The museum focuses on education through play, with hands-on exhibits that foster each child's quest for knowledge, although parents are likely to learn a thing or two along the way. Size: 44,000 square feet of indoor interactive exhibit space on four acres of land The Building: as part of its efforts to stay green, the museum incorporates many recycled materials, such as old gym bleachers turned into railing and the same employees that worked there yesterday Eye Catcher: Mama and Max T. Rex?full-size animatronic dinosaurs that live outdoors and roar during spring and summer Permanent Mainstay: Our Place on the Prairie, where kids simulate picking, sorting, and sending goods to market on a conveyor belt Don't Miss: the chance to build a pipe and direct the flow of water at the Splash Table Hidden Gem: the butterflies and flowers hiding in the Living Maze, an outdoor labyrinth made of prairie grasses

Bookended by the rippling waters of Lake Madison and Round Lake, The Lakes Golf Course’s nine-hole layout arches over 3,128 yards of rolling, lush terrain. Conscientious clubbers will spend time at the adjacent driving range before the round to prepare swings and motivate lazy golf carts in time for the first hole, a par 5, 533-yard monolith rated the course’s hardest hole. Throughout the layout, gentle elevation changes create the occasional tricky lie and give way to splendid views of the lakes and the surrounding countryside topography. Those looking to extend their golf outing to an overnight trip or romantic getaway with their sand-wedge can hunker down in the rustic but modern accommodations at The Lodge, or pitch a tent made of polo shirts at the Camping Grounds. Course at a Glance: 9-hole, par 36 course Course rating of 72.2 (adjusted for 18-hole round) Slope rating of 121 Three tee options

Wall Stickz beautifies interiors with more than 200 cut-to-order vinyl wall decals, crafted from high-quality Oracal vinyl in 16 vibrant hues, which adhere smoothly to any clean, dry surface for a faux painted finish. “Live Laugh Love” ($15.95) and other inspirational quotes scroll winsomely along staircases, and lifeless junk rooms animate with dramatic vignettes of the New York skyline ($17.95), an angry grizzly bear ($9.95), or a cloud of multisized bubbles ($19.95). Six-packs of reusable chalkboard African animals ($19.95) cavort between cornices and dutifully record wipe-away reminders such as “I love you” and “Buy more rhino chow.” While Wall Stickz’s decals are designed to hug surfaces indefinitely, they disengage easily, sparing dry-wall dermises from expensive and painful tattoo removal.

Country Meats' skilled butchers cull from a colossal cache of fresh, top-quality meats, slicing custom cuts of beef, wild game, buffalo, and pork. The knowledgeable staff slings more than 30 brat flavors, including pineapple, green onion, and skinless varieties infused with cheese. Whole chickens deliver protein alongside their red-meat brethren, which include gourmet burger patties and freshly cut sirloin and filet-mignon steaks. Summer sausages artfully complement the shop's smattering of cheeses, and edible accouterments such as farm-fresh eggs and potato salad round out meaty meals. Every Saturday, customers can voyage to Country Meats to nosh on house-made samples, and during hunting season, the shop's hours expand to accommodate wild-game processing and bouts of camouflage Hide-and-Seek.
