Swinging around a chrome pole isn't as easy as grabbing hold and traipsing 360 degrees—there's an mélange of skills one must learn before successfully making a full revolution with seductive grace and panache. Dancers must be able to suspend themselves upside down, launch into dizzying spins, and stand-in for American flags during their paid time off after the 4th of July. The instructors at Spin Sity draw from this artistic and sultry form of choreography to help women empower themselves, tone up, and cultivate overall wellness. Within the pink studio—replete with mirrors, hardwood floors, and metallic poles—students take on Flirty Fitness and pole-dancing classes. Also offered is an unstructured open-gym practice where students can hone their newfound skills or learn new ones.

Spin Sity also puts on birthday parties and girls' nights out where women can join with friends to learn sultry dance skills, as well as lead open-gym practice. For students without a pair of their own sparkly stilettos or leopard-print platform heels, Spin Sity sells a lineup of fashionable and flirty shoes perfect for performing pole routines or putting away dishes on the top shelf.

A self-described "cattleman," Jack Roddy made the shrewd business decision to turn his 2,000-acre cattle ranch into Roddy Ranch, which opened its pristine greens in 2000. The outcome was a resounding success, as the club's 18-hole, 7,024-yard course garnered praise from its early guests, including a San Francisco Chronicle writer who lauded the "home-free surroundings" as "the finest golf course that's opened in the greater Bay Area in years." With mounded terrain, relatively scarce tree lines, a multitude of bunkers, and ball washers that speak Gaelic, the course brings the links-style characteristics of golf's Emerald Isle forebears into the rustic hills of northern California. As golfers traverse the grassy labyrinth, elevated greens and tee boxes give way to scenic views of the brown- and green-toned landscape as rising foothills graze the distant clouds.

The expansive club also encompasses a 400-yard, three-tiered driving range, as well as a pro shop featuring golf apparel and accessories from Titleist, FootJoy, Antigua, and other top industry brands. After trolling the fairways or burying disloyal 9 irons in the deepest bunker, players can retreat to The Corral, where a full repertoire of sandwiches, salads, soups, soft drinks, beer, and liquor foster post-round rejuvenation and revelry.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par-72 course
  • Length of 7,024 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 74.5 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 142 from the farthest tees
  • Five tee options

East County Performing Arts Center's university-trained educators mentor students ages 2 and up on the finer points of ballet, hip-hop, jazz, and other styles. Two- and 3-year-olds can combat the antidancing establishment during a 45-minute Boogie Babies class, combining elements of tap, ballet, tumbling, and play. Parents or visiting dignitaries can wave to young ones through either location's viewing window, putting anxieties at ease while muffling the sounds of spectator bullhorns. Older toe tappers can explore a variety of styles, including hip-hop, contemporary, or jazz, in which students will master choreography and traverse the floor through movement progressions. Groupon holders can experience the thrill of synchronized motion without trying to keep up with a flock of migrating birds during a Dance for Cheer class, which incorporates jazz, hip-hop, and poms.

Slipping down one of five thrilling slides, winding their way through boulder cove, or stopping to refuel at the Lazy River Café, families relish the chance to spend time together while taking respite from summer heat. As kids hone their strokes during swim lessons, parents can lounge poolside or obliterate calories during a water aerobics class. After workouts, the picnic area provides a shady spot to lay out a lunch brought from home, purchased at the snack bar, or willed into existence. On Friday night, the water park gets a dose of sound waves as DJs spin tunes. Throughout the season, kids take advantage of themed activities on Country Western Day, Princess Day, and Pirate Day. The pool can also be rented out for private parties and functions and makes an ideal spot for birthday parties.

The next time you're on the roof of a five-story building, look down at the ground, and you'll get a rough idea of just how high people climb at Touchstone Climbing. The gym's seven locations feature lead walls that rise as high as 50 feet off the ground, though height isn't the only dimension that makes the space feel immense. Each spot has at least 11,000 square feet of climbing terrain, not to mention as much as 3,000 square feet of bouldering.

To prevent newcomers from feeling intimidated by the magnitude of the environment, the gym holds introductory classes. During these sessions, participants learn the basic techniques they'll need if they want to conquer the gym's crack systems and boulder problems. The classes are also an opportunity for students to scope out the terrain features at each location, such as Diablo Rock Gym's steep prow, which juts out crookedly like a thumbs up from a dizzy ballerina. While they're at it, the visitors might notice something else: the social nature of the gym. As the San Francisco Chronicle recounts, the fact that lead climbs require two people means that climbers are constantly asking around for new partners and chatting back and forth as they ascend.

Each location also boasts a weight room, cardio machines, and a studio space for everything from yoga to spinning to core classes.
