The founders of the Festival of The Horse & Drum describe their event as the "United Nations of horses and humans," and not without good reason. The multicultural, multimedia equestrian gathering educates guests on the importance of horses throughout world history, and transports guests to a Native American pow wow, a cowboy town, and a renaissance faire. Bands representing several cultures perform on the Horse-a-Palooza stage, and the Equus Film Festival showcases long and short works starring stallions and mares, such as renowned horse actor Mare-lon Brando.

Though it's new on the restaurant scene, Spotted Fox Ale House is already making a name for itself thanks to its rotating selection of craft beers and its large menu of comfort food. Local beer offerings from Goose Island, Revolution, and Two Bros. share tap space with ales and stouts from California's Lagunitas, Colorado's Left Hand Brewing Company, Indiana's Three Floyds, and Michigan's Dark Horse. Diners can pair pints with dishes ranging from blackened tilapia tacos and pesto chicken paninis to Swiss mushroom burgers and Jail Island salmon. As they eat and drink, they can catch the big game on two large HD projectors or the 32 HDTVs throughout the sprawling space or in the reflection of their date's eyeballs. Live dance music takes place every Saturday starting at 8 p.m. and an outdoor patio is coming soon. Private party rooms are also available.

Otter Cove couldn't have a more fitting mascot. The park's theme centers around a river otter, an anthropomorphized version of which occasionally stops by to take pictures with guests. It's not hard to imagine this semiaquatic mammal zipping down one of the park's Salamander Slides and splashing into Turtle Creek, a 600-foot lazy river. Humans find themselves equally at home in aquatic play areas such as The Frog Bog, a 7,700 sq. ft. activity pool with spinning water apparatuses and a waterfall.

The park also contains a traditional lap pool heated to around 80 degrees fahrenheit, just warm enough to keep it from being taken over by penguins. In addition to open swim times, the pool hosts swim lessons for all ages. Otter Cove also helms The Otters Swim Team for swimmers aged 5?16.

Fifteen states. Fifty-five dealers. Four centuries of art. The Chicago Suburban Antiques Dealers Association (CSADA) makes its mission preserving and passing on American artifacts—some older even than the country itself. It holds two shows a year: the Spring Fox Valley Antiques Show, founded in 1957, and the Fall Fox Valley Antiques Show, founded in 1974. Visitors to either of these expos will find such goods as 19th- and 20th-century paintings, American country furniture, antique firearms and edged weapons, and industrial artifacts.

With about a decade's experience in starting up rowing clubs across the country, Row America is well versed in bringing the sport to a new audience. Its introductory Learn to Row classes teach sculling and other techniques to beginners whose only watercraft knowledge may have come from watching old Love Boat reruns. But Row America also serves more experienced athletes, who may dream of competing in the Olympics like founder Howard Winklevoss's sons did in 2008, with clubs for high schoolers and adults.
