Arranged on stacks of wall-mounted shelves, untouched pieces of pottery wait for artists to apply creative expressions with paint. At two locations, resident artists daub dishes, vases, and character figurines with colorings and patterns. Parents seeking keepsakes can complete a “precious impressions” project, where they mold and paint a clay imprint of their child’s hands or feet. Other projects feature fused-glass jewelry and dishes, and intricately tiled mosaics.
Pari Land combines the education of school with the fun of a playground to create an all-encompassing space they've dubbed an "edutainment center." Inside the safe, enclosed environment, kids aged 6 months to 10 years soak up reading, math, and social skills while developing physically during fun, hands-on classes. My First Experience classes join toddler hands with nontoxic paints and paper and court their eardrums with whimsical rhymes, and Pari Club classes oversee children aged 3 to 6 constructing moving contraptions with computers. Mommy and Me dance classes give parents and children a chance to tap toes together to simple nursery rhymes over ample floor space. Beyond class confines, kids can also splash around as they learn about the water cycle on an interactive water exhibit and flex their artistic abilities on a giant light-bright wall. The activities don't only entertain little ones, but also give parents the chance to kick back with free WiFi in the restaurant and lounge.
Burning calories and enhancing coordination, the music-fueled workouts of Fit in 60 can be tailored to suit new exercisers, injured athletes, and moms-to-be. Fit in 60's founder discovered firsthand how focused, floor-based isometrics could sculpt muscles as long and flexible as a dachshund doing a gymnastics routine. However, these exercises didn't always raise the heart rate enough to provide a cardiovascular workout. Disappointed, she began to experiment. Lo and behold, when the moves were flipped upright, she could pair them with dance elements, which solved the heart-rate problem and added a dose of excitement.

It’s simple enough to run three miles around your neighborhood, but why do that when a Healthy Races run could potentially involve a giant inflatable killer whale, mud-soaked ballerinas, or a mischievous leprechaun? Healthy Races injects each of its events with a crucial ingredient that is sadly all-to-often missing from exercise: fun. Though the company's events change based on the season, it has previously held mud runs, glow stick highlighter runs, Oktoberfest beer runs, and St. Patrick's Day–themed 5Ks.
