For more than 25 years, the International Women’s Air & Space Museum has tickled intellects with exhibits dedicated to the women who defied societal conventions to explore the sky and outersky. Current exhibits showcase the life and times of the infamous Amelia Earhart, the paper-helicopter-building abilities of Katharine Wright (sister to the Wright brothers), and the tremendous courage shown by the 39 female Air Force service pilots that gave their lives in WWII. Hurry in to catch the IWASM’s exhibit 100 Ohio Women in Air & Space, on display until January 2.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will celebrate women sound sculptors during this year’s benefit with performances by iconic female inductees, including Wanda Jackson, Mavis Staples, and Darlene Love. Cyndi Lauper completes the all-star lineup of female vocalists, all of whom are featured in the Women Who Rock exhibit, which spotlights more than 70 women who rocked history on two artifact-packed floors. Proceeds gleaned during the event will benefit the Rock Hall’s educational activities, which enrich audiences of more than 50,000 students each year, from bouncing toddlers to sponge-brained adults. Additional performances from Tears for Fears member Curt Smith and crooner Chuck Jackson will also beat rock rhythms onto eardrums during the evening.

A 150-foot wind turbine heralds the entryway of Great Lakes Science Center. Combined with a 300-foot solar canopy, the turbine supplies 6% of the museum's power but also serves another purpose: to drive home the science center's commitment to research, education, and scientific discovery. Inside the Alternative Energy exhibit, visitors can touch their fingertips to a kiosk that displays real-time and historical data on energy consumption. Or, at the Steamship William G. Mather, visitors can explore a four-story engine room that once propelled the 618-foot flagship. After exploring the lunar lander models and flight simulators of the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, visitors can track moon dust to the Omnimax Theater and absorb scientific knowledge through 11,600 watts of digital sound.

In addition to presenting exhibits to more than 300,000 visitors annually, the science center leads the charge on science education. Onsite scientists organize space and curriculum for freshmen in the Cleveland metropolitan school district's inaugural STEM high school. The school teaches in a project-based learning environment where students are encouraged to delve into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The hot spot’s Bronze Peacock Room commemorates Houston's rich history and the blues clubs where Lightnin' Hopkins and Big Mama Thornton held sway, and features an enormous hand-painted mural depicting other local legends such as Albert Collins and Johnny "Guitar" Watson.

The downtown lounge and golfery boasts six high-def golf simulators—massive windows that transport you into the scenic world of one of 16 top golf courses—along with a full menu of spectator fare in a fun and casual environment. During your retreat from the unmanicured greens of the everyday, you and your three closest friends or parolees will get four hours to play 18-hole golf on one of the course simulators; choose to use the lounge’s provided clubs, or bring your own for optimal swinging success (up to an $86 value). Shoot a fake round among the dramatic beauty of Pebble Beach or the lush tropical sights of Miami’s Blue Monster. When your ball touches the screen, the simulator picks it up and carries it to the exact locale on the virtual course—based on your sphere’s speed, height, and velocity—allowing you to show off, swagger, or cower in shame at your real-life abilities on the simulated greens.
