Sunday-morning visits to the grocery store are vastly improved by samples of toothpicked sausage bites and tiny cups of squash soup. Humanity's mysterious love affair with trial-sized morsels is in full effect with today's deal: for $20, you get access to one walking food tour of the Strip District from 'Burgh Bits & Bites, a $38 value (including tax and service fees). Tours meet at the Old St. Patrick's Church courtyard and depart at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays. Call ahead and namedrop your Groupon to reserve your spot on a tour.
Evelyn and Neill Andritz grew up near the banks of the Kiskiminetas River and quickly became enamored with its wildlife and natural beauty. Wanting to share this passion with others, they founded The River?s Edge, where fleets of kayaks, canoes, and tubes send groups on aquatic journeys into nature.
As watercraft meander down the river, they pass the habitats of local wildlife including deer, bald eagles, geese, and feral former child stars. Alternatively, rental bicycles facilitate on-land adventures, and two primitive campsites let visitors sleep along the river's bank.
Inside The River?s Edge's shop, friendly staff members help customers to purchase kayaks and aquatic gear, or choose the best bait and tackle to catch schools of fish crackers. They also add a touch of nature to homes at a garden center.

The Shadows Haunted Attraction lives up to its spooky moniker by sending groups off a half-mile of pitch-black woodland. Utilizing the natural creepiness of its surroundings, this haunted attraction is different from others that rely on elaborate sets, mood lighting, and shoeshine stations run by Frankenstein to impress their guests.
Rustling leaves and sounds with indiscernible sources echo in the darkness, and creatures lie in wait for unsuspecting passersby. Afterward, visitors can calm their rattled nerves around a large roaring bonfire.
