One of the largest nurseries in northwest Florida, Floral Tree Gardens surrounds its customers with a land-grown sea of lush foliage and vibrant blooms. Row upon row of the outdoor gardens are painted with yellow daisies and purple cornflowers, and loquat and avocado trees cast shadows over shoppers. Plant purchases may be complemented with garden accents such as clay pots and metal butterflies, which, unlike their living counterparts, follow orders to sit and stay. Floral Tree Gardens' stock changes with the seasons; its facility brims with pumpkins in the fall and poinsettias in the winter. It also stocks fauna at an onsite pond, where visitors can fish for bass or pygmy submarines.
The rumble of rolling spheres serves as a baritone harmony to gleeful shouts at the seats that surround Oops Alley's gleaming lanes. Bowling shoes glide against the wood as patrons take turns knocking down pins in competitions to earn the highest scores or disprove a law of Newtonian physics. Karaoke nights put visiting lungs to use, and a variety of other events lures bowlers away from vendettas with their wooden nemeses. An arcade fuels between-frame score settling with Guitar Hero and Dance Dance Revolution machines that ooze digital melody near a bank of pool tables. A full bar and concession stand whets whistles, and a big-screen television stands tall, waiting to broadcast important athletic competitions or the winner of the Fred Flintstone look-alike contest.

Inspired by her upbringing in a proud, Italian-American household, the owner of Carmelinas On The Go applies long-standing family traditions to her food truck’s house-made cuisine. Like the odds of rain dissolving a toupee made of sugar cubes, the truck’s menu varies from day to day, though italian beef sandwiches, creamy potato salad, and street tacos are regular contributors. For dessert, the mobile eatery drizzles house-made bread pudding with amaretto sauce and assembles dessert nachos from crisp tortillas, chocolate syrup, and fruit compote.
