Fair but challenging seems to be the ethos of course architect Bill Johnston and The Hideout Golf Club, the 18-hole, 6,981-yard grassy gem sculpted into the scenic area surrounding Lake Brownwood. The par 72 flows through a circuit of wide fairways that let players liberally use their driver. Though treacherously placed, The Hideout?s sandtraps are also fair?most will reward a sound bunker shot. But while golfers will appreciate the player-friendly features, they shouldn?t take the course lightly. Ravines and water hazards come into play on multiple holes, and the course plays to a formidable 74.1 rating from the tips. To make the club even more hospitable, The Hideout has a dynamic practice facility with a 5,000 square-foot practice green and a full-length driving range, where golfers can practice hitting with every club and mastodon fossil in their bag.

Though the creatures on display at Dinosaur World don’t need much space to roam, plenty of care has been taken to furnish them a comfortable habitat. They peer imposingly from the hillsides of Kentucky, crane their necks up through native trees, and stomp through prairie fields. Although a life-size mammoth or T. rex might be hard to miss, little visitors might still jump with delight at noticing a baby dino suddenly appear from behind a bush. Giant brachiosaurus necks arch high above treetops, while toothy meat-eaters and spiny stegosauruses roam the world below. The fiberglass, steel, and concrete models reach up to 80 feet in length, and are built according to the latest scientific discoveries about what dinosaurs looked like and what styles were trendy in the Mesozoic era.
The first Dinosaur World location was a former alligator farm in Florida and five years later another one was opened in Kentucky. As Swedish-born Christer Svensson began to fill it with statues, he consulted with experts around the world to not only create realistic reptiles but to surround them with fun, educational activities. Kids can sift through sand to find shark’s teeth, gastropod shells, and trilobites in a fossil dig, get to know some lizards a little better on the playground, or examine ancient eggs and raptor claws in the museum.
Chef Grady Spears has authored numerous cookbooks and showcased his skills on Good Morning America and the Today show, yet he still doesn't identify with the term chef. He's a cowboy cook—a long, tall Texan who made a living punching and selling cattle until a freak happenstance involving a quitting chef landed him in the grill-pilot seat. Patrons at Grady's Line Camp Steakhouse won't find any polished bamboo floors; instead, gritty hardwood and log-cabin-style seating complement the hearty menu, responsible for the restaurant's placement on Texas Monthly magazine's list of the 38 best steak houses in the Lone Star State. Patrons can snuggle up to grilled steaks and southwestern-style stuffed peppers after enjoying a beer-battered and fried appetizer or can clink longnecks to live music on the weekends for a rowdy evening without regretting trying to tip over a snoozing cowboy.
