Holiday Skate Center equips roller-skating enthusiasts of all ages with eight-wheeled action during themed skating sessions. Pairs of clean, rink-ready roller skates (a $3 value per pair) propel all ages of wheeled crusaders through Flashback Skate Night ($6 admission), a musical time warp featuring '70s, '80s, and '90s tunes, offered from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays. Age-specific skating sessions including Club Skate Night ($7.50 admission), offered on Friday nights for middle- and high-school-age students, and adult evening skate ($6.50 admission), a Wednesday-night event for ages 18 and older, are geared toward older ages and don’t necessarily include daytime activities such as the hokey pokey, the limbo, or naptime. Check out the website for a full schedule of roller-rink events. After ripping around the rink in an exact replication of Ben Franklin's first trip to Paris, hit up the snack bar for complimentary large sodas (a $2 value each) and bags of popcorn (a $1.25 value each) to refuel.
Today's fast-paced society asks us to race to the water cooler, the cupcake table, and the closet that stores sweaty wrestling singlets.

At Orange County Riding Academy, equestrian experts and the un-horsed alike can build skills with the help of the experienced staff and gentle school horses. Novices?including everyone from children as young as six to adults who have never ridden?start in private lessons to establish a solid base of balance, control, and confidence. From there, folk graduate to group lessons, trail riding, or introductory barrel racing classes where they can further polish skills. When not in the saddle, students also learn ground training, which extends from leading and tying the horses to clipping their manes.
