Food lovers rejoice: rather than traverse the town in search of a variety of cuisine, they can save time and shoe leather by attending the Valley Center Gourmet Food Truck Festival. The second annual culinary extravaganza—sporting a Hawaiian theme this year—features mouth-watering platefuls from food trucks such as Crepes Bonaparte, Dang Brother Pizza, and Hoangie's Bahn Mi, dished out alongside pours from Hess Brewing and California Fruit Wine. While adults enjoy of-age libations, youngsters can partake of activities including pony rides and face painting. Live music and DJ performances underscore each sip, swirl, and perfectly tuned bite.
It can take a long time to build up the courage to skydive?and then, whoosh, the big moment passes in literal moments. Luckily, Skydive Perris lets you draw the experience out a bit. The company's Sensory Overload package, for instance, allows fledgling jumpers to try two indoor skydiving sessions in a 95-foot tunnel, followed by a very outdoor tandem jump from an airplane that soars to 12,500 feet. The instructor won't pull the cord until 5,000 feet, giving guests an entire minute to experience a free fall.
After alighting, visitors head down to the onsite restaurant, Bombshelter Bar & Grill, to watch a DVD of their flight on a big-screen TV. As their adrenaline cools on the windowsill, they can unwind on the bar's patio or with a dip in the adjacent pool before turning in for the night at one of the bunkhouses. If guests find themselves dreaming about the high-octane experience, they might consider returning for training in solo free falls or advanced group jumps, which teach participants how to form their bodies into patterns spelling "Look Ma, No Gravity!"
Some say that Paradise exists where the blue water stretches infinitely into the azure sky.

Paddleboard fitness and yoga classes take serenity to the next level by putting mats directly on watercraft, letting yogis stretch and perform poses while balancing over a body of water.
