    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Imperial Buffet(just found out new owners Used to be called the King House)-a Chinese Buffet

Aberdeen What to Pack

  • 1_summer's Profile Photo

    by 1_summer Written Mar 25, 2004

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: GOOD WALKING BOOTS IF YOU'RE PLANNING A HIKE....ALWAYS TAKE ALONG A JACKET, LIKE A HOODED SWEATSHIRT BECAUSE THE NIGHTS ARE USUALLY CHILLY. ALSO HELPS TO KEEP SKEETERS AT BAY!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: THERE ARE LOTSA CHAIN STORES AND WALMART'S OPEN 24/7 SO YOU CAN PRETTY MUCH FIND WHAT YOU NEED. PHARMACIES ARE OPEN TIL 9 P.M. AT SHOPKO AND A FEW OTHER SPOTS.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: IT SEEMS TO BE PRETTY TOUGH TO FIND COOL SWIMWEAR HERE SO BRING YOUR OWN.
