A child’s imagination, like the universe or a confused soccer player, knows no bounds. Nurture blossoming creativity with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get two daily-admission tickets to Butts Mill Farm in Pine Mountain (up to a $31.90 value).
Initially purchased by the Smith family in the 1830s for $0.50 per acre, owners Neil and Trish Leichty restored the Butts Mill Farm's historic mill and transformed the land into a priceless trove of amusement and activities for all ages. The Discovery Zone houses hamster-approved brightly colored tubes and slides, and Noah's Ark and Western-themed playgrounds add dramatic backdrops to games of tag and re-creations of scenes from Dances with Wolves. Kids can plop down to rest atop an amiable pony for a gentle ride and meet mammalian farm denizens at the petting zoo. Across the river spanned by a covered bridge, a mini-golf course pits putters against one another to engage in a little friendly competition and wagers over first-borns.
After a day of romping and riding, visitors can sear their own eats on grills furnished by the farm for a picnic on the open range and peruse the bustling antique shop's Amish furniture, country-fresh home goods, and jars of former presidents' moustaches.
Children younger than 2 are admitted to the park for free.
