The façades of Galveston homes may not appear menacing by day, but when night falls, pitch-black shadows hint at the secrets hidden inside. Tracy Richardson, a medium, paranormal investigator, and the owner of Texas Ghost Tours, unearths these lingering evils during her two-hour walking tours of the city’s haunted sites. As a member of the Haunted Society, National Paranormal Society, and Galveston Historical Foundation, Tracy’s knowledge of the local lore is nearly as daunting as the task her tours tackle: to educate visitors about the existence of paranormal activity. After sunset, she leads the way to nearby buildings imprinted with past horrors, and the dilapidated Normandy Inn. She dives even deeper into the supernatural during paranormal investigations, during which she dons a bed sheet and a Sherlock Holmes hat.

Active learning is at the heart of Kids Bloom's mission. This means they facilitate intellectual development in children through exciting classes that forego the old, ineffective means of education—lectures, quizzes, and rote memorization. Instead, Kids Bloom kindles creativity and critical thinking with classes that help illuminate educational material by focusing on fun and interactive materials. Take, for example, the robotics classes—kids build drumming monkeys, airplanes, and remote controlled devices, all the while learning science and engineering without realizing it. Other classes focus on the arts, languages, and science, but in a way that's at once entertaining and instructive. Instructors strive to help children tap into problem solving, critical thinking, and creative skills while fostering teamwork and fine motor skills.

The jungle would be a safer place if the chin-high grass, towering trees, and wild animals were painted on the walls and everything three-dimensional was inflatable. This dream of a danger-free nature preserve comes to life at Jump N Jungle. Voted the Best Kids’ Party Place in the Bay Area Citizen Reader's Choice Awards, the jungle lets kids leap toward the rafters on inflatable jumpers, test the bounds of gravity on giant slides, and navigate an unending labyrinth of mazes and obstacle courses. Both locations play host to weekend birthday gatherings by supplying invitations, plates and plastic cutlery, as well as staff supervision in the party room and play areas. Additionally, its childcare services include an educational curriculum for toddlers and preschoolers, as well as before school and afterschool activities for older children.
