You also get eight hours of cropping time (a $15 value), meaning you can come in and use all the non-consumable tools in the scrapbooking lab without having to invest in expensive equipment. You can schedule the crop whenever you want, but it can't be split between multiple days.

An 18-hole executive layout, Greenfield Lakes Golf Course invites linksfolk of all abilities with a fun, 4,107-yard design that runs alongside glassy waters. With 12 par 3s, four par 4s, and a pair of par 5s, the course requires golfers to unsheathe every wedge, iron, wood, and cricket bat in their bag at some point in the round. Pin-hunting odysseys end with dramatic flair at the par 5 18th hole, a 530-yard behemoth where a double dog-leg fairway and a green buttressed by a right-side pond make golfers finish their round with a perplexing high-risk, high-reward course management decision. Before taking to the tee or after a disappointing round, guests can mosey to the practice range—which includes a lighted driving range and a short game area with a practice bunker—to hone their skills without having to mow their basement’s shag carpet into an indoor course.
Descending from three generations of dairy farmers, siblings Casey and Alison Stechnij carry on their family's legacy by maintaining Superstition Farm's 30 acres. The brother-and-sister duo regularly shepherd informative tours through the landscape, summoning horses, chickens, goats, and sheep to greet guests and share their perspectives. The four-legged residents also assist in horseback riding lessons and appearances at the onsite petting zoo.
Every Thursday, local food trucks flock to Superstition Farm for a weekly market, where they vend fresh produce, breads, and meats alongside the farm's own dairy products, including the house-made Udder Delights brand of ice cream and artisanal cheeses. Superstition Farm further disseminates its farm-fresh cuisine via a 30-foot-long food truck that makes appearances at local events and defends cattle against the persistent threat of monster trucks.
A kaleidoscope of multichromatic blossoms and emerald leaves bursts from the soil, blanketing 65 acres of desert landscape at Desert Botanical Garden. Diverse walkways flanked by more than 50,000 types of cacti, succulents, and wildflowers educate visitors on the importance of protecting the environment and not hugging every plant they see. In addition to the garden's more stationary organisms, some of which go home with local green thumbs during biannual plant sales, numerous avian and insect species make their homes amid the thriving greenery.
