With nearly 23-years of equestrian experience, Mechlin Farm owners Kenny and Connie Mechlin host high-quality instruction for bipedal students. Led by highly trained teacher Ellen Baehr, students begin their lessons by studying the correct way to prepare, groom, tack, and check their horse's oil. Learn to steer your steed in the great outdoors surrounded by verdant fenced-in pastures or retreat to Mechlin's covered arena in the event of rain or snow. Baehr tailors every one-hour session to each junior jockey's comfort level, ensuring an enjoyable and personal experience for individual saddle fillers or sects of rodeo clowns in training.

Great Griffin Farms also sells and leases horses to enthusiasts who want to spend more time in the saddle and less time in a living-room chair shaped like a saddle

Blue. Yellow. Green. Purple. These colors rain down from the ceiling at Great Skate Roller Rink, bouncing off of the disco ball and darting over the wide-open floor. The kaleidoscopic beams illuminate skaters of all ages, some strolling side by side, some cruising solo, and some shouting "Look no hands!" before realizing the emptiness of that boast. There's off-rink fun too, with arcades and a concession stand for guests in need of a breather. The rink also plays host to roller hockey games as well as skating competitions and lessons.

Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $7.98 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (up to a $3.69 value).

Though kids need to frolic and play, they must also learn financial responsibility if they're ever to grow up and pay for their parents' dinner. At Hammer's Food & Fun, an electronic game card opens the door to Hammer’s array of indoor rides and arcade games, teaching kids the mystical power—and responsibility—contained within a magnetic stripe. Indeed, after games such as Big Bass Wheel and Space Balls dispense points redeemable for prizes, kids can retain the balance on the card for future visits—an educational precursor to saving money in a grownup bank's vault filled with 50/50 raffle tickets. Before exploring the indoor attractions—which range from go-karts and mini golf to inflatable bounce houses and a checkered dance floor—families fill their bellies at Hammer’s extensive buffet. Made fresh daily using local beef from Twin Hills Farm, slices of pizza in more than 20 varieties sit on circular trays, and elsewhere, a line of sweet desserts taunts the salad bar filled with crispy vegetables trying desperately to sprout ice-cream-flavored leaves.
