The verdant fairways of Stevinson Ranch meander through the San Joaquin Valley, where rolling farmsteads dotted with natural wetlands serve both as hazards and scenic backdrops. Inspired by Scottish links-style courses, the club's Savannah Course boasts open fairways that invite players to launch booming tee shots without fear of striking trees or the feral caddies who inhabit them. Though wide fairways may prove welcoming, golfers are tested throughout the course by sharp doglegs and smooth, quick greens closely guarded by sand traps, water hazards, and thick swaying grasses. Rounds conclude on the challenging 18th hole, which requires a tee shot played diagonally across a long lake that rewards players who hug the shore while punishing those who come up short with a one-stroke penalty and a humbling supplication to the inhabitants of the pond.

Visitors traveling through Challenger Learning Center's exhibits may feel they've fallen down Alice's rabbit hole. One moment, they're as tiny as a nanobot as they gaze at nanotechnology components developed for medicine, electronics, and space elevators. The next, they're giants who could bat the whole planet around with one well-aimed jump—that is, if the planet is the NASA projection globe across whose surface features of the sun, moon, and Earth flow in vivid color.

Other exhibits take visitors far out, with images snapped by the Hubble Space Telescope or deep inside, with the Body Plaza's skeletons, x-rays, and organ models. A wide slate of interactive programming engages youngsters' problem-solving and teamwork skills with activities such as simulated space missions, where they keep the astronauts entertained over the radios at mission control or assemble probes in the spacecraft while hurtling toward Mars.

The locations that comprise Paintball Tickets challenge hue-happy gamers to a range of combative revelry fought with air-powered paintbrushes. During games, referees maintain a fun and lighthearted wartime experience while competitors engage in capture-the-flag style strategy. As players navigate the terrain on a quest to invade the other team's territory and avoid epidemics of trenchfoot, they covertly scope opponents and peg them with bright-colored pellets to dull their chance at victory.

The community-minded Kiwanis club cut the ribbon on Kiddieland more than half a century ago, and with updates to the rides, the park continues to draw crowds for spirited family fun. A day pass to the amusement park lets kids jump into lines for unlimited enjoyment of the six rides, including the Go-Gator rollycoaster, a swirling track that speeds carts down hills, around curves, and through imaginary gazelle herds. Wee ones channel their inner Jeff Gordons on the car ride and their inner astronauts on the rocket-ship ride. A park classic, the train chugs along, taking passengers on a nostalgic trek through the lush Applegate Park grounds. Meanwhile, helicopter rides show off the thrills of flight, lifting and twisting with passengers, and the merry-go-round exudes carnival atmosphere with festive music and brightly painted horses who have luxurious manes of cotton candy. Though not included with today's Groupon, the snack bar offers younglings a break from dizzying heights and track-top fun.

When parents throw a party at Inflatable Fun, all they need to bring is the kids and a cake. A private party host serves up pizza and drinks, cuts up the cake, and even helps load presents into the family car. Meanwhile, all the parents have to do is kick back and look on as their kids bounce around the center's inflatable structures.

Inside the classic bounce house, kids learn what it would be like to live on a cloud or atop a giant's belly. In the 900-square-foot obstacle course, they ricochet through air-filled corridors as they search for the exit. Open play times never get too crowded, as the staff admits just up to 20 kids for each hour-long slot.
