AdventurePlex has developed an easy recipe for lifelong healthy habits: an early start, plenty of space, and plenty of fun things to do. They've also discovered that this recipe works just as well on parents as on children.
Outside AdventurePlex's 16,000-square-foot facility, a 35-foot-high rock-climbing wall stretches across 1,630 square feet of climbing area so that families of grapplers can train to scale mountain summits or tickle the Statue of Liberty's chin. A ropes course similarly fosters teambuilding and confidence 20 feet above the ground. Indoors, a five-level AdventureRoom play structure preps wee ones for a future of healthy living and boardroom obstacle courses with its network of mazes, tunnels, slides, and ball pits. In 2013, the play structure won a Best of the Beach award from Easy Reader for Best Indoor Play Facility.
The AdventurePlex crew curates a variety of activities, including birthday parties, fitness classes, and summer adventure camps that keep muscles and minds engaged in a fun, safe environment. Parents, meanwhile, can surf the Web on AdventurePlex's WiFi?but Zumba classes for ages 16 and older let them find some "me time" without taking clones out for a romantic night on the town.
FrameStore's craftsmen have created more than 250,000 custom frames in the store’s 35-year tenure, designing pieces that now adorn the walls of prestigious institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Ritz-Carlton, and the Walt Disney Company. Professional designers guide FrameStore’s clients through the 2,200 moulding options that can accent paintings and treasured items while adding style and elegance to rooms. The store’s craftsmen then fashion pieces to patron specifications, outfitting frames with classic or museum-quality glass that blocks UV rays from bleaching out images or censoring pictures of the moon. Every piece goes through a 16-point inspection before it is given to patrons, and the team averages a seven-day turnaround on all of its projects.
Inside Out Eco Wash's licensed and experienced car-care specialists brandish advanced techniques and environmentally friendly products to reveal each vehicle's radiant potential. Detailing gurus begin each detail package with an exterior steam jet wash, which uses pressure to conserve water and eschew harsh chemicals while blasting away insect debris and your car's dead fiberglass skin cells. Then, the interior windows, dashboard, and console are wiped down, eliminating everything from fingerprints to evidence of steering with spaghetti-clad hands. In addition to the basic detail package, Inside Out’s specialists can also treat autos to services such as air-vent cleanings, a jet steam, a hand wax, and leather treatments.
Allan Jeffries Framing's experienced staff handcrafts custom framing treatments for treasured collectibles, letting you choose from more than 1,000 custom frame samples. The knowledgeable staffers guide patrons in selecting the right supplies for each piece, creatively framing works of art, diplomas, photographs, or million-dollar bills. To protect your treasures, the staff can outfit them with archival museum-quality mats and UV-protected nonglare glass or plexiglass.
The experienced, award-winning animal attendants of Melissa's Mutt Hutt travel to pets' domiciles to nurture animals with custom care. During an initial consultation, an animal nanny will meet your pets, learn their daily routines, pick up house keys, and discuss discretionary services, such as providing treats and toys. Pet sitting includes morning and evening neighborhood walks, feeding, playtime, and brushing. While keeping an eye on your pets, pet au pairs will also water plants, pick up mail, toss trash, and rotate lights. Then, after visits, homeowners can peruse detailed notes chronicling their pets' activities, temperaments, and tic-tac-toe victories.
Under the Sea fosters children’s learning and growth in an underwater-themed yet water-free indoor play stronghold. Throughout the socks-only facility, kids of all ages bounce, climb, slide, and negotiate raises from their child bosses under the watchful eyes of the painted mermaids and sea life that fill floor-to-ceiling murals. The Moon Bouncer combines the mystique of the subaquatic realm with the gravity-snubbing freedom of outer space, letting kids jump and stretch for starry heights, and the Turbo Slide facilitates rapid reacquaintance with terrestrial surfaces. Filling much of the vast playspace, brightly hued climbing structures and a sea castle invite children to refine their clambering and crawling skills, useful for future careers as brachiating gibbon impersonators.
