Featured on Central PA magazine’s 2010 Hot List for Best Leisure Options, The State Museum lays out a telescopic view of the Commonwealth's history throughout its four-story building. Visitors are welcomed by the colossal figure of William Penn, flash-frozen in bronze and captured in his life-like 18-foot majesty. The statue stands flanked by cunning facsimiles of a Pennsylvania past and backed by the museum's featured exhibit, currently Wood on Glass, a photographic history and lecture series on the lumber industry. The second floor recreates a Native American village and unrolls the carpet of history from the Civil War through the Industrial Revolution and beyond. The final level delves thousands of years into the past when the eons-old Marshalls Creek Mastodon lumbered across the Pennsylvanian plains and starred in two MTV reality shows—see the 12,000-year-old, 20-foot skeleton when its exhibit opens on Sunday, February 27.

Situated on the historic, picturesque William Penn land-grant settlement, Valley Green's verdant fairways, manicured greens, and tree-lined rolling hills have visually regaled golfers for nearly five decades. The classic northeast-style par 71 golf course unfolds across 6,300 yards, and keeps par pursuers on their toes with water hazards, sand traps, and geysers disguised as holes. Flit about the golfscape in style in one of the course's carts, and practice your long game in bucket-long increments at the driving range.

Twin Ponds East?one of the Twin Ponds family rec center's two complexes?lies on the same location of an old farm and its ponds, where Mr. Patton and his brothers used to play ice hockey. Today, its two indoor ice rinks keep games going year-round, even when most hockey players migrate to Antarctica for the summer.

Twin Ponds West adds even more places to skate, including an NHL standard size rink, though hockey isn't the only thing on visitors' agendas. The rinks welcome figure skaters as well as the general public, who can also take classes to help them navigate the ice with ease. Additionally, Twin Ponds West provides space for other sports, including baseball, lacrosse, field hockey, and soccer on an indoor turf field.

Every Friday and Saturday night, the lights at all three ABC Lanes locations go dark. In their place, disco, black, and laser lights illuminate lanes. The change of scenery announces the start of cosmic bowling, whose glow-in-the-dark games, played against a pulsating soundtrack, last until 2 a.m.

The rest of the week, open bowling sessions, league games, and tournaments unfold on the lanes, which total up to 46 at ABC's Mechanicsburg location. A smoke-free establishment, ABC Lanes can even accommodate junior bowlers with plenty of bumper lanes. Before and after games at all three locations, guests can update their gear at the pro shop or kick back with draft beers in the lounge.
