As riders learn the names of ancient trees and watch a stream meander through the mountains, wind rushes past their ears. That’s because they are following two guides along courses set by an overhead belay zipline—only stopping to traverse a swinging suspension bridge or rappel down toward the forest floor. ArborTrek Canopy Adventures cofounder Michael Smith devises these tours, drawing from more than 18 years as a challenge-ropes-course builder, manager, and trainer. He leads a trained staff of zipline guides versed in wilderness rescue and first aid as well as ecology, geology, and the local histories of areas such as Vermont’s Green Mountains. On each tour, two guides lead groups across interconnected ziplines, aerial bridges, rappelling walls, and other challenge elements. All the while, they follow a path that reveals facts about local history and ecology, such as which trees are native and what eggs forest rangers hatched from. ArborTrek’s builders design each course to work with the environment, and they minimize their environmental impact by consulting with local foresters, wildlife experts, and engineers.

One of the first FlowRiders available in the area, Maeva Surf’s indoor system grants surfing aficionados a place to ride waves safely no matter the season or weather. The double FlowRider’s powerful pumps hurl water, like a schoolchild with a squirt gun, at 40 km/h along a trampoline-like surface made of tightly stretched canvas, creating two waves that accommodate a maximum of six surfers. During the introductory FlowBoard class, students absorb 30 minutes of instruction covering safety techniques and wave patterns, followed by 30 minutes on the waves themselves. Each ride on a flowboard lasts anywhere between 1 and 45 seconds depending on the level of expertise of the riders and whether they believe time is a construct of the mind. Meanwhile, students with reservations can choose to experience bodyboard instead. After class, students can browse the attached shop for beachwear and surfing paraphernalia such as Oxbow sandals ($17), a Rip Curl bathing suit ($50), and an O’Neill belt ($23).

As the sun sets and the city lights begin to twinkle, the catamaran of Croisière Le Montréalais beckons guests with its glowing neon blue or pink deck. With revelers aboard, the bright lights dance across the inky waters as Le Montréalais heads out into the night. And while the ship may creep silently through the waters, the decks are anything but quiet as up to 300 guests mingle on two indoor and three outdoor decks. The design of the boat is sleek and modern, with ice-blue lighting, pure white furniture, neon mood lighting, and synthetic grass on the outdoor deck and the ceiling of the up-side-down putting room. A dance floor and full sound system invite guests to dance the night away, and menus provide sustenance with bites of salmon tartar, pork ravioli, and lamb sliders.
