Bailey Links Golf Course at Cedar Hills' recently redesigned nine-hole course provides a grassy haunt for golfers of all stripes and an emerald training ground for pupils learning at the spike-soled feet of the club's PGA-certified golf guru, Keith McElroy. With a nine-hole round, players can hunt birdies across a player-friendly layout in expedited fashion, freeing up time to read their nine-irons bedtime stories later that night. Duffers can continue their path to on-course mastery at the complex's driving range, where practice balls help players commit new techniques to memory while whispering sage advice such as how to differentiate between expansive sand traps and makeshift nude beaches. Players can loop the links in a peppy golf cart or traverse the fairway chain aboard their trusty footmobile.
Behind the red-brick walls of Knoxville Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Jessica Howard deflects stress with relaxing Swedish techniques. These smooth, gentle kneads allow sinews to uncoil and the body's energy to flow freely. To get tight limbs moving again, Jessica applies concentrated deep-tissue techniques and hot towels. She also offers aromatherapy—soothing smells that ease mental tension because nostrils are basically the brain's ears.
With more than 30 years of kid-entertaining experience, The Little Gym provides a safe and noncompetitive environment wherein wee ones and maturing moppets can exercise their brains and bodies. Visiting youngsters glean social, intellectual, and emotional skills from the facility's professionally developed parent/child program at both facilities. The program features diverse activities in gymnastics, dance, sports, and parent-child yodeling for mountain-echoing communication more effective than a squeal. Kids can enjoy programs in gymnastics that cater to differing ages, levels of muscle development, and hatred of vegetables. Each session's hands-on activities keep the indefatigable energy motors of little tikes revving, facilitate bonding, and boost listening skills, attention spans, and confidence. Check the complete class schedule for Knoxville and Farragut to confirm times.
Howard Farms fills brisk afternoons with a cornucopia of autumn activities, including the Big Piney corn maze and freshly-blazed haunted trail. Navigators consult a map as they meander through 8 acres of maize, answering trivia questions that point correct patrons toward freedom and lure unsure visitors and disoriented mailmen deeper into dense stalk jungles. Specters patrol the maze after dark October 22–31, when 8 years and older can tiptoe through haunted pathways from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Meanwhile, screams ring out from the Haunted Trail's half-mile route, which steers thrill-seekers into forest foliage spookier than the ghost of a recently eaten sandwich. Hitch a ride on the Farm Store's hay wagon to the trail's mouth, which opens into a woodland of harrowing sights and sounds.

What makes your business stand out?
Golden Era Motors is a one-of-a-kind business that allows its clients the opportunity to drive and experience classic muscle cars. Our clients get to skip the high price tag and demanding time requirements inherent in owning classic cars and cut straight to the best part: driving them! Our clients are a diverse group: some are 25-year-old adrenaline junkies, others drive our cars as a "bucket list" item, and some are simply nostalgic [and] looking to reconnect with some exceptional examples of "American Muscle."
What inspired you
After years of enjoying my own classic cars, I started this business to share the pride and exhilaration that comes with driving them. Years of observation at car shows and "cruise-ins" revealed many in attendance did not actually own vehicles themselves, yet they had a fond appreciation for them. Golden Era Motors (GEM) allows those same fans a taste of what it's like to be in the game rather than on the sidelines. We want our clients to touch and interact with our classic muscle cars.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
The fringe benefits are tough to argue with! [I love] "test driving" and maintaining the collection.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We own all of the cars in our collection, and therefore you can be sure they have been properly maintained. We do not rent cars on behalf of private owners or play photography mind games with you. Every photo you see on our website was taken of an actual GEM car.
