Farms may not sprout candy bars, but a candy bar produced Milky Way Farm. The sprawl of fertile, Middle Tennessee land was bought by Frank Mars in the 1930s, with money from his Milky Way candy bar. In the decades since then, the farm's 1,000 acres have supported a menagerie of prize Hereford cattle, horses, and sheep, as well as an elegant Tudor manor house currently on the National Historic Registry. Its chestnut beams and stone walls make it a sumptuous wedding venue, while its 20 bedrooms make it a great slumber-party venue for a teen and her least-close friends. The
farm plays host to other types of fun, too, from senior portrait shoots to trail rides through its verdant grounds.
At Mid Tenn Motorcycle Education Center, nationally certified instructors impart the secrets to safe and street-legal riding.

More advanced students can dip into one-day, six-hour experienced-rider courses to practice precision handling, advanced braking, and dodging squirrels. The school also hosts women-only classes that teach terminology and skills free of testosterone-induced wheelie popping.
