Ginny and Mark Taylor spent their college years chasing artistic pursuits—she majored in fine arts, while he tinkered with wood, clay, and stained-glass projects. As the owners of IDEA Studio, the Taylors combine their artistic expertise with a passion for working with children, a concept that’s given way to sessions where kids and adults can practice their beloved crafts or sample new disciplines. During age-appropriate six-week KidzArt sessions, youngsters from pre-K to middle school use more than 60 mediums such as watercolors, clay, and clocks melted in easy-bake ovens to construct two-, three-, and four-dimensional works. IDEA Studio also hosts personalized sessions for homeschooled children, one-week summer camps, and Kidz Nights, where youngsters enjoy themed lessons while snacking on healthy foods. Adults, meanwhile, can take their own artistic journey in classes and workshops with subjects that include drawing, stained glass, and sculpture, or they can work on long-term projects during open studio hours.

The white wings of the FPNA A22 Valor slice through clouds as they soar high above the Georgia wilderness. With a cruising speed of 100 miles per hour, the small, agile plane is ideally suited for new pilots. Having already been trained on the ground, these pilots feel pretty comfortable behind the controls, but there's something to be said for the rush of steering an actual plane for the first time. Adding to that rush is the fact that both of the plane's doors can remain open during the flight, allowing in crisp air and skydiving hitchhikers. Atmosphere Aviation's team of professional instructors trains students at any level of experience, so you can come back after your first flight to hone your piloting chops or rent a plane for a joyride through the sky.

The Savannah Beerathon mimics a marathon with a tongue-in-cheek lineup of 26 bar hops, each location pouring a different featured craft brew. The Savannah Morning News profiled the event, which taps into the city's burgeoning craft-beer culture for an eclectic tasting tour.

Each venue boasts beer specials—though the brews themselves are not included with admission as per Georgia law. The suds range from Left Hand milk stout and Blue Point toasted lager to Sam Adams' Octoberfest. Participants meet new friends and new beers throughout the day, raising a glass to good taste and soaking up the sounds of live bands and DJs. The organizers encourage the wearing of team outfits and welcome designated drivers and sober pack-horses to join their friends at the venues.
