Crystal Cove Aquatic Center's 25-yard lap pool envelops swimmers in cool blue water, and surrounding slides, wading pools, and diving boards energize splash seekers. Fine-tune backstroke technique and practice slyly ferrying gingerbread men across rivers in the 25-yard lap pool, or hurtle down Jet Scream slides with a look of quiet contemplation on your face. Water sliders can hurtle into aquamarine depths after reaching the end of the Plunge slide, which ejects its passengers into deep water like the nervous pilot of an overburdened commercial jet.

As enthusiastic ball throwers add to a soundtrack of toppling pins, Doyle's Bowling & Lounge quiets less-impressive stomach grumbles with its in-house café. Before settling in to a cozy blue chair for two games with three family members or friends, pick up a pair of shoes from the desk and celebrate your group's matching footwear with a quick song-and-soft-shoe routine. When efforts to zero in on strikes work up an appetite, the friendly staff at the Down in the Alley Cafe will happily supply some sustenance, adorning a 12-inch pie with a topping of your choice and pouring a pitcher of soda to whet parched whistles. Add luminescent or aural intrigue to games by coordinating your trip with Doyle's live music or your own live rendition of The Wizard of Oz.

Helmed by founder Lawrence Yatch—a retired Navy SEAL who once led his platoon in securing one of the world's largest oil platforms—the instructors of Sealed Mindset Firearms Studio oversee a facility where every room upholds a training philosophy emphasizing knowledge, practice, and experience. The shooting range, for example, trains marksmen by simulating the conditions in which a defensive encounter is most likely to occur. Depending on shooters' ability levels, the range offers scenarios from simulated night to defending against multiple targets in up to a 270-degree shooting view. Other training rooms include a live-simulation room that re-creates encounters such as carjackings, a self-defense and fitness room, and a laser and dry-fire room.

Instructors use these training rooms to lead classes that range from firearms and fitness training for everyday citizens to specialized training for law enforcement and the military. Additionally, they also organize recreational immersion experiences such as Operation Geronimo, a simulated Navy SEAL mission complete with real combat gear, simulated fire, live role players, and a celebratory steak dinner with the president. Sealed Mindset also houses a children's playroom and a members' lounge.
