  • Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo
    Normally, you wouldn't expect to cross paths with giant glowing pandas, dragons, and other mythical creatures at the zoo, but that's exactly what visitors at Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo will find. The luminescent creatures are all part of the Zoominations festival, which celebrates the ancient Chinese art of lantern sculpture. Spread across 26 acres, Zoominations features 30 unique and beautiful scenes inspired by Chinese folklore, inviting guests on a cultural journey that has toured London, Toronto, and Beijing. Millions of LED lights and lanterns illuminate the festival grounds, showcasing the ingenuity of skilled artists from the Sichuan Province in China. Zoominations also boasts an Asian market, nightly performances, and dining experiences on select nights. For more information about what to expect, visit the Zoominations Facebook page.

  • Florida Eco-Adventures, LLC
    The state of Florida was once entirely underwater—and Florida Eco-Adventures’ tours explore the parts that still are. Founders Mac and Suzanne McCormick lead adventurers through waters such as Kings Bay that, thanks to its 72-degree waters, is a wintertime refuge for West Indian Manatees. The Silver River, meanwhile, hosts a more eclectic array of wildlife, ranging from gators—although they’re too shy and skittish for regular sightings—to sunfish and rhesus monkeys.

  • United Skates of America, Inc.
    A member of a previously undiscovered species known as skateasaurus stakes its territory, tracing figure eights along the rink's hardwood floor. Dressed in blue-and-white shorts and a red trucker hat, the plush, green-and-yellow dinosaur—otherwise known as Skato—eschews eating children, and instead prompts them to shake it all about in rounds of Hokey Pokey. This fun ambiance extends to the rest of United Skates of America's roller rink, surrounded by lime-green walls and manned by a smiling staff.

  • Pin Chasers
    For more than 50 years, family-owned Pin Chasers alleys have been adding perks to the bowling basics. Leagues for all skill levels, six-week lesson plans, and the immersive light shows of late-night Cyber bowling entertain families with the fundamentals. It's when the scoring systems—equipped with touchscreen consoles and customizable backgrounds—boot up or the automatic bumpers raise between turns that players might first take notice of their high-tech surroundings. As for service, the inviting staff hand out complimentary bowling shoes and socks, and will assist guests in picking out the right type of ball rather than noisily sandblasting one down to size when it doesn’t fit. The full-service cafes also manage to defy expectations by serving breakfast fare around the clock. Friendly employees and full bars span each of Pin Chasers' three locations, but other amenities differ. Visitors can aim cues at Veterans' four billiards tables, stretch their thumbs at East Pasco's arcade, or try to count all of Midtown's 50 lanes without first extracting their fingers from their bowling balls.

  • West of the Moon Art Glass
    Though West of the Moon Art Glass has been around for more than 35 years, its facilities are brand new. Because of a recent relocation, their artisans inhabit a fresh space, where they sculpt custom stained- and leaded-glass works of art for local homes, businesses, and even churches that recently decided to install windows. Their experienced hands masterfully tackle any task customers set before them, whether it be a window, a light fixture, or a wall sculpture. The same meticulous attention goes into leading classes, which grant pupils the tools to craft their own masterpieces from materials that range from fused glass to faux bone. For those who prefer to skip right to the finished product or lack the space in their garden to grow their own glass, the gift shop sells jewelry, sun catchers, and window panels.
