Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $10 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (up to a $4.39 value).

Eighty-four hitting stations spread out over two decks. Ten target greens, each one mapped out so players know the precise distance to each flag. Eight hitting bays equipped with TrackTee technology that charts the spin rate and distance of each shot. These are the practice resources that help golfers hone their swing—and learn more about their game—at Valley Golf Center. Named one of 2013's top 50 standalone facilities in America by the Golf Range Association of America, the practice facility also encompasses a 5,000-square-foot putting green and a practice bunker for players to hone their touch around the green. From 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week, fans, misters, lights, and shade protect players against the elements of heat or the darkness of night. The center also hosts PGA lessons and a fitting center.

Jubeelieve Indoor Playland was created just for the really young set, after the owners found few indoor play options suitable for a two-year-old. Nearly every item in this 2,000-square-foot space was designed for kids whose height could be described as knee-high or three pineapples tall. The slides and climbers are slung low, while scattered around the joint, kids play with toys made to help develop motor skills. Kids climb on the jungle gym and wave at admirers as they cruise around atop rideable toys. Parents stay in their socked feet to join in the fun or relax on comfortable seating to log onto the free wireless internet.

The instructors lead students through Bikram yoga's 26 challenging poses and two breathing exercises in a heated room, which helps purge the body of toxins and allows limbs to sink deeply into stretches. Within a studio heated to more than 100 degrees, students flow through poses that strengthen and stretch muscles, ligaments, and joints. Each posture is designed to work muscle groups needed for the next pose, building a series of interconnected movements. By temporarily decreasing blood flow to specific areas of the body, the poses send in a rush of freshly oxygenated blood to joints, organs, and limbs when yogis unfold from folds and twists, unblocking the tiny traffic jams of hemoglobin. Most yoga classes are 90 minutes long, and most studios offer flexible early morning and evening classes. Visit the individual studios' websites to see their schedules.

In their youth, Paul Fratella and Anthony Guerriero met as coworkers at a restaurant. They discussed their hopes of someday opening an eatery of their own. But as time went on, they drifted apart in life. Fratella continued along in the restaurant business, working at locations in Utah, Indiana, and Florida. Guerriero went on to work in refrigeration, and eventually traveled to Spain to study international business. And then, nearly two decades after their first pipe-dream discussions, they reconnected. With Guerriero’s business savvy and Fratella’s experience opening restaurants, the two finally had the blueprint that would breathe life into Caballero Grill.

Southwestern flavors give an edge to the eatery's American grill fare. Chefs cook steaks, burgers, and chicken breasts on a kettle grill fueled with pecan wood, which imbues each dish with a unique smoky flavor. A ceviche bar allows diners to customize their own selection of marinated fresh fish, and Sunday brunch sets out popular entrées alongside a seafood bar rich with shrimp and mussels. And though Fratella and Guerriero carefully curate their entire menu, one dish in particular holds a special place in the owners’ hearts, according to AZCentral.com. Manny’s empanadas, named for their late friend Manuel De Jesus Cabrera, commemorate their lost comrade with a recipe given to them by Manuel’s mother.

Designed by golf course architect Red Lawrence, Tres Rios Golf Course plots a 6,846-yard path through the lush foliage of Estrella Mountain Park. The 18-hole course is populated with budding eucalyptus trees and relatively sparse groves of mesquite and pine trees. The unique layout showcases a stark contrast in terrain, with desert outcroppings and rolling foothills that surround the emerald fairways and greens. Stretching 471 yards, the par-4 13th hole presents a challenging dogleg left where sentient tree branches gobble up tee shots that drift into the rough on the right. Golfers can prepare for the round by warming up swings at Tres Rios's grass driving range or putting and chipping balls at the practice green.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par-71 course
  • Length of 6,846 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 71.4 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 121 from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options
