Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process eschew cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays and photos ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Surfside Fitness hosts health-seekers in their gyms and on beaches, touting mats, kettlebells, ellipticals, and other high-quality equipment. Make over muscles with one-day gym sessions, during which a cornucopia of treadmills, ellipticals, ergs, and recumbent bikes elevate heart rates, while free weights, cables, and a human-sized hamster wheel build muscle tissue. Classes welcome exercise enthusiasts of all ability levels, with offerings such as yoga, TRX, Zumba, and circuit classes. Alternatively, boot camp sessions on the beach better bikini bodies with sets of challenging strength-training exercises, motivational instructors, and dumbbells made of sand.
East Coast Parasail leads wind-riders on thrilling aerial tours of historic Cape May and the Jersey Shore. In order to defy gravity without insulting it outright, sightseer duos ride the breeze in a two-man skyhook over the Cape May harbor while securely tethered to a U.S. Coast Guard–certified winch boat. Launching from the deck of the vessel allows parasailers to stay dry in-flight, unless they signal the USCG-certified captain for a reverse-Achillean dip. Once airborne, fliers surf the air waves suspended at heights of up to 500 feet. Many parasailing trips coincide with local dolphin-feeding patterns, giving hobby marine biologists the chance to survey sea-mammal cafeterias from above.
The friendly staff of the family-owned and family-operated Pier 88 Marina aims to create an all-inclusive setting for local boaters and visiting tourists alike. Docking services accommodate boats of up to 35 feet, and a fillet table and a bait-and-tackle shop accommodate anglers who seek the area's flounder, striped bass, and yellowfin tuna. The business also rents out single and tandem kayaks for self-guided jaunts into Townsend Sound or organized tours led by nature experts.
