Interspersed with rolling hills, meandering woods, and rippling water obstacles, each of these featured courses provides a challenging round for golfers of any skill level. Rock Manor's winding 6,405-yard layout of subtle fairways and pristine greens—designed by renowned course architect Lester George—was named Best Public Course in Delaware by Delaware Today. Putting-placement wizard Edmund B. Ault designed a previous winner of the same award, Delcastle Golf Course, in 1971. The course welcomes players to three separate tee boxes, from which clubbers can drive balls toward rolling hills, wide fairways, and caddies performing cartwheels. Then park your course-tour caravan at the Ed Oliver Golf Club, which rests on the original site of the Wilmington Country Club. Golfers digging their spikes into the manicured 18th hole will notch views of a 100-year-old chimney, which puffs out a smoky likeness of Jack Nicklaus eating a hero sandwich during each birdie.

Within each noncompetitive Curves facility, female fitness seekers are invited to move through a 30-minute circuit of hydraulic-resistance machines that are designed to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Shunning cumbersome weight stacks, the hydraulic gadgets adapt to each exerciser's body weight and fitness level to complement her individual abilities, subsequently decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. And because traditional lift-and-lower motions tend to create bulky muscles, the machines promote push-and-pull movements to sculpt toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing unsuspecting grapefruit. Experienced trainers are always nearby to help clients manage their machine maneuvering, and a soundtrack of fun, upbeat music includes cues to let women know when it's time to move on to the next station or break for an air viola solo.

One of the largest gatherings of its kind in the country, St. Anthony’s Italian Festival celebrates its eponymous country's rich cultural heritage through a Renaissance-inspired jamboree of food, wine, music, and cultural events. In La Piazetta, vocalists Vincenzo Fiore and Nicola Nigro stimulate auditory organs, and Tarantella dancers showcase traditional routines. Restaurants specializing in heterogeneous regional varieties of Italian cuisine dot the fairgrounds’ landscape in edible tents strung together with deli meat. Diners at the Antonian Surfside can purchase steamed soft-shell crabs and clams, and Café Nona Starda visitors select land-roaming comestibles such as grilled sausage with fresh peppers as well as broccoli rabe. Customers sip crushed grapes courtesy of La Piazza and DaVinci’s.

Ramsey’s Farm is Delaware’s most aesthetically ascendant pumpkin-dotted prairie, welcoming seasonal family outings and Halloween spirit-summoning sessions. Your Groupon is good for admission for two to the autumnal expanse. Once inside, browse the more-than-10-acre pumpkin patch for a perfectly ovoid jack-o’-lantern canvas, or try to collect all eight different varieties of pumpkin that the farm offers, which, once arranged in a perfect half-circle, reveal the answers to the following evening’s Jeopardy episode. After you’ve found the perfect combination of holiday gourds, hop onto a human-moving tractor for a halcyon hayride through the scenic Brandywine River Valley. Next, test your spatial senses and biological compass with a trip through an eight-acre corn maze, replete with in-maze educational opportunities that cover modern farming, local agriculture, and the hibernation schedules of the area's anthropomorphic mole population. Tykes looking to conquer something other than confusingly arranged cornstalks can explore a bale maze for hay-strewn, investigative excitement.
