    Applebees is one of those restaurants where you really can't tell which city you are in once you begin eating. The scenery outside and the accent of the hostess and waiter might give away the location but the consistently good food won't.

    The menu has choices for most American palates. You can get steak or ribs, salads, chicken or fish, pasta, Mexican, soup and sandwich. They have some chicken pieces with a sauce that will generate flames in your mouth. Their grilled salmon with pilaf is good also.

    I usually go for one of their chicken salads (healthy food, you know) while my wife likes the ribs or roastbeef. They offer a nice backed potato with the beef dinner.
    Start off with onion rings or chips and salsa and a beer. Then Fried Chicken Salad for me and Sirloin Steak for my wife. The waitress takes your appetizer order right away and about ten minutes later takes your order for your main meal. Another 15 minutes and you are eating some good food.

    The dining area is comfortable booths that sit four and those yuppie tall tables with stools that seem to be popular lately (personally I find them very uncomfortable). There also is a bar area where you can also eat a meal if you choose.
    There are plenty of knick0knacks and posters and pictures on the wall to keep your eyes entertained if the conversation lags while you are waiting for your meal.

    Everyone on the staff is generally freindly and smiley. The service and food are good. We always leave a good tip (20%). A typical dinner bill will be close to $40 for the two of us (includes beverages, appetizers, entree, shared dessert, tip and tax).

    We have never been disappointed at these Applebees that I can remember offhand.

    Pizza's and Calzones... mouth watering and spicy.

    That is Colasante's specialty... you can tell them how to make one or be surprised and leave it up to them. Either way, you will be satisfied.

    Pizza toppings: onion, broccoli, anchovies, meatballs, pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, hot peppers, ham slices, bacon, more more more.....

    Calzone stuffings: cheeses, peppers, pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, tomato, meatballs, onions.

    And something new on the menus: the Mexican influence; fajita pizza, taco pizza, jalapeno pizza.

    They even have vegetarian specialties if you are so inclined (yuk).

    Morgantown Mall has about 70 stores and 5 eateries. Many of the stores are aimed at young adult clothing (probably because Morgantown is a university town).
    The anchor stores are: Sear's, Waldenbooks, Aeropostale, Gadzooks, Hibbett, Penney's, Hallmark, PayLess, Victoria's Secret.
    Like most malls, this one provides special events in the way of mall-wide sales or double coupon days or in-the-mall entertainment, and holiday visits from Santa and the Easter Bunny.
    There are also beauty salons and photographers.
    There is a multiple-screen movie theater next door to the mall.

    My wife requires at least one mall day for every three days of vacation. Morgantown Mall was that day for us.

Westover Warnings and Dangers

    The national crime stats show that Westover is more dangerous for crime than an average American city of similar size. Most of the crime is property related (burglary, car theft, shoplifting) but Westover is also more risky than average in violent crimes like rape and assaults.
    There are four sex offenders registered in Westover.
    to see more information about this, go to the website below.

    Use simple precautions. Lock doors, put valuables in the motel safe, don't flash large sums of money and keep you wallet in a front pocket. Don't go out late at night alone or into unfamiliar neighborhoods. Ask the motel staff if there are any areas that should be avoided.

    Be safe rather than sorry. We used common sense and had no problems on our visit to the area.

    UPDATE 2007
    Through a concerted effort by law enforcement and an increase in the presence of officers on the street, muders, rapes and assaults in the last three years have taken a dramatic reduction. Burgalries also have been cut 25%. Violent crimes now only account for 5% of all reported crimes in the area.
