Tires squeal and a 15-horsepower engine hums as its driver cuts through a narrow turn, shaving fractions of a second off the lap. Below the track, a colorful golf ball winds through faux island trees, avoiding walls and stops on its way to an awaiting hole. It's another day at Tri-State Speedway, a multileveled family entertainment center littered with motorized fun for patrons of any age. The upstairs, 22,000-square-foot go-kart track hosts competitive races with karts calibrated for speeds of up to 25 miles per hour. A walk downstairs leads to the island-themed, 18-hole mini-golf course nestled among a large video-game arcade, bowling lanes, bumper cars, and billiard tables. When fun gives way to hunger, Drafters Sports Cafe's servers and cooks serve finger-friendly pub bites, ice-cold beer, and paper napkins fashioned from losing basketball brackets.
For three generations, Christmas trees perfumed the grounds at Leyden Farm & Winery. In 2010, though, the Leyden family became interested in fruit-essence wines and planted strawberries, blueberries, and grapevines amidst the trees, becoming partners with a love for farming and wine. The fruit from the trees they grew eventually became red wines such as Romeo's Red and Samson's Merlot, white wines such as Cleo's Blanc and Sunny's Grigio, or fruit varieties such as Apple Jack Russell or Samson's Wild Berry. Today, visitors to the sixty-acre family farm can enjoy bites of fruit and cheese complemented by tastes of smooth, complex merlot; crisp white wine laced with green apple; or a blush wine infused with fresh-watermelon essence.

At Woodwind Farm, riders bolster their horseback-riding acumen with lessons on the art of dressage, which seeks to help horses reach their full athletic potential, teaching them to respond to situations with minimum provocation. The facility's experienced staff trains all horses in classical dressage, schooling them regularly so they don't forget how to do long division. During 45-minute lessons, instructors pair riders with a suitable horse and then take to the trails of the verdant surrounding countryside.
