They put the RV park in...and it was minimal...because it was a huge tourist area. I suppose there are a lot of small towns around the country with that type of setup. It's just convenient for the surrounding neighborhood.

Renta a Car and an auto shop. If you needed a car to drive while your car was being serviced, everthing was at your fingertips.

Motorcycle repair shop, (husband) and the wife sells delicious homemade truffles all under one roof. (both quite successful - it's been there a good ten years).
We also have a burito/oil change place (again same entrance).
And also a tattoo parlor/muffin shop (another husband wife deal).

Had a Mexican restaurant in NJ called Fresh Taco that was owned by a Chinese family- the menu boards were the same setup you'd see in a Chinese restaurant, but with Mexican dishes, and the entire staff was Asian. They soon started doing Chinese food as well, so you could order a steak quesadilla with an egg roll on the side if you desired.

This isn't so much that the businesses are odd, a family restaurant and a microbrewery. It's just that the word came out today that they are planning to open soon ...........




in the old Baptist Church.

There was a place where I grew up that when I was little was an American buffet owned by a Chinese family, then they were a Chinese buffet, and then most recently they had American and Chinese. You could get roast beef, mashed potatoes, sesame chicken, and egg rolls. They just closed for good though this year.
