Call the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge a paradox: It's a Superfund cleanup site and a haven for - among more than 300 species - the American bald eagle. It's also right down the highway from the airport. (303) 289-0232 www.rma.army.mil/refuge/refgfrm.html

Like to practice your swing in the dead of a Northern European winter? Then take a quick hop over to Deutscher Indoor Golf Verband, or DIGV for short. Use the robotic tutor to improve your top swing, and then show your stuff on a virtual course (Pebble Beach, anyone?). Practice chipping and putting on the greens. Take a lesson from one of the on-site pros. Then unwind at the lounge or browse the pro shop. Just like real golf, only warmer. 011-49-6543-50-57-0, www.digv.org
