Enveloped in cool lake winds and showers of sunlight, Bait Master Charters' boats have sailed the waters of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario since 1992. Each of the company's two fishing boats boasts cabins, private bathrooms, and decks, along with professional downriggers, outriggers, planer boards, and dipsy divers. Onboard, experienced fishermen guide customers on private fishing charters, scouring Lake Erie for walleye, bass, and perch or combing Lake Ontario for salmon, steelhead, brown trout, lake trout, and gold coins. Upon the trip's closure, the staff cleans and packages all catches so that customers can bring them home to cook.

The clatter of pins harmonizes across 24 bowling lanes as families and friends compete to see who can fill up the most frames tracked by automatic scoring computers. Friendly staffers facilitate celebration during birthday parties and instruct kids in the basics of bowling during coaching sessions. At the Strike Zone Bar and Grill, bartenders quench adults' thirsts with a full spread of libations, and Friday-night karaoke gives amateur vocalists a chance to shine between bites of pizza or sirloin burgers. Hands not holding a microphone or bowling ball can shoot cues around the center's pool table or push the buttons of an overly sensitive arcade game.

Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
