At Art & Soul Gallery Studio, Lis-el and Alexis Crowley lead casual art classes in a space brimming with creations by local artists. In the studio, the artists demonstrate steps in crafting items such as fused-glass pieces and painted scarves. Students follow along during class sessions, eventually bringing pieces into existence with their own individual flair and burgeoning telekinetic powers. After class, students can decamp to the gallery for a glimpse of other’s work or pop into a comfortable lounge for sips of coffee or tea.

The 18-hole course at The Tradition at Windsor showcases a design that features emerald chutes enveloped by dense forest. The 6,068-yard layout recently received a major renovation by Roger Rulewich, former chief architect for legendary designer Robert Trent Jones, Sr. The course now features repositioned and reshaped bunkers, rendering it more enjoyable, difficult, and suited for sunbathing in the sand. Though the bunkers may look slightly different, most of the course's original splendor remains.

On the fourth hole, golfers can lay up short of the pond that lies just beyond the end of the fairway, leaving a mid- to short-iron onto the elevated green. On the 18th-hole finale, players must bypass a stream that cuts the par 5 in half, then lay up at the bottom of a large hill rather than trying to reach the green in two or waiting for tectonic plate shifts to make it more approachable.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,068 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 69.8 from the back tees * Course slope of 119 from the back tees * Three sets of tees per hole

The 119th Wapping Fair beckons curious visitors with a flock of engaging performers, interactive displays, farm animals, and hilarious races featuring pigs and hot-dog dachshunds. Audiences gather around the slew of entertainers, such as sword-swallowing showman Roderick Russell and Jayna Lee⎯a multitalented acrobat, aerial trapeze artist, stilt walker, income-tax specialist, and juggler. After visitors are fresh out of applause, they can pursue hands-on fun at one of the interactive displays, where they'll explore such skills as butter making, organic landscaping, cow milking, and how to judge a pumpkin on its personality over its performance in the swimsuit competition.
