Cut through thick forests in the heart of White Haven, Stone Meadows Golf Course presents visitors with a tree-framed layout that weaves around links-style mounds and bunkers. The course brings water into play on a handful of holes, and multiple sharp dog legs lie in wait to challenge even the most skilled golfers. But competitors at Stone Meadows don't necessarily have to use clubs or slingshots to move balls across the course?they can use their feet, too. The relatively short length of 5,210 yards from the tips makes the course a perfect fit for footgolf, a hybrid of soccer and golf in which players aim to kick a soccer ball into cups in as few shots as possible.

The trained and certified driving instructors at Racing Box instill their passion for motorsports in people through patient, thorough driving instruction. They teach visitors to properly control the muscle of international supercars such as the Ferrari F430 F1, Lamborghini Gallardo, and Aston Martin, as well as Formula 1 racecars, at four driving circuits across the country. Driver and instructor swap seats and friendship bracelets during each session, mixing observational learning with hands-on driving time on racetracks measuring up to 2.5 miles in length.
The 483-horsepower V8 engine roars in front of you as you shift gears, and the speedometer climbs over 150 miles per hour. Gliding down the straightaway, you grip the wheel of a Ferrari F430. You don't need to buy your own exotic car to experience this adrenaline rush: American Racing Experience connects visitors with a similar emprise on four major raceways across the United States. At scheduled times at the Motorspeedway in Atlanta, Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania, Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia, and Adams Mortorsports Park in Los Angeles, they brief drivers on the handling and controls of sleek Ferraris and V10 engine-powered, six-speed Lamborghini Gallardos. After preparing visitors for the upcoming track with a lap in a pace car, instructors slip into the passenger seat—letting their guests take the wheel for a driving experience more extreme than some TV show set on an island.
Just as the Louvre refuses to update the Mona Lisa, Signature Car Collection's fleet of luxury vehicles sticks to the proven European classics. The badges of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, and Bentley adorn the hoods of the stylish rides, all of which are available to rent for weddings or special occasions. Occasionally, the cars also roll out onto professional raceways to give amateur drivers a chance to experience the thrill of accelerating down the straightaway knowing that a family of turtles could need to cross at any moment.
Helmed by 23-year PGA vet Scot W.R. Nei, TourBound Golf Academy hones the skills of golfers of all levels with a blend of professional training and high-tech analysis. In addition to learning from extensively experienced human trainers, students study under the cold, metal gaze of a training robot, which mercifully sets its kill-phasers to the "teach" setting as it offers up exact movement measurements and mechanically guided golf-swing practice. An indoor and outdoor facility hosts lessons in all weather, and TrackMan ball-flight trackers and digital-video scrutiny pinpoint improper postures and map out spheroid trajectories with computerized precision.
