When Ken Goodman survived a car wreck at age 4, his parents feared that his nearly severed tongue would never speak again. After a complicated surgery and months of healing, they found he could not only speak but sing. Years later, he nabbed lead roles in musical-theater classics such as Bye Bye Birdie and The Music Man. His lengthy list of performances also includes operas, pageants, and a concert for the Austrian ambassador to the United States. These days, Ken flaunts his melodious vocals at the Vienna Theatre, the 75-seat performance space he owns with his wife, Stephanie. Here, he adds his tuneful spin to renditions of Broadway standards and folk duets with humming radiators. Nestled within the century-old Simon Mendel building, the theater is one of the few structures to survive the fire of 1928 and the man versus building tickle war of 1987.

Glenwood Country Club challenges golfers with a recently renovated par 72 course before rewarding them with a newly furnished lodge situated amid rolling woodland. Stands of native hardwood and pine tower over 6,561 yards of bent-grass greens and bermuda-grass fairways, whose steep inclines demand more spin control than the tazmanian devil's presidential campaign. Orbs launch from tees cached in narrow chutes and triumphantly storm the peninsula that protects the course's signature par 3 hole. Players can leave the ponds, rock formations, and herds of wild caddies roving the verdant links to practice swings on the driving range.
