At Steps to Learning Preschool, kids grasp the concept of free choice at an early age. That's because instructors promote "freedom within a structure," stocking each daily schedule with fun, educational choices for infants and young toddlers as well as preschoolers. Throughout the day, children take their pick of structured activities, including arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor exploration, and story time. The structure fosters the development of individual talents and autonomy while allowing youngsters to practice social interaction.

Since 1980, Sam's To Go's staff has been assembling sandwiches stacked high with premium deli meat and cheese. From within the K-Mart Shopping Center, they bake loaves of bread fresh every day, then pile on everything from hot pastrami to cotto salami, capicola, bologna, and cheese. The Santa Barbara–staple eatery now has four locations, several of which have outdoor tables where clients can soak up the warm sunshine and taunt birds with their ice cold beers.

In bowling, the perfect strike requires a careful calculation of force, spin, and positioning—but Zodo's - Bowling & Beyond injects fun into the physics lesson with 24 gleaming lanes ready to take whatever you can throw at them, provided you've donned the proper fluorescent footwear (each rented shoe half-red, half-green).

Healthy competition and the joy of yelling 'strike!' are pretty entertaining all on their own, but Zodo's doesn't stop there—Glow Bowling's atmospheric touches include black lights, a live DJ, and fog. Twice-daily happy hours and 40 on-tap beers keep spirits high, and a menu of gourmet pizza, fresh salads, burgers, and more creative fare provide more sustenance than a feast of felled pins.

Arthur Murray Dance Studio has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and the Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, the Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with an instructor as the teachers assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.

On Tuesdays, boxes show up on doorsteps complete with enough premeasured seasonings, locally sourced and organic ingredients, and humanely raised proteins for up to three meals. Boxes also include recipe cue cards and five-minute video demonstrations to make sure newbie cooks don't confuse the washing machine for the oven. And to ensure dinner tastes new and exciting, the service's menu changes weekly, offering items such as chili-lime chicken with roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli, lemon-ginger pork, and blue-cheese steak.
