  • Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum
    Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum celebrates one of the country's oldest transportation systems. It's no surprise then that the museum itself has moved from one location to another. It first opened in 1980, but soon outgrew its original space, and in 1998 took over a former PRR master mechanics building. Here, visitors immerse themselves in the rich history of the rail. Size: The museum's collection stretches over three floors of exhibits, plus a movie theater Eye Catcher: A replica of the K4-1361?known as the "official steam locomotive of Pennsylvania"?stands in the lobby. The original is slated for full restoration by museum staff. Permanent Mainstay: How to Run a Railroad, which features model trains and teaches visitors how difficult it was to keep a network of trains running smoothly in the era preceding satellite communications Don't Miss: Maintenance Division, which honors the workers who built and maintained the tracks, and dealt with disaster on the rails Hands-On Experiments: At Transportation Division, visitors can attempt to master the fast-paced skill of track switching to see first-hand why the brakeman's job was the most treacherous Pro Tip: Though snacks are available in the gift shop, there is no food service on site; visitors can, however, bring their own food and enjoy a picnic on the museum's grounds Special Programs: In the summer, the museum hosts live local bands in its [Alive@5 concert series]9http://www.railroadcity.com/alive5-concerts/) Leave Your Mark: If someone you know was a railroad worker, you can have them included in the museum's database, The Call Board. The database is available online and in the museum.

  • Paintball Promos
    When paintballers feel ready for action but aren't sure where they'd like to do battle, they point their browsers to www.paintballpromos.com. There they'll find packages for nearby paintball fields, so they don't have to litter their own backyards with empty oil barrels and fill tiny water balloons with tempera paint. Packages usually include the rental of a marker and mask; paintballs and air fills are an extra charge at the field.

  • Coal Tubin'
    Once deemed an eyesore, the winding, 46-mile-long Stonycreek River has undergone a transformation. Today, it abounds with natural life, such as beavers and smallmouth bass, as well as the longest stretch of continuous rapids on the East Coast. With its fleet of inflatable kayaks and tubes, Coal Tubin’ provides a variety of ways for customers to experience the area’s scenery. Knowledgeable guides lead group tours inside inflatable kayaks, whereas inner tubes leisurely float under bridges and down gentle waters lined with pine trees and perplexed coal miners who took a wrong turn. Outdoors adventures also unfold on land, where guided hikes trek to nearby vistas.

  • Fugitive 3 Mile Escape Run
    The escaped inmates’ hearts pump hard in their chests as they zig and zag through a forest, evading the grasp of a guard in hot pursuit. Scuttling up the mud-lined slope of a hill, the fugitives holler with frustration as the guard closes in on them, ripping a flag off their belts before retreating back into the trees. Though this adrenaline-filled scene could be from a blockbuster film, it’s a common sight at the many Fugitive 3 Mile Escape Runs held across the country. Before taking off in their race heat, runners of all ages, dubbed inmates, slip into flag belts festooned with three flags. They leap, roll, crawl, and do-si-do across the course toward their freedom, seeking out the elusive finish line while avoiding the flag-grabbing hands of the race’s resident guards. Water and aid stations throughout the course ensure that inmates remain hydrated and safe, and supportive loved ones can hand nail-file-filled cakes to their favorite inmate from the spectator section. Once safely on the other side of the race, participants revel in their accomplishment at the freedom celebration, where live music, food, and drinks bolster the festive post-run atmosphere.

  • Sandyvale Wine Festival
    On the verdant green of Sandyvale Memorial Gardens, the Sandyvale Wine Festival celebrates nature's bounty with the fruits of local wineries. Attendees savor sips from tasting glasses as they wander the stalls, perhaps even inspired to purchase bottles and cases for their own cellars. Caterers dispense palate-cleansing bites and artisan cheese. Wandering magicians, musicians, and palm readers keep the evening alive with wonder, while tethered hot air balloons allow riders to aerate their chardonnays with ozone. From two stages, a lineup of live bands aurally indulges its audience.
