Las Fajitas Mexican Grill might serve up its Mexican dishes fast, but that's where the similarities between this eatery and typical fast-food places end. Along with the chefs' attention to using the freshest ingredients, from the vegetables to the boneless, skinless chicken breasts and slow-roasted pork, they also remain health conscious. All of the authentic Mexican recipes get their flavors from only fresh vegetables, with no artificial flavors or enhancements. The menu includes everything from burritos and tacos to fresh seafood and breakfast options.

Professional pilots at the FAA-approved Royal Aviation flight school instruct students on taking to the skies, guiding them in manning a small aircraft on discovery flights. Before soaring through the atmosphere, first-time fliers undergo an hour of private ground instruction, in which an experienced instructor teaches them the basics of plane operation and imparts tips on overcoming sky rage. During the airborne portion of the lesson, customers can bring along a friend or family-member sidekick and brave the skies for a 60-minute aerial voyage. With step-by-step guidance from the instructor, students launch a four-seated Cessna 172 aircraft from the John Wayne Airport, whizzing past confused birds and dipping through cumulus clouds. Postlanding, students can record technical tips and any superhero sightings in their flight logbook.
