The sight of a medieval castle surrounded by tall cacti may seem anachronistic at first, but it's hard to question the image when one is trying to putt a mini golf ball into a grassy hole off the circulating paddles of a windmill. It's whimsical moments like this that make Golf N’ Stuff's name feel understated. Beyond the two lush 18-hole mini golf courses that draw year-round visitors, the entertainment center boasts go-karts, bumper boats, and more than 100 arcade games. Batting cages let both kids and adults perfect their swings. Visitors can refuel on hot dogs, Dippin' Dots ice cream, and soda at the snack bar.

Endorsed by the Parents Television Council and featured on Lifetime Television, Family Values Cinema scours libraries and cutting rooms for family-friendly, G- and PG-rated movies and delivers them to busy parents. A discerning squad of moms prescreens each film, selecting only those with clean language, minimal violence, and a lack of scary clowns for the Family Values Cinema library. Kin clans then receive the moms' latest picks in the mail, such as Kayla, about a boy who discovers a sled dog in the wilderness, and The Last Brickmaker in America, in which a widower, played by Academy Award–winner Sidney Poitier, rekindles his spirit by mentoring a troubled teen. Groupon-holding families receive one Family Values Movie Night package (valued at $10.90) containing a total of four movies, plus a discussion guide and family activity that go with each film. Hungry critics-in-training can also enjoy movie-themed foods prepared from the enclosed recipe cards, while the package's trio of films about firefighters, police officers, and rescue workers (a $15.90 value) gets kids extinguishing fake fires, resuscitating cat-maimed Barbies, and chasing imaginary identity thieves.
