Retired NFL cornerback Ty Law has exchanged the gridiron for a far more forgiving, far more buoyant playing field. At his vast Launch Trampoline Park, visitors of all ages bounce, flip, and twirl as they burn calories and defy gravity on six jumping courts—including one designed especially for kids and two for playing dodge ball—comprised of adjoining floor trampolines and angled wall trampolines. There’s also a mammoth foam pit so that you can be assured a soft landing should you attempt any feats of aerial wonder. Launch even encourages kids to bounce off the walls if they'd like, and it's one of the largest trampoline parks in Hartford.

As fitness remains one of Law’s top priorities, he offers fitness classes that provide low-impact workouts while incinerating up to 1,000 calories each bouncy hour. For those seeking a break from bouncing, the park has a redemption arcade and a full service café. Parents can keep an eye on their children from the second-floor observation deck.

Founded by an entrepreneur who had grown tired of tedious business trips, Fly GForce jets travelers across the East Coast—or teaches aspiring pilots how to do it themselves. Training programs at the facility are led by chief flight instructor and 35-year aviation veteran Anthony Cresswell, captaining a staff of Gold Seal-certified mentors who help students of all ages earn their wings flying Piper Warriors. If clients would rather have someone else do the flying, Fly GForce also provides personal air travel to East Coast destinations, from Portland, Maine down to Washington, DC.

Co-founders Alana La Fleur and Vanessa Jennings put the mission of VAz Media right in the name: V stands for "Vanessa," A for "Alana," and Z represents "everything for women, from A to Z." The duo established their event-planning company to give women a place to relax and socialize in a supportive environment, free of stress or the incessant pandering for their votes from mayoral candidates. La Fleur and Jennings also partner each event with a charity, raising funds for organizations such as the Connecticut chapter of the National MS Society and CT Women’s Education and Legal Fund.
