At the turn of the 20th century, bowling alleys routinely locked their doors for the summer, forcing bowlers to brainstorm alternatives. And so, in the early 1900s, a group of bowlers decided to tweak their pastime to accommodate off-season play, shrinking both bowling balls and pins. Modified rules allowed bowlers to roll their scaled-down balls three times per turn. And upon impact, the lighter-weight balls caused pint-size pins to skitter like a flock of ducks. Thus, duckpin bowling was born.

The accessible sport spread throughout the world and, near the peak of its popularity, found a home at Johnson's Duckpin Lanes in 1955. After undergoing renovations in 2009, the alley's synthetic lanes continue to delight duckpin bowlers all year long. The alley also entertains guests with an arcade, onsite snack bar, as well as personalized birthday parties, which unfold on weekdays and during weekend sessions of Glo & Bowl.

Arthur Murray's experienced instructors and owners, including some who have worked with shows such as So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing With the Stars, stand ready and waiting to teach students in the ways of balance and coordinated rhythmic motion. Bring a partner to your two private lessons or fly solo and dance with your instructor. In either case, you'll leave with a greater understanding of the dance style of your choosing. These lessons are ideal for a betrothed pair prepping for the big wedding dance or a fledgling fitness seeker looking for a fun new way to get in shipshape. Stick to a stately waltz, spicy up life with a rumba, or feel vibrant and playful with a few swing steps in your personal repertoire. Whether you're an experienced dancer hoping to brush up on certain techniques or you have two left feet for feet and two right feet for hands, private lessons at Arthur Murray Dance Studio offer bountiful, dance-based benefits. This Groupon also allows dancers to stop in for two group classes to put their newly acquired skills to the test.

Designed specifically for kids 12 and under, Monkey Joes is lined wall-to-wall with inflatables. Little ones leap across slides, jumps, and obstacle courses while enjoying a combination of fun and fitness, much like bench pressing a comedian. A team of trained staff members supervises the youngsters, so parents––who receive complimentary entry––can take a load off in one of the facility's leather chairs or work with staffers to throw the perfect birthday party in a private room.

And while fun may be their forte, these professionals name safety as their number-one priority. They corral kids aged 3 and under in a toddler-specific area and––when the day is done––use a micro-misting device to spray a safe, non-toxic cleaning solution that eliminates 99.9% of bacteria, fungi, and viruses on contact.

The ground fighting, chokes, and locks of Brazilian jiu jitsu are traditionally associated with the legendary Gracie family—and Soulcraft Brazilian Jiu Jitsu features an instructor who knows the family well. Marcio Stambowsky studied with the family and was one of just a few to earn his black belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu under the tutelage of the late Rolls Gracie. Now a seventh-degree red-and-black belt, Stambowsky and Brazilian jujitsu black belt Brad Wolfson lead a team that instructs students in jiu jitsu and muay thai kickboxing. Youngsters get in on the act as well, with kids' classes that teach self-defense, boost confidence, and demonstrate how to avoid conflicts with that kid at lunch who keeps trying to trade a fat-free Fig Newton for a chocolate-pudding pack.
