The Zone gets hearts racing, blood pumping, and faces beaming with fun and challenging fitness programs for kids and adults. Offspring can work toward their dream of joining the circus during cheer and tumbling classes, where students meet weekly to explore acrobatic moves in a thrilling, controlled environment ($60/month, $60 enrollment fee). Once school's out, The Zone kids' summer camp treats rambunctious ankle-biters from kindergarten through 8th grade to 11 hours a day of sports, tumbling, and dance ($110/week, $60 enrollment fee, summer contract required). The camp provides a nearly endless array of activities, including weekly field trips and study time with certified teachers, to ensure little ones' brain muscles don't erode into Xbox-playing jelly over the long summer.

The Cherokee Caverns first started forming 300 million years ago. Today, their stalagmite- and stalactite-filled underground chambers are maintained by volunteers who open them to the public several times a year for special events, including Sunday night concerts, a Halloween trick-or-treating event, and Christmas in the Cave. (The holiday celebration makes the most of the cave's comfortable, permanent internal temperature: 58 degrees.) Below, some landmark moments in the caves' transformation from loose shells, sand, and clay into a modern-day social hub. Pre-1854: Native Americans discover the cave, as indicated by ancient torch-marks on the cave walls. 1854: A local farmer, Robert Crudington, rediscovers the caves. He noticed an eerie fog rising from the rocks covering the cave mouth. 1929: Crudington's daughter, Margaret Gentry, hosts the first public tour of the caverns. Between 1947 and 1960: Homer Harris, known as the world's tallest singing cowboy, holds a Western music show in the caves with his trick horse, Stardust. 1960s: A chef starts a restaurant in the cave mouth. Showing great self-restraint, he does not call it "Mouth Food." 1980: The restaurant burns down, seriously damaging the cave and ushering in an era of neglect and vandalism. 1990s: Volunteers take over the caverns, turning them into the event space and geological education site they are today.

The noble squires at Sir Goony's Family Fun Center engineer amusement with a sprawling facility dedicated to outdoor recreation. Towering, inflatable slides draw guests' eyes upward at the splash zone, where voyagers shatter the sound barrier in a near-vertical 27-foot plunge or jump in an attached castle-themed bounce house. An enclave of absurd obstacles?including a professorial owl and an irate tree?await to disrupt putts at the Center's two 18-hole miniature-golf courses, which runs alongside scenic water features and other cheerful decor. At Sir Goony's 800-foot go-kart track, racers hug the tire-cushioned rails, weaving in and out of fellow drivers in single or tandem karts. Guests can soothe itchy trigger fingers and don their favorite pair of sequined protective goggles at the paintball course, which promotes fast-paced action with a relatively open field populated by inflatable obstacles that supply minimal cover. The concession stand features Hilton Head hand-dipped ice cream in flavors that can include Oreo, birthday cake, and blue cotton candy.

Coal Creek Armory's defense experts supervise a 10-lane indoor range where civilians, law enforcement, and the military hone their firearms handling. A triple-filtration system extracts discharged particles and pumps back out clean air to keep shooters comfortable. Light markers at 7, 15, and 25 yards illuminate the electronically placed targets, and an armored backstop turns the sounds of bullet impact into the pleasing notes of a xylophone. Additionally, every guest gets complimentary eye and ear protection, and a flat rate for handgun rentals lets sportsmen swap out and experience different models. Beyond overseeing the range, Coal Creek's team also leads courses such as basic handgun safety, advanced marksmanship, and training tailored to security officers. The armory also encompasses a pro shop, where onsite gunsmiths repair and customize firearms.
