Mitillini Vineyards invites visitors to hand-pick grapes from the lush, scenic rows of vines dotting the property's 20 acres. After traversing the terrain and obtaining 10 pounds of organic muscadine grapes, guests can take their spoils home and apply the fruit toward the creation of jelly, juice, or antioxidant-rich tuxedo stains. Mitillini Vineyard's you-pick operation is open from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weeknights and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, allowing families to visit the vineyard together in preparation for the kids' upcoming reading of The Grapes of Wrath.

Thought it was opened just in 2012, the Harn Museum of Art's 26,000-square foot David A. Cofrin Asian Art Wing has quite a bit of history on its hands. There are nearly 700 works on display, all chosen from the museum's collection of more than 2,000 pieces. Dating from the Neolithic period to today, the pieces hail from countries such as India, Persia, Vietnam, and Japan.

Asian art makes up a quarter of the Harn's more than 10,000 works, which, along with travelling exhibitions, fill 32,800 square feet of gallery space. You’ll walk past African wooden masks, metalwork, and ceramics, as well as almost 1,000 modern prints, drawings, and paintings—including canvases by Claude Monet.

Breaking the tradition of many art museums’ “Do not touch” signs, the Bishop Study Center has exhibit-related objects that can be gently touched, though you are not allowed to break apart any sculptures in search of hidden treasure maps. Beyond exhibits, the Harn hosts frequent events including lectures, film screenings, live performances, and interactive programs for students and families.

Comprised of dieticians, physiologists, and personal trainers, the fit staff members at LifeStyle Wellness all share the same belief: prevention is the best medicine. That's why they anchor their philosophy on the benefits of regular exercise, pairing their expert nutritional counseling with yoga, Pilates, and group fitness classes. The well-roundedness of this approach is evidenced in fitness expert Laura Acosta's Living Lean program, an eight-week class exclusive to LifeStyle that combines customized meal plans with personal training and group support. By eschewing a one-size-fits-all approach to any of their programs, LifeStyle's staff members are able to provide personalized attention and custom-made programs for every client. Additionally, each group fitness class is capped at about five students to ensure instructors bestow each pupil with individualized tips and a pair of monogrammed workout socks.

The ladies-only weight and cardio room lets women sweat and socialize in peace, while the saunas offer a place for all gym-goers to unwind their newly acquired physiques. A spacious group-fitness room hosts Pilates, yoga, Zumba, and Tai Chi classes set to upbeat or tranquil music as the lesson dictates.

With an inventory of canoes and kayaks—as well as a choice launch point on the banks of the Santa Fe River – Santa Fe Canoe Outpost is a starting point for a wide range of aquatic daytrips. There are adventures of varying length, from the 7-mile down-river trip to Rum Island, to multi-day canoe-camping trips to their furthest destination, 39 miles away. Gliding down the river, paddlers may spy some of Florida's famous springs, including the Poe, Devil's Eye, or Lilly, or can peer back at nocturnal wildlife on one of the monthly Full Moon trips. At the conclusion of each outing, a Canoe Outpost team member arrives to safely transport both guests and vessels back to home base.
