  • DownUnder
    Downunder Fitness and Surf’s SurfSET and SUPnSURF classes offer a fun alternative to jogging on a treadmill or other traditional exercise methods. While standing or lying facedown on simulators, pupils learn surfing and standup paddleboarding basics without going down to the ocean or having to help a mermaid retie her shell brassiere. In addition to fitness classes, Downunder Fitness and Surf offers yoga sessions on a beach or, for added difficulty, atop a floating paddleboard.

  • Urban Scavenger Race
    In the spirit of TV scavenger-hunt races and exploring local cities in a new way, the team behind the Urban Scavenger Race organizes hunts designed to support neighborhood businesses, locally based and serving non-profits, and raise money for the Stamford and New Haven communities. Teams pile as many very human-looking robots as they can legally fit in the car. Teams will arrive early to sign in and show off their family-friendly costumes to judges, who will select a winning getup. Upon receiving a clue sheet, teams head out using their smartphones and the kindness of strangers to track down the locations hinted at in the clues. Teams have to acquire a stamp or take a group photo at each destination, making sure to return to the sponsor site before time is up. Afterward, participants can enjoy an after party that includes drink specials and snacks.

  • AAFI, LLC
    Unlike swimming, nobody learns to fly by being thrown in the deep end. Instead, it takes gradual instruction to teach students the controls and feel of an aircraft guided by their hands. Luckily, instructors Antonio Ferrara and Zachary Barrett specialize in that sort of slow-burning scholarship. Both men make their living with their heads in the clouds. Ferrara flies for a commercial airline, ferrying passengers across vast distances in enormous jets. Barrett also possesses his commercial pilot's license, along with an FAA Flight Instructor certification. At Affordable Aircraft & Flight Instruction, LLC, the duo helps fledgling flyers find their sky legs with discovery flights and group ground school. They also teach longer courses, guiding students toward certifications as private-, multiengine-, and commercial-rated pilots.

  • The Island Belle
    The Island Belle—a historic, three-story Mississippi River–style paddle wheeler—has carried passengers along the Virginia coastline, the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi river, and other scenic waterways. Food is served aboard the vessel during breakfast, luncheon, and dinner cruises, which feature entrees such as stuffed pork loin with prosciutto, dried apricot, and sage. For those who are more thirsty than hungry, bartenders mix stiff drinks during cocktail cruises.

  • Helicopter Flight Service
    Once the chopper lifts off from the Downtown Manhattan Heliport and rises above New York Harbor, the Big Apple's sprawling metropolis fills passengers' sightlines. Rotors spinning, the copter flies past the Statue of Liberty and toward the Chrysler Building, the Empire State Building, and other looming examples of urban architecture. During these tours, sightseers sit comfortably within one of the company's fleet of Bell 407 helicopters, which boast giant windows and enough legroom to roundhouse kick roving bands of skydivers looking to freeload their way onto the aircraft. They also have a newly purchased EC130 Airbus Helicopter. The helicopter pilots also charter their aircraft on trips to cities including Boston and Atlantic City.
