Cleaved through the waving meadows of Lancaster County farmland, Tree Top Golf Course beckons to golfers of all stripes with a 4,651-yard, par 65 layout. The scaled-down links allow players to squeeze in an expedited round after work, before sunset, or during theater intermissions, and nine par 4s and a 427-yard par 5 channel the feel of a full-length layout.

When Debra Sternberg first caught sight of Tom Koerner at the Doc Scantlin dance in 1987, she was smitten by his enthusiastic jitterbug. Though the duo's subsequent amorous relationship lasted only a year, their swing-dance partnership has lasted for decades. Together, they have jitterbugged and lindy hopped into the top spots in contests that include the 1994 UK Lindy Hop Championships, the 1998 Virginia State Open, and the 2010 National Living Legends of Swing Award.

Today, Tom and Debra pass on their expertise and passion at Gottaswing, their dance school that has expanded into eight locations throughout the United States. Each week, more than 500 students lay the six- and eight-count foundations for the jitterbug and lindy hop. Beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes meet six nights a week at various studios and dance clubs throughout the DC area, each equipped with a dance floor where students and a woman who looks suspiciously like Amelia Earhart can let loose . Four nights a week, the school invites students to join fellow classmates at events to dance along with DJ-curated tunes and live music.

Your Groupon covers a cleaning to get your pretzel-snappers as white as really good typing paper. The hygienists at Ashton customize cleanings for your specific gum and bone health, using medicated gels and prescription mouth rinses when necessary to ensure optimum cleanliness and minimal discomfort.

Certified trainer Chris Miller's background makes him an ideal fitness mentor. He wasn't always in shape, and like many people, he disliked the way he looked as a teenager. So, he started lifting weights and working out, transforming his body and his entire outlook on life. He found that he had more energy, enthusiasm, and optimism—things he wanted to share with others. Chris became a personal trainer, earned a slew of certifications, and eventually opened Maximum Fitness in 1995.

Along with his team, Chris works with everyone from MMA fighters to sports teams to exercisers young and old. Each person's path to fitness starts with an initial consultation, during which trainers and clients decide on a custom fitness program that matches their goals. These might include exercise plans for specific sports, post-rehab training, or general workouts that blend strength conditioning and fat-burning cardio.

Maximum Fitness's 3,030-square-foot facility hosts these customized training sessions. To accommodate all workouts, the space boasts cardio machines, kettlebells, free weights, and enough consistent gravity to go around. It's also the location for group fitness classes such as boot camp and MMA conditioning.
