  • Houston Maritime Museum
    When Houston Maritime Museum founder James L. Manzolillo moved to Houston in 1979, he found the city to be an ideal location for establishing a living, breathing monument to maritime history. As a host to the second-largest port in the United States, Houston provides a fitting backdrop for an institution that preserves the legacy of the intrepid individuals who explored the waters about which Manzolillo has always been passionate. Housed inside the former home of retired Navy lieutenant commander John Luykx, the Houston Maritime Museum's collection contains 150 model battleships, paddleboats, and submersibles as well as 100 maritime artifacts such as astrolabes, nautical quadrants, and sextants. An exhibit dedicated to the Port of Houston displays the port's history through artifacts and photos, and illustrates the port's significance to the local and national economy. Guided tours are conducted with advanced registration to allow visitors to learn little-known facts without having to forge the naval-officer secret handshake.

  • Island Paddle
    In its earliest incarnations, stand-up paddleboarding wasn't a sport. It was just something surfers in Hawaii did to reach far-away waves or cross huge hotel bathtubs. Over time, the practice evolved into an activity in its own right, and one of the fastest-growing water sports in the world. The team at Island Paddle is fully on top of the trend, hosting 5K SUP races. Of course, man cannot live on stand-up paddle-boards alone, so the team outfits folks with all manner of self-propelled aquatic vehicles, including kayaks. They even have the water crafts delivered so patrons can row their boards on whichever waves they like.

  • Houston Adventure Boot Camp
    Karen Mones's passion for fitness began at a young age, exercising to Jane Fonda videos with her mother. She went on to play softball, earn her bachelor's in exercise and sports science, and obtain six instructor certifications in everything from yoga to strength training. She founded Houston Adventure Boot Camp to share her knowledge and passion for fitness with as many people as possible. She and her trainers create different regimens each day, taking advantage of the city's natural spaces and natural forces to enhance their workouts. They challenge gravity by having students lift their own bodyweight or free weights. Students plow through the heaviest friction the air can throw at them in sprints, and they hold up under constant pressure from the sun to nap in the middle of a field.
