  • Iron Star Equestrian
    While bent over dirt, excavating artifacts as an archaeologist for the state of Florida, Sarah MacKusick dreamed of flying over the terrain atop one of her beloved horses. After two years, her opportunity finally came. It was then that she was able to lease a nearby property and open her own facility, which she named Iron Star Equestrian. Now located on the spacious 72-acre Gray Lily Farm, Iron Star offers lessons to casual riders and competition-focused equestrians alike. Leasing options are also available for those looking to train with the same horse, and boarding services give steeds a home away from their owner’s home.

  • Equistarre Horsemanship
    Equistarre Horsemanship’s head instructor, Analese, doles out lessons on the fundamentals of horseback riding from atop a galloping lectern as she leads students across 15 acres of rustic green pastures. After a childhood spent among steeds at her family's boarding facility, Analese continued to indulge her lifelong passion for horses as a trainer, rider, and competition judge before earning a degree in equine science from the University of Florida. She brings her wealth of knowledge to Equistarre Horsemanship, where she introduces students to her stable of personable horses before accompanying them on rides across the ranch’s scenic landscape. During lessons and trail rides, students practice basic techniques and learn to read subtle horse signals, such as "May I have a carrot?" and "That's not a radio dial." When not leading rides out into the meadows, Analese cares for horses in a boarding area that features nine stalls, two storage areas, and a large bay for grooming.

  • Funstation Jr.
    Fun Station Jr. assembles playful activities geared to ages 1–12 in a wonderland voted Tallahassee magazine's Best Place to Take the Kids from 2007 to 2010 under the facility's old moniker, Zoinks. Technicolor arcade games trumpet winners of plush plunder, and bumper cars slap sides in rubbery high-fives. An inflatable bounce area draws excess energy from sock-footed youths, and a concession stand serves trail mix, bottled water, and slices of pizza to replenish empty fuel tanks. Staff members prioritize safety in conjunction with fun, fitting groups with matching wristbands to help them to stay together and dedicating an area to toddlers who intimidate older children by claiming to be dinosaurs. In a separate lounge, adults rest in comfortable chairs during breaks from friendly competition to catch up on work with complimentary WiFi or to watch what's playing on high-definition TVs.

  • Capital Lanes -Tallahassee
    Automatic scoring systems track players' scores as they launch bowling balls down the Capital Lanes' 40 polished alleys. Lasers and black lights illuminate the play area on cosmic-bowling nights, and families share hot snacks from the full-service bar and grill during league play, but bowling isn't the only attraction at the center. Teams battle one another for arena domination in the laser-tag maze, and?a short walk away?the game room recognizes players ability to wield a joystick and to find change in seat cushions.

  • Grace Stables
    Cindy's mission is to make sure Grace Stables is a fun and nurturing environment for all visitors, whether they be horseback riding enthusiasts, beginning trail riders, or special needs children. The stable was named for Cindy's cousin Gracie, who was herself born with special needs, and inspired its therapeutic riding program and Child Animal Relationship Experience (C.A.R.E.) program, which both rely upon the natural bond between horses and children to help youngsters develop cognitive, fine-motor, gross-motor, language, and social skills. In addition to these special programs, the stable's horseback riding experience invites students of any age to participate in all aspects of horsemanship, from grooming, to riding along the surrounding wooded trails, to exchanging email addresses with the horse in order to keep in touch after the lesson is over.

  • Movies 8
    Movies 8’s towering vertical sign flashes its red letters and pastel colors at passersby, enticing them to step inside and enjoy a night at the cinema. In the lobby, black-and-white checkered tiles, pink and orange walls, and neon signs hark back to the 1950s, when ladies often wore polka-dot dresses and gentlemen still slicked back their pompadours with crude motor oil. Before feasting their eyes on recently released blockbusters stretched across the silver screen, moviegoers line up at the snack counter, where an old-fashioned menu displays the theater’s bounty of popcorns, snacks, and drinks. Once movies let out, guests can test their button-mashing mettle in Movies 8’s arcade, which has its own separate nook.
