Designed by famed course architect William Bell in 1933, the Lakewood Country Club has been testing the mettle of golfers for nearly eight decades. Today, players still roam the championship-caliber course, sending balls flying toward 18 holes spread across 7,033 yards of well-manicured grass. Along the way, they encounter several challenges, including precision par 3s and newly installed (but still treacherous) bunkers. All of this helped earn Lakewood the reputation as one of the finest courses in southern Los Angeles, an honor reflected by the course's numerous appearances on LA County's Course of the Year lists.

A nonprofit organization, Shoestring City Ranch is run by instructors that dedicate their time to teach teamwork and leadership skills to city-slicker kids by having them work with rescued animals. The environmentally friendly ranch hosts clinics on communicating with pets and group horseback-riding classes that teach everyone from tots to adults how to groom and ride. They also host fun events in addition to classes, such as the 5K Gallop and 1-Mile Tot Trot and a Roping Clinic 101, where a professional rodeo cowboy teaches students how to use a lasso.
The certified instructors at Tom Vo's Taekwondo Academy believe that developing good character and leadership skills are just as important as learning to punch and kick. At their all-ages martial-arts school, they teach both children and adults discipline, respect, and how to defend themselves using the moves of traditional martial arts as well as verbal defenses. Classes also offer an opportunity for students to let off stress and recharge their minds.
Buena Park Bicycles Co. operates two locations—Fullerton Bicycles and Buena Park Bicycles—and that still isn't enough floor space to showcase all of their bikes. Their ample stock canvasses almost every inch of the show-room floor, expanding to the walls and hanging from the ceiling amid bike gear, accessories, and apparel from renowned brand names including Specialized, Giant, Fuji, Bell, and Nike. The knowledgeable staff helps customers choose from road cycles, dirt bikes, or BMX rides, throwing out recommendations about which bike has the best shocks and which won't turn back into a unicycle at midnight. Also accommodating patrons who have already been paired with a two-wheeled steed, the certified maintenance professionals keep bikes rolling with expert tune-ups and free estimates for repairs.
