After 13 years as a skydiver, Joseph Johnson leapt into a new mission: to become the first franchised skydiving operation in the country. With two locations in two states under his belt so far, he aims to rise above his competitors by offering distinctive features such as a choice of altitudes (13,000, 18,000, or 24,000 feet) and pre-jump training that equips skydivers with the ability to deploy, steer, and land their own chute, even when they?re flying tandem with a licensed instructor. Planes can carry as many as 17 people in one trip, making it ideal for group outings and airborne performances by jazz orchestras, and helmet cams capture the audio and visuals of the entire flight.

A community staple since 1955, Glencoe Country Club?a combination of old school and modern golf course design, created to challenge all abilities of golfers?weaves through trees and waterways to form an 18-hole, par 71 layout. Rated as the hardest hole on the course, the fourth hole puts golfers at the mercy of all of the course's obstacles at once: trees and sandtraps straddle the landing zone for tee shots, and two ponds?one behind, one on the left side of the hole?protect the green from invading drives and vikings that can't swim. Before rounds, golfers can prepare at the driving range or by grabbing some new gear at the pro shop. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 71 course Length of 6,094 yards from the tips Course rating of 68.5 from the tips Slope rating of 129 from the tips Four tee options Scorecard

Shadowbrooke Golf Course weaves through the Minnesota countryside to form a scenic par 71 layout envisioned by architect Joel Goldstrand, whose designs are sculpted throughout the state. The course eases golfers into the round on the older and more forgiving front nine, letting swings find their stride before a more treacherous second act that winds through tunnels of mature trees. Shadowbrooke's pro shop keeps hot dogs, candy, and drinks on hand for hungry golfers, as well as gloves, apparel, and balls for those who fear they may not be able to keep every shot in play or prevent their orbs from being smuggled away by a local juggler. Shadowbrooke Golf Course's rates fluctuate during the day and throughout the week.

The Minnesota Saddlebred Horse Association unites stables across the state, showcasing the diversity of the american saddlebred, as well as training future equestrians with individually tailored riding lessons. After arriving in long pants and sturdy, low-heel shoes, riders don helmets as instructors commence half-hour equine adventures to acquaint students with an agreeable saddlebred, whose manner and relaxed gait are perfect for human accompaniment and a marked advantage in "act casual" situations. The average lesson covers mounting and dismounting, walking and trotting, rein control, and how to properly engage with the horse. In addition, riders will spend time learning how horses think and react in common situations. The MSHA's participating stables open on evenings and weekends for man-to-beast interactions after school or work; customers should note that Lear Stables in Hastings is not heated.

Nearly a decade ago, Rich Pawelk and his wife Terri Traen planted 300 apple trees on their 155-acre property, thus starting LuceLine Orchard. Since then, the land's harvest has grown to include seven varieties of apples, plus pumpkins, squash, and six acres of grape vineyards. But the rolling hills and produce-filled fields were too much for Rich and Terri to enjoy by themselves, so they decided to share their land with the community. People can explore the orchard?s trails by foot, bike, horse, or hovercraft, and take along binoculars for bird-watching stops. The orchard?s ?Mess Hall? cooks up Minnesota-made brats, burgers, hot and dogs cut in apple cider, as well as housemade apple slaw. Pumpkins of all sizes and apples plucked from the land transform into pies that customers can bring with them when they leave. After their food fix, guests can wander over towards the corn maze, petting zoo, kiddie train rides, and hay mountain.
