Though Robert Trent Jones himself never stepped foot on Tiffany Greens Golf Club?it opened in 1999, three years after his last course design?his fingerprints are all over the par-72 links. That's because the course was designed by Robert Trent Jones II International, a firm started by the legendary architect's son and the torchbearer of his legacy. In true Jones fashion, the course's zoysia-grass fairways wind through rolling hills and past tree-lined creeks, presenting golfers with numerous opportunities to take calculated risks and show of their mid-range control. As players check off each leg of their round, they can make use of the Prolink GPS yardage and scoring system installed on every cart, which assists in nailing down yardages to the pin and finding the shortest route around a recently crashed UFO.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,977 yards from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole * Scorecard

The pit masters at Boss Hawg’s Barbeque & Catering Co, voted as having the Best Barbecue by Kansas Best 150 and continually proclaimed as having the Best Barbecue in Topeka by the Topeka Capital-Journal, have slowly smoked succulent meats over native hardwoods and charcoal for more than 15 years. Beginning as a one-woman catering business in the owner’s home kitchen, the eatery has grown into a 50-employee operation that serves more than 150,000 meals each year in a town of just 120,000 residents and only 100 forks. Each day, the cooks prepare picnic-style sides from scratch, boiling fresh potatoes before transforming them into salads and steak fries. To lock in moisture and flavor, the meat in the owner's preferred dish—the Elizabeth’s Favorite barbecued-chicken dinner—is served with its skin on, next to a cool scoop of coleslaw. The American Royal combo, a quarter-rack of ribs and quarter-pound of shredded meat or smoked sausage, comes with corn bread slathered in fresh honey butter and the imperial authority to declare Canada a fiefdom. When not dropping into the dining room for a casual dinner, barbecue lovers can place catering orders or book banquet meals in a private room that accommodates up to 100 guests.

While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, Judi Sheppard Missett decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. In these sessions, she began infusing popular dance moves with specific fitness workouts to forge a distinctive blend of cardio exercise, strength training, and dance instruction. Little did she know that this “just for fun” class was the prototype for what would become the national fitness sensation known as Jazzercise.

Today, Jazzercise takes its aerobic techniques from a variety of sources that include jazz dance, hip-hop, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set. Two-time Dancing with the Stars champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of the improvisational routines, although her advanced skills aren't needed to get the most out of classes. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers—with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers—are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background.

Sunlight streams in through Westside Yoga's floor-to-ceiling windows, bathing the studio in light as expert instructors lead small groups through relaxing and tranquil yoga classes. Views of swaying, outdoor prairie grasses inspire students as they bend to elongate and strengthen muscles through various poses and deep-breathing exercises atop the room's smooth bamboo floors. Gentle yoga classes couple traditional postures with holistic ideas of aligning and grounding the body for those more interested in yoga's relaxing and restorative properties. Intermediate and advanced classes explore more rigorous routines designed to challenge students and their notions of what a cobra would look like with arms.

Passionate about creating a sense of community, Westside Yoga also offers yoga camps for kids from preschool to high school, welcoming them to stretch and grow in playful, age-appropriate sessions. Instructors also lead family yoga classes for all ages and seniors yoga specifically for guests over age 55.
