For all that South Side Riders does for people?from lessons to trail rides to children's pony parties?it's their horses that benefit the most. The saddle club rescues its horses from less-than-ideal situations across the state and trains them to become gentle, friendly animals that can fulfill the role of a riding companion or a model for saddle fashion shows. The noble steeds carry riders during lessons as well as trail rides, which either follow a path along neighboring streets on the Urban Ride or traverse acres of trails through Boundary Waters park.
Sparkles Family Fun Centers' Hiram and Kennesaw locations both follow a simple recipe: take as many kid-pleasing activities as humanly possible and blend them all together.

Meanwhile, free WiFi engages parents and tech-savvy little ones while other revelers bound through a multi-level playground with swings, slides and obstacle course. The nearby toddler play-zone?staffed with playground attendants who play along and chat with kids?also lets pint-sized patrons work off some energy. At the Couey cafe, guests sate appetites worked up by having so much fun.
Whether cuddling a tiny spotted piglet, nuzzling a baby goat, or cradling a fuzzy bunny, it's nearly impossible to suppress affectionate coos during a visit to Little Vine Petting Zoo. The zoo abounds with creatures of all kinds, from gentle donkeys to soft alpacas to one spiny hedgehog. Ponies and horses trot down the trail with wee riders on their backs, guests can opt for hay rides, and take pictures inside of rustic stagecoach. Ambling down a tree-lined road, the farm’s colorful train transports guests around the area. The cheerful farm staffers also host bashes onsite and can travel for on-location parties, bringing along ponies and animals to delight guests at birthday parties or confuse bridesmaids at weddings.
