  • Zap Zone
    Zap Zone's eight locations in Michigan and two locations in Canada each feature a unique combination of attractions?anything from bumper cars to the Jump Zone's cushioned obstacle course. In the laser-tag arena, both kids and adults demonstrate their teamwork skills by outscoring opponents in fast-paced games that take place inside black-lit mazes of neon-tinged hallways. Arcades also round out every location's attractions, tempting passersby to drop a few tokens on racing games and skee-ball, or a lot of tokens on the claw game filled with Faberg? eggs.

  • The Jungle Gym
    Constant laughter and the shuffling of sock-clad feet score the scene at The Jungle Gym, where kids bound, bob, and dangle atop the cushy surfaces, slides, and crawlspaces of an indoor playground. On one side of the play space, kids can descend down three slides, which they access by scaling a series of platforms and tunnels laden with fun obstacles. The playground's plush surface is easy on adults' knees, so parents can take part in the fun when they're not enjoying snacks, slices of pizza, or coffee in attached dining room.

  • Pine View Golf Course
    Designed in 1989 by architect Harley Hodges, Pine View Golf Course sends golfers weaving through forests of towering Michigan pines, attempting a variety of shots using most of the clubs in their bags. Players choose from five sets of tees, varying the Championship course from as short as 4,101 yards from the green tees up to 6,490 from the blues. Golfers first traverse wide fairways that forgive slight errors in the front nine, then take on the back nine?known as "Rolling Pines" because of the large tree trunks that regularly roll across the course at incredible speed. Difficulty intensifies noticeably after the turn, as players must flex their par 5 prowess on the 10th and 18th holes. Though only one body of water rests on the front nine of the Championship course, Pine View's third nine, known as "Little Pines," features water much more prominently. This relatively short par 30 test makes for a great introduction to the game, as players lob shots over ponds and streams or fit golf balls with goggles and send them to explore the depths. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 72 course Total length of 6,490 yards from the back tees Course rating of 71.6 from the back tees Course slope of 126 from the back tees Five sets of tees per hole Scorecard

  • Hickory Creek
    Hickory Creek Golf Course features a number of high-risk, high reward golf shots along a vibrant path of water, trees, and sand; but none so daring as the tee shot on hole 17. Noted as the signature hole at the club, the tee box positions players in front of an island green and an expanse of water that makes dry land seem farther away than the 161 yards indicated on the scorecard. If players block out the watery danger and execute on a smooth swing, solid contact, and complete follow-through, they give themselves a good chance that their next shot will be with the putter as opposed to a ball-retrieval harpoon. With this hole out of the way, only the long, dogleg-right No.18 lies between them and drinks on The Greenside Tavern's outdoor patio.

  • Infinite Iron
    The experienced personal fitness trainers at Infinite Iron design custom strength-training programs that include differing levels of weightlifting and cardio depending on the results clients wish to achieve. In one month of 45-minute sessions, gym-goers pump dumbbells and barbells to build muscle and swallow medicine balls to fight head colds. Clients make full use of the gym's equipment, which includes kettlebells, bosu balls, and swiss balls. Trainees also run in place on treadmills and ellipticals in order to raise their heart rates and to symbolize the lack of progress mankind has made in the science of mustard-stain removal.
