Newly inducted divers can gear up with Start Skydiving’s online store, which carries everything from altimeters and flight-specific shirts to tickets for rides on hot-air balloons or twin-engine pterodactyls.

Forest Hills Country Club invites golfers of all skill levels to drive, chip, and putt their way around its private nine-hole course, buttressed by the Great Miami River and native forestation. The course measures 2,267 yards from the back tees and boasts five par 3s and four par 4s. Though it may not have any par 5s, Forest Hills makes up for distance in scoring difficulty, with just one par 3 measuring fewer than 150 yards and cups that sneeze every time a ball comes near them. After a round, players can visit the concession stand to replenish calories lost from swinging clubs or cartwheeling from hole to hole.

“There’s something for everybody here and if there isn’t, we’ll make it.”

With Lisa Little's approach to DIY art, as she tells Middletown Journal, no one gets left out at one of her pottery-painting parties. Visitors to The Splattered Platter are treated to Lisa's diverse ceramic collection, which includes more than 500 decorative and functional pieces—including bowls, plates, and figurines—with each matte-white porcelain surface awaiting decoration. 

The decorating tools are all-inclusive as well. Crayons accommodate younger hands, and paintbrushes on canvases suit the finer motor skills of older artists. These seasoned crafters can also drop in for Lisa's in-depth project classes, which tackle trickier subjects, such as topping a wrought-iron table in mosaic or knitting leg warmers for a millipede.
