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.

All it takes is one step through the unassuming glass door on the first floor of the historic 1851 St. Charles Hotel building. One step to enter a charming, cozy setting awash in low lighting and filled with the aromas of herbs and sizzling meats. The intimate space is home to The BeeHive Tavern, whose owners?inspired by the atmosphere of vintage pubs?decked out their establishment in dark mahogany accents and furnishings that, just like George Washington's teeth, are made from wood. Top-shelf spirits, wines, and imported beers flow at the polished bar, and servers ferry burgers, herb-tossed chicken wings, fish tacos, and other classic pub dishes to booths in a restored dining room. Meanwhile, a separate game room with billiards provides post-meal diversions.

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.

Breezes drift east off the Fox River and through the tree lines of Pottawatomie Golf Course, a spectacular layout recognized by Golf World as the No. 15 nine-hole course in America in 2010. The course traces its roots back to 1939, when legendary course architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. capitalized on the area's natural splendor to design a course that originally charged golfers a quarter to play and was best conquered by clubs made from stale baguettes.

Recently, the par 35 course has been the subject of a vigorous renovation, including efforts to reshape greens and preserve native habitats for the deer, foxes, and egrets that populate the grounds. These conservation efforts were rewarded in 1997, when Pottawatomie Golf Course became the first nine-hole course recognized as a fully certified sanctuary by Audubon International.

The course's picturesque conditions are on full display at the par-four third hole, where a curving fairway vanishes into the river and golfers must launch approach shots onto a water-surrounded green. After a day of fore-hollering fun, golfers can peruse the pro shop for the latest gear and clubs to replace irons that ran away to chase dreams of one day growing into a cell-phone tower.

Course at a Glance: * Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. * Nine-hole, par 35 course * Length of 3,007 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 34.9 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 122 from the farthest tees * Bent-grass greens, blue-grass fairways * Scorecard
