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. The course hosts night golf, during which clubbers tee up glow-in-the-dark balls and putt across greens illuminated only by the moon. To spread the game of golf to those at the critical age when they have to choose between golf and croquet, the course offers free rounds for children 8 and younger.

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.
Instructors at Roundhouse Martial Arts & Krav Maga equip their students with self-defense tools using martial-arts and krav maga techniques. The popular cardio-defense class features a high-intensity workout for all skill levels. The classes are available for clients of all ages, ranging from kids aged 4 and older to senior citizens.
Mötley Crüe has rocked stages for three decades with its signature mélange of intense guitar, heavy sound, and over-the-top stage outfits. Singer Vince Neil roars out lyrics over the shred-filled soundscape created by guitarist Mick Mars, bassist Nikki Sixx, and drummer Tommy Lee, creating memorable tunes that resound in the minds of listeners like the ringing of heavily tattooed bells. The concert also features Poison and influential special guest New York Dolls supplying rock-filled decibels in volume enough to satisfy the most voracious eardrums.
Regal Dance Clubs's nimble instructors teach Fred Astaires of all skill levels how to move gracefully in more than 15 styles of dance. During 50-minute private lessons, dancers navigate the 3,100-square-foot ballroom with elegant dancing staples including bolero, foxtrot, samba, and the hokey pokey blindfolded. Since private classes are one-on-one, participants can request in-depth training on a particular style of dance or learn as many techniques as they like in their allotted time. Newly seasoned students twirl into three levels of group classes—Guest, Social Ease, or Bronze—armed with the know-how necessary to move and shake with their group mates. Upon completing dual dance lessons, toe tappers can showcase skills on the springs of the unobstructed dance floor during Friday-night dancing parties, which feature songs from all eras and genres to please even the pickiest time-traveler-dance partner.
