A group of former preschool teachers banded together to create Explore & More Hands-On Children's Museum, a space designed to engage visitors—specifically, those between the ages of 2 and 8—with educational play. Located in a vintage 1860s house, the museum consists of seven themed rooms. Guests can glimpse into the past by entering the 1860s room, which houses a historical general store, or learn about hermit crabs, frogs, and other creatures in the nature area. Children experience the power of magnets first-hand in the exploration room, where they can also stand inside a giant soap bubble.

At Allstar Family Amusement Complex, Go-karts race around a circular track or hug the twists and turns of a grand prix?style course. Lasers zip throughout a 4,000-square-foot black-lit laser-tag arena, and blips and bleeps sound from an arcade complete with a potpourri of video and redemption games. Towering windmills don't obstruct holes in one on Allstar Family Amusement Complex's two 18-hole miniature golf courses. Instead, babbling brooks and verdant trees surround natural obstacles such as sharp turns and rock patterns. Mini golf is one of many attractions encompassed on the year-round fun park.

Two 18-hole mini golf courses at Mulligan MacDuffer elevate miniature golf to another level. Four acres of lush countryside provide a pleasant framework for rounds, which meander over undulating greens, duck into caves, and wind past trickling streams and waterfalls that whisper green-reading tips if you listen close enough. After the final putt is sunk, Mulligan's old-fashioned ice cream parlor punctuates outings with hand-dipped cones, ice cream sodas, and milk shakes.

The paranormal investigators and tour guides of After Dark Investigations specialize in small-group tours that provide customers with hands-on experience and equipment. Ghost tourists utilize EMF detectors, dowsing rods, and infrared-video cameras to capture any potential appearance of apparitions. The tours stretch to locations such as cemeteries or abandoned amusement parks near the location of the Battle of Gettysburg.

Today, she owns an art studio profiled by Fox 43 and magazines, but in 2011, Stacey McConnell just wanted to make friends. She had just moved to New Freedom from New Orleans and didn't know anyone yet. Stacey's brainstorming—and her outgoing nature—led her to consider BYOB paint parties; eventually, this train of thought carried her all the way through the creation of her very own studio. There, art lovers from all walks of life hold a glass in one hand and a paintbrush in the other as an instructor guides them through the creation of an easy-to-follow image. But BYOB paint parties aren't the only events filling A Splash of Art's agenda. In addition to being available for private events, the studio is mobile: staff members pack up paints to pay house calls, and wineries host painting events that supply their varietals to visiting canvas smearers.
