Giant toy soldiers clothed in thousands of colored lights wave at passersby as glowing reindeer take off into the dusk. Towering Christmas trees topped with stars glimmer and glisten with blue and green fiber optics. At Santa's Enchanted Forest, one of the world’s largest Christmas-themed amusement parks, holiday spirit and festive music fill the air long before the end of December. Visitors laugh and shriek on a multitude of carnival rides, including whirling swings, bumper cars, tower drops, and roller coasters, whipping through the air until their cheeks are as rosy as old Saint Nick’s. Traditional carnival games are also on hand, such as dart tosses and soccer-ball kicks, to complement more unconventional carnival amusements such as giant plastic balls to roll around in and a rock-climbing wall to scale. Wee visitors, meanwhile, can make the acquaintance of small livestock in a petting zoo or draw a portrait of their favorite goat in royal costume on a wall-size coloring-book mural. Carnival food, such as barbecue, pizza, and cinnamon donuts, fuels guests as they conquer rides or take in the Cats of the World Tiger Show, the Cirque Equinox, or the Sea Lion Splash Spectacular.

The multitalented troupe of professional dancers at Salsa Mia infuses their students with the instincts to set dance floors ablaze during a schedule of Miami-Cuban-style salsa classes. The studio’s lively classes, which instructor Alex Ruiz described as “salsa speed dating” to NBC Miami, encourage participants of varying skill levels to frequently switch partners as they practice salsa’s energetic fusion of rhythm, footwork, and diced tomatoes. Friday-night instruction transforms into a raucous dance party, where participants can sip banana mojitos, mingle with their peers, and dance deep into the night. Salsa Mía also offers private lessons for those who’d rather receive one-on-one attention.

Sean P. Kicker's long career on the links has included 20 years as a Class-A PGA member and six professional tournament victories.

As students play rounds with Sean, he punctuates play with detailed advice on how to straighten errant swings, avoid bunkers, and stare down the ground squirrels that frequently steal golf balls.

After a few half-hour sessions with the seasoned pro, students often feel an increased level of confidence and renewed gusto for their game.
