  • Artascope Studios
    Inside two locations—one a Victorian Home in South Portland and the other a new studio in Yarmouth—the experienced artists at Artascope Studios share their expertise in various mediums with adults and teenagers of all skill levels. Throughout a schedule of workshops, instructors provide all the necessary supplies as they teach groups how to craft jewelry out of wire, beads, or metal, arrange glass bits into colorful mosaics, and use paint to expressively capture a mountain landscape's majesty or a urban wilderness's hidden Waldos. Studio memberships allow art denizens to access exclusive studio hours at the Yarmouth location and receive discounts on other classes and events. They also lead three-hour intensive Art Night Out sessions that focus on specific projects such as crocheting wire or setting a resin pendant. Through reservation, Artascope's experts can host private parties and one-on-one lessons.

  • The Motorsport Lab
    The Motorsport Lab lets drivers tame and test a fleet of classic American muscle cars and exotic, foreign sportsters. Drivers receive instruction before sampling the speed and handling of vehicles such as the Aston Martin DB9, Bentley GT, and Lotus Elise. Instructors either compress racing experiences into 60-minute agility tests or prolong the rush by guiding drivers on three-day excursions to Tampa, the Berkshires, or the nearest no-contact demolition derby. The Motorsport Lab also runs an advanced driving school, teaching students the subtleties of controlling Ferraris and Lamborghinis.

  • Basics Fitness Center
    More than 20 years ago and in the exact same location, the folks behind Basics Fitness Center were running a gymnastics program for local youth. Today, the studio is home to an adult-oriented gym that focuses on?you guessed it?the basics of fitness. Here, trainers abide by a simple philosophy: great health is about exercising, yes, but it's also about creating better eating habits and establishing a healthier lifestyle. The club's extremely spacious interior is home to free weights, machines, and an airy studio that hosts group classes in yoga and tai chi. Members can also meet with nutrition specialists and personal trainers to set tangible goals such as "build muscle" and "step away from the candy."

  • Griffin Club
    Griffin Club in South Portland is a popular restaurant that features a delicious menu. The excellent quality, set in a laid-back atmosphere, will have you coming back for more.

Or, if you're looking for a good spot to hit up after work, it's got a popular happy hour and pretty decent selection at its bar. Located right in the center of Maine's largest city, a trip to Griffin Club is definitely worthwhile.

  • South Portland Sailing Center
    The captains at South Portland Sailing Center have a knack for sailing not only because of their licensure and training, but also because many of them have called a boat home at some point. They share the expertise they gained from living on and conquering the waters off the east coast with their clients, who can charter a variety of crafts including a gaff-rigged New England Cat and a full-keel cruising boat. After a relaxing ride or a lesson, members can kick back at the park next to the river.
