Don’t let the name fool you. Florida Sport Fishing – Journal For The Avid Angler isn’t just for natives of the Sunshine State. With distribution in 25 states and Canada, the bimonthly magazine equips fishermen and boaters all over the continent with angling tips, fishing stories, reviews of the latest gear, and articles that cover everything from hooking fish to cooking them.
Just because the comprehensive publication may be accessible enough for the amateur doesn’t mean the writers are mere hobbyists. On the contrary—the staff is comprised of authoritative enthusiasts, all overseen by editor-and-chief Mike Genoun, a 100-ton master captain who has been fishing the east coast for more than 30 years.

At Planet Air Sports, kids and adults spend as little time on the ground as possible. They bound across 8,000 square feet of trampolines, using cords in the bungee area to execute somersaults or combining aspects of basketball and volleyball into the bouncy Aeroball. They also practice their Indiana Jones impressions as they maneuver over planks and suspended tires on 30 point ropes courses—the upper level culminating in a heart-pounding zipline adventure. The 20-foot rock-climbing wall, meanwhile, tests strength, beckoning adventurers to the top with the satisfaction of accomplishment and the promise of seeing the last remaining dodo nest.
Guests are also entertained with arcade games and air-hockey tables while parents retire to the lounge area. The colorful center's airtime-inducing attractions make it an ideal spot for birthday parties, corporate team-building exercises, and fun family outings. Families spending the day at the facility can take a snack break at the in-house cafe, which serves a menu of pizza, sandwiches, and salads, in addition to small bites, such as mozzarella sticks, muffins, and fries.
The intoxicating scents of orchids, pink roses, and button spray chrysanthemums have filled Deerfield Florist’s gardens since 1953, when the family-owned company began crafting personalized floral arrangements with fresh flowers and gourmet fruit. Yellow and white petals burst from the bouquets and corsages that the company’s skilled florists design for weddings, holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions. When they aren’t sculpting blossoms into themed bouquets, the florists gladly share their secrets for maintaining healthy plants; a list of helpful tips on their website suggests keeping arrangements away from heating vents and dank, dark basements filled with pet squirrels.
Every day for the past 20 years, the team of adventurers at Island Camps has heard the call of the ocean's cresting waves. They've answered with a full slate of surfing and standup paddleboarding lessons and day camps geared toward beginners who might be hearing that call for the first time. Certified in first aid and lifeguard ocean rescue, they help students feel safe while instilling in them the skills needed to explore the wild blue yonder.
Since paddleboarding is easy to pick up, the team regularly leads newcomers on tours of the intercoastal waterways and Deerfield Island Park. During sunset and ecology tours, groups dip their paddles into cool waters while slipping past mangroves, wetland marshes, and the cave of the local sea lord. If you're looking for a more grounded experience, Island Camps also offers skateboarding lessons that teach basic skills and tricks such as the ollie.
