Inspired by their three children, Lisa and Andy Curwin decided to create a youth center that would offer kids entertainment and education under the same roof. An elevated climbing structure dominates the multihued, easy-to-monitor space that eventually sprang from the Curwins' collective imagination. All its slides lead to the center of the building, allowing parents to keep an eye on multiple children while sitting at brightly colored tables and getting pinkies in shape for upcoming tea parties. The room is packed with plenty of other play-ready games and equipment—bounce houses where youngsters can burn off energy and break through the space-time continuum; skee-ball and basketball stations that boost hand-eye coordination and churn out redeemable prize tickets; and skate and tricycle rinks where tykes can establish new recess allegiances. Kango reinforces its play center with a full-service academy that provides programs for young children from infants to kindergartners and ensures visitors stay properly fueled and hydrated by stocking a snack bar with burgers, fries, fruit, and sweets.

In 1872, Susan B. Anthony performed a courageous act. She voted, determined to prove that the 14th and 15th Amendments gave women the legal right to vote. The immediate result wasn't encouraging, though?a US marshal arrested her in her parlor, and then a federal judge fined her $100. But despite the resistance, Anthony's volition continued to inspire the suffrage movement, not to mention the abolitionist movement and the fight for equal educational opportunities for women. More than a century later, the Susan B. Anthony Museum & House educates visitors on her life?from the many relationships that impacted her thinking, such as her friendship with slave-turned-abolitionist Frederick Douglass, to her acts of civil disobedience, such as refusing to pay the $100 fine for voting. The home, where Anthony lived from 1866 to 1906 in what were arguably her most politically active years, has undergone extensive restoration to look as it did when Anthony lived there. This ongoing effort has breathed new life into everything from the third-floor workspace, to the house?s foundation. Designated a National Historic Landmark, the home welcomes guests for guided tours and also offers a range of programs, inspiring individuals to continue working for equal rights for all.

At Clubhouse Fun Center, everything seems to be in motion. Go-karts zip and roar around an outdoor speedway, arcade games spit out streams of tickets, and dimpled balls roll over the greens of two 18-hole mini-golf courses. Visitors join in the commotion by hopping into single, double, or rookie go-karts to race each other or attempt to catch up with their own shadows on a track featuring a double-fly-over bridge. Nearby, the mini-golf courses lure putters with a sparkling cerulean waterfall, a giraffe stretching its neck high into the air, and the pink and purple towers of a lilliputian castle. Before hitting the arcade, guests can refuel with snacks or lunch at the Treehouse Cafe or the Sugar Shack, where they can plan out future birthday parties to take place in treasure-cove- or treehouse-themed rooms.

Every fall, families flock to Lehigh Valley Outpost and spend entire days enjoying seasonal activities. Located on the historic Stevens family farm?and with the former Lehigh Valley railroad running through its property?the Outpost has things to do on both sides of the Lehigh Valley Trail. Two corn mazes headline the list of activities, daring groups to test their navigational skills. Visitors can also lose themselves in numerous other experiences: they can pick the winners of duck races, launch vegetables from a corn cannon, and even search for the perfect pumpkin to carve or use as their replacement at jury duty. Tired legs can also catch a break aboard hay rides and a cow train.
