I went to Colonial Williamsburg last summer with my family. I thoroughly enjoyed their print shop, wig shop, leather shop, shoe shop and their ammunitions building. Some of their guides were excellent while some of their other guides and workers were not that friendly and talkative. The best tour was at the Governer's Mansion where all of the guides were outstanding. I think that the people that work and dress in historical garb that work in the shops and attractions should be more talkative and friendly. They don't seem to really care about this important historical site in my opinion and they don't seem to care about who is paying to keep this historical center up and running.

I had several items dry cleaned at Shiraki Dry Cleaners for years. The hotel that I used to work for used Shiraki Dry Cleaners to dry clean their employee's work clothes. Their service is quick and they do a good job. I have never had a problem with this dry cleaner. I would recommend this company to any person or business looking to contract dry cleaning services.
This shopping center only has a few good shops including Starbucks and Ross. Some of their other small retail stores include Blockbuster, Payless Shoes and Jeans Warehouse. They also have a wonderful KTA Grocery Store which carries a large inventory of groceries, seafood, produce and baked goods.. I don't care for all of the other shops because I don't need anything there. This shopping center could use a facelift since it's starting to look old.

You can shop at Long's Drugs to buy everything from slippers to canned goods. They also have a few good fast food restaurants that include L&Ls and Kentucky Fried Chicken. This shopping center has it all.
The Kings Shops has a variety of wonderful restaurants. I really like the Big Island Steakhouse and Roys. Both are great restaurants for families. If you don't want to eat at a sit down restaurant then you can dine at the food court which includes many fast food eateries. This is a great place for visitors and kamaainas alike.
