Paradise Rental Boats carefully curates fleets of Yamaha, Bayliner, and Sun Tracker boats, so that sun-kissed riders can jet across the sparkling waters of Indiana’s Lake Monroe and Georgia’s Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona at their leisure. The company's vessels range from party barges and yachts—which hold groups of up to 26—to the smaller, two-person WaveRunner, whose highly responsive steering suits drivers trying to chase down and catch their fish dinner. Onboard radios and CD players let mariners groove to their favorite tunes, and the company also rents optional accessories for water sports, such as wakeboards, water skis, and artificial bait for licensed fishermen.

The Cartersville Parks and Recreation Department's summer pool passes inspire aquanauts to swim, splash, and celebrate the sunny season. Swimmers share splash space in Dellinger Park's Olympic-size pool (open from May 21 through September 5 and closed Wednesdays), which provides ample room for to-scale reenactments of favorite Spanish Armada battles. A diving well eases flying leaps, and a leisurely stroll through the shallows of the wading pool allows enough time to contemplate snack selections at the concession stand.

An all-ages and all skill-levels watersports park, Terminus Wake Park celebrates the fun art of wake-boarding and water-skating, kneeboarding, and waterskiing in three man-made lakes designed for beginner to advanced-level. Three state-of-the-art cable systems hang from steel pylons above the varied aquatic obstacles on all three. The beginner course eases visitors into the water with a partial cable system and low speeds, the intermediate ring features a full clockwise system and a few stunts, and the third, the expert course, is dotted with rails, sliders, and ramps—many of which are exclusive to Terminus. Each cable is powered by an electric controlled variable speed motor, ensuring even speeds—regardless of the number of riders. Guests can opt to rent all needed equipment on site. Terminus also hosts summer watersports camps and private parties for birthdays and youth events.

Like an oasis on the outskirts of the city, Woodland Hills Golf Club envelops visitors in 167 acres of serene rolling hills. The semi-private, 18-hole club challenges even experienced players, with contoured bentgrass greens and rippling fairways requiring an array of different approaches. Players must also reach into their bag of shotmaking skills in order to avoid a number of strategically placed bunkers and picturesque water hazards.

Sue Hopkins doesn't teach yoga for fitness—after adapting the art to combat her back pain and completing several training programs to become a Professional Yoga Therapist, she champions its wellness benefits. Alongside the devoted instructors at Etowah Valley Yoga & Yoga, Etc., she strives to demonstrate how regular practice can adapt to and counteract various health concerns from joint pain to anxiety. In the interest of personalization, the staff keeps their classes small. The teachers at the original Etowah Valley Yoga venue might lead the prolonged holds of Yin yoga, the inversions of Level II yoga, or the whisper-soft self-hugs of gentle yoga. At Yoga, Etc., teachers focus on safety and accessibility for clients of all backgrounds. Seated tai chi and chair-yoga classes provide ample support for soothing poses, while "Don't Fall" seminars cover tips for enhanced balance and everyday movement. As the head of a registered yoga school, Sue also enables her students to earn their 200- or 500-hour teaching certifications.
