Great atmosphere, great Mexican food, great service and reasonable prices. There is also a bar attached with a pool table. They will also often have live traveling Mexican traveling band (from table to table) for guests enjoyment on the weekends.

Toby's Dinner theater is food and a theatrical production. The food is all you can eat - and usually very tasty. Also, I have never seen a production there that I did not enjoy. Lots of fun!

If you enjoy a thrill - this is a must see. The Zip-line is amazing fun, they also have a climbing wall, high-wire walking amoung the trees, and huge swing. The adventure can be purchased all inclusive or individually. Check out Groupon for discounted tickets. They are not always available - but often. TONS of fun - and totally safe (you are always strapped onto a wire safety line). Call for more details & pricing.

REVIEW: First is safety, it's always number one at Earth Treks. I am not a climber, this experience really gave me confidence. I don't just mean scaling walls, but in everyday life. I will say age is not a factor. I did it several times, it is a challenge and fun. Never thought about it? Then I would suggest at least one Earth Trek adventure. Have fun.

Review: went in for a facial because I was experiencing some black heads. Never having gotten a facial before, I was unsure of what to expect. Upon arrival, the front desk staff was amazing! They made me feel like I was the only person who was in the spa, and they even gave me delicious coconut enhanced water. Upon being taken back, the lady who worked with my skin (forgot her name, sorry) was incredibly knowledgeable and explained the whole process. After my facial, my skin was incredible. I signed up for the lifestyle program with them, because my friend had one with Massage Envy. The difference is that they don't charge extra to get a monthly facial versus massage, and it's month-to-moth, where you can leave at any time! I can't wait until my next facial! Visited September 2015 REVIEW: I started coming prior to having a fusion surgery almost two years ago. My therapist, Eric has been meeting my massage therapy needs ever since.He is a skilled therapist and has great interpersonal skills. Very happy to have found this spa. Visited February 2016

REVIEW: My husband and I routinely swim for exercise at the Columbia swim center. The water in the main pool is comfortable at about 84 to 86 degrees. There is a second pool called the program pool which is cooler and used for swim team practice. There is a large children's pool that goes from one half foot to 2 feet deep. It does not have any fancy water features but has been enjoyed by my children and grandchildren. The splashdown water slides have been closed for renovation with an uncertain reopening date.
