Inside the family-owned indoor playground of HippoHopp, kids glide down slides, explore playhouses, and navigate their way through obstacles courses. Free air hockey and foosball keep kids of all ages busy, and play castles and age-appropriate activities entertain youngsters in the area reserved only for toddlers. The facility buzzes with a variety of structures that encourage sensory-play as well as motor skill and social development. All of these play perks have earned HippoHopp the 2012 and 2013 title of Best Party & Event Planning Place in Atlanta, as deemed by Kudzu.

While mini minds keep busy with excitement, free WiFi and magazines are available to parents, who join their children at the bistro-style café for healthy snacks such as mango peach smoothies for breakfast, fresh-ground fair-trade coffee served weekday mornings until 10:30 AM with biscotti. Healthy choices for kids include organic, gluten-free, and diary-free menu items. Along with encouraging health-conscious exercise in kids, the staff at HippoHopp maintains an eco-conscious space by cleaning its facility with nontoxic, biodegradable products.

Led by founder Captain Britt, the sea-savvy crew of UnReel Expeditions unlocks the beauty of the rivers and ocean around Savannah aboard their versatile fleet of anglers, speedboats, and luxury cruisers. Dolphin-spotting tours give passengers a hull-side view of the playful cetaceans as they scamper through the water and shout obscenities in their hideous dolphin language. Savannah history tours regale sea goers with stories of the port's venerable past punctuated by gorgeous views of Georgia's oldest city. For long-form aquatic adventures, offshore fishing trips run up to 12 hours, giving anglers a chance to bag such fish as snapper, tuna, sea bass, and sharks. Alternatively, private charters put lovebirds in full face of neon sunsets or let parties customize their own sightseeing tours.

The third annual Antebellum Trail Pilgrimage offers patrons the chance to unearth the past with myriad events and activities scattered throughout seven historic communities: Athens, Watkinsville, Madison, Eatonton, Milledgeville, Old Clinton, and Macon. The 100-mile trail zigzags pilgrims from city to city, offering self-guided excursions ideal for self-directed murmurs of informational tidbits. The events, museum visits, private tours of historic homes, and other activities featured in the five-day pilgrimage itinerary give visitors a glimpse of historic Georgia. Pass-holders also have access to authentic battle sites, where they can trace the steps of soldiers and reenact bayonet-limbo contests. Most locations are open, rain or shine, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

With a resume that includes ballet and rock-climbing experience, Amber Monson took naturally to the graceful art of aerial silks. She founded Sky Gym as a place to train herself and others in her most beloved pastime, and ultimately, her venture paid off.

When she's not training and performing with other aerialists all over the world—including some from Cirque du Soleil—she passes on her skills to new students, helping them discover new levels of strength and grace. Besides aerial silks, she keeps students elevated with classes such as trapeze, sky yoga, and lyra—a ceiling-mounted hoop in which students spin after being dunked by their favorite NBA player. “I can’t decide which is more fulfilling to me, performing aerial or teaching it," she says on her website. Nonetheless, she continues,"I am incredibly grateful to my students and my trainers for allowing to make aerial dance my life."

From February 17–20, the sixth annual Macon Film Festival (MaGa) will flicker frames of independent and artistic films across the avid irises of movie-goers. With submissions from more than 10 countries and a gaggle of genres including narrative feature, documentary, experimental, and animation, the deciding jurors will critique scripts, scrutinize cinematography, and measure stars’ performances by their solar mass. Each poignant picture selected for the festival is showcased at one of three viewing venues: Cox Capitol Theatre, the Douglass Theatre, and the Macon Marriott City Center, each within walking distance of their fellow forums. Arrive 20 minutes early to screenings to help ensure seating, as passes do not guarantee admission.

When you walk into Jeronimo! and see the massive, inflatable slides and bounce houses, you'll understand why the open area resounds with children's laughter and squeals of delight. Here, kids can jump, climb, and maneuver through the colorful structures to their hearts' content, the thought of town criers announcing bedtime far from their minds. For youngsters aged 2 and younger, there's a separate, soft play area with a smaller bounce castle. All inflatables and toys are cleaned daily to ensure kids' health and safety.

Parents can sip fresh coffee or tea while they surf the web on one of the facility's computers. When the jumping is done, kids and adults head next door to send golf balls around transportation-themed obstacles at the indoor Jeronimo! and Putt 'N Play course. The center also boasts a dance floor and rock-climbing wall that turn parties into adventures and rents out inflatable slides, castles, and water mazes to liven up at-home events.
