The zoo is one place you never outgrow. No matter if you’re three or 83, there’s a special joy that comes from watching wild creatures in their natural habitats doing what they do.

Rated by Trip Advisor as the eighth highest consumer-rated zoo in the country, the Brevard Zoo entertains more than 400,000 visitors each year. In celebration of their 20th birthday, the zoo recently opened their newest exhibit — Meerkat Hamlet.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That old saying would certainly seem to apply to most business owners who are expanding on a successful brand. But when the owners of Dakota’s Roadhouse looked to open its sixth location in Oxford, Ohio, home to Miami University, they felt the brand needed a different look.
Located in a mixed-use development called Stewart Square designed by architect Scott Webb, the restaurant would be part of a mix of retail businesses, student housing, and a hotel.Read More
