In support of her high-decibel new album, Rihanna kicks off her hotly anticipated LOUD tour with emphatic gusto and a sizzling roster of special guests. Like an art show at a sundae bar, the LOUD tour floods the senses, enchanting audiences with lavishly designed sets, myriad costume changes, move-busting dancers, and Rihanna's songbook of Grammy magnets. Crooner Cee Lo Green augments the songful offerings with his own vocal talents, and Roc Nation rapper and rhythm scientist J. Cole further helps resuscitate ear drums traumatized by the outside world's blaring car horns and shrill howler monkeys.

The picturesque grounds at Cherry Hill Campground invite campers to pitch tents, unfurl sleeping bags, and enjoy the relaxed pleasures of camping with family and friends. Dig stakes into spacious sleep sites, where lush trees shield tents from traffic, sun, and skinny-dipping deer. Simple amenities, including picnic tables, hot showers, and restrooms keep campers comfortable without spoiling the ground's rustic charm. A private fire pit melts s'mores and flickers light onto faces, setting the proper mood for scary stories and revealing that you replaced both of your hands with hooks. Friendly staffers stock the camp store with essentials such as firewood and vittles, and eagerly guide campers to nearby attractions, recommending one of the local golf courses or pointing out the dramatic skyline of the Darien Lake Theme Park.

The Livingston Country Club's golf course hosts an octogenarian expanse of 6,462 sloping green yards, sculpted into a winding par-72 test of skill. Golfers can take along a club-swinging companion and play eighteen holes while driving a golf cart across wide fairways renowned for their views of the Genesee Valley and centaurs arrayed in this season’s most fashionable tartans.

Hickory Ridge Golf & Country Club incorporates the natural lay of tree lines and waterways to form an 18-hole, par 72 course that presents shot-making challenges and scenic views. The signature fourth hole showcases the challenges and charms of the course, as the 431-yard par 4 requires a long tee shot to clear a ravine and before the dogleg left curves around walls of trees on the way to the green. Water comes into play on 13 holes, striking fear in the hearts of players who don’t trust their swings or haven't yet converted their golf bag into a personal flotation device. A driving range that stretches 300 yards into the distance helps golfers prepare for upcoming rounds and serves as the venue for golf lessons and clinics conducted by Hickory Ridge’s resident aces. The club also quiets rumbling stomachs with burgers, sandwiches, and french fries from the snack bar and Friday night dinner specials. Before or after rounds, golfers can load up their bags with balls and tees or replace shirts eaten by a rogue ball-washer at Hickory Ridge’s pro shop.

John Johnson and his brothers, Ben and Kirk, started Running Wild Paintball Inc. & Laser Tag when they were still in their teens. Today, the business includes five paintball fields where kids and adults can face off amid trees, a stream, and both natural and handmade bunkers. One field even has a western-style ghost town with a store, a jail, a mine, and a church. While paintball and Airsoft guns launch tangible projectiles, laser tag players politely take down opponents with beams of light. Additionally, Johnson can repair ailing paintball guns—he’s one of only a few certified master airsmiths in the country.
