Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum

A motorcyclist's dream, this museum has 750 vintage and modern motorcycles displayed on walls, two-tiered platforms and just about everywhere you look. The bikes are displayed randomly, rather than by date and year, adding an element of unpredictability to the viewer's experience.

My family is unfamiliar with motorcycles aside from recognizing the Harley-Davidson and Honda logos, but this place gave us (ages 7 to 69) an appreciation for motorsports in general and motorcycles specifically that we weren’t expecting. Unmistakable as well was the art of the bikes. The displays were fantastic, and the employees who gave our tour were as patient as could be with our kids and as informative as could be for our entire family.

It’s clear that Mr. Barber wanted his museum to be the Augusta National of motorsports. The building and grounds are impeccably manicured and maintained.

If you can arrange a tour ahead of your visit, you just might make it down to the basement level to see the restoration garage. The whole operation is just first class, and to be in the presence of such art, class and success makes for a really cool day.

Bass Pro Shop

Reviewed By Frog P

Enjoy shopping at Bass Pro because of the variety of hunting and fishing supplies. They have a huge selection of outdoor wear that can only be found in this location. Their private label brands have the same quality as their name brand items. Selection of guns and ammunition is very good, fishing supplies are endless. It's nice that they sell Boats & Outdoor vehicles in addition to there hunting and fishing supplies. The little restaurant inside is okay. The fudge is delightful. You can find similar or same items at other places maybe a little cheaper but you can't find everything they've got in one location anywhere else.

This is definitely a one-stop-shop for your outdoor needs. During the season set up in the store so that children can visit Santa Claus.

Spare Time Entertainment

Reviewed By Trudy S

My first time there. We went bowling but they have games, laser tag and other stuff to do. The atmosphere was good and the place was clean but the snack bar was expensive and the workers were not to friendly and very slow. I recommend you eat before you go to this place.

We shop there for grandchildern's clothes. They have some good values on some clothes but don't expect everything there to be a bargain. The tool store carries cheap made tools at a greater cost than you can get the same or better quality at Harbor Freight.

Train Escape

Locked in a locomotive with no way out, you must search for hidden compartments, secret passageways, and decipher clues to plot your Great Train Escape. It is a hybrid of a scavenger hunt and a puzzle game. Teamwork, Creativity and resourcefulness is essential to get off this train. Success, failure and fun are inevitable – ESCAPE is not!

Reviewed By Rex M - Nashville, Tennessee

I have played escape rooms around the county but never before in a real train - very cool - just seeing the train and knowing it is the setting was fun. My expectations were that the rooms would be small given space on a train - and they were to some extent. However, the staff did a great job with creative puzzles and spaces to make the game live up to the "Wow" factor of the train.

I played both of their games and there were many unique elements that were fun and challenging.

Highly recommend these games - would suggest smaller team sizes versus normal rooms - the staff was very responsive and can guide you to make sure you have a great time with the right number of players.

Looking forward to their next games!

Porsche Sport Driving School - Day Classes

Reviewed By SoozieKabloozie - Baltimore, Maryland

Taking the 2-day performance driving course was a bucket list item that I checked off for my 50th birthday. This program is run very professionally and we were driving almost immediately. The instructors are lots of fun, highly skilled and excellent teachers. After only about 30 minutes in the classroom, I was on the track driving a GT4!! We were busy busy busy with our teams trying out 8 different Porsche vehicles driving autocross, using the skidpad, offroading with the Cayenne and driving as fast as we dared on a the closed track. We were fed 3 delicious meals the first day and two meals the second day. I will definitely repeat this. My husband joined me but we couldn't afford the fee for both of us to drive, so he attended as a guest. He wasn't able to drive the cars but rode along with the instructor whenever there was a demo ride and on all the track rides. His meals were included in the small guest fee we paid. Now it's on OUR bucket list to go back so both of us can drive!! Highly recommend. Worth every penny!!

I smoke a pipe. The pipe tobacco is not a focus of the business and therefore has little profit I assume. The pipe tobacco has not turnover resulting in it not being fresh, minimum variety and high priced.

Bama Flea Mall & Antique Center

Reviewed By KevinMuir - Birmingham, Alabama

I did purchase a Jack Daniel's whisky barrel from here, although there is nothing antique about it. 99% of the store is somebody's junk sale or counterfeit Alabama football items. When I pointed this out to an employee, she stated I must be an Auburn fan and if I didn't like it I didn't have to look at it or purchase it. This seems to be the way all businesses in Leeds, Alabama treat people as I had a terrible experience elsewhere.
If you like yard sales with 1980s era stuff or illegal Alabama merchandise then this place is for you. As far as the lady at the counter, I can only hope you are nicer when the Lord comes back than you were to me.
