We get hungry and want to be fed quickly. A few people ordered Grilled Reuben’s, one of us ordered a small personal Pizza, another had an Italian Sausage Sandwich and one of us ordered a burger with fries. I got to splurge on myself a little so I ordered a house spinach salad with sirloin steak medium rare.
If beaches aren’t enough to make your vacation complete; then how does gourmet restaurants and second to none night-life sound? Throw celebrity spotting into this mix, and South Beach, Miami is one place that has all your vacation needs.and wants. The night life keeps going strong here till 5am; this is a perfect destination for couples, friends or a family stop on their Florida vacation.
I don’t believe I heard any complaints. We all got our food quickly and each of us dove in. I was very impressed with my order. The spinach was crisp, the mozzarella was fresh as was the carrots and the steak was made to perfection. It was neither tough nor chewy. The plate was also a perfect portion. Often when I order a meal like this there is too little or too much but Nick’s Lake House pulled it off perfect. I ate every last bite and tried hard not go “mmm” every time. It went perfect with the beer I had which was ice cold.
Islands is one of my favorite places to eat at. The restaurant specializes in gourmet burgers but with a Hawaiian theme. Yes, even the servers wear those great colorful Hawaiian shirts that I love so much. One of the best burgers that i have found unique to this restaurant is the Hawaiian burger which is made with pineapple and Teriyaki sauce, a combination that compliments each other.
Most Cici Pizza location will make any pizza you can dream up and it won’t cost you anything extra. Just tell the chef what you want (Buffalo chicken pizza, mac and cheese pizza, etc) and if they have the ingredients they will whip it up for you!!
