Airboat & Gator Charters’ expert swamponauts ably escort guests through the placid waters of central Florida’s most serene lakes and rivers. Customers can hop aboard a 425-horsepower Diamondback airboat for a 90-minute private tour, which offers the chance to glimpse wildlife including bald eagles, herons, red-tailed hawks, manatees, turtles, and alligators. The high-performance watercraft seats up to six and comes equipped with a USCG-licensed captain, who will harness the power of the boat’s Piratecom headsets to point out targets for your eyes, whether they're animal, plant, or the occasional plantanimal. The private tours are offered year-round and launch throughout the day, from sunrise to sunset. Choose to embark on a daytime trip, which features views of the American alligator’s daily tanning habits, or embark on the nighttime tour and hope for a rare sighting of the white-tailed deer’s annual sighting of its tail.
Nestled in the shadows of towering trees, golfers traverse the arboreal alleyways of DeLand Country Club’s course across 18 holes of challenging golf. Throughout the course, mature oaks and pines stalk the edges of fairways, flexing their branches ominously and making menacing shadow puppets with their twiggy fingers in an attempt to break the focus of golfers. The subtle slopes of the rolling course place a high premium on golfers’ capacity to cleanly strike balls off of uneven surfaces, and greenside bunkers wait to ensnare off-kilter shots. Club-toting twosomes can loop the 18-hole course astride an efficient golf cart, which helps hunt down balls while proffering incisive commentary about the universally strained relationship between carts and caddies.

The compassionate staff members and doctors at DeLand Dental keep patients anxiety-free while maintaining mouths and performing Invisalign services. Invisalign realigns crooked teeth in 10–14 months using virtually invisible plastic aligners worn over the ivories. During an initial 15- to 20-minute appointment, clients consult with the dentist to assure a clean bill of health and eligibility for the procedure. If cleared to proceed, the doctor takes mouth impressions to create customized aligners, as well as a personalized set of wind-up chattering teeth. Within two–three weeks, patients return for a one-hour visit, during which they view a computer simulation of the alignment process, then are sent home with brand-new aligners, returning approximately once a month to be fitted for new sets as teeth gradually cease to resemble the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Between 6 and 12 follow-up office visits are typical during the adjustment process, though each patient's needs are unique.
