Michael Beasom began riding at age five. In his teen years, he got involved in the daily routine of caring for the horses at his grandparents' facility, Elton Cates Stables, and eventually took over the business after graduation. Now, all that wisdom is put into practice at Beasom Stable, where Michael and his wife, Megan, provide year-round lessons to riders both young and old. Keeping with his dream of becoming a renowned horse trainer, Michael also uses the facility to school steeds, and oversees the upkeep of 44 stalls and other on-site amenities.

The rolling emerald acres of this golfing Valhalla provide fairway-farers with a sweeping spread of short- and long-range training areas to hone ball-launching skills. Club collectors, armed with a day-pass punch card, can crush unlimited edifices of dimpled spheres from the 40,000-square-foot tee line of Zoysia grass without risk of waiting behind sloth-paced practice sessions. Alternatively, stock up for 18-hole outings at the PGA-professional-staffed pro shop, which stocks a variety of golfing shirts, grip-enhancing gloves, and accuracy-boosting Egyptian artifacts. Though not included in the value of this Groupon, you can also take a lesson from the professionals or relax at the Watering Hole for a cold beverage after a rough day on the links.
Named a Best Bargain Family Adventure by Southern Living magazine, Cascade Caverns encircles visitors in 64-degree corridors where they can see and feel millions of years of terrestrial history. The old and wizened cave was the first of the six major Texas cave attractions to be discovered, and the only one with an interior waterfall, which, at over 90 feet, has inspired awe in throngs of visitors over the years and slowly driven up Batman's rent. Visitors witness millions of water droplets reflecting brilliantly on the Diamond Ceiling, and watch slender stalactite and stalagmite formations slowly work toward their dreams of becoming corinthian columns. While moving from corridor to corridor, spelunkers may spot such unusual animals as cliff and leopard frogs, eastern pipistrelle bats, and Cascade Cavern salamanders.
