"It's gotten to the point," hewrites, "where it seems like parents and children are emailing and textingeach other [even] more than they're talking."

But nowthat's starting to change. More and more families are looking for pastimes thatlet them interact in Real Life. They're turning to fun activities that bring kidsand grownups together.

Not Your Grandfather's Mini Golf

Miniaturegolf has come a long way from its origins in the early 20th century. Back then,the typical mini-golf course consisted of a simple putting green made of crude artificialturf - with a few small hills, curves, and banks designed to test players' ingenuitywithout over-taxing their skills.

Modern mini golf is dramaticallydifferent. It evengoes far beyond the iconic courses of the 1950s and '60s, with their familiar windmills,castles, and wishing wells.

Today,miniature golf features elaborately themed displays and amazingly creativehazards. Not to mention a lot more challenge!
