The team of guides at Waters West Guide Service are fully licensed, insured, and CPR-certified fishing guides. They are also justifiably confident. Every time they take a jet sled or drift boat full of eager amateurs out onto the waters of Oregon and Washington, they guarantee that the group will catch a fish. Furthermore, they back up this bet by offering half price on the next excursion on the off chance that the fish don't bite. They are also able to make such predictions because their fisheries of choice?such as Buoy 10 near Astoria, Oregon, Drano Lake, and the Wynoochee River?are positively teeming with fish. Depending on their chosen excursion and the time of year, trawlers can expect to haul aboard prime specimens of salmon, sturgeon, steelhead, or trout during charters lasting from a half-day (up to 5 hours) to a full day (up to 9 hours).
Behind a backdrop of blue skies and the distant ranges of Mount Rainier, players sharpen their swings at Airport Golf & Batting Center. The mountain serves as the ultimate target for slinging long drives inside the heated, lit, and covered driving range. A nine-hole executive course with new blocks and greens stands ready to host players ready to move beyond banking chip shots over the neighbor's pool. Scratching the sports itch doesn't stop with just golf, as the center also houses a bank of indoor batting cages, each outfitted with pitching machines that sling baseballs up to 60 miles per hour.
Six distinct wineries make up the South Sound Wine Trail. At each stop, visitors sample flights of handcrafted wines and meet the winemakers that produce them, using grapes from some of Eastern Washington's best vineyards. The award-winning wineries of the South Sound Wine Trail include, Stottle Winery, Madsen Family Cellars, Northwest Mountain Winery, Medicine Creek Winery, Scatter Creek Winery, and Walter Dacon.
Pilates at Play takes its name seriously. Yes, that goes for both parts. When Trisha Hatfield Graves opened the studio in 1998, she was required to undergo a grueling three-year program and log more than 1,000 internship hours before she could claim the title of a fully certified Pilates instructor and open one of the first fully equipped studios in the Seattle area.
But just because Trisha and her instructors are so focused on the strengthening and healing techniques of traditional Pilates doesn't mean they don't also know how to have fun. Their expansive 1,800-square-foot studio resembles a playground more than a gym, complete with bright colors and swings hanging from the ceiling. Besides traditional Pilates mat and equipment classes, the group leads aerial Pilates and Swing-a-lates classes that use playground swings for core-strengthening exercises, and spinal decompression. Additionally, the instructors lead pole and chair dancing classes, which draw on the principals of lyrical dance to give women a fun and flirty workout.
Imagine a lifestyle in which you park a Ferrari at a private boat slip, slide onto a custom yacht, and ferry it across a waterway to a private island hosting a 20-room mansion modeled after an Italian villa. Though this may sound like a dream only attainable by the mega rich or an heir to a chocolate-fountain fortune, Imagine Lifestyles facilitates such lavish accommodations with a cavalry of luxury vehicles, vacation homes, and yacht charters. They specialize in auto rentals, entrusting cars from brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Porsche, and BMW to drivers for as short as a half day or as long as several weeks. To shield these pristine and rare rides from the elements, they also deal in luxury vacation home rentals, ranging from beach mansions in Miami to chic lofts and high-rise penthouses. The service also charters air and sea transportation, including jets of all sizes and yachts for all occasions.
Shankz Black Light Miniature Golf encompass 18 holes set aglow in neon and covered with exotic creatures. As they travel through the indoor facility, each glowing putter must navigate around a wrecked pirate ship, shoot between stubby dinosaur legs, and wrest their clubs from the mouths of alligators in what typically amounts to a 40- to 60-minute-plus round of golf. To accentuate glowing balls, scorecards, and the course's artwork and scenery, which include underwater, jungle, and dinosaur themes, golfers can opt to put on a pair of 3-D glasses for an additional fee. Besides welcoming families, friends, and dates, Shankz is able to host birthday parties, team-building, and other group activities. Beyond the neon greens, Shankz also features the Ballaster air cannon system, in which competitors fire Nerf balls from air cannons at targets and at each other to score points and ward off encroaching Nerf army tanks.
