The one-hour golf lesson, which includes all course or practice-facility fees, requires golfers to bring their own clubs to have their golf needs assessed and addressed by a PGA®-certified instructor. The private schooling may include tips on proper alignment, grip, posture, ball position, swing mechanics, and more. Cloud 9 has partnered with golfing professionals and tee-off locales all over the country, including four course and instructor choices in the Vegas area—Silverstone Golf Club with Gary Knapp, Red Rock Country Club with Tom Fisher, Angel Park Golf Course with Tom Leese, and the Revere Golf Club in Henderson with Chris Eastman.

In 1976, Joan Barnes—a California mom frustrated with the lack of spaces where she could take her kids for safe and age-appropriate play time—took matters into her own hands and founded Gymboree Play and Music. In the decades since Gymboree’s founding, Joan’s vision of a safe place where youngsters could build confidence and creativity has come to fruition and spread to 30 countries around the globe. Staffed by attentive and expertly trained instructors, each Gymboree outpost adheres to a curriculum of activities designed by experts to foster the development of children's cognitive, physical, and social skills through structured play and close readings of Goodnight Moon. The staffers also conduct entertaining classes for parents, newborns, and children under 1 year that cover subjects ranging from music to sports, imparting valuable lessons of imagination and physical activity to developing minds. To further set apart her business, Barnes employed nationally renowned playground designer Jay Beckwith to design the proprietary play equipment at her centers.
John Mull Meats lays the foundation for tantalizing home-cooked meals that burst with tender flavors of fresh chopped, sliced, and cased meats.

Schoolchildren can also use thin-sliced lunch meats ($2.49–$5.69/lb.) to barter for playground control.
Inspired by the grins of their own family, husband-and-wife shutterbugs Josh and Jen capture images that commemorate milestones and celebrate special occasions. Specializing in natural shots with a creative and playful twist, the trained photographers snap portraits of stylish soulmates, high-school seniors, and families in front of on-location backdrops, from a serene park to a bustling cityscape to the innermost recesses of a pet schnauzer’s psyche. After the session, customers sift through the boutique-style photos in-studio or online, before selecting favorite images for à la carte prints.
Shots ring out across the Wild Wild West paintball field as players belly-flop behind hay bales and crouch-walk through the saloon. On a second field, players storm a castle and sprint past water towers, racing to the center to capture the flag planted there. Those two battlegrounds at Las Vegas Premier Paintball are ripe with chances for team strategy, and a third, smaller field dotted with inflated obstacles creates a fast-paced game that requires you to be fleet-footed and quick on the draw.
Five days a week, teams suited up with full facemasks engage each other in just such battle across the facility's outdoor fields. With the addition of overhead lights, the center now stays open later on Wednesday nights, allowing players to battle away from the sun’s heat. Paintballing groups of 10 or more can also reserve the field of their choice for birthdays, bachelor parties, or corporate team-building events.
