As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Happy Hippo All-Vehicle Wash is part of the Washman family of facilities that's cleaned nearly 14.5 million vehicles, its name a playful reference to its ability to accommodate oversized rides such as RVs and buses. Of course, smaller cars are welcome, too, and all vehicles are de-grimed using a combination of eco-friendly cleansers, computer-controlled sprays—instead of brushes—recycled, filtered water, and soft cloths. Happy Hippo's touchless dryers ensure a spot-free finish, and, much like a visit to the DMV in a dream, the entire process often takes only three minutes or less.

Garden-pleasers include awesome soil with just a pinch of cow manure ($3 for a one-cubic-foot bag), way-out mulch ($2.50 for a one-cubic-foot bag), hardcore rocks like pumice ($4 for a one-cubic-foot bag) and radical Montana round rainbow pebbles ($7 for a 40-pound bag). And don’t forget to get some moss rocks to please neighborhood children ($0.10/lb., $180/ton). While contemplating how many zeppelins one ton of lilies would fill (Asiatic bulbs, three for $5), sip on some coffee from the on-site café where you can sample a cup for free ($10 a pound for purchase).

At Liepold Farms, groups navigate the twists and turns of a six-acre corn maze while children dip their toes in a sandbox full of corn kernels. The farm celebrates the fall with a myriad of seasonal activities including the corn maze, a pumpkin patch, and hay rides. The pumpkin patch showcases pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, and colors, each good for a different task including baking and carving a replica of your mail carrier's face. Or, for those not as keen on keeping pumpkins intact, the pumpkin-pult allows guests to hurl a pumpkin into a target using a giant rubber-band catapult. Those who hit the target get to take home their own pumpkin for future catapult practice.
