A holiday tradition and celebrated ballet, The Nutcracker entrances audiences with stunning choreography, elaborate sets, and a memorable score composed by classical-music legend Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. During his timeless tale of love and walnuts adorned with purple hearts, the Covington Regional Ballet brings to life the story of Clara as she follows her beloved wooden soldier from the Land of Snow into the Land of Sweets for a riveting yuletide adventure. Waltzing snowflakes, marching toy soldiers, and mischievous mice pirouette around a glowing Christmas tree, interacting with fellow dancers through exaggerated facial expressions, fluid dance moves, and two cans connected by a ribbon from a ballet slipper.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Golf is a sport of physical precision and aerial dynamics—won and lost upon the pendulum of your swing. Honey Creek Golf Club's par-72 course features thousands of yards of greenery designed to challenge everyone from first-time clubbers to full-time swingers. The scrupulously maintained course's scenic fairways, challenging slopes, and TifEagle Bermuda greens require patience and an arsenal of shots to conquer. To help carry the burden of lugging around a golf bag filled with iron, wood, and Ziploc bags full of lead dental fillings, Honey Creek Golf Club will let you borrow a motorized cart from its stable of purebred golf carts. Call in advance to schedule your tee time.

The Great Bull Run brings the thrill of Pamplona's historic event to cities across the United States. Modeled after the Running of the Bulls, this one-day event enables participants to race live bulls, keeping one step ahead of the charging animals to finally prove that toes are better for running than hooves. While the historic Pamplona event has had few serious injuries in its 102 years of existence, The Great Bull Run staff takes even more precautions to ensure runners stay smiling from beginning to end. Additionally, the bulls are given the full respect they deserve, and are not antagonized or harmed before, during, or after the run.

Following the race, runners and newcomers can gather together for a good old-fashioned food fight. Tomato Royale arms entrants with juicy fruit that they can fling at each other. Additional post-run activities include an after-party, live entertainment, and games as well as food and beverages.

Starting in the mangrove swamps of South Florida as Tarzan’s Cup, The Jungle Cup tests runners’ warrior instincts and brute strength with a bevy of jungle-inspired challenges. Lone wolves, coed pairs, or teams of four take on the 5K course’s rivers of mud and swinging vines with the hope of winning the coveted Jungle Cup—or at least a finisher’s medal. Obstacles vary based on the run’s location, but contestants can rest assured that their endurance will be put to the test through primal trials such as leaping over fire pits, hurling javelins, and swimming through water hazards. After the race, athletes cool down with a frosty beverage at the Jungle Party, which celebrates their victories with fire shows, hula hoop-offs, and costume contests.

Bear Creek Golf Club's 18-hole course takes golfers voyaging across 6,585 yards of rolling terrain characterized by renovated bunkers, contoured greens, and dense tree lines lining the fairways. Refurbished in July 2011, the par 72 is now carpeted with Champion bermuda grass on all of its greens to form smooth, slick putting surfaces devoid of any bumpy nettles or suspicious troll knolls. Chirping birds and whistling winds serve as the course's commentators, occasionally warning players of the scattered water hazards that reflect the skies above without ripple or wave but reveal their orb-eating desires when balls land atop their motionless surface. At the onsite snack bar, players can fuel up before rounds.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,585 yards from farthest tees
  • Course rating of 71.8 from farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 130 from farthest tees
  • Four tee options
