The curators of Bounce & Play's indoor playground want to see kids exercising and developing motor skills. To accomplish this, they fill their plush facility with seven bounce houses, air-filled obstacle courses, and games such as ping-pong and air hockey. For adults, they stock the center's bright storefront with coffee and snacks. Additionally, the playground's toddler area lets little ones younger than aged 3 crawl through tunnels and play with toys without encountering the competitive spirit of older kids who talk about nothing but math and literature.

Castle Lanes, which was No. 36 on Bowlers Journal International's list of 95 must-see bowling centers, has a cozy Northwoods-Log-Homes-esque interior that invites bowlers of all ages and abilities to relax and perfect their pin-toppling skills. On 24 glossy lanes, bowlers sling new house balls at pins between watching the alley's HDTVs, listening to music with the alley's iPod hook-ups, or surfing the Internet on the alley's free WiFi. Castle Lanes is a smoke-free environment, making it friendly to families and sneezy dwarves. The alley's dedication to an upscale environment filled with top-notch equipment is fostered by owners Phillip Ontko, who is a Racine Bowling Hall of Famer and the Nolan Ryan of bowling strikes, and his wife, who can easily roll a bowling ball up a hill.

Situated in the heart of downtown Racine, RAM is dedicated to the exhibition, education, and collection of contemporary visual art. With more than 5,000 objects in its permanent collection, the 46,000-square-foot space houses one of North America’s largest collections of contemporary crafts in a multitude of mediums such as ceramics and fiber arts. The museum also constantly cycles in new retina-rallying exhibitions such as the current Not So Still Life, examining a range of quirky interpretations of classic still-life subjects such as fruit bowls or avant-garde Jello molds. Visitors can also admire the bold contour lines and expressive mark-making of painter couple Ruth Grotenrath and Schomer Lichtner. Check the exhibitions schedule for a sampling of upcoming shows to fuel future bouts of cognitive calisthenics.

Amur tigers stretch out in the sun, red kangaroos hop leisurely along, and orangutans groom each other in the shade while tree pythons and box turtles roam their tanks, oblivious of each other and everything outside. Nearby, budgies, storks, cormorants, and screech owls roost on perches and soar over the heads of their human visitors. These creatures join a menagerie of more than 250 animals—representing 76 different species—that mingle across 32 acres of natural habitat at the Racine Zoo. Together with their staff counterparts, these animals speak to the zoo’s efforts toward conservation and strengthening the bond between humans and their wild neighbors.

Though they can get up close to animal enclosures, visitors also explore more immersive wildlife education through seasonal and year-round attractions. Giraffe encounters allow guests to participate in the supervised feeding of a masai giraffe, and Animal Chats prompt visitors to ask questions of the caretakers, such as how they feed the zoo's carnivores and which of the herbivores prefer italian dressing. At the Benstead Discovery Center, guests greet reptiles and amphibians and watch fish swim in a 2,000-gallon saltwater tank. In the open-air Norco Aviary, visitors can behave as flocks of Australian budgies, rosellas, or cockatiels. Children, meanwhile, frolic across the two-story climbing structure, slides, and zipline at the PlayZoo Playground, or board a colorful, seasonal miniature express train.
