A lantern glows softly up ahead, clenched in the undead hand of a ghost—or rather, an actor embodying a local ghost. A cluster of tour-goers follows the "ghost" and his lantern through streets, and alleyways as he reveals the tragedies that unfolded in them. This is the River City Haunts Ghost Tour, one of 65 historically based tours put on by AdLib Luxury Tours & Transportation. The walking and driving tours weave through different parts of Northeast Florida, focusing on cultural aspects. In addition to the tours, AdLib provides transportation for visitors in luxury coaches.
Manned by a U.S. Coast Guard–certified crew, a Thriller SuperCat 55 power catamaran safely whisks patrons away on Thriller Miami Speedboat Adventures' 45-minute voyages that trek all the way into the Atlantic Ocean. After shipping out from Bayside Marketplace, captains navigate the vessel through Biscayne Bay, South Beach, and the Miami Gold Coast, granting guests sweeping views of Fisher Island, Miami Beach, South Beach's Art Deco district, and the towering Miami skyline. Conversant guides narrate each excursion, pinpointing sites of historical interest as they pass by and helping visitors identify multimillion-dollar dwellings owned by celebrities such as Shaquille O'Neal, Gloria Estefan, and Count Chocula.
Fútbol 5 provides soccer aficionados with three outdoor turf fields that host six-on-six games, as well as a multifunctional indoor space for soccer and volleyball.

Fútbol 5 entertains players before and after their games with a sports bar that has eight big-screen TVs. It also keeps kids and adults fit with Zumba and Zumbatomic classes, which blast calories with dance moves performed to Latin beats.

The company also offers a number of private boat charters and guided excursions such as two-hour dolphin tours that allow guests to witness dolphins in their natural habitats and luxurious TV lounges.
At Kinder Kicks, parents and children exercise, learn, and bond during get-togethers that fuse age-appropriate activities with applicable life lessons, from sharing to traffic safety and self-control. Three different age groups—Remarkable Me, Jumping Joey, and Leadership Lion—divvy up the action for newborns through 4-year-olds, with each tier focusing on skills and principles that are easily digestible for its participants.
Remarkable Me sessions, for instance, offer tactile, auditory, and visual stimulation for toddlers while their parents engage in cardio- and strength-training workouts. As kids advance, so does the curriculum: by the time they reach Leadership Lion status, youngsters are practicing basic martial arts to develop a positive attitude toward physical fitness and learn how to kick through their bedroom's forcefield when they're grounded. Little ones are ushered through this progression by friendly instructors, along with The Remarkables—a team of animal characters that makes visits all the more enjoyable.
