The 10’x10’ course simulator screens at Randy’s Indoor Golf vividly replicate the bucolic, short-grass corridors of famous courses from the comfort of an indoor, 18-hole golf studio. The fairway facsimiles allow golfers to strike real golf balls off of custom, divot-action golf mats that emulate clubs’ response on real grass without offending Mother Earth's curvaceous topography. Each simulated course is vibrantly brought to life using 3-D graphics, whisking club-toting clientele to courses modeled after 22 famous links such as Torrey Pines and Bethpage Black. Throughout each round, players also benefit from swing-analysis feedback on each shot, allowing them to savor the precise yardage of an extra-long drive or enlist concrete data during motivational speeches delivered to underperforming 6-irons. Before each round, players can also adjust the virtual weather to match their stormy temperament, reflect their sunny disposition, or satisfy their fixation with golf ball-size hail. In addition to golf, Randy's offers other virtual sports, including bowling, baseball, and hang gliding.

Whether the name of the game is to have some family fun or to scream like a banshee, Cliff's Amusement Park has been the place to do it for more than 50 years. The first thing you'll notice as you drive up is the New Mexico Rattler, a 3,000-foot wooden roller coaster that twists and turns its way around the edges of the park and plunges—for a few terrifying seconds—into an underground tunnel. The Cliff Hanger makes an anticipation-building ascent before freefalling back to earth, and the SideWinder twirls passengers 80 feet into the air on a structure resembling Paul Bunyan's spare wagon wheel.

The jungle-themed WaterMania area lets youngsters climb like monkeys and race down slippery water slides. They also can enjoy slower-paced fun inside bumper cars, on the Tilt-A-Whirl, or during a leisurely trip around the park on an old-timey train.

Owner and instructor Julia Bowen spent more than a decade investigating anti-aging methods, natural healing, and movement of energy through the body before discovering the marriage of all three in yoga. Investigating yoga resulted in a new passion, which prompted her to open Yoga by Julia, enabling her to share yoga with others.

Julia's staff of 5 yoga instructors fill the week with a variety of levels of yoga class, from beginner to advanced, some sessions tailored to specific goals. The friendly teachers are knowledgeable, supportive, have undergone advanced training, and strive to make all classes fun and approachable. They supplement their schedule with the core-reforming regimens of Pilates and Yoga Sculpt, a vigorous class that combines cardio, yoga, and weight-lifting. All classes take place within their hardwood-floored studio, amid the sparkling light of sunshine and the bright glow of paper lanterns.

Latin tunes and hip-hop beats rumble through Salsa Baby's studio as footloose instructors lead students of all experience levels and ages through the twists and turns of fitness and social dances. Group salsa classes teach beginners the basics of leading and following, whereas sessions for intermediate movers dip into more complex and nuanced approaches, such as alternative timing or how to dance your way out of a bar fight. A quintet of instructors choreographs fun and challenging Zumba, salsa aerobic, and striptease workouts, and the onsite hip-hop troupe, Iron Bred Kidz, gets both funky and fresh while teaching the latest yard-stomping moves at schools and parties. Aside from group classes, Salsa Baby also hosts private lessons for myriad dance styles, such as the tango, waltz, and rumba.

Across 7,000 square feet of open space, kids tumble, slide, and climb through Hoot’s Ultimate Party Zone’s brightly colored attractions. Bouncy castles and a soft 20-foot-high slide stretch their wobbly peaks toward the center’s towering ceiling, and a 40-foot-long obstacle course challenges runners to cross canvas bridges and pretend to jump tricycles over 40 school buses. Open-play times allow kids to drop in for bursts of energy expenditure, and weekend party packages provide balloons, pizzas, and goodie bags for birthday celebrations. Additionally, all play structures are made from strong materials, allowing adults to accompany their kids into the bouncy arenas or retire to the lounge to recline in leather chairs, watch television, and connect to the free WiFi.

Teaching hips to swivel to new circumferences, trained dance instructors impart their masterful moves unto students in the respected tradition Arthur Murray has upheld since 1912. On the Albuquerque studio's more than 3,100-square-foot floor—a dance destination since 1952—students can tackle ballroom, social, or Latin dance, bringing a partner to their private lessons or flying solo and dancing with the instructor. Protégés may find their new moves applicable in a number of settings, such as when prepping for a wedding dance or when blending into an airport crowd that breaks out in a cha-cha. Regularly scheduled dance parties let students practice what they learned in lessons, slicing and dicing rugs with new fleet-footed friends.
