Nestled in the shadows of ancient oaks and towering cypress trees, Kissimmee Bay Country Club's 18-hole course takes golfers through 6,486 yards of fairways and greens lined with serene water hazards. In total, the course features a dozen ponds that come into play on nearly every hole, challenging players to try forced carries and other crafty shots. The verdant course also peppers a dash of wildlife into rounds, as sand hill cranes are often spotted along the fairways and waterways. Before taking to the course, golfers can warm up their swings at the driving range or motivate golf balls by showing them how easily they can be replaced at the pro shop.

In the world of reality TV, it can be hard to separate fact from scripted sensationalism. But with Ghost Tracker Ghost Tours, visitors can see firsthand how the investigators on Ghost Tracker TV gauge the paranormal activity of reputed hauntings, and will even get to help document the spooky goings-on. Using the tools showcased on the screen—including EMF readers and K2 meters—tour-goers track the level of paranormal activity at 5–7 haunted sites, all while listening to their guide recount stories of the old court house or the hanging tree. During their 90 minutes of ghost hunting, guests maintain a leisurely pace while covering less than a mile of ground, allowing them ample time to peer around with cameras for spectral images that can’t be seen with the human eye. Some tours may be filmed for the show, so guests may be asked to sign a waver in order to enjoy their 15 minutes of fame.

Candy buffets, craft stations, glittery tattoos, and cupcakes are among the available extras, and the guest of honor can even commission a photo shoot that immortalizes the day of glamor.
At CreativiTown Daycare Center, a dedicated teaching staff organizes programs for children as young as 12 months old while working to instill a love for learning and creativity. Educational toys and books fill rows of pintsize shelves, which help to section the open area into themed stations suitable for building with blocks, acting out scenarios with dolls, or discussing the social commentary embedded in cartoons. In addition to exercising mind muscles with reading, math, science, art, and social-studies activities, the teachers supervise active play in a sunny, fenced-in outdoor play area.
