Golfers of all skill levels can swing the day away on the well-manicure greens at Osawatomie Golf Course, where an 18-hole, par 71 course unfurls with rolling fairways, verdant flora, and clear ponds. While attempting to overcome the course's lush, challenging topography, players can rove over pastures in their provided golf carts, the ideal mode of transportation to the snack bar, the driving range, or a forgotten dentist's appointment. After dotting the course with a series of complicated divots, golfers can refuel their energy at the snack bar with a choice of hamburger, cheeseburger, polish sausage, or hot dog, each served with a side of chips and a soft drink.

The horses at Stepping Stone Ranch may as well be wearing plush bathrobes. At the full-care boarding facility, denizens enjoy such luxurious amenities as heated stalls—where automatic fly-spray systems keep their manes free from airborne pests—and 24-hour access to a 35-acre pasture, where they can gallop freely under the sun or channel the spirit of Secretariat in midnight séances. Stepping Stone Ranch's commitment to compassionate horse care ensures that equines will be in good spirits for riding lessons, during which clients learn from dressage enthusiast Vera Gannaway. Gannaway's lessons teach riders to find their balance in the saddle, develop soft hands on the reins, and calm bucking steeds by letting them get the Batman toy that the big boys have. In addition, Vera covers the basics of equestrian care in group horse-training classes, which prepare pupils to own and squire their own horses.

Nestled upon a patch of land that's passed through the hands of five generations, The Lessman Farm owes much to its current paterfamilias, Ronald Lessman, who began drawing in sightseers and visitors with his catfish pond, self-built house, and otherworldly sculpture gardens. Guests walk the shores or ply the waves of the 30-acre catfish lake, casting for regularly stocked populations of bass, perch, and crappie as they take in the majestic scenery of the rustic prairie. But what draws the most attention from visitors is Truckhenge, an arrangement of half-buried torpedo trucks, mysteriously lifting their engines skywards in what appears to be an industrial-age interpretation of Stonehenge. The Lessmans' outdoor installation is folk art on a monumental scale, proudly flaunting its offbeat flavor and inspiring visitors to express themselves without hesitation or apology or to bury themselves waist-deep in the ground at a 45-degree angle. A healthy respect for individualism and the avant-garde prevails throughout the property, with other attractions drawing attention from tourists, such as the enormous quonset hut farmhouse handmade from recycled materials or the huge beer-bottle glass wall mosaic.

Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 500 calories with each go-round.
