In 1880, Justin P. White created candlepin bowling because he felt that traditional bowling wasn't challenging enough. Today, Leda Lanes continues this East Coast tradition, where bowlers clutch softball-sized balls before sending them down the lane toward tall, thin pins. Though the game is a throwback, the staff keeps things modern with state-of-the-art scoring systems at each lane. A concession stand provides snacks, while Kegler's Den Lounge provides libations to keep bowlers going till the next string.
Though the image of an arrow pulled taut may be evocative of a hunter stalking prey, archery is a sport open to anyone, including nonhunters, children, and nursing-home residents.

Students also learn about the characteristics of arrow flight, allowing them to predict an arrow's path with greater accuracy.
