Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Fun Zone for kids, Laser Tag for teens

Boomers Family Fun Center offers entertainment to visitors of any age. It's a line that a lot of family-friendly entertainment places use, but Boomers' staff truly tailors activities to entertain different sensibilities. For kids, they provide more than 8,000 square feet of slides, tubes, tunnels, and climbable play sets, comprised of soft, inflated bits. They pair this Fun Zone with an arcade full of ticket-yielding games and prizes to be had if you earn enough tickets or impersonate an official prize inspector. Meanwhile, the 3,200 square foot, multi-level laser tag arena provides competitive play tailored to teens. Adults, of course, can enjoy either form of activity with their kids or friends, or make use of the mini golf course and riving range, weather permitting.

Like building a home, losing weight involves the interlocking of several pieces. The weight-loss architects at Physicians Weight Control build healthy physiques upon four pillars. Diet plans personalized to the client’s lifestyle control intake of nutrients and fat, fueling the clinic's aerobic-exercise plans. The last two pillars—appetite suppressants and vitamin supplements—combine to keep energy levels up and re-create the rush of swallowing a candy bar whole once the client starts eating smaller meals.

Couture Laser & Skin’s founder and director, Dr. Anshul Gambhir, received his medical training at the renowned Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. With his team of aestheticians, he has performed more than 100,000 nonsurgical, cutting-edge cosmetic procedures, ranging from chemical peels to permanent makeup. To diminish wrinkles, he uses dermal fillers or CO2 lasers that resurface skin as they tighten it, and micro-incision liposuction allows him to sculpt and contour bodies without a single surgical stitch or shrink ray. He also harnesses the radiofrequency energy of the Thermage device and uses it to rebuild and remodel collagen, and he scares away unwanted hair with FDA-approved lasers.

The family dental team at Matthews Dental Associates, enhancing smiles since 1975, eschews wire braces in favor of Invisalign trays to guide teeth toward healthier, more aesthetic positions. Wearers rotate through of series of clear plastic trays that nudge teeth toward their optimal position while remaining virtually undetectable, much like a snowman's milk moustache. After an initial consultation and examination ensures candidacy for treatment, panoramic x-rays and impressions work in tandem with 3-D computer technology to design and crafts trays. During treatment, which can last up to two years, wearers graduate to a new set about every two weeks and can remove the trays at any time in order to brush, eat, or gnaw crayons.
