Operating in conjunction with Ohio Valley Flight Service, Top-Notch Aviation guides fledgling aviators into the skies for odysseys ranging from introductory-level discovery flights to commercial-pilot training. The band of certified flight instructors makes its nest at Washington County Airport, an all-weather operation with a runway that stretches to 5,004 feet—long enough for planes to execute proper takeoffs, land safely, and shake off stray clouds from their propellers.

The canny staff at 84 Golf Center helps seekers of shot straightness to personalize their equipment with professional clubfitting, a fully stocked pro shop, and a 300-yard driving range. During the course of a 45-minute session (a $75 value) a seasoned clubber analyzes each client's swing on the range, collecting data on their individual swing speed, loft, and club-flinging distance. A FlightScope launch monitor tracks each shot, showing trends in ball flight that will be used to choose the most suitable equipment. Data in hand, the customer can test demo clubs that jibe with their individual needs before making their ultimate decision.

The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum thrusts visitors into the midst of Pennsylvania's Trolley Era, conjuring bygone methods of travel with exhibits, rides, and a full roster of antique trolleys, including a horse-drawn streetcar from the 1870s. Hourly tours shepherd guests and members on their exploration of the museum's collection, starting with a video introduction before a scenic, four-mile ride fills the air with the sounds of century-oldf trolleys. Inside the visitor-education center, pictorial exhibits breathe life into storied eras, and stops inside the restoration shop illuminate how volunteer craftsmen restore vintage trolleys. Trolley fans can also add to their own memorabilia collections with souvenirs from the store, or borrow the museum spaces for birthday parties and rentals.

A still figure stands silently behind a few thin trees. When he sees someone emerging from a long, metal tube several yards away, he takes aim with his marker, squeezes the trigger, and watches a blot of brightly colored paint materialize on his friend's shoulder. Such friend-turned-foe scenarios play out daily at Urban Assault, a paintball facility whose outdoor battlefields in Cecil and indoor arenas in McDonald attract players from all around the area. In the outdoor arenas, the surrounding wooded landscape adds variety of terrain and barricade possibilities, letting staffers add touches such as metal crawl tubes and other strategic bits of architecture that paintballers have come to depend on for cover. The competitors engage in open play on five such outdoor fields—each with unique features—as well as in the company's two indoor spaces that total some 30,000 square feet. Indoors, paintball contests go from sparsely adorned to almost disco-like as players stalk their enemies while traipsing across catwalks and navigating a demanding maze of fog machines, black lights, and adrenaline-boosting music inside one of the fields. The brains behind Urban Assault also offer special rates to large groups, military veterans, and members of the CIA's finger-painting brigade.
