Resting in shallow waters, the faithful wooden re-creation of Columbus’s flagship Santa Maria puts into perspective the lives of sailors as they crossed the Atlantic in cramped quarters, wholly beholden to wind and weather. On board, guides and crewmembers reenact daily life as it must have been for the legendary explorer and his crew, conveniently providing English subtitles for each boisterous Spanish sea shanty. Apart from regular daily tours, themed events such as Talk Like a Pirate Weekend or the Gospel Sail-A-Bration showcase the talents of pirate impersonators and area gospel performers, respectively.

From 1992–1994, the Cleveland Thunderbolts gave the city its first taste of Arena Football League action. And while the taste was but a tease at the time—the team disbanded at the end of the 1994 season—AFL fans eventually would see a return to revelry in 2008 with the arrival of the Gladiators, a team that bounced around the country like a rock band on pogo sticks before diggin’ in their cleats at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena. In their first official season, the Gladiators introduced themselves in grand fashion by advancing to the franchise's first-ever conference championship game—a tough loss, to the eventual league champion Philadelphia Soul, that’s since stood as the squad’s humbling reminder of the unending effort required to achieve league dominance.

Founded by a group of friends who created the acclaimed Newport Gangster Tour as a fundraiser in 2008, American Legacy Tours blossomed into a full-fledged tour company two years later. Participants choose from seven distinct tours that traverse cities as guides share fascinating and sometimes seedy history. The Queen City Underground Tour ventures beneath the city’s streets into a hidden burial vault and long-forgotten tunnels, and the Newport Gangster Tour delves into a scandalous past by visiting the sites of former brothels and speakeasies. Elsewhere, on the Haunted Covington Tour, guests feed their thirst for fright and their hunger for candy handouts from amiable apparitions.

Personal trainer Vince Ceniceros was at a crossroads in his life: “I was rehabbing houses at the time and it was either keep rehabbing houses or try to open a business,” he told the Toledo Blade. Staying true to his risk-taking nature, he took a chance and it paid off with the debut of Extreme Cycling by Vince. His once 2,800-square-foot space has now blossomed into a 8,200-square-feet gym with the addition of the Extreme Cardio Center, which hosts spin, TurboKick, and TRX classes.

Ceniceros’s success lies in his effective fitness method, a mix of cardio, strength, and muscle work that not only boosts patrons’ stamina, but also helps them shed weight. His workouts pull techniques from muay thai, boxing, isometrics, and other approaches to allow students to work within their individual fitness levels. Some of his signature moves include the Sugar Cookie pushup jump—a combo that’s anything but sweet—and the Mountain Climber, which challenges exercisers to lean on their fists in a plank position and ascend an imaginary peak while fending off hungry mountain goats.

Act Out Talent Studio offers classes for all levels of entertainers to begin or continue their path towards a successful acting, modeling, or performing career. The studio employs a stable of coaches, each with experience working within their industry, that imparts students with an inside understanding of show business. Acting classes instill confidence and foster talent using emoting exercises covering such basics as observation, improvisation, and translating Shakespeare from the original Swedish. Aspiring models learn everything from expressing an image to nutrition in order to help build a marketable portfolio, and vocal classes allow singers and songwriters to step into an actual recording booth to practice chugging honey before crooning into the mic.
