Two lit, outdoor arenas and one large covered arena occupy Rosehill Farm’s serene country setting, where owner and three-decade veteran Carla Winters spends her time instructing riders and caring for horses. Carla’s lesson program centers on the disciplines of hunt seat and dressage, both of which she teaches on top of the basics of proper equitation. On either learning track, the she tailors the lessons to individual riders’ skill sets and personal goals, be they earning ribbons in shows or becoming the first rider to wade across the English Channel. The farm also holds camps, during which youngsters enjoy two lessons and free ride time each day.
Feet patter across three information-packed floors stacked inside the Ocean Star, a former drilling rig that spends its retirement as a museum and education center on Galveston's Pier 19. After two decades drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, the rig has since been revamped and outfitted with interactive models and displays that illustrate the story of offshore oil, gas, and the energies that lurk beneath the world's oceans. Visitors can tap into videos for explanations of drilling, geology, and seismic topics, or stand next to scale models of production platforms. In addition to its lineup of eye-popping sites, Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig Museum and Education Center harbors ongoing exhibits showcasing the industry's careers, history, and safety measures. Self-guided tours seven days a week enable guests to explore the rig's nooks at their own pace, while an onboard staff stands by to answer questions and courteously laugh at all petroleum-related knock-knock jokes.
To a ship at sea, a lighthouse signals a safe passage. But the beacon at The Kemah Lighthouse Maze isn't so reliable. A miniature lighthouse topped with a winking mermaid marks the entrance to a winding labyrinth, but once you're deep inside the tangle of corridors, simply following the light will inevitably result in a face full of wall. Instead, explorers must rely on their innate sense of direction, their wits, and their talking companion bird to navigate. After you've made your way to the other side of the maze, you can kick back in the park next door for a well-earned picnic.
The jungle would be a safer place if the chin-high grass, towering trees, and wild animals were painted on the walls and everything three-dimensional was inflatable. This dream of a danger-free nature preserve comes to life at Jump N Jungle. Voted the Best Kids’ Party Place in the Bay Area Citizen Reader's Choice Awards, the jungle lets kids leap toward the rafters on inflatable jumpers, test the bounds of gravity on giant slides, and navigate an unending labyrinth of mazes and obstacle courses. Both locations play host to weekend birthday gatherings by supplying invitations, plates and plastic cutlery, as well as staff supervision in the party room and play areas. Additionally, its childcare services include an educational curriculum for toddlers and preschoolers, as well as before school and afterschool activities for older children.
