  • Ice Skate USA
    Memorial City Mall’s chirping cash registers and department-store scanners give way to the scraping of blades against ice inside Ice Skate USA. There, a full-sized rink large enough to host official IHL and NHL games reinvigorates bodies worn from shopping by imparting the freedom and fun of uninhibited speed during open-skate sessions. The rink also keeps a squad of instructors on hand who host hockey academies to sharpen everything from basic skating skills to puck control to discerning between team mascots and roving packs of wolves. Additionally, Ice Skate USA also works to expand the community’s appreciation for ice-bound culture during scheduled events such as The Nutcracker on Ice, with try-outs for the production encouraged for all students, and open to skaters of any skill and age.

  • 2012 Bayou Bucket
    Luxury cars, off-road vehicles, and classic models from yesteryear all pack the Houston Auto Show?and for the duration of the event, these marvels of the internal combustion engine aren't driving off anywhere. Roughly 700,000 sq. ft. of the latest in all things automobile surround attendees as they step out onto the convention floor. Opportunities to view, touch, and even drive more than 500 of the latest vehicles abound, all while event organizers host contests and giveaways. Though the show is continuing a tradition that began 30 years ago, its new highlights enter into sci-fi territory. The Energy Pavilion, for example, features energy-related technologies such as cars that run on alternatives to someone pulling them with a rope. Kids can also get in on the action at a Fun Zone: a supervised play area filled with car-themed activities.

  • Quillian Recreation Center
    There aren't too many places that kids, teens, adults, and seniors can all enjoy equally. Among that small number, though, is Quillian Recreation Center, which has hosted all-ages recreational activities since 1958?the same year the U.S. declared hobbies legal. Anchored by a caring staff, the facility's features include two lighted softball fields, fitness trails, soccer fields, and an aquatic venue with a diving board and slides. And that's just outside; inside, Quillian boasts a gymnasium, a game room, and even a climbing wall. Visitors of all ages can enjoy the facility year-round, though the center does offer special summer programs and summer camps for kids and teens.

  • The Bradley League
    FunDMental Hoops is a basketball training organization whose camps, clinics, and events launch young players toward trophies. Its courts are the domain of founders Karon Bradley and Jeremiah Boswell, a retired pro basketball player whose credentials and awards speak to his sharply honed skills. Karon helped put his Marquette University team in the NCAA Final Four, while Jeremiah earned two Defensive Player of the Year awards at Columbia University. Today they both play professionally overseas—where basketballs spin counterclockwise instead of clockwise—but when they're stateside they're coaching kids alongside fellow FunDMental trainers.
