Armory Golf Center offers players everything they need to get better at golf except for an actual golf course. Target flags positioned at various distances dot the 20-acre driving range, giving players something to aim for as instead of their boss's car as they launch golf balls off 15 grass tees and 12 mat stations. They can take cuts in the daylight until the lights come on for twilight practice or receive some help from PGA and LPGA professionals when solo reps cease to yield results. On top of private lessons, the pros conduct summer camps, clinics, and academies for players of all ages. Many sessions incorporate a number of technologies to assist the instructor, including V1 Pro Swing Analysis and an ES14 Launch Monitor.

The serene yogarie offers more than 15 different yoga classes, accommodating beginners, rusty practitioners returning after exhaustive time-travel adventures, and master yogis in town on layovers. You can mix and match from among the studio’s many options to find the perfect posture for you, or follow one class through six sessions. Beginners may opt for the Newbie Yogi You-Be course to develop their strength and flexibility before moving on to one of the more demanding courses, such as the noontime WiserEnergizer, which revives work-slumped students, or the fast-paced Kundalini Rising course, which revitalizes the body’s organs for better health and super powers.
Creekside Lanes provides strong-forearmed rollers with the greasy lanes necessary to perform the age-old ritual of multi-pin destruction. Don the motley footwear required to enjoy two full rounds of cannonball heaving, and stop in on Friday and Saturday night for cosmic bowling. Twosomes of bowling neophytes can rely on the forgiving support of ball-embracing bumpers, and pin-thrashing veterans can sustain their serious matches with trash talk, pointing out their competitors’ uncanny resemblance to Night Court characters. Although not included in the Groupon, a game room offers billiards and video games for those who are bowled out but want to stick around and soak in Creekside Lanes’ friendly, welcoming atmosphere without spending the night in a cozy air duct.
In 1996, Scrapbook Traditions began in the basement of Tracy Gilley's home. A woman named Jackie Scott had hired Gilley to put together a scrapbook of her life and family history as a Christmas gift. In five short months, Gilley produced more than 950 pages that covered more than a century of the Scott family history. When Jackie died several years later, all 10 scrapbooks were put on display at her memorial; guests at the service pored over the books and Jackie's son expressed his immense gratitude to Gilley for compiling the family history.
Scrapbook Traditions believes in the importance of scrapbooking to preserve memories and record history for future generations. The store offers an array of courses to help scrapbookers get started as well as shelves full of supplies, ranging from sheets of colorful 12?x12? cardstock and sticky adhesives capable of mounting bites of pizza from a couple's first date.
For more than a decade, The Hitting Zone has helped baseball and softball players hone their slugging skills with top-notch batting cages.

While three cages devour tokens and spit out speedy pitches, schedule-savvy batters claim one of four regular cages for a designated hour of ball-pummeling against a Cy Young android lookalike.
