At Berryland Farms of Texas, the early bird gets the blackberries. They also get the peaches, blueberries, and vegetables, which all grow on the you-pick-it farm starting in May. Showing up in the morning guarantees a fresh harvest for your basket—by the afternoon, it's smart to call ahead to find out whether or not the day's fruits have already been plucked.

In autumn, the farm transforms into a fall weekend escape for families, where pumpkins dot the field and visitors wind through a challenging corn maze. Adults and kids alike will enjoy pumpkin bowling, face painting, and delectable snacks, and there's often live music. Take a hayrides to enjoy a leisurely drive around the landscape. For faster travel, head to the top of a 75-foot hill slide or politely ask one of the pumpkins to turn into a motorcycle.

In 1998, the clack of billiards balls met the clink of cold beers at the first Fast Eddie’s Sports Tavern and Social Clubs in Amarillo. Since then, 17 more Fast Eddie's locations have sprung up across Texas and Louisiana, each letting guests sink corner shots at 8- and 9-foot Olhausen pool tables while sharing a few drinks and snacks such as deep-fried hot dogs. Beyond the felt, home runs and touchdowns play out on multiple big-screen TVs as darts fly into targets and foosball tables re-create the exciting theatrics of gymnasts struggling to play soccer.

Entering their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest “4 Times the Fun” North American tour, the Globetrotters will add a new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet further than the official three-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian. See the arch-nemesis Generals try to keep up as the Harlem hardwood sorcerers evade gravity’s oppressive clutches and court clairvoyants distribute unassailable alley-oops. Youngsters can learn about the benefits of teamwork while laughing along with the jovial jocks as they perform classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti.

At Camp Niwana, youth and teens have spent their summers enjoying activities centered around environmental education, conflict resolution, and fostering leadership skills since 1953. Beneath a canopy of towering oaks and pines in the Big Thicket area, Camp Niwana invites campers to explore new things, learn new skills, and meet new friends outside the ones they have made back home playing xBox.

Much like the kids themselves, the camp has evolved over the years, too. In addition to its classic camp activities, it currently offers more modern experiences. And Camp Niwana doesn't limit their adventures to just the summer. Throughout the year, families and groups can visit the property to have some fun of their own and use the facilities for their own family activities, all while staying in electricity-equipped cabins with a full bathhouse but no air-conditioning units.

If you're not paying attention at Royal Purple Raceway, you might miss the race. That's because the venue features a quarter-mile drag strip where racers accelerate from 0 to 300 mph in four seconds. Built in 1988, the straightaway now attracts national NHRA drag races and shares the spotlight with a newer quarter-mile dirt track. Although the raceway attracts national events, including the annual Super Chevy auto show, its owners and operators, the Angel family, hail from Texas and instinctively support and preserve the local culture.
