  • The Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum
    Cables, wood, and rope snake throughout 5 acres of woodlands behind the Discovery Museum, forming the bridges, ropes, and ziplines that carry visitors on roaming wilderness adventures over the forest floor. The Adventure Park at the Discovery Museum challenges visitors as young as 7 years old with color-coded trails through the treetops, each ranging in difficulty from beginner to advanced. Adventurers discover their own routes between platforms, and each path presents a different challenge, which prompts climbers to balance on ropes or sneak past owls? nests without waking them. Visitors must scale these courses before soaring down ziplines through wispy branches and dappled sunlight. Though the courses are designed to challenge minds and bodies, guides keep adventurers safe with a double-connected system of locked harnesses. Course designers Outdoor Venture Group eschew motors and electricity to stay environmentally friendly, and designed their course around trees to give each enough space to grow its own treehouse.

  • Connecticut Science Center
    Today, science lets children as young as 7 years old stand in the eye of a hurricane and fly over the surface of Mars—at least at the Connecticut Science Center. The multi-sensory center encourages all ages to explore the exciting side of natural and man-made phenomena. Whether they're braving gale-force winds in the hurricane simulator or engaging with exotic critters in the live animal touch tanks, visitors play an active role in the Science Center's more than 165 hands-on exhibits. In the Sight and Sound Experience, adventurers feel sound vibrations, experiment with lasers and movement, and hear light, whereas Planet Earth encourages them to probe for fossils in a real seabed core. Exploring Space journeys outside the atmosphere with moon rocks and an up-close visit to a black hole, before Invention Dimension, which features LEGOs, returns to Earth so that fledgling engineers can build their own Rube Goldberg machine without calculating the effects of zero gravity. Recently, the Science Center welcomed its newest resident: a sound-equipped animatronic dilophosaurus, whose reptilian movements and noises recreate the goosebumps felt during the species' starring role in Jurassic Park. Robotics also plays a central role in Forces in Motion, which introduces the fundamentals of engineering and design by letting visitors challenge a robot to a game of basketball. The Science Center's dedication to machine life also extends to its programs with a summer teen robotics program and camps during school vacations. Beyond the permanent exhibits, the museum is also a frequent stop for headline-grabbing traveling exhibits from around the country; with multiple exhibits coming through every year, no visit is likely to be the same as the last. The Science Center also houses learning areas suited to even smaller guests: in KidSpace, ages 3–6 splash in a water play area, partake in story time, experiment with a wall of magnetic balls, and test their object recognition in searching activities designed by I Spy author Walter Wick. Other child-friendly areas include Critter Corner, Lunar Lander and Tiny Town - the latter consisting of giant foam building blocks. Beyond the exhibits, a state-of-the-art 3D digital theater screens science-focused films, and four educational labs host special programs such as summer exploration camps and professional development for educators. An on-site Subway restaurant, meanwhile, keeps visitors fueled. All of this academic adventure unfolds in the Science Center's sleek building, which honors its green architecture with a rooftop garden boasting panoramic views of Hartford.

  • The Little Gym of Stamford
    In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers aged 4 months to 12 years with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities. Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents Magazine.

  • Infinity Fitness Fairfield County, CT
    The supportive staff of personal trainers, boot-camp instructors, and nutrition coaches at Infinity Fitness may be quick to give clients technical tips regarding exercise, but they’re even quicker to give words of encouragement. This kind of engagement helps exercisers get the most out of the gym’s offerings, which include boot-camp workouts as well as private and semiprivate personal-training sessions that track results five different ways. As noted on the website, staff members view clients as “walking billboards” for their programs' effectiveness. In return, the staff asks only that clients work hard and stand for weeks at a time by the highway.
