North Clackamas Aquatic Park's 400,000 gallons of H2O stream down two twisty tube slides and splash swimmers in three swimming pools housed within this waterlogged indoor playground. During Big Surf! recreational hours, divers plunge into 13-foot-deep water as swimmers on rental tubes crest the wave pool's 4-foot surf, whereas competitive swimmers hone skills in the 25-yard, six-lane lap pool. A drop slide sends adventurous aquanauts plunging, as climbers head the other direction on a 29-foot rock wall with three routes for scalers of all skill levels. As adults unwind in the hot tub, pint-size splashers flit about interactive fountains, coast down the Sammie the Seal slide into a kiddie pool, or organize their fellow tots into a filibuster until chaperones acquiesce to snack demands at the Surf's Up Cafe. Swimming lessons, complimentary life jackets, and inflatable submarines are also available to help guests swim safely.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

Milwaukie Bowl welcomes pin-thirsty bowlers with 16 smooth, shiny lanes that feature automatic scoring systems instead of the usual abacuses. The open-bowling package fits up to six sphere slingers with rental shoes and two hours of striking-and-sparing action, and bumper-equipped lanes are available to encourage players gripped by gutterfear. While waiting for the underground employees to return their balls after each roll, bowlers can replenish their pin-sniping skills at the full-service beer bar. Dave Husted’s Inside Line ProShop provides visitors with all the gear necessary for pitching a perfect game.

Former gymnast and avid downhill skier Julie Ralston stumbled across CrossFit while searching for an exercise routine that would motivate her mind and push her body to the pinnacle of fitness. After achieving her CrossFit certification, attending countless seminars, and co-founding CrossFit StumpTown in Portland, Ralston developed a training technique suitable for customers of any body type, age, or level of ability. Her program offers increasingly challenging reps of lunges, sprints, throws, and lifts, backed up by the positive vibes and friendly support of a community of like-minded athletes. Visitors to the 4,700-square-foot gym won't find treadmills or weight machines, but kettlebells for swinging, pull-up bars for intense upper-body conditioning, and enough open space to halter-break a horse and train it to love CrossFit.

Portland Aquarium, a December 2012 addition to Milwaukie, introduces visitors to thousands of waterborne species. Guests can slide their hands along the smooth flesh of a stingray or the knobby arms of a starfish or engage in staring contests with a blacktip reef shark. Other planned exhibits include a jellyfish exhibit, a cold-water tank filled with fish native to Oregon's coast, and a rainforest-themed jungle gym for children. The tropical touch-tank woos visits with its displays of vibrant-color aquatic life while amphibious wonders, including poison dart frogs, thrill visitors. Those seeking bigger thrills may hoist various pythons species–including a15-foot reticulated or 9-foot albino burmese snake–upon their shoulders or get their picture taken with macaw parrot. Landing-loving iguanas and panter chameleons also lurch around in the mix.

Though beautiful views and impeccable maintenance are typically found at long, difficult courses, the staff at Lake Oswego Golf Course believes that beginning and intermediate players should also be able to enjoy a top-notch course while learning the game. At 2,517 yards in total, the 18-hole, par-3 layout removes the physical stress of extreme length. Players can learn to hone in their game while golfing against the backdrop of Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams. Individual holes range between 74 and 179 yards, creating a hole-in-one opportunity on every tee box—provided a golfer can avoid Lost Dog Creek, outstretched tree boughs, and lost center fielders searching for fly balls.

Lake Oswego Golf Course's rates fluctuate throughout the week.
