  • Harn Museum of Art
    Thought it was opened just in 2012, the Harn Museum of Art's 26,000-square foot David A. Cofrin Asian Art Wing has quite a bit of history on its hands. There are nearly 700 works on display, all chosen from the museum's collection of more than 2,000 pieces. Dating from the Neolithic period to today, the pieces hail from countries such as India, Persia, Vietnam, and Japan. Asian art makes up a quarter of the Harn's more than 10,000 works, which, along with travelling exhibitions, fill 32,800 square feet of gallery space. You’ll walk past African wooden masks, metalwork, and ceramics, as well as almost 1,000 modern prints, drawings, and paintings—including canvases by Claude Monet. Breaking the tradition of many art museums’ “Do not touch” signs, the Bishop Study Center has exhibit-related objects that can be gently touched, though you are not allowed to break apart any sculptures in search of hidden treasure maps. Beyond exhibits, the Harn hosts frequent events including lectures, film screenings, live performances, and interactive programs for students and families.

  • Skate Station Funworks GAINESVILLE
    Up to 22 gas-powered go-karts at a time can hug the twists and turns of Skate Station Funworks' more than 800-foot track. While the go-kart course is the park's longest attraction, it's not the tallest—that honor goes to the indoor rock-climbing wall. Besides climbing and driving, fun at Skate Station ranges from hitting homers in batting cages to putting balls past a landlocked airboat on the swamp-themed mini-golf course. Children aged 10 or younger can explore the three levels of the Kid's Adventure soft play space, whereas guests of all ages can compete in classic games such as air hockey at the arcade. All these attractions share a home with Skate Station's namesake, an indoor roller-skating rink where visitors can groove to Top 40 hits or learn skating fundamentals during lessons.

  • Easton Newberry Sports Complex
    With bowstrings taut, aspiring archers at Easton Newberry Sports Complex learn how to check their stance and precisely aim arrows at targets inside the complex’s indoor target range. Certified instructors teach all levels of archery here. In intermediate and advanced classes, they teach safety principles and scoring, and eventually transition students from the indoor range to the outdoor range. Students of all skill levels and ages can participate year-round archery events and tournaments—check the calendar for event dates. Though archery is one of the sports complex's focuses, Easton Newberry Sports Complex also uses its well-maintained outdoor fields and gymnasium for a wide range of sporting activities. Sign up for t-ball and baseball, tackle and flag football, basketball, and soccer. The complex also provides after-school programs for children, where staff encourage kids to do their homework, followed by exercise and other fun activities.
