      Onsite gun storage. Membership at Governors Gun Club certainly has its benefits, but when it comes to the Full Metal Jacket club level, the perks go well beyond the range. It also grants access to the exclusive Freedom Lounge, complete with a humidor for cigars. Here, friendly competitions unfold at a billiards table, poker table, and chessboard. A wait staff supplies food and beverage service during select hours, and nice weather invites members out to the patio with a gas fire pit.

A rustic gateway to equine knowledge, SoPhar Ranch welcomes riders to its shady spot on Sweetwater Creek with services that range from lessons to boarding. Guests saddle up and explore 20 acres of onsite trails, or make their way through 80 acres of adjacent paths. A dedicated team of trainers conducts lessons in both Western and English riding styles on the ranch’s extensive facilities. Fledgling jockeys learn in a large outdoor arena, five large paddocks, or a lighted, covered arena that allows for nighttime riding while ensuring horses don't become jealous of the Pegasus constellation. Riders can also immerse themselves in equine instruction during camps for beginners as well as those focused on dressage, Western riding, and jumping on the ranch's full course.

Sparkles Family Fun Centers' Hiram and Kennesaw locations both follow a simple recipe: take as many kid-pleasing activities as humanly possible and blend them all together. Black-light, 2 story, 3D laser tag, a spacious skate-floor dotted with brightly colored lights and an arcade stocked with the latest games attract kids and kids-at-heart alike. Meanwhile, free WiFi engages parents and tech-savvy little ones while other revelers bound through a multi-level playground with swings, slides and obstacle course. The nearby toddler play-zone–staffed with playground attendants who play along and chat with kids–also lets pint-sized patrons work off some energy. At the Couey cafe, guests sate appetites worked up by having so much fun.
