One empty school bus, twenty-seven abandoned cars, and a desolate two-story house are the only refuges for combatants roving an expansive urban field. Fourteen additional playfields set the stage for games, surrounding players in open fields and dense forests. It's at Futureball Paintball's 115-acre facility that friendly paintball and Airsoft battles unfold each day and have unfolded for more than 20 years. While vehicle carcasses characterize the urban landscapes, two airfields exhibit red inflatables that mimic the ruins of ancient bounce castles. Between games, a 5-acre picnic area serves as neutral ground to strategize and nibble snacks.
To ensure fair play, Futureball Paintball's staff leads brief orientations and monitors all action. They can also repair and upgrade guns.

After buying their first canoe in 1942, Chester and Stella Heavner were hooked. So were their friends. After constantly loaning out their red-canvas Old Town canoe, the pair invested in two more and started charging a nominal rental fee. In 1953, they made it official with a patch of lakefront property, eight canoes, and a trailer.
Today, Heavner Canoe & Kayak Rental is run by Chester and Stella’s eldest son, Alan. He and his staff manage an inventory of more than 200 canoes and kayaks, which they rent at three lakes along the Huron River. In addition to hourly rentals, they teach beginning kayak lessons led by instructors certified by the American Canoe Association and the American Red Cross. The sessions cover water safety, stroke techniques, and how to play dead when being attacked by a bigger kayak.

Brighton Beads & More helps beadists, metal workers, and other crafty artists fill their supply boxes and hone their crafts. Their experienced instructors teach novice and seasoned artists alike, helping them create custom art in a variety of classes. Students can sign up for skill-building classes, such as bead stringing, metalsmithing, or wire wrapping, or learn how to make specific pieces such as fused-glass mirrors or decorative chains. The calendar’s many offerings allow guests to work around brimming schedules or coordinate alibis for ice-cream-truck holdups. Brighton Beads & More also encourages customers to place orders for supplies they don’t carry and request custom classes they don’t offer, so their staff can attempt to leap through beaded rings of fire to accommodate those wishes.
