5. An Oddball Day

The National Croquet Center  

Unpack your Waspiest green pants and pink Lacoste shirt, grab a mallet, and join the social set at the National Croquet Center, the largest (ten acres) croquet course in the world. Free group lessons are offered to the public every Saturday at 10 a.m.; if you’re lucky, you may be taught by club director and four-time national champion Archie Peck. Afterward, sit outside on the covered veranda and relax with a refreshing wine spritzer, or grab lunch in the clubhouse and hobnob with the croquet cognoscenti over tuna melts. Make a good impression and you may be invited back for twilight croquet and game night.
