The American West stands frozen in time at Booth Western Art Museum, an Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. The bronze forms of cowboys and many of the Native Americans encountered by Lewis and Clark populate the sculpture court. At the hall's center stands Vic Payne's Eagle Catcher, a two-story sculpture that depicts a large eagle with its wings outstretched. Its talons lock with the arms of a Native American man who leans backwards as he grapples with the aviary predator—a symbol of the struggle for the American West.
The impressive sculpture is just one stop on the museum's tour, which takes visitors into a permanent collection that comprises more than a dozen galleries and temporary exhibit halls featuring as many as 12 exhibits each year that explore the west from the 1800s through present day. More than 100 traditional paintings and sculptures by the likes of Frederic Remington, Charles Russell, and George Catlin depict cowboys, Native American cultures, and breathtaking natural landscapes in the American West Gallery. Other spaces focus on the Civil War, while the Modern West Gallery interprets the western United States through abstract paintings and other contemporary forms by such artists as Nelson Boren, Thom Ross, and Ed Mell. Beneath the portraits of every U.S. president in the Carolyn and James Millar Presidential Gallery, personal letters written by the robotic arm of each leader humanize the lofty figures of American history.
In addition to exhibits, Booth Western Art Museum hosts adult art classes and seasonal events, such as April's "Civil War Comes Alive!", wherein visitors might stumble upon Abraham Lincoln mid-Gettysburg Address or spot soldiers firing cannons, and October's Southeastern Cowboy Festival & Symposium, which features Native American dancing, gun-fight reenactments, and a traditional western marketplace. Kids can savor hands-on history in Sagebrush Ranch, where a three-quarter-scale stagecoach, an authentic loom, real Western wear, and a bounty of other attractions await to grant little ones with an immersive educational experience.
An all-ages and all skill-levels watersports park, Terminus Wake Park celebrates the fun art of wake-boarding and water-skating, kneeboarding, and waterskiing in three man-made lakes designed for beginner to advanced-level. Three state-of-the-art cable systems hang from steel pylons above the varied aquatic obstacles on all three. The beginner course eases visitors into the water with a partial cable system and low speeds, the intermediate ring features a full clockwise system and a few stunts, and the third, the expert course, is dotted with
rails, sliders, and ramps—many of which are exclusive to Terminus. Each cable is powered by an electric controlled variable speed motor, ensuring even speeds—regardless of the number of riders. Guests can opt to rent all needed equipment on site. Terminus also hosts summer watersports camps and private parties for birthdays and youth events.
Like an oasis on the outskirts of the city, Woodland Hills Golf Club envelops visitors in 167 acres of serene rolling hills. The semi-private, 18-hole club challenges even experienced players, with contoured bentgrass greens and rippling fairways requiring an array of different approaches. Players must also reach into their bag of shotmaking skills in order to avoid a number of strategically placed bunkers and picturesque water hazards.
