    Mariet is far from immune to the allure of the Christmas spirit. Some feel that Christmas isnít complete without a grand live Christmas tree, and this year in Mariet people can find their fill of them. The community has organized a Celebration of Lights. A designated path through the forest is lined with personally decorated displays, with the help of cleverly hidden mobile generators. The organizers and volunteers put their heart into this display, and it is open to the public for nightly walks. Can you feel the Christmas spirit yet?

The Mall of Mariet
The size of Mariet's Mall is not comparable to anything large or extravagant, but it is large enough. The mall contains a variety of shops, and there are a couple of famous designer shops. In the centre of the mall is a large, wide, circular fountain surrounded by benches in the open air; a perfect place to spend a moment of relaxation and rest the feet from a day of shopping. For those who enjoy shopping, the Mall of Mariet is a haven.

The Attic
A hybrid coffee shop/bookstore, The Attic is exactly what you'd expect from a book store; it's small, cozy and smells of hazelnut coffee and paper. The Attic has been open for nearly fifty years, owned by a little man named Andrew Sebastian.

The Dollhouse
If your appetite is for something a little more ďafter darkĒ, the Dollhouse is the place to be. A sturdy and utilitarian building on the outside houses the beautiful and the sinful on the inside. For a small fee you can sit back, relax and enjoy the sights of the truly naughty. But while you can look, donít even think about trying to touch. There is a strict no touching policy, and the security will take great joy in throwing you out on your behind for not keeping your hands to yourself.

Juniper Avenue
Before the days of Wal-Mart and the Mall of Mariet, you could come to Juniper Avenue. A bit like stepping back in time, Juniper features a brick road and antique benches and street lamps of Mariet days gone by. Storefronts with Victorian flare reveal antique shops, cafes, and up-scale boutiques. While it is not the most bustling area of this small town, it is certainly chock-full of character, and certainly seems like a slice of old Mariet thatís here to stay.

Mariet Cemetery
The Mariet Cemetery is the only one within the town limits. To make up for the lack of others, this one is large and sprawling. It consists of rolling hills with graves of various shapes and sizes sticking out from the ground. At the entrance, just behind the wrought-iron gates, are several rows of vaults. These vaults come at high price; so they should, because the solid marble is kept impeccable bu the groundskeeper. However, deeper in the graveyard, though thorns and dry grass are older, less well-maintained graves.

Ink and Needles
Ink and Needles is a contemporary tattoo shop with a nice feel to it. The walls are lined with artwork, either original pieces, or extracts from various comics. As you walk in you can take a seat and flip through the books for examples. There's usually someone sat at the desk, unless they're in one of the two 'studios'. The walls are light colored, and it's a fresh change to any of the grimy downtown studios. They rarely get complaints and that's the way they like it. Glass cases display the various barbels available, and they have fair prices.

Vincenzo Bellini Theatre
Named after the southern Italian opera composer, this is the oldest and most beautiful building in Mariet. Built in the late 1800s, the facade is imported stone, hand carved and simply stunning. The interior is equally as elegant. The walls and the ceiling are painted with the gods and goddesses of Roman mythology, and beautiful scenery and castles. Many plays and operas come to the theatre and the local actor's association frequently put on shows though the year. Here, the lights are always glowing.

Obvious is anything but inconspicuous. The bar is located inside of the building painted a lush purple - purple is the color if royalty, so there were never any doubts about what Obvious' color scheme was going to be. The interior is very cabin-esque - exposed beans run along the ceiling, and a large free-standing open-air fireplace is set in the middle of he room. The bar is a light, shiny birch wood and lined alongside it are the gold plated, purple velvet bar stools. Without a doubt, one stool itself cost more than every item in Tim's Tin Tequila Shack put together. Think twice before you swagger into Obvious - there's a dress code. Black tie. Not black tie creative, not business casual. The White Stag collection at the local supershop will not do.

Kingdom of Terror
In the beginning. the Kingdom of Terror was the Kingdom of Fun. During those days, no one visited... only the occasional bored parents and ecstatic 6 year old. Clearly, Mariet wasn't, and isn't, much of a family town. Then, a few years after opening, "Fun" was crossed out and "Terror" replaced it. The roller coasters here have been given awards, and the water slides makes people wet themselves. Though the Kingdom isn't massive, it makes up for this in the quality of the rides.

The Skillet
You know the cliche diner that everybody avoids because it looks like it's secretly a crack den? That's the Skillet. Run out of an converted doublewide on the side of the road, most of Mariet would pretend to ignore its existence completely, but a select few have taken the plunge and stepped into the seat-up diner. Those people are risk takers, and they're greatly rewarded for said risk. The Skillet has, hands down, some of the best down-home cooking you will ever eat in your entire life, and some of the nicest people you might ever meet. The menu changes at the whims of its married owners, Jim the cook and Babette the manager/head waitress. Locals, however, would lynch the two if they ever touches the breakfast menu, but Jim and Babette know how to keep their costumers pleased.

Balzac's Winery
Although Balzac's is states away from a real vineyard, their wine is of impeccable quality, as if everything on their menu... and the price tag shows. Getting into Balzac's without a reservation is near impossible; the restaurant is very exclusive and upper class. A famous interior designer was hired to decorate Balzac's - dark, rich wood, matte silver fixtures and a deep red and light tan color scheme give Balzac's a gorgeous interior and captivating atmosphere. In the corner of the restaurant sits a beautiful grand piano and a sleek microphone, reserved for only the finest pianist and the most bewitching nightingale. Being the only high calibre French and Italian fusion restaurant in town, Balzac's is the place to be.

Sweetie Pie Bakery
Settled on the corner of Juniper and Chartres Street is an attractive little brick building that boasts an sign made up of a cupcake and the words "Sweetie Pie's". The bakery has a small open area right inside that leads up to a glass case that houses all of the fresh goodies made daily. Behind the counter is a wall that separates the bakery from the kitchen. To the right of the separating wall is a staircase (hidden behind a curtain) that leads up to the apartment that the bakery owner lives in. There is also a staircase at the back of the building that can be accessed from the back parking lot.
