Sunshine Ace Hardware stockpiles more than 40,000 tools, fishing gear, housewares, and other handy items across six local storefronts. Three-piece stainless steel barbecue sets ($24.99) brave scorching flames as chefs spear, flip, and sear entrees over backyard grills. Fasten loose screws or ease bolts from lab experiments’ necks with a 21-piece drill bit set from Craftsman ($24.99), or beckon fish from the waves with a deluxe Shimano Zircos 4000 rod and reel fishing combo ($79.99). In downtown Naples, whimsical hardware-themed fixtures illuminate Sunshine Ace Hardware’s recently remodeled flagship store, whose walls are dappled with photos of the store’s 60-year history and prehistoric man’s discovery of circular saws.
Key West Sailing Adventures’ water-savvy ship hands charter passengers to pristine locales for sailing and snorkeling trips. The four-hour excursion outfits each set of up to six divers with all necessary underwater gear—including masks, snorkels, and stingray saddles—as they dive into local reefs. After four hours of subaqueous sightseeing, divers return to the ship’s deck for a two-hour sunset cruise, which chases the picturesque sinking of the nation’s southernmost sun. Excursions occur aboard the 37-foot O’Day sailboat, a solid vessel that avoids bobbling atop waves by practicing core-strengthening Pilates twice weekly. The ship’s galley comes fully stocked with snacks and soft drinks to tide over mid-ocean hunger pangs.
