Daily Vacationer Jr: Linvilla Orchards: Fore the Planet!

Is it raining/snowing/cold again?? If you're looking for an engaging inside activity, look no further than Fore! the Planet, Linvilla Orchard's indoor mini-golf course.  It promises 18 holes of serious fun, and it definitely delivers.  With golf club sizes for everyone, Fore! the Planet can be a fun afternoon out with friends or a family event.  The game is suitable for almost all ages, but don't be fooled by the size - the course is trickier than it looks and those searching for a fulfilling competition will find it here (and those looking to just hit a ball around until it finally lands in a hole - any hole - will also find that here).
The course was put together by the Academy of Natural Sciences, making Fore! the Planet literally all about the planet from environmental issues to animal adaptation.  Each hole comes with a description and some educational info.  We'd advise not skipping the lessons, as they often hold the key on how to score better at various holes, plus they are fun and engaging in themselves.
Open until April 3th,  make sure that you schedule a day for this fantastic mini golf course!  Daily Vacationer Jr had a ton of fun attempting the course (we noticed an advantage with the kid-sized clubs...hmmmmm...), and we loved reading about and exploring the details at each hole.  Our absolute favorite holes were #6, Backyard Explorer, and #15, Spawning Salmon.  Hats off to Linvilla Orchards and the Academy of Natural Sciences - this is a great idea!
