At CrossFit Tolerance, the gym's name is scrawled in big red lettering on one of the facility's bright blue walls. It drives home the importance of the word "tolerance," to this community, which means several things to the trainers and exercisers who call this gym a second home. For one, CrossFit Tolerance isn't a gym that has issues with anyone who not being fit enough or old or young enough to use their equipment. Here, the inclusive atmosphere is a key to success that encourages everyone to work toward the best fitness of their lives, regardless of their starting point. Inside these walls, tolerance is also about accepting soreness, physical exertion, and the feel-good burn that comes with finishing a tough rowing machine session or holding a rival's unblinking stare. The gym's coaching staff also works hard to prevent injury in their client, helping beginners get acclimated and watching each exerciser to make sure they use correct technique.

After putting their heads together back in 2005, sisters Lynn Grissom and Susan Bucci came to open the first Little Gym in Rhode Island. The concept was simple: positively impact kids by helping build confidence and self-esteem through noncompetitive, fun classes. The result was a curriculum-based program that got kids aged 4 months to 12 years active through a variety of classes. At the Smithfield location, instructors focus on "movement, music, learning, and laughter," during courses held six days a week.

At Mulligan's Island Golf & Entertainment, 60 covered hitting stalls look out onto 11 acres of target areas, a sprawling configuration that helped earn the facility a spot on Golf Range Magazine's 2011 list of top 100 ranges. Golfers can use the driving range's 20 heated stalls to practice during off-season months without worrying about cooler temperatures stiffening their swings, or they can invest in lessons that use digital teaching methods such as computerized swing analysis to lower handicaps. A USGA-rated course tests participants with nine holes of regulation-size golf, while an 18-hole pitch-and-putt short course and two mini-golf courses help golfers calibrate aspects of their short game. The practice mecca also tests swings at 10 batting cages that feed baseballs and softballs at adjustable speeds to suit both little leaguers and professionals fishing for compliments.

Legion Bowl & Billiards preserves retro entertainment with 18 duckpin bowling lanes, eight tournament-sized billiards tables, and ticket-spewing arcade games. The alley’s streamlined design hearkens to the tailfins of a 1957 Chevy Bel-Air or the cover art of a mid-century sci-fi novel. Traditional scoring projectors lend to the classic ambiance at the lanes, which fill with the clatter of scattering pins.

Television screens in the pool hall broadcast live coverage of New England sports teams, and the spitfire rasp of electric guitars occasionally cuts through from live musicians at the adjoining Legion Pub. The kitchen staff fires selections from a menu of burgers and grilled pizzas, which pair with draft beers or cocktails. On the alley’s outdoor deck, guests click together glasses or toss rocks at poets attracted by the breezy summer evenings.
