Express Languages' trained, certified staff bestows the gift of bilingual expression and boasts a variety of classes designed to boost learners beyond the restrictions of their mother tongue. For the past decade, its educational approach has aimed to enrich listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Eight Spanish-language courses and nine ESL courses offer beginning to advanced semanticists an opportunity to fine-tune their previous skills or figure out the proper way to ask if they have mayonnaise on their faces.
The new and improved Spanish Wells Golf and Country Club and its three 9-hole courses converge to form three distinct 18-hole monoliths characterized by lush palms, infringing waters, and immaculately maintained greenery. The course's crafty layout perplexes golfers with course-management quandaries such as the South Course's 438-yard, par-4 9th hole, a dog-leg right where players must either flush a tee shot left-to-right, hit a straight drive that carries a treacherous right-side bunker, or bribe a coterie of left-side oak trees to uproot and clear the way. Recently reseeded grass cradles each ball like a plush shag carpet, and 80 new golf carts zip efficiently through the course while flaunting their luxurious jobs to envious sedans parked in the driveways of course-side residences. Adobe accents and elegant sconces welcome patrons to the newly renovated clubhouse, where famished duffers can nosh on an appetizer such as boneless buffalo wings or coconut shrimp while drinking in sudsy sips of Bud Light, Miller Lite, or Heineken.
At locations in Bonita Springs and Marco Island, Drs. Fred Eck and Joseph Goth and their team deliver a generous roster of dentistry services. They examine and clean teeth during routine checkups and beautify smiles with Invisalign retainers, dental implants, and porcelain veneers that cover chipped or discolored teeth. Their cosmetic services extend beyond the mouth with Botox treatments, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines on the face for up to four months.
The gentle clap of paddles against the water and the tenor thrumming of jet-ski motors drift from Adventure Water Sports. On waverunners, diminutive sailboats, and kayaks, patrons spread out across the surf and around Estero Island, their eyes peeled for dolphins and other fauna at all times. The shoreline falls back in quiet bays and estuaries, where little fish dart among tangled knots of mangrove roots. Instructors certified by the United States Coast Guard demonstrate the operation of vessels, lead tours, and knock down sand castles lacking proper fire exits.
The beauty professionals at Trim and Tone Spa keep bodies spry and lively with a variety of noninvasive and FDA-approved services, from body-contouring wraps to detoxifying footbaths. Owner Shelle Misiorowski brings expertise in Exilis and VelaShape therapies that smooth cellulite and slim the physique without requiring hours of exercise or corset lacing. The spa also pumps up the volume and length of natural lashes with eyelash extensions, beautifies visages with customized facials, and bronzes skin with sunless VersaSpa spray tans that can last for up to seven days, like a championship-level staring contest.
Lined with more than 70 high-definition flat-screen televisions and two 110-inch projector screens, Boston Beer Garden immerses diners in 360 degrees of sports. Every seat is the best in the house, whether it’s a brown leather booth on the restaurant's perimeter, a high-top table in the center, or the bartender's lap. Behind the indoor and outdoor bars, the other barkeeps offer various microbrews and domestic drafts to complement the chefs' all-natural, home-style cooking—burgers stuffed with bacon and cheese, for instance, and short ribs braised in Sam Adams lager and Guinnes stout. To accompany nighttime happenings such as pub trivia and live music, the culinary team cooks until 2 a.m. from a late-night menu that includes deep-fried kosher pickles and sandwiches filled with ingredients such as scallions and harvati cheese.
