  • The Hideout Golf Club
    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. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par-72 course designed by Bill Johnston * Length of 6,981 from the farthest tees * Course rating of 74.1 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 139 from the farthest tees * Four tee options * Scorecard

  • Bluff Dale Vineyards
    A patio extends from Bluff Dale Vineyards's tasting room, presenting an expansive view of the sun-drenched grapevines and sloping foothills that D Magazine called "impressive." This swath of land grows the succulent grapes used to make the winery's fruit-forward selection of silken reds and aromatic whites. In addition to an oak-aged cabernet sauvignon, crisp chardonnay, and sweet muscat, the tasting room features a Texas cream sherry that is blended with the traditional—and time-intensive—solera system instead of with an industrial-sized cocktail shaker. Owners David and Theresa Hayes also host live bands at their winery from time to time, inviting visitors to attend for free, bring a picnic, and tap their toes to the melodies of such groups as the Double J-R Band or the jazzy Pearl Street 4.

  • Dinosaur World Texas
    Dinosaur World lets modern-day adventurers see what the world was like when dinosaurs ruled the earth. More than 150 life-size dinosaurs peer imposingly from the hillsides, crane their necks up through native trees, and stomp through prairie fields at the theme parks that stretch out over 20-plus acres of land in Texas, Florida, and Kentucky. The fiberglass, steel, and concrete dinosaurs reach up to 80 feet in length, and are built according to the latest scientific discoveries about what dinosaurs looked like. Starting November 8, visitors will see 20 dinos come to life at the new animatronic dinosaur exhibit. Visitors who want to experience what it's like to be a paleontologist can dig for fossils at the Fossil Dig and uncover a life-size stegosaurus skeleton from under the sand in the Boneyard. The Dino Gem Excavation lets explorers uncover something entirely different?real minerals and gems?and a geode cracker lets them split geodes to reveal their beautiful crystals. Before leaving, visitors can play on the dinosaur-themed playground and check out the Prehistoric Museum to see a variety of cast and real fossils.

  • Spartan Race
    Extreme athletes banded together to design Spartan Races' intense courses orchestrated over standardized distances, each strewn with natural and man-made obstacles to test mind-body fitness, resilience, stamina, and strength, designed to leave participants exhausted and exhilarated. In waves of 200, runners collect smudges and stains as they perform box jumps, haul heavy sandbags, and juke feral linebackers. Depending on where in the world they're participating, the course may be as short as 3 miles or, for extremely practiced athletes, as long as a full marathon.

  • Dublin Dr Pepper Bottling Company
    In 1885, behind the counter of Wade Morrison's Old Corner Drug Store on the corner of Six Shooter Junction in Waco, Texas, pharmacist Charles Adlerton was struck by an idea. After observing how much patrons loved the combined scent of the many ingredients hidden within the soda fountain, he decided to create a drink that captured all their properties. He wound up inventing Dr. Pepper, and after one sip, Dublin Bottling Works owner Sam Houston Prim knew he wanted to sell it. Though the famous drink and plant have since parted ways, Dublin Bottling Works continues to celebrate that original legacy by crafting pure-cane-sugar sodas in chilled glass bottles, the way their employees have for more than 100 years. Today, the bottlers' products find their way onto shelves all around the nation, and they invite visitors to come watch them while they work. They lead tours through their historic plant and the memorabilia-laden museum that now occupies their original offices. At the end of the tour, they make a stop in Old Doc's Soda Shop, where visitors can sample their products from an old fashioned soda fountain and buy bottled goods to drink at home or shake vigorously and then offer to neighbors who keep eating your newspapers.
