Within the multihued walls of Kidville’s indoor playland, tykes expand their minds, network with members of their peer group, and deplete their vast energy reserves. Babies, toddlers, and kids 6 years old or younger delve into classes developed by Kidville’s early-childhood-development gurus. Burgeoning Beethovens can swivel their hips, flex their sing-along muscles, and edit their massive music manuscripts during one of Kidville’s music and dance classes, or enlist in one of the art classes to create a piece that captures their inner rage toward broccoli. Fun and fit gym classes let tots run, roll, and hover through gauntlets of plush blocks and spongy play mats. Clasping hands and scampering legs can also roam freely through Kidville’s sprightly indoor playspace, though all munchkins must be supervised by a parent, guardian, or trustworthy primate.

Some methods of typing are classically inefficient—pecking out words with only your index fingers, for example, or staring at the keyboard and searching for the letter you need. Keyboard Pro's online typing courses help typists abandon those strategies for seamless touch-typing.

Its video-based lessons, which are endorsed by Microsoft, proceed at a custom pace, allowing for a variety of learning styles and speeds. And its focus extends beyond speed—Keyboard Pro also aids with accuracy and even helps typists improve their posture at the computer. When users pass the academy's typing exam, they receive a downloadable diploma, which they can proudly hang on their wall or the fridge of the neighbors whose own children never accomplish anything.

Founded and owned by Lindsay Pomeroy, a wine educator certified advanced by the Wine & Spirits Education Trust, The Wine Smarties educates skilled vintners and aspiring novices alike with an array of classes and comprehensive tools. In the chocolate-making course, students will learn how to stimulate the taste buds and defuse explosive sweet teeth with velvety gourmet chocolates. Boutique chocolatier Michael Von Euw teaches his students how to create artistic truffles of their own using hands-on instruction and high-quality ingredients. Following your confectionary construction, a wine aficionado will dole out insightful advice as to what wines pair well with the truffles, and why white wine pairs best with chocolate chicken and red wine with chocolate beef. Classes meet on Fridays from 6:30–8:30, and themes change every month, with the first three being Valentine's Day, Easter, and Mother's Day; additional classes will be added upon demand.

As a child, Amber Fallon discovered an old film camera in a dusty closet. It may have not looked like much at the time, but it was the spark that would ignite her imagination and passion for the rest of her life. That one tiny discovery lead her to eventually graduate from Las Vegas Academy of Performing and Visual Arts before continuing her education at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, where she mastered digital, film, and studio photography. Today she wields that expertise to capture all the magic of weddings, families, and people. Specializing in weddings and portraiture, she infuses all of her unique images with her contemporary fine-art-meets-edgy style.

Leaving the bustle of the 805 freeway, visitors to Sweetwater Farms are swiftly transported to a pastoral scene alive with the sound of hoof clopping and constant horse-centric activity. The riding school has been tutoring riders in English-, Western-, and trail-riding styles since 1985, with programs that range from beginning horsemanship to hosting full-fledged hunter/jumper shows. Trail rides saddle guests atop steady, gentle dude-ranch horses or rehabilitated mechanical bulls for tours through nature, and horse camps immerse young riders in the world of horses to build riding skills, as well as confidence and responsibility. In addition to welcoming guests to their programs, Sweetwater Farms also boards and sells horses.

When golfing legend Gary Player designed Steele Canyon Golf Club, he did so in a manner that both respected and showcased the region's natural beauty and terrain. Gary divvied the 27-hole championship course into a trio of nine-hole courses, each presenting golfers with different challenges and vistas.

Located on the Ranch Course, the signature hole, "Parachute," has players tee off from more than 175 feet above the fairway. Not to be outdone, the Canyon Course features some lofty shots of its own. Hole four, for instance, challenges players with a sloping two-tiered green, but earned the nickname "Goosebumps" for its panoramic view of the canyons.
