Trees draped in spanish moss catch the wind along the edges of the fairways at Shadowmoss Plantation Golf Club, where designer Russell Breeden sculpted a 6,701-yard course into the verdant grounds of a former plantation. Throughout the par-72 layout, ponds and streams ripple on the borders of nearly every hole, often forcing golfers to choose from taking a conservative line, challenging the hazard with a big swing, or releasing their golf ball to a family of catfish. Breeden's artful use of waterways is most noticeable at the par-5 eighth hole, where a stream splits to cut across the center of the fairway and wraps two watery prongs around both sides of the hole to add pressure as golfers contemplate their approach to the green. Bermuda-grass fairways and greens await golf balls that steer clear of the course's water hazards and the various sand traps occasionally populated by disoriented sunbathers.

Before taking to the first tee, clubbers can warm up their swings and rehearse their putter-twirling routine at a practice complex that includes a driving range and a putting green. To keep golfers fresh during rounds, the club offers on-course beverage service and a full-service snack bar and lounge.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par-72 course * Length of 6,701 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 72.3 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 131 from the farthest tees * Five tee options * Scorecard

The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or cha-cha. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.

Charleston Bicycle Company equips the helmeted masses with their two-wheeled counterparts thanks to the shop staff's more than 45 years of combined cycling experience. The standard tune-up primes spoked speedsters for the riding months ahead. A specialized technician will assess your bike's mechanical operation, inspecting for damages and receding hairlines along its frame. Lubrication of the pivot points and shift components optimize agility, and a bracket tweaking facilitates smooth spinning. In addition to a thorough tightening of levers, shifts, seat posts, derailleurs, and more, a road-warrior mechanic inspects brake-pad surfaces, ensuring they are still as sturdy as a celebrity gladiator’s redwood treehouse. Once completed, your entire bike receives a mild cleaning of frame, parts, and wheels before conquering the concrete with milder modesty. Charleston Bicycle Company can usually primp your ride and turn it around within two to three days—sometimes on the same day.
