From a bird's-eye view, the emerald expanse of All American Sports Center is unmistakably devoted to the sports of golf and baseball. No less than 20 heated tees and 40 seasonal grass tees line the driving range, allowing players to keep shooting for the horizon even after the sun sets and the towering lampposts light up the field. For short games, the center also features a 10,000-square-foot putting green as well as a chipping green complete with hazards such as sand bunkers and kiddie pools full of jury summons. The 18-hole miniature golf course encourages visitors to unwind as they putt past decorative waterfalls and rivers. At the dugout, guests can switch gears to baseball or softball, taking up bats to turn away the wrath of variable-speed pitching machines.
Emerald corridors spiral across a landscape of vibrant flowers, trees, and rocky outcrops to comprise Mulligans Family Fun Center’s 18-hole miniature golf course. A gushing waterfall broadcasts tranquil vibes throughout the circuit, as pale-red bricks keep balls from straying off-path or absconding to audition for position in a juggling act. Mulligans' pavilion adds to the vacation atmosphere, allowing guests to arrange romantic post-golf picnics with snacks and refreshments available at the clubhouse. The center also includes a basketball court, where guests can practice free throws or javelin-tossing putters at the backboard.
Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that compose America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $6.98 value) in its hallowed halls while wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (a $3.25 value).
An old-fashioned pair of comedy and tragedy masks greet drivers pulling up to the marquee of Aut-O-Rama Drive-In. The vintage aesthetic is fitting for an establishment that’s been in business since 1965 and is now in its third generation of being operated by the Sherman family. Although the cinematic lot prides itself on being the first in the area to offer AM-radio sound, today, Dolby FM stereo bathes cars in field-filling acoustics as audiences take in a library of contemporary flicks. From the start of April to the end of September, first-run and well-worn films alike await vehicular cinephiles, who can munch on burgers, subs, and pizza, along with desserts such as ice cream and funnel cake.
Avondale Golf Club’s par 71 course immerses golfers in a lush landscape of verdant fairways, beguiling water hazards, and arboreal majesty. Unlike the pack animals relied upon by early golfers, golf carts tote clubs and other tackle without ever stopping to graze or braying during a backswing, allowing par pursuers to traverse the course’s 18 holes in expeditious comfort. Weekend and weekday tee times provide ample opportunity to trek across the classic course, home to a rich menagerie of birdies, bogeys, and mulligans since 1974.
Got Gut boot-camp participants generally flock to the fitness grounds two to five days a week, but with today's Groupon secured under your terrycloth headband, you can attend as many of the 60-minute sweat fests as you please. During your four-week program, you'll receive unlimited physical and nutritional guidance from Debi's highly trained instructors and get to take your body to its buffing limits during increasingly challenging cardio and strength-training workouts. The group sessions promote a team mentality, so not only will you feed off the supportive vibes of your peers, but you will also likely walk away from the experience with a new secret bicepshake.
