Licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration, Shenandoah Flying Adventures leads students skyward through training options that range from introductory flights to full pilot-certification programs. The squadron's 60-minute Discovery flight gives aeronautical novices a feel for all that flying entails, beginning with a lesson and preflight aircraft inspection and culminating with the student's taking control of the plane as a certified instructor looks on. The program offers a way for curious cloud-gazers to give flying a try without committing to all the resources necessary to earning a pilot's license, such as changing your first name to Captain. Should students wish to pursue aerial studies further, the time spent aloft can contribute to a full certification, which Shenandoah Flying Adventures offers among its slate of courses.:m]]
A native of Augusta County who knows its wildlife and terrain, Dwight Wood recreates a simpler time—a time when cowboys rode horses up the mountain trails, ate steaks seared by the campfire, and jumped into a hot tub before going to bed. Granted, that last part is only available if you stay overnight at the bunkhouse, but the Wood family's horseback-riding trips are otherwise historically authentic.
Riders meet at 9 a.m. on the ranch, where they're paired up with a trusty and well-trained steed before trotting out into the wilderness of George Washington National Forest. Dwight guides the trip over water, up slight inclines, and past breathtaking views of mountain country, leading the pack to some of the highest points in the region without the help of cliff-side escalators. He also keeps each trip small in order to better answer questions and provide a personalized experience for each rider. Guests can saddle up for a half-day, full-day, or overnight excursion, and look forward to a cowboy-style supper on longer trips.

As a professional golf instructor, Leslie W. Mercer worked tirelessly to make the game accessible to everyone. His daughter, Anne Marie, opened The Highlands Golf Park in 1997 to ensure her father's efforts–and more importantly, perhaps, his love of golf–made an impact on future generations. To this day, The Highlands remains a family affair. Anne Marie's daughter, Gretchen Scheuermann, now runs the park and guides golfers as a LPGA Class A teaching professional.
The Highlands Golf Park provides a robust golfing experience to match its rich history. A versatile driving range is the centerpiece of the facility's practice features. Carved into the natural landscape, the range boasts 44 grass and mat tee stations, areas for pitching and chipping, and lights for practicing at night or after accidentally popping the sun with an errant tee shot. Away from the range, players can soak up tips during lessons or polish up their short game by putting through the 18-hole Pirate Pete's Mini Golf Course.
