    A PGA Mini Golf Tour

    I’m serious about this one. Choose a boardwalk, and tackle every mini golf course they have to offer. If you’re anything like me, you’ll get a good laugh at how you can never get a hole in one, or two, or three…you get it. Bring a group of friends and make a contest out of it. Loser buys everyone a round of drinks.

    You don’t have to shell out big bucks to enjoy a good old-fashioned game of baseball. A BlueClaws game is perfect for a family outing, date, or even just a way to chill out with friends. Don’t worry if you’re not exactly a baseball genius…baseball stadiums are home to some of the best food and beer.
