Racers fly over the European-style road course, whipping past red-and-black boundaries as they maneuver in and out of the turns and straightaways. While they jockey for position and widen the gap between them and the competition, they listen to the race coverage on their radio helmets, striving to improve on their last lap time by cracking a whip over their engines until they gallop up to 40 miles per hour. This is the Andretti Challenge, one of five go-kart tracks within the six-acre Andretti Thrill Park.

The park?s attractions span amusements for nearly every age, from tyke-friendly fun on Rookie Row to single and double karts on the Super Speedway. The park also encompasses nonmotorized fun, such as the Andretti Edge climbing wall, mini bowling, and a tokenless, card-based arcade. And as expected at any family amusement park, Andretti's staff includes a team dedicated to handling parties so that parents don't have to sneak into the park at midnight and power the arcade with their car battery. This scope and quality of entertainment earned Andretti Thrill Park the 2011, 2012, and 2013 Best of Melbourne Award: Amusement Parks from the US Commerce Association.

The Sable Nargile's name translates into English as "the black hookah," evoking both the spot's status as a hookah caf? and its relaxed nightclub atmosphere. An array of flavored-tobacco options provide exotic hookah pairings for the caf?'s nightly events and a smoke screen to throw off any spies hot in pursuit. Events range from appearances by local DJs, who fill the space with pop and electronic beats, to screenings of soccer matches and other live sporting events.

From model cars to butterflies, many hobbyists have a collection of personal treasures. In the late Mel Fisher's case, his happened to consist of tons upon tons of gold, silver, and jewels. A pioneering diver, Fisher made his name in 1985 with the discovery of the 1622 wreck of the Spanish galleon Nuestra Se?ora de Atocha, felled as it was transporting 40 tons of gold and silver back to Europe. Rather than using the haul to fill his swimming pools, he set about making his discoveries known to the world while continuing to explore the ocean floor for other wrecked 17th- and 18th-century ships. Today, Mel Fisher's Treasure Museum awes visitors with a look at its namesake's remarkable life and collection.

  • Size: at least 10 mother lodes
  • Eye Catcher: a gleaming golden whistle from the Margarita site
  • The Collection: artifacts from a Spanish fleet that sank in 1715 on the treasure coast
  • Hands-On: Visitors can lift an actual Atocha gold bar?and purchase authentic unique coins in jewelry settings, treasure recreations, or nautical gifts.
