Sprawled out across 4,400 acres of public land and facilities, Mill Creek MetroParks attracts nearby humans with recreational activities such as boating and fishing. Rentals—which are available Wednesday–Friday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.—allow lounge-arounders to abandon dry land and its tendency to get dirt on everything by hopping aboard a boat with a ninesome of loved ones, then gliding off to explore 44 acres of steel-blue ripples surrounded by soothing emerald foliage. The nearby trails, gardens and Visitor & Education Center make it possible to extend the adventure even after the 60 minutes of floating are up.

Q&A with Chad Hanysh, President

What makes your business stand out?

We provide golf scorecards to 15 golf courses in Youngstown, Ohio ... for free. In return, they have given us great discounts on greens fees.

What inspired you to start this business?

[I] played golf in college and majored in marketing. [I] had always wanted to run my own business. When [we] came up with the concept of our MyLoopCard Golf Scorecards, I knew this was my chance.

What?s your favorite part about your job?

I like the fact that I can deal with a product which I created, but also ... in an arena (golf) which I have a passion for.

At Boardman Lanes, bowling balls thunder down 24 gleaming, waxed lanes. Automatic pin setters and scoring computers allow customers to focus on their games, with little downtime between throws. On Friday and Saturday nights, black lights cast an otherworldly glow during cosmic bowling. The facility also features video games to provide breaks from bowling action and a snack bar to keep players fueled throughout the day.
