Voted No. 4 in the Top 10 Birthday Chains for Kid Birthday Parties in 2010 by Parents magazine, Pump It Up pulses with inflatable play sets and actually encourages kids to bounce off the walls. Within the indoor playground, a stalwart staff oversees the neighborhood of bounce houses and air-filled playthings, such as a classic bounce castle and slick inflatable slide that cushions children's heartfelt reenactments of Cool Runnings. On weekdays, families can pop in for open jump sessions, or tote along their own mini entourage for birthday-party packages complete with private rooms and complimentary invites. Parties come as straightforward packages or as themed events that place the birthday child in structured story adventures where they take on the role of a mighty and clever superhero or pirate captain that drank too much salt water.
Like a paperweight resting on a pile of love letters, this golf-course clubhouse nurtures romance while holding down the verdant, undulating Anaheim Hills. Sunday-brunch companions can clink chalices of champagne and scan a spread of delicacies from across the globe, including breakfast beloveds, such as eggs Benedict and belgian waffles, and cooked-to-order pastas and omelets. Alaskan king-crab legs preside over distinguished fleets of norwegian smoked salmon and jumbo shrimp as insubordinate oysters pile into half shells for a wild ride down tempestuous throat slides. Succulent cuts of carved-to-order prime rib and honey-cured ham sate carnivorous noshers, and blazing plates of bananas flambé employ heat to help finish off feasts, much like how flat-irons finish off hairdos and toaster ovens finish off plastic forks.

Through its rotating lineup of exhibits and engaging events, MUZEO—which means “museum” in the international language of Esperanto—fosters diversity and cross-cultural understanding by making culture accessible to every member of the community. The 25,000-square-foot complex encompasses the original 1908 Carnegie Library as well as a brand-new art-gallery space, and it plays host to three different traveling exhibitions per year. One current offering, Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs: Freedom in America, produced by the International Spy Museum and running through Monday, September 16, 2013, mines the rich history of international espionage and its current role in our nation. Though two free docent tours are offered with admission on Saturdays and Sundays, most visitors peruse the exhibits at their own pace. Check out the calendar of events to view museum goings-on by date.
