The National Museum of Commercial Aviation sends visitors into the friendly skies without ever leaving the ground. Inside the 6,000-square-foot facility rests a collection of more than 35,000 artifacts from airlines and facilities dating as far back as the 1930s. Glass cases house a variety of dishes and flatware from mile-high kitchens, as well as timetables and ticket jackets. Meanwhile, mannequins display 200 vintage uniforms for pilots and attendants alike. Visitors can take a seat inside a Delta Airlines 727 familiarization trainer, replete with switches, gauges, and buttons. Inside they can attempt realistic take-offs and landings while navigating the Microsoft Flight Simulator housed within. The museum is also home to one of the first tug tractors, a Gate Gourmet catering truck, and the cockpit of the Eastern Airlines Martin 404 once used by singer and musician Ray Charles to travel from gig to gig along with his three million baby grand pianos.
AIRDOG Airsoft provides all the tools, real estate, and teammates required for an adrenaline-pumping session of high-stakes combat play. Today’s Groupon is good for the full airsoft experience, providing all faux-soldiers with a G36 rental gun, battery, magazine, mesh mask, and 1,000 BBs designed for maximum velocity, accuracy, and bragging rights. Once players suit up and pump up, they're free to enter the wild, obstacle-laden landscape of the spec ops jungle. Games typically take between four and six hours to complete, allowing ample time for strategy swaps and devious diversions. The competitive playing fields at AIRDOG Airsoft welcomes BB beginners and airsoft old-hands of all ages (players under age 18 must have waiver signed by a parent or guardian; players under age 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian).
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
