A gravity-defying wonderland built from six inflatable playgrounds, Leapin' Lizards lets kids ages 2–12 unleash their inner wallabies. The Jurassic Adventureland transports children back to a time when dinosaurs bounced the earth, and the Safari Adventure sends kiddies bounding about the Serengeti. Elsewhere, parents can hold tykes' hands through the toddler playland or Crazy Caterpillar while older children vault over gumdrops in the Candy Land Village, riding the sugar high all the way to the ceiling-high slide. For everyone's physical and olfactory safety, socks are required throughout the play area and are available for $2 a pair if you forget.

The screen-printing sultans at Celebritees have concocted a trio of T-shirt designs to help dress green-minded revelers for Savannah's 2011 St. Patrick's Day festivities. Declare your love of all things sudsy and shamrocked by donning a light green tee with a screen-printed six-pack of sweet shamrock soda and the slogan "Add fizz to your St. Patty's Day!" or show your support for colors with proper names by choosing between two Kelly green options—a classic four-leaf clover decal with the date "March 17th" printed on the back or a collection of festive cups advertising "Savannah's St. Patrick's Day Shenanigans.” Tees are available in sizes small through extra large. Buyers should call or email firstname.lastname@example.org with their desired size and design, and allow three business days for shipping.

Although instructors Travis Clark and Jon Gillespie lead Southeast Photo Adventures's workshops and excursions, they share the teaching load with the shores of Tybee Island and the depths of Cloudland Canyon. Students shoot shoulder-to-shoulder with instructors amid these sprawls of striking Southeastern scenery, whether they're enrolled in 2.5-hour workshops, Foto Field Trips open to workshop grads, or weekend-long adventures. The field-trip-style outings are open to all skill levels, but beginners can also enhance their expertise in introductory courses on Photoshop, digital photography, and DSLR cameras' complex settings, which control everything from shutter speed to the tiny red light bulb behind each of our eyes.
