Slipstream Aviation's instructors merge their standard and Gold Seal certifications with thousands of flying hours and a fleet of acclaimed aircraft to lead beginner and maturing pilots into the open sky. Their diverse training program caters to a range of experience levels: Discovery Flights give fledglings an invigorating taste of aviation, and advanced ratings courses help licensed pilots prove their mettle with instruments, multiple engines, or commercial aircraft. Students take flight in a fleet of three Grumman Cheetahs, which the staff selected as their main training vessel because of the craft's precise handling and refusal to take detours into clouds that resemble fishing holes. Meanwhile, a Garmin 430 simulator lets fliers test their skills and prove their instrument efficiency while remaining firmly earthbound.
The instructors at Core Group Fitness understand that getting buff doesn't happen by simply visiting the gym; rather, they see it as a process inextricably linked to camaraderie and community. This team-based approach comes out in their group classes and boot camps, where cohorts of exercises grunt their way through TRX suspension training or build lean muscle and improve flexibility with functional workout regimens. They pair strength training with cardio work during their interval training sessions, which torch fat thanks to metabolism-boosting exercises. In addition to group classes, instructors also build rapports with individual students during personal training sessions, helping clients prep for their first marathon or last street fight with the meter man.
Sugar Ridge Winery's rolling acres once held everything from white-speckled fields of cotton to waving meadows of hay. Then owners Don and Michele Andrews planted their first rows of varietal and transformed the land into a verdant, nectar-giving paradise. Michele inherited the acreage from her grandparents and honors their legacy through a red heritage wine that fills the tasting room's antique wooden shelves alongside chardonnays, tempranillos, and cabernets. This pride in the vineyards' history shines through in the decor as well: Outside the tasting room, a wood-sided well stands flanked by giant urns. Shaded by trees, a tranquil fountain babbles on a stone patio and a resident cat and kittens prowl the grounds, guarding the grapes and playing cat games such as Parcheesi. In addition to public and private wine tastings, Don and Michele also host tasting afternoons paired with an outdoor massage and encourage winery visitors to pack their own picnics.
