The Louisville Recreation and Senior Center may be small, but it has many good features that help it hold its own against the fancier Boulder rec centers and private gyms. The Louisville Rec is located next to the Louisville Arboretum and includes several outdoor additions such as free access to the arboretum for picnics and outdoor walks, tennis courts, and a skate park and playground for kids. Inside, the rec center has two pools (one for kids and one for adults, including lap lanes), a water slide, sauna and steam room, several racquetball courts, two gyms, a full mile indoor track, and a selection of workout equipment that competes with what you'd find at any larger gym. Admission is fair, even for non-locals, and a variety of fitness and educational classes for adults and kids alike are available as well. -Sabrina Zirakzadeh

The Salon on Pearl is not the only hair salon in the trendy South Pearl district, but it is the best known. This is something of a shame, as there are more affordable and better salons within the same area, yet these are overlooked due to Salon's reputation.

You will leave pleased with the service you received and the zen decor and minimalism lends the place a nice atmosphere of serenity. However, for the amount charged, there are other alternatives. If you place stock in the name of a place, Salon on Pearl is your best bet, but otherwise, be sure to look at the other options and you'll find much better deals. - Sabrina Zirakzadeh
