Raging Buffalo's adrenaline junkies have turned their athletic addiction into a successful enterprise by offering snowboarding and wakeboarding lessons to beginners and experienced riders. In the summer, their instructors take to the wake for lessons that start at the wakeboard school?open since 2001?before taking students on 15-minute riding sessions. When winter comes, the instructors dry-dock their boards in local bear caves and show students how to navigate the drifts with snowboard lessons at their ski park, which opened in 1992. Additionally, Raging Buffalo plays host to a variety of events, from rail jams to USASA competitions.

Within Cary Gymnastics & Dance Center's 4,200-square-foot facilities, instructors look on as gymnasts of all ages—from adults and teens to toddlers licking the chalk from their hands for the first time—tumble on padded floors, vault over pommel horses, and swing on high bars during open-gym hours or weekly classes. Beyond the apparatus, dance and cheer squads hone their routines safely over the mats, and athletes practice sports such as basketball, volleyball, and floor hockey at the CG Sports Center, where pitching machines hurl baseballs and softballs within a 50-foot-long batting tunnel.

Inspired Art Studio's classes take BYOB to new heights. Not only do students furnish their own wine—in one class—they also paint their own wine glasses, creating a fully DIY drinking experience. Other classes focus more on painting than imbibing, such as teaching students to mimic Van Gogh's brushstrokes or decorate clay tiles with contemporary holiday scenes. Artists Diane Wlezien and Kris Blum lead the classes, and show off their own chops in the gallery, which displays their original paintings.
