Even with more than 20 years of teaching experience behind her, Robin Bray continues to broaden her understanding of core-conditioning techniques and mind-body work. She brings her continually expanding knowledge to Fitness Barre, where she helps students of all ages and fitness levels develop stronger, leaner, and more toned bodies over time.

The boutique fitness studio embraces barre-style workouts, which combine elements of core-strengthening exercises, Pilates, yoga, orthopedic stretching, and isometric movements alongside a ballet barre to create a low-impact exercise regimen for the entire body. Over the course of 60 minutes, students will perform sequences of small, controlled movements followed by deep, sustained stretches. Instructors may incorporate light weights into the class and more advanced sessions intensify the challenge by proceeding at a more rigorous pace.

In Jack Kerouac?s On the Road, narrator Sal Paradise has this to say about New York?s most famous river: "If you drop a rose in the Hudson River at its mysterious source in the Adirondacks, think of all the places it journeys by as it goes out to sea forever?think of that wonderful Hudson Valley." At Mountain Valley Guides, the kayaking team allows customers to heed Sal?s thoughts and explore the river's expanse of open water, marshes, islands, and cliffs.

When Joan Schaming and Ronald Williams opened Balic of Clinton in 2004, they wanted to make sure their clientele understood the importance of sampling wines before they commit to a bottle. In their shop, they hold daily tastings of their rotating selection of reds, whites, dessert wines, and specialty potables, which they recommend to pair with selections from their inventory of gourmet foods and chocolates.

Sound Excursions describes their carefully curated group experiences as "field trips for adults." It's easy to see why: every outing takes groups to a new realm of Washington, whether it's the frothy shores of Puget Sound, inland forests and mountains, or tables at Seattle's thriving restaurants. The events held at these diverse locations range from culinary workshops on topics such as sushi-making and moonshine-tasting, to adventurous excursions with whitewater rafting or kayaking, to laid-back themed party cruises. For many outings, luxury transportation is provided.

Reber River Trips offer the best of what's old and what's new?via raft, kayak, or tube. Though their boat launch on the Delaware River is one of Barryville's newest, the Reber family has been helping guests who are exploring leisurely wilderness adventures in the region since 1947.

For a trip through history, the Rebers can direct boaters and floaters to especially well-preserved portions of the waterway, where adventurers can keep their eyes peeled for eagles and deer. Rod-brandishers reel in the river's plentiful assortment of fish, and party rafts host up to 20 revelers and up to three pi?atas filled with trout.
