LaTour is a new 18 hole championship golf course co-designed by PGA Tour Champion David Toms. The golf course boasts a 7232 layout featuring Mini-Verde ultradwarf greens with abundant water, pure white sand traps, and 75 acres of native grass areas.
Within the springy confines of Space Walk’s Vertical Rush, tykes ricochet like excited electrons across tunnels, slides, and climbing walls. The springy obstacle course is one of hundreds housed inside Space Walk of Greater New Orleans’ 43,000-square-foot facility. Though those bounce houses typically measure 15’x15’, the facility can supply revelers with inflatables that measure up to 23-feet tall.
To ensure safe gravity defiance, trained bounce experts help parents hone in on an inflatables that suits tykes’ ages, interests and varying Buzz Aldrin impersonations. Additionally, the staff not only delivers and sets up houses, but happily trains party throwers in proper bounce-house technique, along with scrubbing down the houses before and after use.
At The Purple Penguin Art Company, artists of all ages and inclinations can enjoy a wide variety of classes, from wheel-thrown pottery to face painting for kids. Camps designed specifically for little ones include fun activities in addition to crafting, ranging from playing dress-up to painting pottery, and are suited for ages 5 and up. Classes for adults and teens are also available in a range of mediums, and adults are encouraged to bring along wine or beer to sip during their sessions.
