The course at High Lands Golf Club challenges visitors with 6,599 yards of tight lies, concealed obstacles, and fairway trees extending their unlucky limbs into players’ sightlines. Tree-lined fairways and immaculate greens yield some scenic vistas for players bashing orbs along the course’s serpentine length. The signature third hole starts players off from an elevated tee shot that must stay out of the out-of-bounds area on the left, but not drift too far right, where clearing the wooded ravine on the second shot would become impossible. The next shot onto the elevated green is made difficult by the black walnut tree guarding the green, making for an altogether difficult run at par. Toward the end of the round, players must face a gauntlet of obstacles on holes 16, 17, and 18 before heading in for the day. Named the “Bermuda Triangle” for the architect’s tendency to incorporate treacherous waterways and affinity for Bermuda shorts, hole 16 challenges golfers with difficult lies, slippery putts, and water hazards that loom large.

In discussing the impetus behind The Bullet Ranch, Sales Manager Jerry Carver points out that the founders?including outdoor sportsmen, former military members, and law-enforcement officers?"saw something missing in the industry ... the absence of a welcome mat." Rather than create just another shooting range that left customers on their own, they aspired to create a friendly, unintimidating environment where the staff greets them by name. In addition to providing advice when purchasing a firearm at the shop, these specialists fix mounts and scopes via gunsmithing services and instruct students in a range of classes. These include courses geared toward shooting an automatic rifle, pistol shooting for women, and qualifying to apply for a concealed-carry license.
Steven Garavuso wanted The Bullet Ranch to be different from other ranges. After a 17-year career in law enforcement, the NRA-certified pistol instructor sought to create a welcoming and inviting facility where visitors could feel comfortable and?most importantly?safe as they learned, practiced, and purchased new equipment. This dedication to a condescension-free environment permeates the center's classes, which include safety courses for various firearms as well as concealed-carry weapon training. Firearms, apparel, accessories are all available for sale, and the onsite gunsmiths lend their services by performing maintenance inspections and detailed cleanings. The Bullet Ranch also features an outdoor archery range with 10 90-foot lanes and movable targets.
Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be flexible to do yoga. Rather, the flexibility—both physical and mental—comes along with the practice. At Studio Om, students with any or no experience are welcome to try a variety of yoga classes. Class options include styles ranging from gentle or chair yoga to more vigorous Vinyasa yoga, depending on whether students seek a relaxing or invigorating session. The studio also holds Pilates and yoga fusion classes, as well as Holy Yoga sessions, which combine biblical Christian study with an all-levels yoga flow sequence.

Motorcycles have long played a crucial role in the American mythos. The vroom of a twin-cylinder engine conjures images of Evel Knievel soaring through the sky on a daredevil jump or James Dean perched astride his 1955 Triumph Trophy, clad in a black leather jacket and brimming with smoldering angst. Even those who haven't felt their hands on the throttle can appreciate the motorcycle as an all-American icon of freedom, rebellion, and individuality.
The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum celebrates this iconography with exhibits that pay tribute to every aspect of motorcycling history. The museum's permanent collection is chock-full of memorabilia and ephemera from the early days of motorcycling, such as a Roper Steamer from 1894 and a turbo-powered penny-farthing from the same era. Visitors can also tour the Hall of Fame itself, a main-floor exhibition that celebrates the heroes of the racetrack and blacktop.
