Safety-certified guides lead their human-powered flotillas on tours down meandering paths of natural wonder, educating paddlers about the local wildlife and riparian ecology of the Evansville area. Pleasure-seeking pairs can escape the stresses of the city without traveling far, as the tour’s waterways pump aquatic lifeblood straight through the heart of Evansville and serve as a wildlife oasis. Intimate groups of six or Troy-bound armies of up to 28 can take to the gentle currents on a daytime tour highlighting Pigeon Creek’s wildlife, from its majestic birds and waterfowl to its feral psychic Pokémon. Moonlight paddles highlight the area’s active nocturnal ecology, with tours at Hovey Lake weaving through a half-submerged forest of bald cypress trees and trips through the Blue Grass Fish and Wildlife Area offering a glimpse into Loon Pit, a designated nesting area and asylum for deranged waterfowl.

At the heart of Ennis Horsemanship Center is David and Jill Ennis, a married couple with a shared passion for the majestic nature of horses. Before moving to Chandler in 2010, David and Jill ran a successful stable in Missouri—the very place where David happened to also propose to Jill, inside the riding arena. Today, the Ennises and their roster of award-winning school horses provide training, education, and riding lessons that accommodate kids and adults. These lessons emphasize becoming a total “horseperson,” meaning students not only learn how to ride a horse, but also how to care for it to and teach it how to neigh orders at drive-thru windows. To make their services even more accessible to the community, David and Jill have also registered their facility as part of the Horses4Heroes network.

The gauntlet of ramps, windmill blades, and dastardly drawbridges at Midget Links Golf has been challenging players for more than half a century. Originally opened in 1947, the 18-hole course is most famously known for the goldfish-filled, 1,500-gallon aquarium that serves as the focal point of the course’s circular layout. Other noteworthy course features include the unofficial 19th hole, which gives players the chance to win free rounds, prizes, and the polite applause of onlooking goldfish. With so much history embedded in its greens, Miget Links Golf even plays host to the annual Indiana State Open, a tour event for the putt-putt pros of the United States Miniature Golf Association.

Load up into new Club Car Precedent carts for a tour around the 18-hole course, dubbed the Thunder course. As players make their way along the 18-hole loop, they can take scoring advantage of the numerous short par 4s, but must demonstrate control on the par 3s if they want to post a low score.

18-Hole Course at a Glance:

  • Par 70
  • Length of 6,145 yards from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole

Skate World offers a family-friendly venue for active adults and equally restless kids to spend a day swiftly circling a smooth, polished rink. Speedy swivelers can strap on their choice of regular, speed, or inline skates, and take the floor with siblings, friends, or first dates, wondering whether or not to quote Xanadu. Post-skate, tired gliders can rest weary feet and refuel internal engines with a slice of pizza and cold drink from the snack bar. A healthy form of exercise for all ages, roller-skating can help languid loafers get back on their feet and remind them what it feels like to wear shoes again.
