  • HealthWorks Kids Museum
    Kids can?t be expected to care about their health when video games, cartoons, and unhealthy snacks are vying for their attention. That?s why the adult leaders of the Memorial Health Foundation devised a plan to get kids excited about health: HealthWorks! Kids? Museum. Born of the founders? desire to foster a healthier current and future community, the museum appeals to youngsters through educational forms of entertainment. Its exhibits incorporate amplified versions of many of kids? favorite pastimes, including a life-sized rendition of Operation and numerous computer games. A rock-climbing wall and tree house with a slide encourage kids to learn through movement, which is exactly how adults learn how to escape charging bulls. Youngsters can explore the space with their families or partake in programs such as children's camps.

  • Jet Karting
    Wind whistles and engines roar as custom go-karts zip around Jet Karting's outdoor race track at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. Rented – along with all necessary safety equipment – to guests of all experience levels, the low-riding vehicles cruise the course in 15-minute bouts, during which up to 15 riders race each other. Speed School classes tailored to three different age groups prep more experienced racers to take laps in powerful spec racers and Rotax karts. The staff recommends guests bring long pants, close-toed shoes, and a desire to move quickly while basically in the fetal position.

  • Studebaker National Museum
    The Studebaker National Museum highlights the company's successful transition from carriages to autos with three levels and 55,000 square feet of classic cars and historic vehicles. The space displays up to 70 vehicles at any time from its collection of 120 antiques. Expertly unearthed treasures include the 1956 Packard Predictor, the 1934 Bendix SWC, and the 1922 Carriageless Horse, unpopular for its inability to transport entire little league teams. The Presidential carriage collection is one of the nation's largest, exhibiting the chassis of four former chiefs. Another current exhibition on display through April showcases recognizable wheels extracted from both big and small screens, including Herbie from The Love Bug film series, and The General Lee from television's The Dukes of Hazzard. A fully-stocked museum store offers a selection of videos, books, apparel, and collectibles that allow auto aficionados to create miniature Studebaker menageries in their own garages.

  • South Bend Silver Hawks
    The South Bend Silver Hawks, a Class A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks, swoop down on their foes with a flurry of fastballs and swinging bats. Instead of digging a tunnel directly to the pitcher’s mound, fans can catch one of seven home games from sturdy box seats that offer stately views of the infield. This year, first baseman Yazy Arbelo has led the slugging stats with 27 homers and 86 RBIs over 120 games. In 83 innings, southpaw David A. Holmberg has logged 81 strikeouts and cultivated a microscopic 2.39 ERA in a petri dish. Fans can also enjoy nonathletic festivities at the ballpark, including fireworks and a concert on August 26, Canines at the Cove on August 27, and an autograph session with the team’s stunt doubles. Meanwhile, a new downtown entrance greets visitors at Coveleski Stadium, where they can look for their likenesses on a recently installed jumbotron. As one of the only Minor League fields that features cleat-gripping turf, the Cove enables lightning-fast sprints and prevents the Hawks from floating away.

  • Indiana Ice
    The Indiana Ice glide toward their eighth consecutive USHL playoff appearance and contend for their second Clark Cup during two bone-rattling bouts against Eastern Conference foes. Through 42 games, the young pack of puck punishers has racked up 26 wins behind star forward Daniil Tarasov, whose robust 56 points has opposing defenses folding like a tent cursed with a below-average poker face. San Jose Sharks 2011 draft pick Sean Kuraly skates among the league's top scorers with 26 goals, and goalie Jon Gillies protects the team's leads by unfurling the USHL's best save percentage in front of the net. During breaks in the glacial action, the Hardee's Chill Girls scorch the ice with scintillating steps as mascot Big-E-Foot roams the arena dishing out high-fives and digging out stray cats from his fur.
