Kids Ahoy transports kids to a fantastic land beneath the sea, embracing them in wall-to-wall murals swimming with images of pirates, mermaids, and ocean life. Amid the watery decor, safe and age-appropriate activities beckon little ones to roam, bounce, and butterfly stroke through the air. Choruses of laughter echo in crawling tubes, moon bounces, and plastic cars. Basketball hoops await free throws, and numerous wavy slides shoot downward from plastic play sets. The staff also creates a safe, soft environment for babies in the Baby Corner and designates swings specifically for toddlers.
Kids Ahoy's imaginative setting is available for both open play and private festivities. During party packages, characters such as pirates delight guests with games while assistants paint faces in aquatic-theme designs inspired by fish fashion magazines.

Nestled amidst the greenery of Topanga Canyon, the Resort offers 5–7 hours of supervised outdoor playtime a day on six acres of open yards and trails. Dogs are segregated by size, so 2-pound Chaingun won't be able to pick on the bigger dogs. When night falls, fidos enjoy blissful dreams of fat, slow rabbits in a climate-controlled indoor shelter. The Resort provides scrumptious dog food, but you can provide your own if your mutt lives exclusively on saffron-infused truffle risotto. Owned and operated by a licensed guide-dog trainer, Topanga Pet Resort allows your canine companion to come home slightly more erudite than when he left, or at least liable to request opera music during belly rubs.
For nine days in July, the annual theater festival stages an eclectic collection of international plays, premieres, and readings. This season’s lineup represents the finest union of worldly performances since Les Misérables: As Performed by Members of the U.N. The lineup includes the U.S. premiere of Ireland’s Gare St. Lazare Players’ production of The End and Israel’s Orto-Da Theatre Group’s production of Stones, a movement piece in which the troupe’s mime artists depict a living statue that commemorates Jewish warriors of the Warsaw Ghetto. Full descriptions of the season can be found here; consult the season schedule for performance details. Please note that some performances are free throughout the festival's run.
