The ping of sharp line drives and towering drives echo over the grounds at Legends Golf, where athletes of all ages compete in rounds of miniature golf and hone swings in the batting cages or at the driving range.
Golf balls trickle down topsy-turvy tracks at the 18-hole miniature-golf course, which weaves through rock faces and tiny geysers that erupt with glee any time a player misses an easy putt. Eight target greens populate the 300-yard driving range, where new Wilson Staff Range Balls touch down after taking flight from 45 synthetic mats or 35 grass tees.
Under the vaulted roof of the batting cages, nine pitching machines send baseballs and softballs speeding toward hitters as they get the most out of every at bat and discreetly argue balls and strikes with imaginary umpires. To pass the time in between mini-golf rounds or during kids' golf lessons, guests can use Legends' wireless Internet connection free of charge.

Boston Bartenders School gets its students bar ready in an authentic, fully equipped environment, providing them with the skills, knowledge, and on-the-job training to find whistle-wetting work. Pupils can fit classes to their individual schedules, opting for one week of day classes, two weeks of evening classes, four weeks of weekend classes, or any combination thereof. The majority of the class time is spent behind a realistic practice bar, complete with rows upon rows of real bottles, glassware for every kind of drink, a full complement of garnishes, and an intimidating front-door bouncer. During the 32 hours of coursework, experienced instructors teach tricks of the trade such as freestyle pouring, frozen-drink preparation, wine service, two-handed pours, and opening bottles by telekinesis. Lessons on opening and closing duties, cash handling, stocking procedures, and health regulations also acquaint students with bar-business basics.
For many people, multitasking means something similar to handling phone calls and typing at the same time. Boston Flight Simulator Academy teaches aviation’s version of multitasking—the kind that helps would-be captains see their way through a midair fog bank without running out of fuel. The academy houses both airplane and helicopter simulators, each one with four high-resolution screens that mimic the view of a pilot on the job. During simulations, Federal Aviation Administration–certified pilots and instructors accompany vistors in these simulators—typically, people with little to no aviation experience—and guide them through each immersive lesson.
Students begin with a course on the basics: flying level, turning, and climbing in altitude. After that, they can schedule classes based on specific missions, including takeoffs and landings at the airport or navigating a New Hampshire mountain range. Weather-based classes tackle scenarios from low visibility to thunderstorms, and Instrument Flying demonstrates how to safely enter and exit a cloud without popping it and causing it to spring a leak. Boston Flight Simulator Academy's simulators can help all pilots and students, regardless of experience level. Users can use both old-style steam gauge and modern glass cockpits for training, logging time, practicing flights, or meeting FAA requirements.
