The Island Belle—a historic, three-story Mississippi River–style paddle wheeler—has carried passengers along the Virginia coastline, the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi river, and other scenic waterways. Food is served aboard the vessel during breakfast, luncheon, and dinner cruises, which feature entrees such as stuffed pork loin with prosciutto, dried apricot, and sage. For those who are more thirsty than hungry, bartenders mix stiff drinks during cocktail cruises.

On Cue endorses merrymaking by entertaining visitors with pub-style grub, drinks, and games. Guests can claim one of the 15 pool tables for an exciting hour of scoring pocket points ($10–$14/hour for two, $3 fee for additional players), then explore the four dartboard areas, where players fling pointy things for free. While taking a breather from billiards, pool-hall denizens quench their thirst with libations at the full bar. Hungry customers can dunk jalapeño poppers ($6), buffalo wings ($6), and buffalo shrimp ($7) in a choice of blue cheese, ranch, barbecue, or honey-mustard dipping sauce, and those concerned about the big game can turn to On Cue's big-screen TV, which proudly displays sports.

In the spirit of TV scavenger-hunt races and exploring local cities in a new way, the team behind Urban Scavenger Race organizes hunts designed to support neighborhood businesses and raise money for the Stamford and New Haven communities. Before each four-hour race, teams of two to four people or very human-looking robots arrive early to sign in and show off their family-friendly costumes to judges, who will select a winning getup. Upon receiving a clue sheet, teams venture into the city, using only public transportation, smartphones, and the kindness of strangers to track down the locations hinted at in the clues. Teams have to acquire a stamp or take a group photo at each destination, making sure to return to the sponsor site before time is up. Afterward, participants aged 21 and older get a wristband for an after party that includes drink specials and snacks.

Lush tree cover, rolling hills, and lakes dot the landscape surrounding the Connecticut River that GrandView CampResort & Cottages calls home. With this nearly untouched terrain as the backdrop, guests camp along 22.5 acres of wooded hills in their own tent or a deluxe cottage that can accommodate a family of five. Nearby, they can take in whizzing views of the countryside from the 300-foot zipline or take their time while strolling their way through the onsite golf course. When not lounging by the pool or playing horseshoes next to horses playing humanshoes, guests venture to one of more than 20 nearby attractions such as Gillette Castle State Park or the historical Mystic Seaport. Back at the campsite, kids keep their hands busy with scheduled kids' crafts and their faces sticky during pie-eating contests.:m]]

Wheeling City Tours, LLC, a short walk from the ferry and train, explores New London's streets at the speed of Segway. As groups zoom through the city donning hands-free radios worn around necks, the knowledgable guides narrate facts about the town, tales from its history, and tips on some of the best spots to grab a bite or visit. During their one-hour tour, the guides lead groups through downtown to peep Waterfront Park and Fort Trumbull, puttering along the Thames River and Long Island Sound for breath-taking views. Their two-hour excursion follows a similar route, but also introduces riders to views of scenic marinas, beaches, the New London Harbor Light lighthouse, and the Pequot Colony neighborhood, ending in a visit to Ocean Beach Park and a glide down the boardwalk. To commemorate the journey, guides snap photos throughout and forward them along to tour-goers.

And those who haven't ever ridden a Segway need not fear. Before setting out on a tour, the guides lead a thorough training in Segway maneuvering and safety, and promise that each Segway is gentle and has been properly broken.
