If you like your feline friends as much as you like your caffeine buzz, a cat café will be nothing short of a heaven. Drink a cappuccino surrounded by a cat (or five). A purr-fect activity for a Saturday.

storm chase

Head over to Tornado Alley late in the summer and look Mother Nature straight in the eye. It’s a risky activity, but certainly, it’s an adventure that will give you an adrenaline rush like no other.
