The seasoned tour guides at the Conservators’ Center in Burlington, North Carolina have had their fair share of animal adventures. It is these that help them provide guests with once-in-a-lifetime experiences with exotic wildlife, with more than 30 lions, tigers, and leopards.
Tours bring customers unique experiences, such as eye-to-eye experiences with tigers, and an "oofing", the Center's description for the earth-shaking lion's roar when they call to one another. On every tour, guides will "oof" to the lions, who often respond. Visitors will also get to observe wolves romping through the woods, and the discovery of lesser-known species such as servals and binturongs.
Being true to their mission of wildlife education, conservation, and rescue, the nonprofit Conservators' Center houses animal residents who were in need of a new home. They all live comfortable lives in this haven for wild animals.
All American’s mobile cleaning crews clear stains from Greensboro flooring using truck-mounted steam-powered cleaning equipment and biodegradable cleansers. The roughly two-hour treatment cleanses and deodorizes carpet, then applies a protective layer of Scotchgard to shield sensitive fibers from the slings and arrows of outrageous juice spills. All American combats grime with a hot-water extraction process that digs deep into floor-hair to root out stains in the shape of Gorbachev's face, adjusting heat and water flow to safely de-gunk even delicate carpets and rugs.
The Greensboro Symphony’s mighty oak has grown from the most acornic of beginnings—its story started in the 1920s with a group of musicians at Woman's College. Over the years, the symphony has grown into a cultural cornerstone of the community, with community-outreach programs, youth-involvement events, a secret volcano headquarters, and an endowment fund.
No two cities ever host the same Critical Mud 5K event. Though the race distance stays the same, the event planners litter each race with an ever-changing number of obstacles pulled from a pool of more than 150, giving runners in each city a completely different experience. Some courses might threaten competitors with slippery hills and murky rivers, while others might challenge them to traverse sticky mud bogs and climb up ropes, validating their many years of never skipping gym class. Each event is open to racers as young as 14, but the Little Mudder’s fun run give kids ages 4–13 a chance to get dirty as well. In the spectator areas, family, friends, and supporters can cheer on runners while staying clean.
The Proehlific Park Family Sports Complex and Fitness Center is a sprawling facility, whose space opens up for youth and adult programs, fitness activities, and sports. Three basketball courts and a 70-yard turf field welcome soccer and flag-football leagues. Meanwhile, the fitness center holds a weight room, spinning studio, cardio center, along with group exercise classes such as yoga, Zumba, and Pilates. While not relaxing in comfortable locker rooms complete with saunas, customers will also find free wireless and a smoothie bar in the lobby.
The Mad Platter is a spacious, comfortable studio where friends and family can paint, stencil, and sponge imagery that's wildly innovative, beautiful, or commemorates the ancient Athenian victory at Marathon onto pottery ready to be filled with flowers, pencils, or wishes. Hundreds of pottery pieces—including small tiles ($4), small figurines ($8), mugs ($10), and large handled serving platters ($45–$56)—rest atop neat wooden shelves, coyly awaiting the brushstrokes of a fetching paint-slinger. After choosing your ceramic canvas, comb the studio's collection of bristly utensils and its vat of around 100 pigments to dash and daub to your hungry heart's content. Upon completion, you'll entrust your suddenly vivid earthenware to a friendly kiln master, who will glaze and fire the piece for pickup in about 7–10 days—before its debut on a lonely mantle or gifty transfer to Grandma's dinner table.
