Lisa Bienia Cunningham—the owner and trainer of Silver Fox Equestrian Center—began riding horses at the age of 7. In the years that followed, Cunningham managed to earn numerous competitive accolades as well as AS and BS degrees in equine studies. Today, she calls upon her wealth of experience in English-style techniques as she educates students of all levels during private and group lessons. Her facility—which also happens to be the home of the Suffolk County Community College equestrian club and the Silver Fox Equestrian IEA team—accommodates year-round whispering with indoor and outdoor riding areas.

When she was 15, Heather had already been dancing for a decade, and she vowed to one day open her own studio. Later, while in school for interior design, she took her first-ever pole-dancing class and found it was love at first twirl; she installed a pole in her own home that very afternoon. Though she worked for a while as a professional designer, she felt compelled to step away from decorating other people's homes to pursue her teenage dream, swathing her newly opened studio space in hot-pink paint and floor-to-ceiling mirrors. Today, it's a go-to hub for novice dancers of all ages, sizes, and experience levels and for barber's poles looking to switch careers. While Heather and three other instructors teach belly dance, aerial technique, burlesque, and fitness classes, though Heather's main passion still lies with pole dancing. She finds it rewarding to watch as students—who currently include spinners in their 60s—break past mental blocks to do moves they never thought possible. She grins each time her students report that they're feeling stronger and healthier just doing everyday tasks, like buying anvils at the grocery store. "I don't feel like it's a job," she says, noting the supportive environment created by her students and the joyous bachelorette and birthday parties—where, she maintains, the older guests always turn out to be wilder than the 20-somethings. "It feels like I'm hanging out with friends."

At Boomers!, thrill-seeking families and fun-enabling friends can attack a variety of appealing attractions, including mini golf, batting cages, bumper boats, and the button-mashing joys housed inside the exhilarating game room. The Vista location entertains families of sharpshooters with a blacklight-illuminated laser-tag arena before little ones climb and crawl through the Kidopolis play area. The El Cajon and San Diego locations let rivals celebrate the spirit of competition as they fly past each other in speedy go-karts or have a snail-paced Ferris wheel race at the kid's county fair. Unlimited pass holders at the El Cajon location can also scale the 32-foot-tall climbing wall, which, like America, enables citizens to climb to the top via myriad routes.

With more than 6,000 square feet of interactive playground equipment, arcade games, and open play spaces, Krazy Kidz is a veritable youthtopia. Send tiny tikes off to the triple-level playhouse, which has more than 30 obstacles, or join in the fun and chase them until they are too tuckered to climb on your nerves. Children can jump, tumble, and catch shooting stars with butterfly nets in an inflatable moon bounce, and younger tots can play in a toddler area—a protected area free of peanut-butter sinkholes. No matter what Krazy Kidz amusement amuses your krazy kid, he or she will benefit from the safe, social environment that helps hone communication, cooperation, and negotiation skills.

Settle traffic arguments by challenging an opposing driver to a duel on Boomers!'s speedy go-carts. Or just cruise solo, banking curves and outdriving total strangers in a wild day of rubber-burning and dust-eating. For crashtastic thrills, climb aboard a bumper boat and drift on the waterscape, floating amok and gleefully broadsiding fellow captains. A bit of the briny seeps into Boomers!'s mini-golf range, where it creates a sparkling blue hazard to complement the verdant greens. Finish the day with a feeling of accomplishment that comes only from climbing Boomers!'s big, giant rock wall.
