SunCruz Port Richey Casino sugars the sweet teeth of Florida's cardsharps, crapshooters, and slot-grapplers with its bounteous gambling accoutrements. The 165-foot vessel provides buoyant refuge for more than 325 token-operated slot machines, which allow bettors to select the stake of each spin ($.05–$5), finally making gambling feasible for chalcophobic elements of society and anthropomorphic pole magnets. Table games populate the floors of both decks, featuring blackjack, craps, roulette, three-card poker, let it ride, and the ever-popular pick-a-farm animal ($5+ minimums). The ship comes equipped with satellite TV and serves deli cuisine and drinks at the open top deck with bar during the trip.
Ocala Ghost Walks and Historical Tours owner Catherine Wendell exposes skeptics and paranormal enthusiasts to the spookiness of some of Ocala’s historic locations during ghost-hunting jaunts by foot or within the creepy confines of a hearse. Ghost walk tours have stopped at such hair-raising hot spots as the Seven Sisters Inn, which has been featured on Syfy’s Ghost Hunters for its haunted happenings caused by frighteningly unreliable room service. Meeting up at 8 p.m. on Friday or Saturday evening or at selected appointment time, the outdoor tour marches through eerie locales in all weather conditions and advises guests to dress accordingly. Catherine urges tourists to bring their cameras, flashlights, and EMF detectors to help peer into the supernatural realm without having to bottle a fortuneteller’s bath water.

Though they're certainly adept at standing still, buildings and monuments present their own set of challenges for people trying to take pictures of them. To surmount these complications, the professional photographers at ShutterGuide set out on two-hour walking tours, teaching groups how to best frame the landmarks on their route. For each site, they demonstrate a different camera technique that suits the landscape, such as adjusting the composition or keeping photo-bombing statues out of the frame. Guests can capture snapshots with nearly any type of lens—even the one on their smartphone.
The tours cover photography topics from lighting to metering and depth of field, but they're also a lesson in history. During the walk, guides dole out trivia on the city's past. They take a maximum of eight people in every group and accommodate aspiring shutterbugs of all skill levels.
Southeastern Paranormal Investigations leads groups of intrepid explorers on paranormal tours. During each tour, guides weave tales of hauntings and paranormal investigations.

Ocala Carriage’s charioteers trace idyllic routes past the leaf-canopied streets that border Marion County’s horse farms. Couples can snuggle within old-fashioned carriages and ogle horses as they gallop, gallivant, and sleuth out which one of them is a centaur in disguise. Guides highlight various breeds and local lore while traveling down winding roads bordered on both sides by open pastures. Arabian and Quarter horses race along fenced borders, their majestic manes reminiscent of pastoral paintings and ‘80s hair metal bands.
