  • Valhalla Fantasy Faire
    The jousting knights at the Valhalla Renaissance Faire aren't just play acting. While draped in 130 pounds of steel armor and a helmet with only a quarter-inch eye slot, they spur their 2,000-pound steeds toward each other and charge. When solid hemlock lance and knight collide at up to 30 mph, the skilled riders must somehow control their horses while absorbing an impact so violent it's been known to break bones. It's a realistic glimpse into the past and far from the only one at the faire, where costumed attendees encounter full armored combat between knights, shoot arrows at targets, learn to sword fight, listen to ancient music, and giggle at jesters' antics. They can also visit the merchant marketplace's nearly 100 merchants and crafters and sample culinary delicacies.

  • The Dailey Method Sacramento
    A competitive runner and a figure-skating sports enthusiast respectively, Stacey Armijo and Sandra Lemos have always been physically active. However, it wasn?t until they discovered the Dailey Method?s unique blend of Pilates, ballet, and yoga that both realized their fitness regimens weren?t properly balanced. Both athletes went straight to the source?the method?s founder, Jill Dailey?to kick-start their teacher training, knowing even then that they had found their calling. Following in Jill?s footsteps, Stacey and Sandra help students of all abilities strengthen and stretch their bodies? major muscle groups. Their low-impact classes are designed to build up the core muscles, develop long lean muscle, align the spine, and tone lean limbs, all while challenging the mind, body, and spirit to touch their proverbial toes.

  • Scuba World Sacramento
    Andy Siebert floated in the water, weightless—almost as if in outer space—and watched as all 40 feet of a Galapagos Island whale shark drifted past him. It’s moments like that one that Andy lives for, having devoted his life to scuba diving. He took his first dive as a teenager, but didn’t take the sport seriously until he turned 42, at which point he began his journey to log more than 3,000 dives. Now, as owner of Scuba World, Andy works to help others discover their love of the underwater sport. One part retail shop and one part scuba-diving school, the PADI five-star IDC dive center is chock-full of gear for purchase and rental, as well as expert instructors who teach classes for divers of all levels, including instructor-level classes. Their classes range from beginner discovery sessions to open-water-certification courses to rescue-diver classes for the more advanced diver who is worried about all those fish in the ocean who need help getting out. Andy’s wife and partner, Lynn Siebert, plans trips that take divers to waters all over the world, including the nearby Monterey Bay and more far-flung expeditions in Micronesia.

  • California River Adventures
    Groups meet at Camp Lotus for a brief orientation and safety prep before the rafting rally down to Lake Folsom begins. Ideal for all skill sets, CRA's program accommodates passengers ages seven and up. The four-hour journey shoves off into a gentle warm-up section of class-II waters to prepare for the gorge's jostling class-III rapids. Fourteen-foot self-bailing rafts equipped with first aid, river-rescue kits, and Coast Guard?approved life jackets safely seat eight passengers plus an expert guide. As a team, the boatload of adventurers navigates the water like a squirrel surfing in a washing machine, punching through white caps and splashing about wavy highs and lows along the 12-mile route. All gear is included, and participants are only required to pack products that make the trip more pleasurable (swimsuit, drinking water in a durable bottle, sunscreen, shoulder-mounted boom-box, and a dry change of clothes).
