Miller Cellars LLC's chief vintner and CEO Lynn Miller concocted her first batch of homemade wine in 2008, when she found a recipe for dandelion wine in Southern Living magazine.

Nicole and Dave Nickel wanted a fun, family-friendly place to create art with their four kids, and they realized that the rest of their community might appreciate something like that as well. So they founded Firefly Pottery Studio to introduce burgeoning artists and their parents to ceramics, mosaics, and glasswork. They invite creative people of all ages to come in, pick a favorite piece from their ready-made stock, and set to work painting and glazing. Once clients finish their masterpiece, the Nickel family cleans up and fires their work, delivering the finished goods in seven days or less.

GroupFit Studio’s owner Sherman Rosier is an NSCA-certified personal trainer, NSTA-certified running coach, certified nutrition specialist, and holds a first-degree black belt in tae kwon do. But no matter how advanced the accreditation he receives, he does not lose sight of the most basic tenant of exercise: whatever workouts you choose, have fun doing them. He tailors his classes to meet this requirement: his GroupFit90 classes work the entire body with lively tandem exercises aided by Bosu balls and resistance bands, and his DanceTance workouts fuel dance-based workouts with energetic funk, Latin, and hip-hop music. Exercisers who need an extra shot of oomph can also meet for a nutritional-coaching session, which provides a clearer insight into workout-friendly munching than spying on Sylvester Stallone while he shops for groceries.
Owned and operated by the Capital Region YMCA for more than 33 years, Camp Indian Springs boasts one of the Tallahassee area’s most venerable summer sleep-away spots. Spread across 77 peaceful acres shrouded by maple, oak, cypress, and pine trees, the campus lets kids truly be kids, as opposed to air-traffic controllers. Campers stay in cabins with 8–12 peers of their same age and gender plus two staff members, promising safety and individual attention with a 1 to 7 staff-to-camper ratio. Camp Indian Springs draws its name from the crystal-clear spring at its heart, and gives kids a venue for swimming and water sports, as well as arts and crafts, archery, and other field sports. Nature-survival instruction teaches outdoor-oriented campers how to fend for themselves, ensuring that the next generation will not forget how life was lived before status updates. Surrounded by living, breathing humans and thrown into situations that don’t contain holograms, they'll re-learn to express themselves without angry emoticons.
