Against the sonic background of percussive strikes and jubilant chatter, bowlers stare down formidable pins on 1 of 36 sleek lanes. The aroma of pizza drifts over the lanes as bowlers topple pins or battle digital foes in the arcade room. Albany Bowl caters to youngsters with bowling-package birthday parties, helping out players under 9 with lane bumpers and surprising them with a visit from Mr. Pin, Albany Bowl's bowling-pin-shaped mascot, who tells the kids all about his favorite sport—basketball. Committed players can sign up for bowling leagues, and spectators can lounge in the sports bar, listening to the cacophonous soundtrack from a leather-seated stool.

Founders Kara Collier and Jasmine Buczek wanted to create a place where anyone could dedicate themselves to health and fitness. To do that, they drew up a recipe that included certified trainers able to work with people of all fitness levels, ages, and experience; an inviting space equipped with all high-end weight and cardio training equipment; and a dash of stylish locker rooms with showers. Next, they mixed in some Classes including spinning, yoga, and Aeroba-cize, which uses dance moves to build overall strength.

In 2005 they they threw the whole thing in the oven and baked up All In One Fitness. There, they make overall health the focus. Every new member gets a comprehensive fitness assessment and accurate BMI measurements. Once clients get into their regimen, trainers start regularly tracking changes with the Integrated functional Coaching System to keep goals in sight. All In One Fitness also offers weight loss programs and personal training complete with packages tailored to each client's requirement. The fitness gurus work one-on-one or with small groups to hone in on weight loss, prepare them for running a marathon, or just start off on the path to living a healthier lifestyle.

A group of teachers and parents founded Habitot Children's Museum in 1998 with one specific mission in mind: to foster children up to 6 years old by encouraging their creativity and natural curiosity. Today, the 4,000-square-foot museum backs up this mission with research—gleaned from studies by scientists, psychologists, and educators—positing that healthy play spurs social skills, creative thinking, and problem solving, laying the foundation for kids to succeed later in life and imprison boogeymen in their booby-trapped closet tomorrow.

At Habitot, kids find such opportunities at small-scale exhibits and themed play areas throughout the museum. Aspiring firefighters steer a small-scale truck, race through a pretend burning building, and maneuver the hose and nozzle from a fire hydrant, all while donning coats, boots, and helmets. Young explorers press buttons, turn dials, and issue commands for pretend space launches inside a 13-foot model rocket ship or navigate a vertical floor-to-ceiling maze designed to mimic worm tunnels. At the waterworks table and pumping station, young engineers manipulate water using buckets, funnels, waterwheels, and pitchers to help them understand H2O’s unique properties, such as how it keeps boats afloat on the arms of a thousand mermen. (At different times throughout the year, the staff transforms this area with a different theme; at times it’s been a car wash, a marine-science lab, or the racing grounds for a rubber-ducky regatta.) Visitors can tap into their inner Van Goghs at the art studio, where they play with soft clays and go nuts on a paintable wall. Habitot also hosts year-round children's camps with themes such as beaches, transportation, space, castles, and science.

As the father of a 2-year old, Tim Alley found himself running around to playdates scattered throughout the Bay Area, scooting to toddler-friendly lessons in art, gymnastics, and dance. While he loved the programming, he wished that he and his daughter weren't confined to such a tight schedule. So, he turned to his brother-in-law, Tom Limbert, head teacher at a local preschool, and they began to work on their own children's studio at Studio Grow—a supplementary preschool atmosphere with a focus on unstructured learning where children can play throughout the day. True to its name, Studio Grow now welcomes tots at three area studios. Though programs and amenities vary by location, kids might frolic through a color-splashed dance room, construct crafty masterpieces from watercolors, play-doh, and crayons in an art room, or plunge into ball pits. At all three locations, kids can tinker in a room filled with puzzles, toy trucks, dress-up clothes, and lego building sets. in a slide-filled run room. Instructors stay on hand throughout each romp, ready to lead Berkeley guests through sing-alongs or immerse Concord’s small listeners in story time. Teachers may also balloon a giant primary-colored parachute over the playroom for kids to scurry under and use to shield themselves from sudden broccoli storms. Though staffers emphasize unstructured play, they also lead summer camps for children up to aged 6 with guided romps through the studio; as well as Friday-night babysitting sessions, where kids of all ages can play sans parents until 10 p.m.
