Burlington Dive Center is an official PADI school, which means you can expect a few things. The most important of these, of course, is a team of dedicated instructors who teach proper safety techniques and do everything else in their power to prepare students for exploring underwater worlds. But you can also expect to have a lot of fun. It all starts with the center's Discover Scuba Diving program, designed to help total beginners feel comfortable in the water. As you progress, you'll have the chance to take on an open-water course that teaches how to breathe underwater and quickly locate the treasure room in a sunken pirate ship.

Approved by the Federal Aviation Administration for flight instruction, Burlington Aviation helps aspiring aviators to take to the skies. The outfit rigorously cares for a fleet of six aircraft. Students can rent aircraft for logging aerial hours under the watchful eye of an experienced, professional flight instructor. Burlington Airport does not have a control tower, meaning students spend less time waiting on tower clearance to take off and land and more time trying to fly higher than a pet griffin.

A member track of the American Speed Association (ASA), Ace Speedway has been entertaining admirers of amped-up autos since 1956. Updated and expanded as the racing sport sprouted, Ace Speedway now boasts a 4/10-mile oval track with 12-degree banking. Guests can wash away the work week with a sensory shower of speeding sights and rumbling sounds at the Friday–night racing series. Those who show up early will catch warm-ups and qualifying heats before taking in divisions such as Late Model, Grand American Modifieds, Mini Stock, and Souped-up Soccer Mom Vans. Flathead Fords, Southern Ground Pounders, and other exhibition classes sanctioned by ASA visit the track throughout the season, and a number of touring divisions, such as PASS All Stars, compete at Ace Speedway on occasion. To stop taste buds from complaining about missing the action, visitors can savor a hot dog with a 20-ounce drink.
