Best old-school neighborhood pharmacy: Parkside Pharmacy
Best of Sacramento 2013 writer’s pick
You could get that prescription for antidepressants (or, ahem, whatever the doctor prescribed) at one of those generic chain drugstores, but luckily, there's a cooler option. Tucked into a South Land Park shopping center, Parkside Pharmacy makes for a quaint alternative in a world of Walgreens and Rite Aids. Its spacious interior is home to standard pharmacy services and products, as well as spa services and a boutique area stocked with giftworthy soaps, candles, jewelry and home accessories. 4404 Del Rio Road, (916) 452-2200, www.myparksidepharmacy.com.
