Rockin’ B Riding Club’s 2.5-acre ranch boasts an indoor and an outdoor arena as well as a network of wooded paths for private rides. These facilities are home to seven school horses, who help teach young riders equestrian basics during camps and lessons alongside veteran instructors. Using the Certified Horsemanship Association curriculum, teachers focus on the basics of English- or Western-style riding but also throw in lessons on how to groom horses and how to tell the difference between a mare and a tall four-legged table.

The longest-running regular-season college basketball tournament in the country, the Carrs/Safeway Great Alaska Shootout invites eight men's and four women's teams from across the country for an intense tournament packed into Thanksgiving weekend. In the 34th edition of the men's field, the Seawolves host such formidable foes as Murray State, who dribbled and dunked their way into last year's NCAA tournament, as well as New Mexico State and Southern Mississippi. Gents battle to climb the brackets in four days of play so fast-paced that games must be announced by professional auctioneers.

Eye Level takes its name—and its philosophy—from the story of an elementary school teacher who visited the Smithsonian and, oddly, knelt down in front of each painting. When a guard asked him why, he explained that he was bringing his kids there the next day, and wanted to see the paintings from their perspective. Eye Level's instructors share this focus on understanding students' viewpoints and needs. Whether they're teaching math, English, or Korean, they start sessions with a diagnostic test, which allows them to tailor the lesson to the child's skill level. The self-directed learning sessions end with student feedback, which allows tutors to further customize their future lessons.
