For the last 55 years, Kenmore Lanes has given locals a safe, family-friendly place to celebrate birthdays, engage in friendly competition, or just drop by for some pancakes and pin-demolition. Besides containing a whopping 50-lanes, and on-site pro shop, and a 20-game arcade, the alley also boasts a full-service restaurant serving everything from early bird breakfast specials to bleu cheese burgers. Meanwhile, in the 11th frame lounge, adults will find plenty of excuses to hang around well-after the last strike, including nightly bartender specials, dart boards, and a juke box. And, if they stick around, players can enjoy free games of pool every night from 10 p.m. to closing or until their mom comes to pick them up.

The Outdoor Adventure Center's wildly experienced guides have led groups off the grid for more than a quarter century, pursuing rugged fun in the scenery and fresh air of mountains, rivers, and coastlines. Explorers at heart, the staff boldly launch kayaks into the ocean around the San Juan Islands and conquer the frothy waters of the scenic Skykomish River, known for its beginner-friendly rapids, migrations of spawning merpeople, pool and drop areas, and breathtaking views of 5,000-foot mountain peaks. Horseback and hiking trips delve into the lush woods, and nature photography excursions pause to celebrate the beauty of the wilderness near Index. The core team of 14 guides takes safety seriously, most with certifications from the American Canoe Association, training in wilderness first aid, CPR, and swiftwater rescue, and life vests tattooed over their chests.

The ability to swim allowed humanity to explore the seas, discover pearls inside oysters, and evolve arms devoid of inflatable muscles. Wave Aquatics Centers’ instructors understand the importance of such a skill, aiming to impart it within children and adults alike across the community. Working as a nonprofit organization fueled by the common purpose of providing students of all ages with a slew of programs and lessons, the staffers share their wisdom in Juanita and Redmond High School pools. They train their charges in competitive swimming, maintaining three teams, including a year-round Masters-level team taught by professional coaches and reformed mermaids.

From camps to paddle races to standard rentals, Northwest Paddle Surfers' watersport professionals help create laid-back adventures with a fleet of stand-up paddleboards.

Elsewhere, Paddle Flow Yoga classes held on paddleboards challenge participants to stretch and breathe deeper.

It's like a scene from a secret agent film. A man in a black wetsuit shoots out of the lake, propelled by a jet of white water coming from a pack on his back. He arcs into the air, flips head over heels like a dolphin, and splashes back down into the crystalline depths.

This type of high-adrenaline excitement is commonplace at AV Watersports, a sporting company that deals in thrills such as flyboarding, jet ski rentals, and innertubing. Its flyboards are comparable to jetpacks and can propel wearers into the air, or horizontally across the surface of the water while they stand on a board. Using a personal watercraft for propulsion underwater and in the air, Flyboard riders stand on a board that is connected with a hose through a jetski. As water is routed to a pair of jet ski boots, riders fly into the air or can dive headfirst through water. Instructors are readily available to acquaint newbies to the unique aquatic sport, and to acquaint them with the customs of the cloud people they'll soon be meeting.
