All About Scuba's experienced, attentive instructors transform landlubbers ages 10 and older into underwater bubble-breathers with a range of classes. After donning loaner masks, snorkels, boots, and flippers, aquanauts strap into a tank-laden vest and spend 30 to 45 minutes gliding through a placid pool relatively free of feral manatees. After your instructor introduces you to the rules of safe subaqueous exploration and shows you how to operate the critical pieces of equipment—including buoyancy converters, regulators, and electric-eel outlet converters—students buddy up with each other to examine the pool's depths and reminisce about college over beers at the pool's underwater bar.

Renowned Cuban trumpeter Arturo Sandoval, who has received four Grammy awards and six Billboard awards, lacquers his audience's eardrums with genre-hopping performances that range from classical to bebob. After mastering the classical style during the beginning stages of his career, Sandoval repurposed his horn for jazz, using the valves to create improvisational glissandos and adding a Mustang-V8 engine to the bell. Revel in the expansive soundscape as he exemplifies these jazz chops and peforms an eclectic range of other tunes, including Afro-Cuban creations inspired by his homeland and some of Mozart's concertos. Unsatisfied with relying upon just a single instrument, the artist will also tickle the piano keys and flugel-horn valves, which yield much nicer sounds than tickling a bobcat.
Golf legend Arnold Palmer, known in the cleated world as the King and winner of the PGA Tour's Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, designed the undulating ryegrass fairways at Hiddenbrooke Golf Club. Ranked as one of Golf Digest’s Readers’ Choice Top 50 Public Courses in 2009, the course unfolds scenic views of rolling hills as players give their balls detailed directions, hand them compasses and trail mix, and send them hiking toward the pin. The 12th hole’s pin challenges orbs with one of the toughest locations on the course, and eight sand bunkers guard three sides of the 18th hole’s green. After working up a sweat, swingers can remove their gloves and Kevlar vests and celebrate or commiserate their score at The Grille, where diners gaze out over the greens while munching sandwiches and quaffing beer.
