Need some excitement on a thursday night or saturday afternoon, pack the kids in the car and head over to the schererville golf and fun center. Play a round or two of minuture golf ( you can play more than one round as long as you don't turn your ball in by playing the 18th hole) There is always a good number of batting cages both baseball and softball. Go-Karts galore! They are kind of expensive for the Go-Karts but the golf and batting cages are reasonably priced. Also they have coupons every now and then in the Hammond Times newspaper or in local shopping flyers, cut those coupons out!
