Summer Glen Stables helps riders of all levels advance equine aptitude, be it through lessons or horse-focused camps and birthday parties. Situated on 10 idyllic, forested acres, the stable's fully enclosed arena allows natural light to rain down through the 30-foot ceilings, setting a cheery stage for both riding lessons and driving lessons. An instructor with more than 25 years of experience tailors riding instruction to each individual, covering the basics of horse care for beginners and guiding more advanced riders through their choice of disciplines, including dressage and showmanship. Summer Glens Stables offers students the use of its safe and skilled school horses, but charges no additional haul-in fee should riders want to bring their own, preventing untended steeds from throwing parties with keg-size salt licks.

The senior horses at The Horse Sense Riding School non-profit organization all arrive as rescues or unwanted steeds in need of a home. The indoor stable's positive, welcoming environment is a direct reflection of instructor Kat Barrett, whose unconditional love for equines began when she started riding at the age of 9. Since then, her passion has evolved into a career teaching the English and Western disciplines of horseback riding. Though proper technique is a focus of Kat's lessons, the true values she passes along are far less tangible, ranging from teamwork and communication skills to compassion—something she clearly has in spades.

Inside both of JJ Jump's two locations lies 7,000 to 12,000 square feet of inflatable challenges and bounce-based entertainment for children. The jousting arena settles sibling rivalries in a civilized and laugh-filled fashion, and giant slides send little ones safely toward the ground. But there's more to JJ Jump than jumping: each facility also boasts a creative play zone that is ripe with construction toys and a stage where children can let their imaginations run wild.

From time to time, the Clackamas facility morphs into JJ Extreme, where a kid wearing a harness can be suspended from the ceiling by a rope to swing back and forth under neon lights. Harnesses also come in handy for a slightly more competitive activity, during which youngsters zip past one another, running toward a basketball hoop and hoping to make a shot before a bungee cord pulls them each backward across a soft, inflatable mat.

Milwaukie Bowl's lanes are enjoyed by visitor's for everything from bowling lessons and leagues to kids' parties and glow-in-the-dark bowling.

Portland Aquarium, a December 2012 addition to Milwaukie, introduces visitors to thousands of waterborne species. Guests can slide their hands along the smooth flesh of a stingray or the knobby arms of a starfish or engage in staring contests with a leopard shark. Other planned exhibits include a jellyfish exhibit, a cold-water tank filled with fish native to Oregon's coast, and a rainforest-themed jungle gym for children. The tropical touch-tank woos visitors with its displays of vibrant-color aquatic life while amphibious wonders, including poison dart frogs, thrill visitors. Those seeking bigger thrills may hoist various pythons species?including a15-foot reticulated or 9-foot albino burmese snake?upon their shoulders or get their picture taken with a lorikeet. Landing-loving iguanas and panther chameleons also lurch around in the mix.

The attractions at Jabbersons Fun Center present a variety of ways for kids to have fun. In the arcade, guests can hop on a motorcycle or skateboard at game cabinets in hopes of earning a course record or impressing Tony Hawk. During bumper card rides, kids 5 and older cruise the track, crashing into families in friends for laughs along the way. The fun center also features a laser maze that shows kids what it might be like to be a cat burglar or a super spy as they sneak around light beams to get to the finish line.
