Stray Boots is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by clues, trivia, and riddles. They operate in cities across the country, dividing them into special themed tours that contain the historical sites, local areas of interest, or eccentric child mayors unique to each city. During the explorations, clues point the way to cultural hot spots, which Stray Boots communicates via their official mobile app. At least one player on the team will need an iPhone or Android phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most tours take two to three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aquacentric scrapbooks.

Baton Rouge Bead Company connects customers with the materials and guidance necessary to discover their inner artisans during small, intimate beading classes. Taught exclusively on Saturday mornings by well-schooled bauble buffs, the Stringing Basics classes include all the materials necessary to construct an original necklace, bracelet, and pair of earrings to take home. Reservations fill each session with a maximum of 10 aspiring adornment makers who gather around a single table for lessons in color theory, clasping, and choosing non-offensive stones. Students may draw from the shop’s bank of designs and combinations or string freely to create jewelry that represents a lifelong struggle to overcome patterns.

World Coffee keeps caffeine-consumers running smoothly with a saccharine selection of coffee, tea, espresso, latte, cappuccino, and cider drinks. Avant garde guests can break free of stereotypical brews, adding up to two shots of syrup to concoct such heady mixes as the chocolate-covered-cherries latte, seasoned with Ghiradelli chocolate and cherry flavorings. Earthy options include the trail-mix latte—infused with shots of almond, hazelnut, and chocolate— and the sugar-free zebra steamer pays homage to the world's most confusing-looking equine by muddling sugar-free white and milk-chocolate syrups in warm, frothy milk. The shop's free WiFi allows gulpers to send unlimited apology emails to former gym teachers until closing time.

Led by tattooed frontman Josh Todd, Buckcherry busts out hard-rocking anthems and soaring paeans to partying. After disbanding in the early aughts, the band came back with a vengeance with its album 15, earning a Billboard Top 10 spot for the introspective "Sorry." Black Butterfly in 2008 brought further fame with the ode to hedonistic dissipation and melancholy reflection on empty water bottles, "Too Drunk." Todd's laid-back vocals often slide swiftly into a volcanic yowl, backed by a double helping of power chords and fist-pumping arpeggios courtesy of guitar duo Keith Nelson and Stevie D. After placing fourth on the 10th season of American Idol, up-and-comer James Durbin joins the evening with music that spices his voice's octave-hopping technical mastery with raw, churning guitar and a single bay leaf, hidden somewhere onstage.

The guides at Cajun Tours and Cruises lead small groups on expansive adventures through the history and architecture of New Orleans. Experts meet groups at their hotels, houses, or couch forts at 9 a.m. to venture out on citywide jaunts. Eyes explore prime examples of Southern architecture, including Creole townhouses with asymmetrical arched openings and stucco exteriors, and shotgun houses with covered front porches and lacey Victorian ornamentation. Camera wielders click photos, freezing moments in the French Quarter, Jackson Square, and St. Louis Cathedral before wandering past the site where the levees broke during Hurricane Katrina. In City Park, guides dole out refreshments at the Pavilion, recounting how the sculpture garden was donated and how it once came to life on a full moon. After picnics, visitors hop rides on streetcars and cruise down St. Charles Avenue to take in more beautiful New Orleans structures, returning to their home bases at 4 p.m.
