  • Explorium of Lexington
    Real-life attractions permeate the museum?s nine discovery zones, where youngsters enclose themselves in giant bubbles, groom life-sized horses in a stable, and use their hands and feet to play virtual pianos or pop virtual balloons projected onto the floor. Whereas older children can build their own adobe wall in the Homes Around the World area, kids aged 3 and younger can watch wild birds from an observation window or don woodland-creature costumes in the Wonder Woods. Along with its hands-on exhibits, the nonprofit museum stimulates youngsters with a slew of outreach programs. It keeps the art studio stocked with supplies that kids can use to unleash their creativity and invites more than 100 artists younger than 18 to exhibit and sell their work in the annual Museum Go Round. The museum?s summer camps and weekend programs cover kid-friendly subjects that range from performing drama to breaking down the tax code clause by clause.

  • Urban Dare National - USE FOR ALL DEALS
    Urban Dare Adventure Race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. Combining the fast pace of a track meet with the brain-taxing sleuth work of a luge competition, the race uses a dozen trivia-based clues to lead contestants to checkpoints all over Lexington. Location-hunters reach their checkpoints by whatever means necessary, whether it means hopping a bus downtown, flying madly through a network of secret zip lines, or scuba diving in a fountain for bus fare. At the checkpoints, racers must use a camera to document their presence or, in some cases, get their passports stamped after completing a challenge.
