At Webster Golf Club, not one but two 18-hole championship courses invite golfers to frolic among their twining streams, sandy bunkers, and devious doglegs. The par-72 east course, designed by James Harrison and Ferdinand Garbin, has welcomed cleated feet for more than half a century. Water impediments guard the putting greens on six of its fairways, including the fourth hole, where golfers must set model ships afloat to ferry their orbs across the stream that bars the way to the green. Small, fast greens and an emphasis on iron play challenge golfers as they swing their way through the course. The east course’s younger sibling, built in 1973, is the par-70 west course, where strategically rooted trees spread their leaves to block second shots.

Players looking to hone their skills head over to the Webster Range and Learning Center, which stretches out over 17 acres. The lighted center combines a 4-acre, all-grass tee, a 2,500-square-foot putting green, two practice traps, and four target greens. One hundred hitting stations at the driving range ensure that entire musical casts can bond together while whacking spheres.

East Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par-72 course

  • Length of 7,100 yards from the farthest set of tees

  • Course rating of 71.2 from the farthest set of tees

  • Slope rating of 121 from the farthest set of tees

  • Four sets of tees

West Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par-70 course

  • Length of 6,003 yards from the farthest set of tees

  • Course rating of 66.6 from the farthest set of tees

  • Slope rating of 106 from the farthest set of tees

After years of watching their youngsters climb furniture and scamper across front yards, moms Andrea and Danielle were struck by inspiration. They decided to design a safe play place where lively whippersnappers could frolic freely and parents could relax without worrying about sidewalk-scraped knees, broken lamps, or child-snatching birds of prey. Thus, Jungle Jolt?an indoor playground?was born.

The Jungle Jolt facility, described as a place with "an unusually serene atmosphere" that's "squeaky clean" by reporters from Kids Out and About, abounds with child-centric activities. There's a colorful, padded climbing structure with twisting slides and sturdy cargo nets, as well as a fenced-off racetrack rink bustling with tricycles and scooters. There's also an innovative virtual indoor playground that projects graphics, sounds, and interactive games, and a laser maze.

As youngsters cruise around on toy cars and play basketball in the sport court, parents relax in the Jungle Cafe?an onsite snack bar with coffee and kid-friendly snacks. And no matter where they are in the facility, they can take advantage of the free WiFi.

Since its 1965 founding in Venice Beach, California, Gold's Gym has dotted the globe with more than 600 locations where professional athletes and exercise newbies gather under the umbrella of personal strength. Nearly 3.5 million Gold's Gym members chart and aim for their fitness peaks, perspiring beneath the gaze of certified personal trainers or pedaling beside peers at cycling sessions. In a diverse lineup of group classes, patrons strengthen cores with Pilates, finger-paint pictures of ninjas in martial arts, and amp up heart rates along to the pulsating soundtracks of Les Mills routines.

Many Gold's Gym locations stockpile futuristic amenities, such as cardio machines with individual iPod docks and televisions that help keep patrons motivated.

Renowned standups Jim Norton, Tom Green, Orlando Jones, and the late Patrice O'Neal have all graced the stage, and regularly scheduled Open Mic nights fuel an eternal search for undiscovered talent. The club proves its commitment to local humorists in its annual Funniest Person in Rochester Contest, semester-long classes on standup comedy, and always remembering their birthdays.

Inspired by their three children, Lisa and Andy Curwin decided to create a youth center that would offer kids entertainment and education under the same roof. An elevated climbing structure dominates the multihued, easy-to-monitor space that eventually sprang from the Curwins' collective imagination. All its slides lead to the center of the building, allowing parents to keep an eye on multiple children while sitting at brightly colored tables and getting pinkies in shape for upcoming tea parties. The room is packed with plenty of other play-ready games and equipment—bounce houses where youngsters can burn off energy and break through the space-time continuum; skee-ball and basketball stations that boost hand-eye coordination and churn out redeemable prize tickets; and skate and tricycle rinks where tykes can establish new recess allegiances. Kango reinforces its play center with a full-service academy that provides programs for young children from infants to kindergartners and ensures visitors stay properly fueled and hydrated by stocking a snack bar with burgers, fries, fruit, and sweets.

Helmed by two professional dancers and a martial artist with a second-degree black belt in karate, the certified instructors at Bounce Aerobics strive to infuse each of their classes with a party-like atmosphere. They lead guests of all ages and abilities through high-energy moves in a variety of weight-lifting- and dance-based fitness classes. When they're not disguising aerobic exercises as easy-to-follow dance moves in hip-hop, Zumba, and dance fitness classes, they slow the pace down in body-and-spirit rejuvenating yoga and Pilates classes.

Their studio encompasses an urban atmosphere reminiscent of Manhattan's downtown feel. This loft-like space is outfitted with brick walls, faux streetlights, and a lifelike subway car, as well as a full-length mirror to confirm that the instructor is not actually King Kong. In the onsite boutique, friendly staff members help shoppers pick out exercise gear and gym bags from Zumba, Turbo, and Bounce Aerobics' own line.
