Belvedere Golf Club, named one of the state's top 20 courses by GolfLink, eases the jonesings of club swingers seven days a week with its Bermuda fairways and bentgrass greens. Lush, sloping hills and stately trees surround the course, a 1949 brainchild of Hall of Fame designer Herman Hackbarth, who took care to swath each shapely dogleg in the finest of canine pantyhose. Whizzing hither and yon in electric golf carts less than two years old, players can take on pastoral obstacles such as greenside bunkers, water hazards, and squads of guerilla hobbits. From the tips, the course measures 6,767 yards, with a par of 72, course rating of 73.1, and film rating of PG-13 for some strong language near the woods and sand traps.

Glenwood Country Club challenges golfers with a recently renovated par 72 course before rewarding them with a newly furnished lodge situated amid rolling woodland. Stands of native hardwood and pine tower over 6,561 yards of bent-grass greens and bermuda-grass fairways, whose steep inclines demand more spin control than the tazmanian devil's presidential campaign. Orbs launch from tees cached in narrow chutes and triumphantly storm the peninsula that protects the course's signature par 3 hole. Players can leave the ponds, rock formations, and herds of wild caddies roving the verdant links to practice swings on the driving range.

Thanks to The Gauntlet, butterflies fill visitors' stomachs long before they even enter Magic Springs and Crystal Falls Water and Theme Park. The coaster looms high over the parking lot—forming a bright yellow web out of some 2,200 feet of steel track. Then, shrieks echo as riders plunge down a 110-foot drop and rocket through five inverted loops before finally planting their feet back on solid ground. And that's just the beginning.

Sprawling across the grounds are dozens of other attractions that cater to all levels of thrill-seeker. While the X-Coaster dangles riders and inspires avant-garde hair styles with its slowed-down loop, the family-friendly Big Bad John takes others on a runaway train ride through the forest. Elsewhere, a kiddie airplane ride and a carousel delight tiny visitors, and everyone can break to eat at the Lakeside Ice Cream Parlor.

Kiddie Mia's Family Fun Center entertains children of all ages in two joy-filled facilities. High ceilings loom jealously above the bright blue floors where games twinkle happily. One building houses the center's coin-operated arcade, which rewards youngsters with tickets that, unlike an armored piñata, actually yield prizes. Alongside the redemption games, families can quell appetites with pizzas, burgers, and a spaghetti buffet, all awaiting charged up maws at the onsite snack bar. In the adjacent all-you-can-play game room, dozens of kiddie rides occupy young children, who can scamper between Disney-themed attractions such as Mickey's truck and Barney's tractor as parents shout parallel-parking instructions from nearby red and blue picnic tables. Older kids can blast computerized foes on a number of arcade games or coordinate hands and eyes with turns at basketball hoops or air-hockey tables.

Typically, when someone walks into a restaurant and leaves with a piece of artwork it's a misdemeanor. But at café @ artspace it's not just legal, but encouraged—as long as you pay for it. Since the café is attached to artspace—a hub for art exhibitions, poetry readings, and live concerts—there's always a selection of original artworks by regional artists on hand in the gift shop. These creations occupy diners as they wait for one of the café's golf-themed sandwiches or housemade desserts, which they can order from the menu or a chalkboard scrawled with the day's specials. Meals may be prepared to go or enjoyed in the café, where free WiFi allows diners to tweet photos of their silverware.
