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.

The golfing gurus at Edwin Watts Golf Academy diagnose and correct their students' poor swing and putting habits in an effort to help them improve their shots and lower their scores. In one-on-one swing-analysis sessions, students learn a repeatable swing that eliminates tendencies they may have to slice, hook, push, or pull the ball. A special laser attaches to the end of the player's club and tracks the swing path while JC Video swing-analysis software records the session from two separate angles, lest analysis be thrown off by only looking at the golfer's good side. Putting analysis employs Tomi technology to measure eight separate parameters of the putting stroke, from clubhead orientation at address to swing path and tempo. After swing and putting lessons, students may access the recordings on a password-protected website, so they can forward videos to friends or sports-documentary filmmakers.
