The ember of Nick Coppola's fervor for fishing began years ago. While Nick studied biology in college, this passion bloomed into a full-blown vocation as he spent summers scouring the rivers of Southwest Montana. Since those early moments wading in the tides, Nick has become a New York State–licensed guide, continuing to catch trophy salmon, steelhead trout, brown trout, and runaway goldfish as the head of Slickwater Adventures.

Throughout two seasons each year, Coppola and his staff lead anglers of all levels into some of the East Coast's most picturesque habitats, including the Ausable River during summer months and the eastern Lake Ontario tributaries during winter. No matter the location, Coppola encourages participants to customize each adventure to their specific goals, whether they are honing existing skills, learning basic techniques, or luring in trophy catches with tricks and well-timed eyewinks.

Swamp Road Walk of Terror rings in the Halloween season with its spooky trail, inhabited by ghoulish characters such as Killjoy the Clown, Ripsaw the Lumberjack, and Swamp Creature. As visitors traverse the boggy landscape, frightening apparitions spring from the darkening path, eliciting squeals, jumps, and silent vows to join a running group. Of the bevy of characters at the annual spookfest, the Dollmaker seems to quicken the most pulses; famed local toymaker Herbert Merkins, wanted for kidnapping and murder in connection with crafting his seemingly innocent dolls out of human skin, is on the loose. The fact that the tale is made up doesn’t stop swampgoers from fleeing the actor’s clammy grasp as he and his cohorts frighten visitors with backstories of terrifying experiences and trips to the DMV.

As the AHL minor-league affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Syracuse Crunch has primed players for the big league since 1994.

Some golf courses meander through slight tree-lines, but The Ridge Golf Club cleaves through the actual forest. Upon arriving to the course, you might notice that the forest nearly swallows the rustic clubhouse, positioned in front of a towering, tree-speckled ridge and fronted by massive trees. The same topography extends throughout the 9-hole course, where golfers must contend with countless trees and significant elevation changes. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the course makes artful use of undulations that force golfers into awkward lies, much like telling the course ranger that your golf cart didn't jump the bunker on hole six. After rounds, golfers can dine at The Ridge Tavern, where chefs prepare eclectic dishes such as pasta nucci, shrimp scampi, and NY strip steaks.

The ping of a flush drive reverberates through OptiGolf Syracuse's 8,300-square-foot facility, an indoor haven for fairway fiends. Here, 10 OptiGolf simulators vividly recreate more than 100 championship golf courses, including famous tracks such as Pebble Beach and the Old Course at St Andrews. Two private simulator rooms foster intimate rounds or private parties, while a specialty TGI Fridays menu and a full bar with six draft beers and top-shelf liquor keep spirits high. Golfers are encouraged to bring their own clubs, and they can even call ahead to have someone bring in their clubs from the parking lot, allowing guests to release their caddy from the indentured-servitude contract.

WonderWorks didn't always reside in Syracuse, at least not according to Professor Wonder. As the story goes, his laboratory in the Bermuda Triangle was uprooted and relocated by the power of the tornado he was tasked to create. Even disbelieving kids won't be able to deny that WonderWorks upside-down rooms and wacky attractions seem to corroborate Professor Wonder's tale. Let them test out the Hurricane Shack, where winds emulate the 84 mph gusts of a real storm, or the Bubble Lab, where they can actually go inside a huge bubble. For some more active fun, visitors can rocket around an indoor laser-tag maze or climb the lines of the ropes course.
