ProKart Indoor Racing lets riders tear through concrete turns and down straightaways at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. Seated in low-slung black or red go-karts, drivers are just inches above the ground as they careen around the course. Computers track them during the race, recording finishing times. The track at ProKart's Maple Grove facility runs inside and outside, weather permitting.

Visitors need a wagon to haul the oversized cargo that grows in Dehn’s Pumpkins’ patch: though the smallest pumpkins start at 1 pound, some tip the scales at 80. After guests pluck their ideal pumpkin straight from the vine, they can snag carving tips or even knives from a local artist who demonstrates jack-o'-lantern skills. In addition to the bright orange squash, the farm also offers decorative indian corn, cornstalk bundles, hay bales, and squash and pumpkins harvested specifically for baking. Cornstalks sway in a 5-acre maze—this year etched with the shape of a tractor—and shelled corn fills a huge pit where kids dig and play with beach toys or the wheelbarrow they always carry with them. Guests also can enjoy hayrides; greet the goats, cows, calves, and dogs that live on the farm; and jump in the Pumpkin Jumper bounce house.

Designed by prolific course architect Joel Goldstrand, Rum River Hills Golf Club's 18-hole course weaves through 6,308 yards of water-lined fairways and undulating greens. Water hazards present challenges from the very first tee, where aggressive players may choose to lay up or drive balls over a pond to cut the corner off of a fairway that dog-legs right, setting up a favorable approach onto a green 413 yards away. Rum River Hills tests players’ short game with undulating greens that take golf balls through more sharp turns than a golf cart driving through a grocery store.

A full-length driving range allows players to warm up before they take to the course, and the club's PGA instructors offer lessons for those looking to improve their swing mechanics. After a day at the links, course patrons can drop in at McDuff's Restaurant, which serves an expansive menu of salads, burgers, steaks, and pizzas. Inside the sunlit dining room, 11 TVs let guests catch up with live sports, while outdoor patio seating caters to those hoping to reverse engineer the technology of the lawn mowers maintaining the course below.

Course at a Glance:

  • Designed by Joel Goldstrand
  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Length of 6,308 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 71.0 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 117 from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options

While other athletic clubs hibernate, Majestic Oaks welcomes Old Man Winter's frigid embrace with snow-savvy cheer. Played using golf clubs and a fuzzy tennis ball, snow golf provides nine holes of family-spanning fun and takes less than an hour to complete. Traversing the course, most of whose holes are under 100 yards, provides a reason to enjoy a brisk winter afternoon with friends while getting some light exercise. Hot chocolate and coffee (a value of $1.50 each) can keep your foursome of snow-golfers warm or can be used to punish snowmen who overindulge in mulligans.

Since 1995, the Bunker Park Stable staff and their trusty team of horses have hosted a wide array of equine-based activities including lessons, trail rides, hay rides, and day camps. The stable’s well-appointed facilities reside inside the 1,600-acre Bunker Hills Regional Park and act as a hub for the vast network of trails that passes through the park’s grassy meadows and vast forests of pine and oak. Horse-top visitors may witness native park wildlife such as white-tail deer, sandhill cranes, and hawks and overhear songbirds as they belt out choruses in the hopes of becoming the next superstar discovered in a forest, just like Celine Dion.
