Shopping Scheels , 11282 S. State St. at Auto Mall Drive, isn't just a 220,000-square-foot sporting goods store. Besides a wide selection of fitness apparel and recreational equipment (everything from Nikes to duck calls), the massive showroom has a 16,000-gallon saltwater aquarium, a 16-car Ferris wheel and a retro shooting gallery.
Just north of Scheels is South Towne Center; in addition to anchors Dillard's, JCPenney and Macy's, it has 150 stores and restaurants.
In-person hotel evaluations are unscheduled to ensure the inspector has an experience similar to that of members. All hotels must meet the same basic requirements for cleanliness, comfort and hospitality to be AAA Approved. A rating of one to five AAA Diamonds tells members what type of experience to expect, from no-frills to highly personalized.
