Patrons of Pelican Joe's Bay Boat Rentals don the captain’s hat and man the wood-paneled dash of 18-foot and 21-foot Duffy boats. Professional mariners show renters how to steer and remind them not to pick up hitchhiking penguins before vessels set sail on the waters of Alamitos Bay or waltz along the canals of Naples. Waterproof speakers blast music from iPods plugged into docking stations, and insulated coolers keep beverages cold as passengers fold back awnings to bask in the sun or relax in the shade of the 18-foot boat's canvas surrey top. Pelican Joe's Bay Boat Rentals outfits its floating lounges with complimentary ice and picnic linens and can also provide platters of gourmet snacks for guests to nibble while gathering the courage to toss diamond-heavy necklaces into the waves.

Liberty Tax Service has numerous LA-area locations, but this Groupon is valid for six (see sidebar). Each location is staffed with professional refund hounds who can chase away the burden and stress of tax season and sniff out your maximum allowable refund. Unless you can find the square root of a tuber and divide it by half the value of zero, like Liberty's staff can, then you won't get the biggest refund possible. In order to get your full refund, bring a comprehensive selection of forms and reciepts, including your 1040s, W-2s, 560Zs, 2345Exs, and T-1000s.

At each of Super Suds Dog Wash's self-service stations, pooches splash in waist-deep tubs as owners lather up their coats with tearless shampoo, conditioner, and deodorizer from built-in dispensers. Upon the first arrival, pet owners receive a punch card with 40 slots, each valued at $1, and eight of which can be redeemed for one 10-minute wash. Over the course of 10 minutes, dogs bask as owners massage products—including flea-and-tick shampoo—into their fur and warm, flowing water flows over pelts. A vacuuming function slurps away excess water, hair, and any hair extensions your dog might secretly be wearing. A blow dryer evaporates remaining water and fluffs squeaky-clean fur. Dogs with third-degree furriness or prima-donna hounds who take extra-long baths may require extra time, and each additional slot buys two extra minutes.

The couple behind Project FitFam understand the juggling act of life; keeping up with their careers, marriage, and two toddlers can be a handful before you take into account the need to exercise. They share this story with many of their clients, and they also share the strategies they've developed for making a little extra time to take care of yourself. They run an array of fitness boot camps that incorporate kickboxing, kettlebells, and plyometrics and are held outdoors at local parks. They even set aside specific dates for playdate fitness camps, where parents work out as their kids frolic on a nearby playground.

Sometimes extra stuff needs a new home, but it's usually not feasible to build a second, smaller home for the stuff to live in. Fortunately, Long Beach Security Storage acts as an apartment complex for wayward items, offering spaces in a variety of sizes. Security cameras and an electronic gate keep valuables inviolable. The facility even provides a complimentary truck and driver for local first-time movers, precluding the need to roll a grand piano Frogger-style through heavy traffic.
