You'll board at pier 9 of the South Shore Harbour Resort on the eponymous FantaSea, a 117-foot glitz-class glamcruiser equipped with two decks, two bars, custom brasswork, 42-inch televisions, Doppler 5,000 sequin-sensing radar, and a massive, startlingly nude pink-unicorn figurehead. Also, the FantaSea has never killed a merman. See here for cruise dates and times.
When Kelly of Kelly's Kayaks gave up her desk job, she turned to what she really loved: kayaking. Now she spends her days on the creeks, rivers, and lakes around League City. As a guide certified in CPR and first aid, she leads groups paddling through the waves during beach excursions or searching for wildlife such as egrets and cranes on the calm waters of Heritage Park. Kelly's Kayaks also rents watercraft by the hour to help explorers with an independent streak find their own way on the water.
The first time Lisa Leonard took a Zumba class, it was the fastest hour of her life. She’d had a blast, and it inspired her to become a certified instructor. In her classes, she leads two types of Zumba routines: traditional fitness, which fuses latin dance and exercise, and toning classes that incorporate light free weights. With each version, students learn moves that, like rickshas, are easy to follow yet still burn a lot calories.
Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.

Within Space City Rock Climbing's 5,000-square-foot gym, a team of seasoned climbers recreate a variety of scalable surfaces—vertical faces, overhangs, or a neighbor's brick siding among them—to challenge climbers of every experience level. While climbing, 23 belay stations sit atop 25-foot-high routes, giving guests an opportunity to sharpen their top-roping skills. For a different kind of challenge, the gym's walls also provide opportunities for lead climbing and bouldering. When not supervising open climbs, Space City's staff organizes camps and group events including birthday parties and lock-ins. A family-friendly operation, Space City's facility caters to kids with Moonwalk inflatable bounce houses and slides.
