Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let The Man tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength and cardio equipment, which features built-in TVs and other media diversions. For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling. For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.
One hour from New Orleans, Splendor Farms sits on 75 acres near the Bogue Chitto River. The working farm houses goats, horses, chickens, and a miniature-long-haired-dachshund kennel; guests can gather eggs and pick vegetables from the garden or just relax by the pool. Each of the bed and breakfast’s rooms has a private entrance and its own personality—the Ponderosa room has a distinct cowboy theme, with Western prints on the walls and an equestrian quilt, whereas La Louisiane is more romantic, with flowers and candles scattered around the room.
Every morning, you’ll wake up to a farm-hearty breakfast, with eggs, grits, and bacon making regular appearances on the menu. After eating your fill, head outside to visit the farm’s petting zoo, which has friendly miniature horses, alpacas, and burros. In nearby Covington, five-star restaurants abound, as do art galleries, bookstores, and boutiques.

Combining entertainment, information, and breath-taking views, Cruise Orange Beach's captains take passengers to the waters of the Alabama Gulf Coast for an afternoon of adventure. The captains helm two 50-foot vessels?the Ann-Sea and Dolphin-Fun?ferrying passengers of all ages on fun-filled cruises that might result in sightings of leaping dolphins and sunbathing krakens. Best of all, midway through the trip, the crews pull the two boats side by side and incite a water war. Armed with water cannons, kids and adults alike soak the opposing group?or their own leader if they've declared mutiny?in a spirited water fight. Passengers will even get a chance to handle a live blue crab plucked from one of the scattered crab traps before returning to shore.
Although these sightseeing trips comprise most of Cruise Orange Beach's outings, the captains also offer private charters for visitors looking to scuba dive, parasail, or view the sunset while bobbing in the water.
Captain Curtis Bush practically grew up on the waters running from Dauphin Island to Pensacola. He spent his youth fishing the Gulf and learning to navigate the artificial reefs. As the owner and captain of Max Drag Charters, he now shares this passion with small groups of individuals seeking to enjoy a half- or full-day excursion out on the waters, where deep-sea fishing and soothing ocean views provide a welcome escape from everyday landlocked life. Passengers can sink into the vessel's padded seats as they relax with a drink and patiently wait to reel in a sizable red snapper?the area's most prominent fish?or anything from a spotted seatrout to a cobia. Every excursion includes full access to the bait and tackle and assistance cleaning any catches.
