In Boylston, 132 acres rest untouched by modern society, where warm breezes send flower petals dancing and sidewalks give way to winding trails. Tower Hill Botanic Garden envelops visitors in fields of green grass, tall trees, and colorful flowers across both outdoor areas and indoor garden spaces. Staff members educate guests on the gardens? various flora and fauna in classes and programs calibrated for students of every age. Special events, such as the Annual Lily Show, shine the spotlight on even more species of flowers, much like the wildflower-identification portion of standard driving tests.

Subliminal Skatepark is a 16,000-square-foot indoor facility where bikers and skaters can perform grinds and kick-flips on the street course, skateboarding bowl, and mini ramp during sessions. A pro shop attires and protects the heads of reckless speed-seekers with helmet rentals (a $5 per day value) and fuel stations stocked with thirst-quenching potions and miniature meals (not included in this Groupon) rush down the throats like rain rushes down the perfectly smooth noses of Mount Rushmore.

Seasoned ace Jim Fenner steadies unstable swings and smoothens out wobbly putts with lessons tailored to individuals, groups, or players hoping to address specific ailments within their golf game. A veritable Johnny Appleseed of golf, the passionate pedagogue roams about courses and teaching centers throughout the greater Worcester area, spreading golf wisdom and burying dimpled orbs that soon blossom into VHS copies of The Legend of Bagger Vance. Clients can catch Jim refining pupils' motions or remedying trust issues between clubs and their owner at the indoor golf simulator of XGolf of New England, where he hibernates during the off-season chill.

Though students at Prototype Mixed Martial Arts & CrossFit Prototype have plenty of room to spread out—there’s 7,000 square feet of functional floor space—instructors’ attention never strays from their form. This principle carries into both CrossFit and MMA classes, two high-energy, intense workout styles. MMA workouts include an equally varied and intense set of exercises, but they’re drawn from kinetic combat styles such as muay thai and boxing, as well as technical forms such as Brazilian jujitsu and office-chair jousting.

Known for his appearances on Comedy Central and NBC's Last Comic Standing, Jim McCue draws the audience into a rib-tickling, year-ending performance at convivial Italian restaurant Bucca di Beppo. With an impish grin, McCue picks out and good-naturedly picks on guests in a freewheeling set. The chief joke-slinger and supporting comics wrap up the fun before midnight, granting partiers the option to visit a different bar or return home before their cars revert to pumpkins.
