The Longaberger Company (Ohio) is a maker of handcrafted maple wood baskets. It is one of the primary employers in thesoutheastern Ohio area near Dresden, Ohio. Started in Dresden, the company is now headquartered in Newark, Ohio. A family-owned and operated business, the Longaberger Company was started by Dave Longaberger and after his death is now owned by daughters Tami Longaberger and Rachel Longaberger.

The Longaberger corporate headquarters on State Route 16 is a local landmark and a well-known example of novelty architecture, since it takes the shape of their biggest seller, the "Medium Market Basket". Originally, Dave Longaberger wanted all of the Longaberger buildings to be shaped like baskets, but only the headquarters was completed by his death. After his death, further basket-shaped buildings were vetoed by his daughters. [Back to albums]

With Prohibition hanging heavily over the land, Gallagher’s was the first speakeasy-a Runyonesque gathering place for gangsters, gamblers, sports figures, showbiz folk and other stars of the Broadway firmament.

Niagara Helicopters (Niagara Falls) As the helicopter gently lifts off from our Victoria Avenue location, the awe-inspiring views of the Niagara Region begin to appear below. We wouldn't want any picture-taking opportunity to be missed so cameras should be ready to go right from the start!

Beginning with the Sir Adam Beck Generating plant and the Niagara Parks Commission School of Horticulture, the tour follows the Niagara River from the Whirlpool area (look for the Spanish Aero Car crossing the gorge), over the Whirlpool Rapids and the Rainbow Bridge. The green grass and floral beauty of Queen Victoria Park stretches below as the helicopter passes by the American Falls and the Skylon Tower. Just when it looks as if you may reach the Minolta Tower, the helicopter begins to change direction as if following the curve of the *Canadian Horseshoe Falls! Rainbows appear and disappear from all directions. The helicopter begins to level off and continue along the route back to base. Our tip: Do it!, well worth the money and a great way to see the falls from the air. (**** 5 Stars ****)  [Back to albums]
IMAX Theatre (Niagara Falls) Is the home of one of the most spectacular IMAX adventures of all time - The Niagara Falls Movie: Niagara: Miracles, Myths and Magic. Our tip: A dud movie, save your money buy a book on the falls instead. (* 1 Stars *)  [Back to albums]
