Monument / Landmark
“Aztec Bowl is a great place to hang out with friends and family! Aztec Bowl isn't the bowling alley you grew up with - no ratty carpets, old smoke smell, or stinky shoes, this sparkling modern bowling alley is bright, clean, and best of all very affordable. While they do not serve pizza or beer here, you can go next door to Oggi's pizza to get your fill of those after you've scored 200+ on your bowling game. ”
