In 2009, Golf Digest readers chose Falcon Ridge as the 17th-best public course in the United States. Recognized time and again on a national level, Falcon Ridge's course is a trip through the rippling hills of western Lenexa. Pristine manicured Zoysia tees are at the start every hole, which lead to terrain that challenges every aspect of a player's game. It's not all about bogies and birdies, though—the course has frequent elevation changes where you can get gorgeous views that are worth the trip alone. Away from the fairways, golfers can even take some swings at Falcon Ridge's 25-station driving range or two-tiered putting area.

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,820 from the tips
  • Course rating ot 72.7 from the tips

Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let The Man tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength and cardio equipment, which features built-in TVs and other media diversions. For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling. For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.

The fragrance of sizzling burgers and roasting pizzas floods Kanz's City Pizza and Burgerz's wood-paneled dining room. Chefs hand-toss signature pizzas with 13 different toppings such as pepperoni, sausage, and pineapple and pair 8-ounce burgers with freshly cut fries and hand-breaded onion rings. More than 45 types of imported and domestic beer moisten mouths owned by people or cyborgs ages 21 and up. The restaurant regales guests with weekly special events, such as Country Open Jam Night on Wednesdays, video bingo on Thursdays, and live bands at the Lenexa location on Fridays.

At iRISE Performance, no two workouts ever have to be identical. Bootcamps and group classes spice up routines to add a social element to exercise, and rows of cardio equipment and weights allow individuals to progress at their own pace. But then the gym branches out beyond the expected. Two high-school-regulation basketball courts and one college-regulation court prompt pickup games before players step up to three powerlifting platforms to test their resolve. And anyone seeking to infuse their routine with functional-fitness moves can have a heyday in the turf room, where sleds, sandbags, a battling rope, and TRX equipment engage the core.

iRise Performance steps outside the gym too for a more holistic look at well-being. A fully functioning kitchen hosts cooking demonstrations and nutrition classes to help clients rethink their diet. And iRise also keeps exercisers from making up excuses or forging doctors notes for their trainers by giving them something precious: time. An onsite childcare room watches tots while parents and guardians blast their bodies in the gym.

In 2008, Culinary Institute of America alum Dan Janssen and four friends camped out to secure a spot in the Great Lenexa BBQ Battle. Dan immediately began training for the event, honing his recipes and asking friends and family to taste-test each smoky cut during weekend get-togethers. Great Lenexa, it turned out, was just the tip of the dry-rubbed iceberg. Over the next few years, Dan and his culinary crew refined their dishes, expanded their menu, and began raking in the ribbons—including five awards in the 2013 American Royal Barbeque Contest, taking 3rd place overall in sides and 5th place in beans.

Their barbecue is no longer a competition-only treat. The Rub Bar-B-Que & Catering makes it available to the Olathe area. Alongside classic pulled pork and beef sandwiches, Chef Dan showcases inventive dishes such as burritos filled with burnt ends, jalapeños, and pico de gallo. His menu also sports plenty for rib-enthusiasts, from 1/3 racks to full racks ideal for large groups or one very determined ant.
