    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: The Club at Silver Lake facet_type_id: 978de1e0-5f3b-1032-bad0-211ae58b6c29 html_text: |- Stretched out along the western banks of Silver Lake, a gauntlet of bent-grass fairways leads players along a path that presents challenging play and picturesque views of the water. Though play never wanders close enough to Silver Lake proper to render it a hazard, multiple ponds enter play on several holes. The course adds additional challenges with undulating terrain, tall evergreens that line the fairways, and strategically placed sand traps that double as tanning beaches for displaced tourists. Adjacent to the course, golfers can find respite at The Club restaurant, which offers a menu of classic American dishes to be enjoyed in a dining room with views of Silver Lake. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 70 course Total length of 6,012 yards from the back tees Course rating of 69 from the back tees Course slope of 119 from the back tees

  • Dipson Theatres
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Dipson Theatres facet_type_id: a5094160-5f37-1032-b8bb-62bc13bb60c7 html_text: Dipson Theatres celebrates a reputation as a regional movie institution with a network of 9 locations lighting 46 silver screens across Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. Though the company now spreads across the northeast United States, it began in the small city of Batavia, NY, in 1939—a time when movies were called “picture shows,” Roosevelt was in the White House, and everybody could only see in black and white. Today that tradition underlies the cinematic experience as patrons chomp popcorn and sip sodas, marveling at modern 3-D visual adventures, summer action movies, family-friendly features, or even indie art flicks and footage from world-renowned opera performances.

  • Hickory Ridge Golf and Country Club
    Hickory Ridge Golf & Country Club incorporates the natural lay of tree lines and waterways to form an 18-hole, par 72 course that presents shot-making challenges and scenic views. The signature fourth hole showcases the challenges and charms of the course, as the 431-yard par 4 requires a long tee shot to clear a ravine and before the dogleg left curves around walls of trees on the way to the green. Water comes into play on 13 holes, striking fear in the hearts of players who don’t trust their swings or haven't yet converted their golf bag into a personal flotation device. A driving range that stretches 300 yards into the distance helps golfers prepare for upcoming rounds and serves as the venue for golf lessons and clinics conducted by Hickory Ridge’s resident aces. The club also quiets rumbling stomachs with burgers, sandwiches, and french fries from the snack bar and Friday night dinner specials. Before or after rounds, golfers can load up their bags with balls and tees or replace shirts eaten by a rogue ball-washer at Hickory Ridge’s pro shop.

  • 58 on Main
    58 on Main feeds visitors' minds and their stomachs. The quaint gallery is not only home to a rotating collection of locally created oil paintings, watercolors, and photography, but also houses a cafe and workshop center. Here, the friendly instructors help students unlock their creative potential in art classes including still-life painting and photography, or encourage them to hone new skills such as playing chess and cooking. To further nurture artistic endeavors, they offer a photography resource center in which artists can create at digital workstations equipped with computers, scanners, and printers, and a green-screen room where they can work on inserting themselves into all of Barack Obama's selfies. The staffers will even print images from slides, negatives, and digital images. To fuel all this ingenuity, baristas stand at the ready serving coffee, espresso, and tea to complement lunches and pastries. And the bistro offers social events, too, including open-mic nights and wine and dessert tastings.

  • Running Wild Paintball
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Running Wild Paintball Inc. & Laser Tag facet_type_id: 8b7b2f90-5f3e-1032-afff-e6b0cc9f34bf html_text: |- John Johnson and his brothers, Ben and Kirk, started Running Wild Paintball Inc. & Laser Tag when they were still in their teens. Today, the business includes five paintball fields where kids and adults can face off amid trees, a stream, and both natural and handmade bunkers. One field even has a western-style ghost town with a store, a jail, a mine, and a church. While paintball and Airsoft guns launch tangible projectiles, laser tag players politely take down opponents with beams of light. Additionally, Johnson can repair ailing paintball guns—he’s one of only a few certified master airsmiths in the country.
