"We just returned from the best Italian vacation on the Amalfi coast that we booked thru Nada’s of Italy. This is the second vacation, “Jewels of the Amalfi Coast” that we took with Nada. Our first experience with Nada’s was the “Italian Treasures Tour” in 2015 which was just as great! After leaving Rome (1 night) we stayed in Positano at the wonderful Hotel Reginella for 8 nights/9 days. From our hotel we had daily adventures to the surrounding towns (Ravello, Sorrento, Amalfi, Paestum, and Pompeii), and a boat ride to Capri and cruised the Amalfi coast in a 35 ft boat. We also got to see many great historical sites including Herculean, & Pompeii. In addition, we visited places we would never have thought existed like Tenuta Vannulo (water buffalo farm) where we had an informative tour and wonderful fresh buffalo mozzarella with our lunch. Every daily trip was perfectly planned. Every meal was wonderful and at small, quaint, family owned restaurants cooking wonderful homemade delicacies. We even got to make our own dinner at Fattoria Terranova and met the patriarch. It was a night to remember. Our tour director, Alessandro and his partner for the trip “Michela” were fabulous. They were so well versed on the history of all sights we visited and also shared great information about the history of Italy whether politics or the “fun facts” about each town and the famous people that were part of Italian history. Both Michela and Alessandro had warm and engaging personalities which added to our wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants an effortless trip (no analysis by paralysis of where to go) and want to be part of a small group. Our group was full with just 12 people which was completely manageable. This was well planned and executed to perfection and you don’t have to worry about anything, except showing up and having fun!"

"Beautiful gallery with nice collection of artists to choose from. The owners are nice and friendly. Have new artists and exhibitions all the time."


"Wow! This ride is amazing. 🎢😱 So glad we had a fast pass so we could ride this as many times as we wanted! Highly recommend but definitely not for the faint of heart! Loved the theming of the ride with the wasps/hornet, super cute. I never get souvenirs from theme parks but I did grab a shirt of this ride. Have fun and hang on tight!!"

"We had a great time. Our Game Master Christine really got us off to a great start, and she stayed in character through the whole game while giving us clues over the radio. The room, I’m told is not their hardest, but it was plenty hard for me. We got out with seconds to spare. We all had a really good time. I would recommend Exit Strategy North For a great outing with friends, or family. It would be a great team building exercise for the office crew; too."

"Amazing experience, Ashley was a wonderful driver and host! She answered all of our questions prior to the ride. This is definitely something fun to do with your friends or family especially during the summer months."

"What a fantastic place for photo shoots, walking, running, family time together. Many picturesque views. Nice playground area for kids. Playground is well maintained. Football fields. Very calming and serene place with the lake and broad walk along the lake. Three hours flew by very fast."


"Absolutely beautiful. The tour was amazing, inspiring and touched my heart. As a history lover, I enjoyed seeing all the paraphernalia on display. One of my favourites was the suit he wore to see the Queen. The gardens are a lovely addition, and the house is a must see. It's maintained so well. Staff are kind, friendly, and accommodating. Didn't get to spend a lot of time at the library because we came late but it had a good selection of books and we bought some. My husband and I stopped to just watch Billy Graham's recorded sermons and he is charismatic and the sermons were very relevant to today. So grateful to visit and would highly recommend a visit here! 😁"

"Great B&M invert. Short ride but it never lets up between the positive G's and whippy inversions. Back row is the best for forces. If you're less experienced with coasters you are likely to gray out (but it's completely normal and safe!)"

"My friends and I had an amazing time at Exit Strategy the other night! We did Twisted, which was one of the hardest rooms I've ever done but by far had some of the most unique puzzles. It had a great mix of different kinds of challenges that appealed to a wide range of skill sets and allowed everyone in the group to take the lead on at least one challenge. Our game master's sense of humor matched our group's perfectly and being able to joke around with them really enhanced the experience. Rain did a great job, and we will definitely be coming back again!!"

"Awesome "zero-G" coaster. A looser lap bar makes for a better ride as you crest each hill and make the next descent floating in your seat!! Ridden it hundreds of times and it's still a great coaster!"

"I rode here for the first time with my 10yr old. It was great fun for both of us, this place has great trails for beginners and intermediate riders, some black diamond as well. The parking lot fills up on weekends but the place is so big that you usually feel like you're alone. Highly recommended, it's part of a 214 acre nature preserve."


"Beautiful place for a walk. Great path. Works for a nice down and back walk. Never too crowded. Great atmosphere to clear your head but not so far out of the way."

"Small but well kept park with benches and a picnic area. The pond has some ducks and several fountains that create a relaxing atmosphere."

"Lots of books for kids and teenagers, fun small play area kind outside. This entrance is free unless you want to get some books etc. Lot of science activities for kids like magnets, books along with other play stuff. Definitely recommend going here, if you wanted to go during busy time I would recommend going by train as the station was literally next door."

"Best day ever!! You can create your own playlist and smash so much wonderful things!! The owner was super cool and provides some ppe but I recommend long sleeves. All the money in therapy and I needed a rage room! Can’t wait to go back"

"Absolutely spectacular spot to go relax and enjoy sometime outdoors. The layout of plants in the space are a must see!! If you're a plant lover, like me, you could spend hours in here. To make the experience better, If you have any questions about the plants the staff is super kind and helpful. I will definitely be coming back."
