Kelly Sorensen has always loved surfing. So much so, that when he couldn't get out to the beach as a kid, he took up skateboarding to keep his balance and skills sharp. You can sense his enthusiasm from floor to ceiling at On the Beach Surf Shop, which recreates a tropical paradise. Classic surfboards line the ceiling, bamboo and tiki-hut decorations house surf accessories and clothes, and real beach sand is mixed into the floor. Knowing that a part of the ocean is always underfoot, you can hunt down the perfect pair of shades and a board suited to your style. Or pick up a sweatshirt and flip-flops to keep you comfortable as you relax on the beach. The shop also rents surfboards, snowboards, bodyboards, and wetsuits for those who want a taste of the sport without needing to bribe dolphins to carry you through the waves.

Here, instructors helm advanced and intermediate pole-dancing fitness classes designed to tone muscles, burn fat, and boost confidence. The shop also rents out this studio space for private parties, where up to 50 guests can don heels and their most sensual porkpie hats for evenings of pole-dancing instruction and open practice.

Since 1961, Bamboo Reef has been unlocking the depths of the ocean by training scuba adventurers, outfitting them with gear and repairing equipment on the fritz. Skilled instructors guide swimmers during diving classes that range from paddling in an 82-degree pool to advanced night navigation in the Pacific's dunk tank. Refresher and specialty courses continue students’ aquatic education after they’ve mastered the basics of gliding through the deep blue. Bamboo Reef also coordinates dives off the shores of Monterey, Carmel, and international coasts that count toward specialty, advanced, and master diver ratings as well as black belts in underwater kickboxing.

The water wizards also rent and sell gear from brands such as Aqua Lung and Mares. Professional technicians—who maintain more than $10,000 in parts inventory—stand at the ready to repair all major brands of scuba equipment.

There are times when people go out to dinner with the hopes of trying something new, or unexpected. That can be fun, but there's also something to be said for the comforting and familiar. Archie's American Diner gets this. The diner packs its menu with all the staples one would expect, unless of course this is your first visit to a diner, or the planet Earth. Hamburgers and patty melts, chili and clam chowder, BLTs and grilled cheeses?this is comfort food at its most classic. To switch things up, daily fish specials are offered along with fish 'n' chips, calamari sandwiches, and fish-taco wraps.
