Proprietors and swamp enthusiasts Chip and Joy Campbell seek to share their passion for Okefenokee's storied wetlands with sightseers looking for a distinctive, interactive experience. Let knowledgeable, accessible guides narrate your tour from comfortable, canopied flat-bottomed boats as you and a band of khaki-hatted sojourners cruise through the lush marshes of the Suwannee Canal, past verdant forests of intertwined trees belting out "Run Through the Jungle" in their best John Fogerty voices. Visit a bevy of creatures like sandhill cranes, egrets, and alligators in their natural habitats while learning that "swamp things" are simply misunderstood people with uncannily green thumbs.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
