League play, friendly outings, family birthdays—all happily coexist on Lakeside Lanes’ 32 lanes. Of these, 12 are equipped with bumpers for kids or adults who prefer to think of bowling as a giant game of billiards. After league play ends on Friday and Saturday nights, the music grows louder and black light bathes the lanes for cosmic bowling.

The attached restaurant, the Dockside Diner, isn’t particularly near any docks, but the “diner” part is more than accurate. A pair of sock-hoppers dance on the teal and purple striped walls, and chrome railings zip around a checker-tiled room where guests munch wings, burgers, and pizza. An arcade and game room adds more entertainment options with pool tables, darts, and video games.

Country Ridge Stables provides a beautiful, modern environment and is fully equipped for horse-riding lessons suited for both equine amateurs and veterans of the stirrup and saddle. A two-hour lesson from the experienced instructors will cover an hour of groundwork and an hour of riding for a full-spectrum sampling of the basics. Swing and cavort across the 75x200-foot outdoor arena while imagining that you're on your way to rescue the maiden or male baseball player of your personal preference. After two hours, you won't transform into a master equestrian, but you will feel confident and grounded around horses and understand the basics of mounting and riding. Before your lesson, you'll receive a personally fitted certified riding helmet from the accessory experts at Saddler's Row, protecting noggin and nogginnards alike from unnecessary dents and damage.
