Life Time is unrivaled when it comes to the flashy amenities and fitness perks that come with a membership. It's the kind of fitness club where, if you do it right, you can turn indoor rock climbing into a weekly workout. Where you can learn squash or racquetball just because. Where yoga, pilates and cycling group classes are easily accessible. The top-notch cardio and weights floor is open 24/7. Afterward, cool off in the pool or get sweaty in the sauna. The spa and cafe are open to anyone.

You don't have to see a performance at Miller Outdoor Theatre to enjoy a picnic on the hill in Hermann Park, but if you're going there anyway, why not? It's one of the best date-night spots in the city, and all you need is a blanket, a cooler and some refreshments for a memorable evening. Throw in some alcohol and a little Shakespeare, and it might rank as one of your best nights of the year.
