  • Texas Outland Fishing
    Texas Outland Fishing's owner and chief scout, Mike, boasts more than three decades of fishing experience, garnered in lakes, rivers, and streams around the world. He's hunted Alaskan king salmon on the Deshka River, pulled giant striper from the waters of Arkansas, and hooked saddam bass in Baghdad during his tours of duty overseas. One of his favorite fish to pursue, though, remains the Texas alligator gar. The giants can grow up to seven feet in length, weighing over 150 pounds and shopping only in the river's Big and Tall sections.? Mike guides gar-seeking group excursions from afar, quietly stalking through the waters to spot the animals. He then contacts the guide and tour group, maneuvering them in boats to the best fishing spots along the bank. Visitors arrive, then cast their lines, setting their hands at the reel. Once a fish is hooked, the battle begins; should the angler win, he or she gets a photo and bragging rights, since Mike only runs catch-and-release boat trips. Of course, wrestling with such a fish isn't the only thing to enjoy on one of Mike's cruises: the Trinity River which he sails weaves through scenic landscape and one underwater gift shop stocked with souvenir muddy sticks.

  • Mayborn Planetarium
    Plummeting into a hurricane?s eye. Tunneling through San Andreas?s interior. Zipping in and out of colliding galaxies. At Mayborn Science Theater, these sorts of adventures are par for the course. Here, wonders of the natural world beam onto a 60-foot digital screen that wraps around an entire 180-seat theater, creating immersive educational experiences. Screened during weekends and weekday matinees, science-minded shows focus on diverse, family-friendly topics such as stars and tropical reefs. Its laser light shows, on the other hand, eschew education for spectacle, dazzling audiences with 3D graphics and 15,000 watts of digital sound. Outside the dome, Mayborn continues educating visitors at its gallery. Amidst rotating displays on subjects such as rocks and minerals, the Vice Space station showcases Hubble photographs and shares updates from the Mars rover. The exhibit?s recent acquisitions even include tiles from actual space shuttles, as well as tiles from actual Mahjong games played by astronauts sitting in NASA waiting rooms.
