  • Lehigh Valley Grand Prix
    In a go kart, you're much closer to the source of horsepower than when you're riding in a car. All that invisible force leaps to life when you hit the accelerator, gently pushing you back into the seat. Drivers at Lehigh Valley Grand Prix feel that pull as they whip around a quarter-mile racetrack in gas-powered Sodi GT5 Proline karts. They slip past one another while making 11 brake-stomping turns, all with a vantage point not afforded by watching races on TV. The karts feature air-intake units that trap their exhaust and keep the atmosphere fresh, and the track—constructed from 1,300 used Goodyear tires and the shredded remains of Mario Andretti's learner's permit—is outfitted with three observation platforms for track marshals to regulate each lap and guarantee riders' safety. Three-point safety belts, roll bars, helmets, and neck braces also protect racers during their white-knuckle trips around the track. A full-time mechanic keeps finish lines crowded by calibrating karts to run within three-tenths of a second of one another and hanging hundreds of piñatas from the checkered flag. At the facility's bar, Octane, racers can refuel with drinks and food while watching stock-car races on the five 42-inch TVs.

  • A Bit of Luck Farm
    Noemi Wilson-Debriano unfortunately couldn't fit her horses into the suitcase when she left to earn her degrees in animal sciences and psychology at Delaware Valley College. To make up for the lack of four-hoofed companions in her life, she traveled from door to door to find horse owners who needed help training and showing their steed, channeling the riding expertise she had honed since age 6. The same tenacity led her to purchase her own farm after graduation, where she and her staff now board and educate equines against the backdrop of breathtaking scenery. They recognize that horses have distinct personalities and modes of communication with their riders, helping both human and animal establish strong connections. During lessons, her staff leads beginners and advanced riders alike through tailored routines that outline horse behavior and physiology as well as cover saddle-striding form. They open their farm doors to patrons of all stripes, ranging from those who mean to trot for pleasure to those who aim to unfairly dominate the next season of The Amazing Race. The farm cultivates a quiet environment of total acceptance and calm, welcoming all breeds to the barn. They customize their boarding services to suit each horse's temperament and training regimen. A team of vets, chiropractors, massage therapists, and nutritionists on the verge of engineering apple-flavored hay tend to hoofed tenants for the duration of their stay.
