With more than 1,000 different types of cheese made within its borders, France is known as the cheese capital of the world. So naturally, it's the country from which The Cheese Course imports most of its inventory?75 types to be exact. These include brie de meaux, fromager d'affinois truffles, and roquefort, one of France's oldest cheeses and one that is still ripened in the same cool, damp caves of Combalou.

Of course, France isn't the only region represented at The Cheese Course. The European-style cheese shop introduces patrons to more than 150 artisanal cheeses imported from dairy farms all over the world. Most of the cheese makers use the same cheese-making methods that have been passed down through their families for generations via email. The house cheesemonger guides patrons through the cheese-selection process and teaches them how best to serve each one.

The shop also shows off its wares in various bistro sandwiches, including gourmet grilled cheese and the popular prosciutto di parma. This 14-month-aged, imported Italian meat gets its nutty flavor from the parmigiano-reggiano whey in the pig's diet.

Founded as a sanctuary for flowers, birds, and their admirers, Pinecrest Gardens has flourished into a family-friendly retreat that entertains visitors with horticultural exhibits and artistic events in a scenic setting. Spanning 4.3 acres of forested wetland, the gardens harbor more than 1,000 rare and exotic plants, including a 100-year-old coco plum tree, orchids, and a banyan tree that spreads across three-fourths of an acre. Waterways full of fish snake through these plants, their inhabitants impatiently pursing their lips at visitors for handfuls of food.

Pinecrest Gardens offers other entertainment opportunities for youngsters, who can splash around in the water playground, spot wildlife at Swan Lake, or play with potbellied pigs at the petting zoo. In addition, the 500-seat outdoor Banyan Bowl offers concertgoers pristine acoustics and cool evening breezes along with complimentary views of the stars.

The world’s a different place than it was in 1962, when the Beatles were kings, JFK was president, and the internet sounded like the name of some kind of obscure tennis equipment. However, despite a half-century of changes, at least one thing remains consistent: when they want a darn good burger, people still come to the Keg South. The sound of familiar greetings echoes against the wood-paneled walls of the 50-year-old establishment, mingling with the clatter of billiard balls and clink of frosted mugs. Neon beer signs and flat-screen televisions cast a colorful glow on the regular clientele, who munch thick beef burgers, freshly cut fries, and grilled wings. Throughout the year, the pub staff holds special events out in the parking lot, including a Christmas pig roast that was called out in the Miami Herald.

Sammy Hernandez has achieved a lot of success during his basketball career?perhaps most notably, he played for George Mason University when the team reached the Final Four in 2006. However, Sammy might be most proud of his current position as founder of Sammys Full Court Prep. The program offers girls' and boys' basketball camps, clinics, and leagues, as well an afterschool program and birthday parties. And the former forward helps kids take their offensive and defensive moves to the next level during personal and group skill-development training sessions.
