The Tintypery's shutterbugs have been capturing sepia-tone memories inside their old-time photography studio for the past 30 years. Before each photo shoot, customers don authentic costumes, which range from the 1860s through to the 1930s—guises include cowboy hats, pinstripe suits, Victorian gowns, and glum facial expressions. Once families and groups gather around whiskey barrels, rifles, and oil-lamp set pieces, they can choose to pose with historically accurate props: southern belles may swish delicate lace fans and Civil War soldiers may pose with their trusty sabers. Kids too can join in the fun by dressing up as masked bandits or other period characters. Not to leave anyone out, Tintypery also welcomes pets as long as they respect the customs of the past by covering up with a bandana or modest pantaloons.
The owners of Peak Nutrition founded their business with a simple goal of helping others. To that end, they provide customers with the supplements they need to kick-start a new diet, fuel a workout, or muster the strength to rip off their tank tops Hulk-style. On-staff nutritionists and dieticians can further help clients in their healthy pursuits with custom five-step nutrition plans.

The Aquaport, which is open from May 29 through September 7, contains all the classic elements of a day of summery family fun. Keep wee ones safe and happy in an 8,000-square-foot family-fun pool full of bubblers, sprinklers, and fountains; relax on a 750-foot-long lazy river for hazy flotation that would put Samuel Clemens to shame; and delight fun-deprived ossicles on six colorful slides of varying length and intensity. Thrill-seeking teenagers and tall children enjoy the extreme bowl, a striped tube that sends riders straight down an enclosed slide and into a funnel-shaped bowl that swirls the intrepid traveler around like a lima bean in a kitchen-sink strainer before depositing him or her into a pool below. More-traditional fun-seekers relish rapids slides on inner tubes and the 50-foot-long racer slides.
