The two-bedroom, newly renovated farmhouse at Blue Heron Vineyards safeguards guests in a rural, picturesque setting amid turn-of-the-century barns and vintage outbuildings. Guests have their choice of enjoying a homemade breakfast in the farmhouse, from the tree house-like deck of the winery, or lakeside while served by a wait staff of bullfrogs trained at L'Ambroisie in Paris. Spend an afternoon casually strolling through the vineyard grounds spread across a high bluff near the Ohio River, or visit the property's large Celtic cross, carved from natural stone over a 23-month period by local sculptor Greg Harris. Visitors calm their outdoors obsessions by fishing and canoeing at the nearby Deer Creek or exploring the Hoosier National Forest along scenic hiking and biking trails teeming with towering trees, wildlife, and ringleted porridge thieves.

Boasting 24 fully equipped lanes, Bowlodrome celebrates its 60th year of uniting friends, families, and amiable strangers in a shared passion for hurling dense plastic orbs into precisely configured wooden obelisks. With two hours of alley time (up to a $20/hour value), up to four sphere-slingers have ample opportunity to rehearse artful approaches, hone fluid follow-throughs, and master delivering the ball down the lane in fewer than six bounces. Because nimble footwork accounts for 87% of proper pin-pummeling technique, Bowlodrome outfits patrons in chic shoes (a $2.50 value/pair) expertly cobbled by retired professional bowlers.

Ranked second on the Kentucky edition of Golf Digest's Best in State list, the golf course at The Falls Resort & Golf Club makes use of the 2,500-acre resort's size with a verdant layout of varied terrain and historic flavor. Architect Jody Kinney encapsulates the bermuda fairways and bentgrass greens with rough of pure Kentucky bluegrass, yielding a layout that incorporates elements of wooded parkland, open links-style design, and galleries of chirpy avian. The course ranges from 4,200 yards from the front tees up to 6,900 from the back, and players of all skills must negotiate with the land's lakes and rivers. Between shots, idle players can wonder at the simple beauty of flowers populating the landscaped areas between holes or prepare their putters for a jousting duel in case of a tie.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole course
  • 6,900 yards from back tees
  • Five sets of tees per hole

It didn't take long for the first professional hockey team in Evansville to make their mark; in just their second year in the All American Hockey League, in 2010, the fledgling IceMen won the Davidson Cup in seven games. Though that first clan of IceMen has since gone extinct, the team soon resurrected as part of the ECHL, where they serve as the minor-league affiliate of both the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Saint Louis Blues. During games, fans fill the 9,400-seat Ford Center arena as the polar-bear mascot, Blizzard, entertains crowds and teaches children of the dangers of costume warming.

Strength and conditioning specialist Tony Maslan—who is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist as well as a 1998 Junior American Deadlift Record holder—knows the importance of safe and well-rounded fitness practices. The former Marine Corps Reserves sergeant and overseas infantry squad leader leads a team of more than 15 certified trainers in their mission to help individual fitness-seekers, children, and corporate clients break unhealthy habits. This goal-oriented staff emphasizes accountability and measurable results during one-on-one and group training sessions as they reshape clients’ waistlines with kettlebells and deadlifts, as well as intense challenges such as sparring and pulling a truck using only their pinky finger. The on-staff nutrition counselor bolsters these results with comprehensive nutrition guidance, and posts diverse recipes online as well. Of this, Maslan stated that he "knew we needed to help clients go beyond the microwave." To help keep their clients from returning to their previous lifestyles, these trainers also host online, in-home, and sport-specific training.

Maslan and his team believe in giving back to the community, so they occasionally host charity events to benefit the missions of the Wounded Warrior Project, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and 911 Gives Hope.

After fitness classes, students can venture to the gym’s locker rooms, which house large, walk-in showers for freshening up post-workout or testing the efficacy of a recently purchased umbrella.
