A pencil peeks out of hole in the lid of a shiny red apple, bits of yellow and black fleck a butterfly's wings, and blue and green glass curves to catch the light from the candle it holds. These are just a few of the projects invented at Busy Bees Pottery and Arts Studio, where visitors can paint bisqueware, sculpt clay, or fuse glass to make homes or city-bus windows more beautiful.

Long tables sprawl across the studio's checkered floor, and plates bearing pastel treats and serene landscapes polka-dot the walls for inspiration. A paint bar arrays samples of tiles painted in each color so artists can preview their ceramic's finished looks.

Julie Berger's memories are saturated with images of dancers— teachers who inspired her, students she worked with, and professionals she revered. Entranced by the beautiful and transformative art form, Julie practiced dance throughout her life, attending intensive dance programs, performing in competitions, and teaching at local dance centers. Julie discovered salsa dancing while studying in England, and she instantly fell in love with its sultry movements and lively steps. Determined to share the newfound style with others, Julie founded her own salsa-dancing studio.

At Salsa in the Suburbs Dance Studio, Julie and her staff of passionate dancers lead classes in a variety of styles, including salsa, ballroom, and belly dance. The instructors work with students of all levels, helping them master form, technique, and rhythms. The teachers also offer children's classes in ballet, tap, and Zumba, ideal for youngsters trying to be more active or hoping to include a lively dance section in their next chemistry presentation.

It can be difficult to tear your gaze from Tavola Restaurant & Bar's dining-room windows, which overlook the lush rolling hills, majestic pines, and rustic gazebo of the surrounding country club. But soon, an enticing aroma compels your nose to turn toward the kitchen. Inside, chefs bustle about, folding fresh herbs, aromatic sauces, and crisp vegetables into a variety of Italian specialties—including the buttery shrimp scampi lauded by reporters from CBS Philly. A nearby brick oven melts mozzarella cheese onto gourmet pizzas.

The elegant dining room hosts diners swirling strings of pasta beside chandelier-illuminated oil paintings, and the cushy white sofas of the bar area support guests sipping Italian and American wines. Those seeking the best views venture to the outdoor patio, where they can watch seasoned golfers play on Springfield Country Club’s course or make sand angels in the sand traps.

For four decades, Putt-Putt Golf and Games has hosted friendly competition with four putt-putt golf courses and an array of games. Colorful blossoms and rocky waterfalls add character to 18-hole putt-putt golf courses, and creative hole designs add challenge. Groups of partygoers can request a staff chaperone to guide them through the labyrinth and hand over a treasure map to the course’s bounty of nougat-filled golf balls.

In the Game Zone, visitors settle competitive challenges at an air-hockey table or face-off against digital emissaries in the Terminator Salvation arcade game. Outside, the Jump Shot is a trampoline basketball hoop that launches athletes toward slam-dunks in lower orbit.

Bogart's Bar & Grill comforts diners through a menu of hearty American sandwiches and entrees. Piled-high chicken nachos send morsels of tender poultry skiing down a cheese-slathered mountain of tortilla chips complete with jalapeño peppers and mini ski lifts ($8.99) . For the main dish, staff can hand-carve slow-roasted slabs of meat to stuff au-jus-sprinkled kaiser rolls, crafting Bogart’s signature roast-beef sandwiches ($7.29). Alternately, opt for a hot entree, such as the Yuengling fish 'n' chips, for which kitchen craftsmen slather a cod fillet in beer batter before a dip in the deep-fryer turns it crispy, readying it to take its place for a photo op beside a giggling group of waffle-fry fans ($11.99).
