In 1987, Brian McInerny was careening around Italy in a four-wheel, multipassenger Surrey cycle. An avid cyclist, he fell in love with this quirky contraption that he'd never seen in the United States and he immediately sought out the manufacturer and purchased a crate of them. Wheel Fun Rentals traces its origin to this very moment, as Brian changed his surrey-distribution company into a rental and tour company that spans the nation. In spite of a general suspicion of unicycles and their ulterior motives, the company's corporate philosophy espouses "Supporting active healthy lifestyles for our customers and maintaining a healthy environment for all." Wheel Fun's fleet of rentals now includes bicycles, multipassenger Surreys, scooters, surfboards, and paddle-based watercraft. They also promote green communities by offering free rentals to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

No ski lessons. No beginners allowed. All ungroomed terrain. Averaging 273 inches per year, Mount Bohemia is a snow-covered haven for seasoned skiers, eschewing bunny slopes for 500-plus acres with two chair lifts filled with 90 runs?most of which are rated for experts. The mountain's 900-foot vertical drop, noted for being the tallest in the midwest, has won it many fans, including MSN Travel, which named it on its list of 10 Undiscovered Ski Spots in 2006. They were also rated number one for best powder skiing east of the rockies by Powder Magazine.

Over the past year, CamRock Cafe & Sport—in partnership with the Village of Cambridge and Capitol Water Trails—has transformed the Koshkonong Creek from a tricky maze of fallen trees into a clear and gentle waterway. Situated on the shore of the creek amid miles of meandering snowshoeing, mountain-biking, and cross-country-skiing trails, the café ensures that its clientele doesn't need to look far for something to do. The staff helps visitors take advantage of the terrain with bike, boat, gear, and Go-Go-Gadget 'copter rentals. Hosted events bring people together to explore the trails via bike and listen to live music back at the café, or take part in a yoga or spin class. After guests return from a sojourn, the café supplies them with more than 100 craft beers, toasted gourmet sandwiches, and Alterra coffee from the food and drink menus.

Wolf River Adventures, a partner of Rustic Wolf Inn, launches kayaks and canoes into Wisconsin's tranquil waters. Their shuttles ferry customers, chosen watercrafts, and rubber ducky stowaways to various launch points along the Wolf River and Embarrass River. Once there, vessels can float through 80 miles of undeveloped flat waters. Trees shade paddlers as they peak into the private lives of local wildlife or pause to cast fishing lines out into the river.

Wolf River Trips and Campground offers kayaking, canoeing, and tubing trips that make use of the same feature that lends such natural splendor to their camping sites: Little Wolf River. The gentle, clear waterway winds through the property and away into wilderness, passing through gentle rapids and quiet drifting areas. Several spots offer a smooth, sandy bottom, ideal locations to hop out of a craft and go for a swim. Others provide a bit of bouncing through rapids, easy enough to navigate in an inflatable tube. The camp grounds themselves can house up to 124 visitors in tents and 64 RVs with full hook-ups, all over-looking a portion of Little Wolf River.
