The diverse team of instructors at Key Element Learning are serious about catering to each of their students' unique interests, strengths, and needs, whether they're still in diapers or entering middle school. That's why their educational programs are so eclectic—the classes range from academic subjects such as reading and science to the more creative topics of art and cooking to ensure kids will find a class to spark their curiosity. In order to give students the best lessons possible, they also pull from popular, time-honored educational franchises such as The Language Workshop for Children, where native speakers immerse children in foreign languages through games, songs, and colorful visual aids. And Music Together instills babies, toddlers, and preschoolers with skills for singing in tune and keeping a beat, helping them build confidence at school or become the first infant drummer for U2.

Towering above the little ones and built out of nets, slides, and soft, spongy surfaces, the indoor playground at Wild at Play sets a scene for an adventure. Although the play zone is indoors, Wild at Play lives up to its name in more ways than one. While kids gambol through the jungle gym, educators present hands-on learning experiences with actual wildlife, including red-eyed tree frogs, iguanas, and characters from Yo Gabba Gabba!. Beyond playtime, the center offers an enrichment program designed to prepare children for preschool, as well as summer camp, birthday parties, and private music lessons.

Inside the pitch-black Touch Tunnel, you're completely blind. On your hands and knees, you crawl forward, relying solely on your other senses to lead you through the darkness. The tunnel is only 80 feet long, but the exit might as well be miles away. After finally emerging safe (and sighted) from the most popular exhibit at Liberty Science Center, a family could still spend four more hours at the many hands-on attractions and experiences designed to enlighten visitors about the power and fun of science.

All told, Liberty Science Center houses a dozen galleries for interactive exploration. Visitors can perform surgery on a 3D robotic simulator; tip-toe across a steel girder hovering 18 feet in the air; or even connect with more than 90 different animals, including giant fish and a family of tamarin monkeys. At I Explore, young scientists ages 2?5 learn about the world around them while launching colorful balls into the air or using a xylophone made of stone slabs. When it's time to relax, the whole family can visit the largest IMAX dome theater in the U.S., which transports onlookers from outer space to the deepest depths of the oceans and just about everywhere in between.

Swimsuit-clad revelers sip drinks as they bob down the river in a flotilla of colorful tubes. Smoke rises from barbecue pits and campfires as the sun's light dims, and laughter and cheers ring out from grass volleyball games as an electronic mix of music echoes off of tree trunks. Over the course of Boobs & Tubes' outdoor party weekends, campers party and occasionally apologize for waking grizzly-bear neighbors in and around Croton Dam in Michigan or Skinners Falls in New York. Campers who come for a full weekend take shelter in tents to immerse themselves in the freedom of the wilderness. Boobs & Tubes' main goal is to bring together groups of people for outdoor enjoyment while also proving modern amenities such as showers, breakfast buffets, and live DJ sets with colorful light shows, much in the fashion of Davey Crockett's most fancy dinner parties
