The friendly staffers at Bounce House's multiple Virginia locales breathe new life into the term sock hop, as well as lots of air into inflatable play surfaces. During Open Jump sessions and birthday parties, sock-clad moppets aged 1–12 can hop to their heels’ content across a cadre of themed inflatables, which catapult youngsters into TV-station simulacra and onto the surface of an air-hockey machine. As parents supervise, they can compare their children's bouncing with that of the stock market using complimentary WiFi. Each Bounce House fuels fun by keeping its snack bar fully stocked.

Amid all the indoor turf-sports fields of the Williamsburg Indoor Sports Complex, there's one dark maze that's lit by black lights and glowing neon walls alone. In this shadowy space, players blast beams of light from their lasers, engaging in team combat and open play inside a 5,700-square-foot, space-themed arena. They dodge behind glowing wall lights, illuminated mock computer screens, and walls painted to resemble metal and rivets. Players as young as 5 can navigate the arena's black-lit halls, while the staff helps keep competition friendly during open play and birthday parties.

Carefree Boat Club loads groups of up to eight explorers on an eager watercraft for a half day of cruising on the ocean waves. After arriving an hour early and completing a 45-minute training session, captains pocket four-hour boating and fishing licenses, select a seaworthy vessel—such as a Sea Ray 182 bowrider or a Triumph fishing boat—and putter across scenic waterscapes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Fishermen can hook flounder and striped bass at the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel while water-sports enthusiasts skim past landlubbers on water-skis or develop death grips as they tube within range of historic Williamsburg. After a morning or afternoon of sea skimming and arguing over who should call whom Ishmael, boaters can take shore leave at the various local beaches for a snack or a nap in the sun. Renters are responsible for picking up fuel costs, which can fluctuate daily; water sporters should bring their own equipment, as skis, tubes, and inflatable cabana bars are not available at the club.

Called America's Best New Public Course Under $75 in 2006 by Golf Digest, King Carter’s course of scenic fairways and championship tees challenges ball-smackers of every strength. Up to two golfers can club through King Carter’s par 71 greenery (up to $49 value each), which features up to 6,818 yards of majestic vineyard views. King Carter’s Old World–inspired course design invites golfers with its natural woods, glistening streams, dramatic contours, and sand traps hosting life-size dioramas of The Iliad. Game-day golfers will also receive two small buckets of range balls (a $3 value each) to practice at King Carter’s 20 station tees and short-game area, plus a cart for cruising the fairways. After swinging their way across the well-tended turf, metal-rod-wielders can mend fatigued physiques with a meal fit for a summer camper: chips, a bottle of soda, and a choice of a hot dog, hamburger, or cheeseburger (an $8 value).

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Founded in 1889, Preservation Virginia is one of the oldest historic-preservation organizations in the country. Its dedicated team has worked on more than 200 historic places, including landscapes, structures, and archaeological sites. The organization provides visitors with a tangible example of life in the past at a number of historic homes from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, including Patrick Henry's and Chief Justice John Marshall's homes. Historic Jamestowne, the site of the first permanent British settlement in North America, recreates the landscape of the first meeting between the explorers and Native Americans. Due to the work of the organization, visitors still gaze upon a yeoman planter's cottage that dates back to 1740. Preservation Virginia also teaches aspiring laymen during conservation workshops, compiles lists of endangered historic sites, and spearheads tobacco-barn-protection efforts.
