At Handsome Hobo Pizzeria, the chefs put a local American twist on classic Italian cuisine. In the kitchen, they toss risottos with vegetables and seafood, and pastas with meats and sauce. They also prepare both Chicago-style deep-dish and New York-style thin-crust pizzas. At the bar, 16 wines pour from a refrigerated tap. The aromas of herbs and spices waft through an eclectic space created by interior designer and HGTV Star finalist Tylor Devereaux, conjuring an atmosphere that seems to fit the restaurant's name. Seats gather on the outside rims of striped banquettes, and against a brass-topped table curved around an open fire pit. The restaurant's walls, some painted and others covered with reclaimed wood, are hung with everything from vintage signs to typewriters.
Perfect Brow Bar was born in 2008, when the United States first started embracing eyebrow threading—an ancient method of removing unwanted hair with swift twists of a cotton thread. As the service’s popularity grew, so did Perfect Brow Bar: it now boasts more than 15 locations across the central states. Some patrons report that threading is less painful, causes less redness, and is more precise than waxing, and the method doesn't require any brutal candle killing. In addition to threading, the trained staff beautifies clients with services including facials, eyelash extensions, and henna tattoos.

Carved through dense woodland, Chase Hammond Golf Club's 18-hole course showcases a scenic backdrop and a well-manicured landscape. Throughout the course, a tapestry of towering trees sways over the edges of fairways, shrinking landing zones for the tiny Scottish pilots who steer golf balls from their dimple-size cockpits. Wildlife such as deer, turkeys, eagles, and foxes occasionally emerges from the foliage to check in on players' rounds, adding character to the vibrant fringe. Before rounds, golfers and their clubs can warm up swings at the club's driving range.
As the sun sets in Holton, wicked things come out to play at the Trail of Terror haunted trail.
