Even though it was built as a filling station in 1931, The Pumphouse made the wise decision to swap out gasoline for pub-style American cuisine ranging from housemade fries and club sandwiches to three different kinds of chicken wings. Its kitchen also whips up signature 8-ounce burgers topped with bacon, chili, cheese, and rings of jalapeño, whose heat can be mitigated by ice-cold drafts of Boulevard Pale Ale. A vintage "lubrication service" sign hangs over the bar as a cheeky nod to the building's past, which is also represented by vintage pumps, cinderblock walls, glass garage doors, and other automotive ephemera.

Founded in 1994, Hickory Creek Ranch immerses riders and horses in an idyllic natural landscape, further solidifying the bond between man and animal on the trails and pastures. During trail rides, visitors set off across more than 40 acres of grassy pasture in the early morning or early evening—the time when the sun streaks brilliant colors across the sky, fauna roam the woods, and horses won't miss their favorite mounted-police show, CLOPS. After setting out, steeds meander through regions of dense forest home to wild flowers and trees as well as blue heron, red-tailed hawks, and wild turkey. Along the route, white-tailed deer may even bound across the fields as frogs croak improvised jazz melodies at the pond.

Back at the ranch, students of all experience levels learn horsemanship or improve their skills with private and group lessons or summer camps. Collectively, the trainers and instructors at Hickory Creek have amassed more than 30 years of teaching, showing, and breeding experience—a pedigree that has spawned numerous regional and national champions from past protégés.
