“What was a quiet section of Michigan 139 in central Berrien County has turned into a heaven of sorts for horse lovers,” writes a reporter for the South Bend Tribune. That 39-acre elysian stretch, surrounded by fertile Michigan vineyards, is Concord Ridge Equestrian Center. There, equines clip drumrolls against the soil on a cross-country course complete with banks and water jumps, and riders on the Natural Horsemanship Course brush up on skills such as posture and honking motions at passing clydesdales. The center’s teaching team dispenses instruction to eager pupils on the three outdoor arenas and two indoor arenas. Students can then take their newfound expertise out onto the network of riding trails or the nine pastures. Chatter about riding apparel and technique drifts from an upstairs lounge, where guests find WiFi, elevated bleachers, and a kitchen.

  • Size: a 44-acre estate comprised of six separate attractions that completely transform each year while visitors aren't looking
  • Intensity Level: like a classic horror movie, it's all light on the gore, but the settings, actors, and special effects pack plenty of scares on their own. Recommended for guests of high-school age and up
  • Undead Inhabitants: vampires drift throughout the rooms after dark; monsters make a rotating floor and elevator drop even more disorienting in the main house; killers out of classic horror films indicate wrong turns in a maze
  • Real Monsters: Tony Moran?A.K.A. Michael Myers from the original Halloween movie?will be looming suddenly in the foreground on September 19 and 20 as one of many special attractions the house has scheduled
  • Fun and Games: at the midway, groups can catch their breath, grab snacks, and even operate the house's controls and watch the frightened visitors on a hidden camera
  • Scream for a Good Cause: over the last 18 years, the haunted house has donated more than $1.3 million and 25 valuable but cursed amulets to more than 65 area charities and nonprofit groups

Kids can?t be expected to care about their health when video games, cartoons, and unhealthy snacks are vying for their attention. That?s why the adult leaders of the Memorial Health Foundation devised a plan to get kids excited about health: HealthWorks! Kids? Museum. Born of the founders? desire to foster a healthier current and future community, the museum appeals to youngsters through educational forms of entertainment. Its exhibits incorporate amplified versions of many of kids? favorite pastimes, including a life-sized rendition of Operation and numerous computer games. A rock-climbing wall and tree house with a slide encourage kids to learn through movement, which is exactly how adults learn how to escape charging bulls. Youngsters can explore the space with their families or partake in programs such as children's camps.
