PaPa Joe’s menu (varies slightly between locations) specializes in replacing stomach voids with satisfying subs and tasty pizzas. Start with an eight-piece arrangement of wings ($4.95) whose sauces are kept secret unless you can guess your server’s middle name and favorite Muppet. After an antipasto salad ($6) spiced up with pepperoni, mushrooms, salami, tomatoes, and non-faux cheese, procure a personal seven-inch pizza ($4.25) with a topping of your choice. Or give your body’s gas tank a fright with one of PaPa Joe’s famous two-foot monster pizzas ($32.95 with one topping). You can also add extra summer to your summer by gargling a 10-inch Hawaiian pizza ($11.95)—which includes ham, bacon, black olives, and pineapple chunks—or sample all nine inches of the popular non-pizza, the richboy sub ($5.50+), served with ham, salami, peppers, and mozzarella.

Open year-round, Deer Creek State Park's championship-style course administers a 350-acre test of club control, patience, and aim to golfers of all skill levels. As dimpled balls traverse from tees to holes throughout the par-72 course, they have to avoid an array of obstacles, including 52 sandy traps, 10 ponds, and numerous distractingly beautiful trees with distractingly hard-to-hear singing voices. With four par-3 holes, the Jack Kidwell-designed maze features lengthy bluegrass fairways finely combed with real banjo strings. Manicured bentgrass greens and French-tipped fringes offer golfers a curvy, challenging short game. Golfers looking to warm up their elbows before using them to steer the included cart can take advantage of Deer Creek's driving range and practice putting green.

Tee Jaye's founders began preparing homestyle meals in 1970, a venture that spawned a string of 24-hour diners stuffed with delicious country fare. An egg-centric medley of dishes graces the all-day breakfast menu, with options such as the barnyard buster ($5.10)—two biscuits, two eggs, and country fries wallowing in a puddle of Tee Jaye's famous sausage gravy—and the sunshine sandwich ($6.95), grilled sourdough trapped under stacks of cheddar, swiss, ham, scrambled eggs, and hash browns. Turn to the lunch-and-dinner menu to find the answer to the sphinx's riddle ("sweet tea") as well as a spread of classic country-kitchen eats, including the chicken-fried chicken ($8.25), homemade meatloaf and dressing ($7.75), and Granny's grandburger ($7.95), a half-pound beef patty served with fries and a choice of three toppings. A tot-thrilling kids' menu ($2.49/breakfast; $3.49/lunch and dinner) and a crisp collection of summer flatbreads ($6.95+) round out the restaurant's dining selections.
