All Fired Up is a great place to go on a rainy day when you are cooped up in the house with the kids. It is fun to get to come here and paint a piece of pottery any way you want to--even the very little kids can join in on this activity! The prices can be a little high here, but for a once-in-awhile activity, it isn't too bad. And, since it can be difficult to find things that young children can participate in, this is really great. They also offer classes and they can set up a party for you.
PROS: Fun for even young kids, exciting activity
CONS: Can be pricey
Maple Lakes Campgrounds is a great place to go when you just want to get away from everything. You can really rough it and do tent camping (though they do have toilets and showers, so you wouldn't have to rough it too hard), or you can take your motor home vehicle for a little more comfort because they do have electricity and water hook-ups available. Maple Lakes is better than just camping in the woods, too, because they have planned activities, a swimming pool, fishing, and a picnic shelter. The rates are quite reasonable, so this is a great spur-of-the-moment getaway.
PROS: Low rates, lots of things to do, great facilities

At Ohio Holistic Medicine, you have a lot of options for your health care, all of which are non-invasive. They offer acupuncture, which they are very skilled at, as well as Chinese Massage, and Biofeedback. The practicioners here work with you to manage your physical, mental, and emotional health on an individual basis--they actually take the time to sit and talk with you about your choices and what might work best for you and how to help you. Many of the services they offer can be somewhat costly, but that is generally the case with any holistic medicine center because much of it isn't covered by insurance. But, this center is willing to work with you to make payment arrangements so that you can get the care that you need.

CONS: Can be costly, like any holistic medicine center
