A sea turtle proudly displays its intricately patterned shell. A stingray safely brushes its sleek skin against a child’s hand, grazing the top of a 10,000-gallon tank. A bird splashes into mangrove swamps to snatch fish. Sensory experiences like these occur on a regular basis at the 57-acre Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center on Hutchinson Island, sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River Lagoon. As the headquarters for the nonprofit Florida Oceanographic Society, the center strives to both educate the public and inspire environmental stewardship of Florida’s coastal ecosystems.
Among the center’s many activities, visitors can high-five crustaceans at the Sea Star Touch Tank Pavilion and watch a live feeding at the 750,000-gallon Game Fish Lagoon. Educational programs throughout the day explore the lives of sea turtles and explain how to identify local fish that refuse to wear nametags. Just past a colorful butterfly garden and aquariums at the Frances Langford Visitors Center, guests can find nature trails that wend through mangrove swamps and hardwood hammocks. Here, they can see the natural state of a bio-diverse estuary, along with endangered plants and animals that the Florida Oceanographic Society is striving to save through research as well as educational and restoration initiatives.

The jalopy technicians at Unique Auto Sound & Tint shroud the apertures of foreign and domestic cars and light trucks with high-performance window tints and transform rides with functional modifications and repairs. Driver's-side and front-passenger darkenings shield riders behind a sunshade designed to block UV rays, reducing interior heat, preventing leather-seat cracking and fading, and protecting drivers' skin and beloved eight-tracks. Carriages in need of sprucing up can delight in the gentle streaming waters of a vehicle wash ($35 for a car or light truck, $45 for an SUV), during which skilled auto-bathers slough debris from paint and glass while de-griming dashboards, seats, and carpets. Trained mechanics can also touch up scuffs and dents as well as preempt problems with computer diagnostics ($65/hour for repair services). For those who wish to soup up their rides with extra gadgets, Unique Auto's buggy-betterers install radios from top-name brands such as Pioneer, JVC, and Sony ($100 to $1,200), GPS equipment, and car alarms that sound Beethoven's Symphony no. 9.
