Following a mission to educate guests on preservation and environmental responsibility, Bear Den Zoo provides a safe, caring home for a wide range of farm animals and exotic species. Black bears, ring-tailed lemurs, giant tortoises, and exotic pheasants play and preen inside constructed habitats as guests look on from a safe distance, observing their mannerisms and learning to convincingly imitate them. In addition to providing guests with information on each animal, the zookeepers coordinate hands-on demonstrations that allow guests to interact with more social animals.
During the fall, the zoo opens its surrounding trails for evening hayrides and late-night adventures in the haunted woods. Tiki torches guide the way, and various ghosts and goblins spook guests amid the roars of nocturnal wildcats lamenting the lack of a reliable Internet connection in their cages.

Skydive Milwaukee's tandem jump eschews lengthy ground tutorials by condensing them into an instructional video and a briefing from an experienced instructor—allowing adrenaline junkies to quickly get their weekend fix after five straight days of working customer service at the bunk-bed factory. Once the subtle complexities of jumping out of a plane into 14,500 feet of vertiginous void have been dispensed with, you'll be ready for your dual-person dive into glory. After an initial burst of terror, you'll find yourself hovering in what Wilbur Wright called a "perfect peace mingled with an excitement that strains every nerve to the utmost" for about 50 seconds of freefall. It feels like you're moving down a cushion of air. And since you're in front of the instructor with your own altimeter and ripcord, it feels like you're skydiving on your own. After the plunge awakens the sleeping lion deep in your heart and gets it roaring through your mouth, you'll have five minutes of gentle parachute-assisted descent to take in the majesty and beauty of the skies—or, if you'd rather, crack snarky jokes about the nearby flock of pudgy seagulls.

Towering oaks and spectacular willow trees frame Oak Hills Golf Club’s nine-hole course, standing guard as clubbers traverse the 1,845-yard, par 31 course. The relatively short layout features bunker-fortified greens, water hazards on four holes, and an elaborate system of sprinklers programmed to activate during golfers’ backswings. With no par 5's and only one hole longer than 300 yards, the course enables golfers to feasibly reach the green off the tee on eight different holes.
At the Club’s pro shop, players can peruse a wide selection of clubs with which to upgrade their old set of modified crowbars, and the 250-yard driving range offers a venue for players to test out new equipment or improve imbalanced swings. After a long day of tracing drives into the ether, golfers can retreat to The Back Nine Restaurant to enjoy a cool beverage, tuck into a meal of traditional grill fare, and watch the sun slide slowly beneath the earth's flat surface.
Course at a Glance:
9-hole, par 31 course
