Groups of tourists walk past the current dwelling places of some of the area’s notable residents, such as Addison Cairns Mizner, Paul Ilyinsky, and Henry Morrison Flagler. Unlike the case with traditional celebrity-sighting tours, however, all of these men died decades ago. Their spooky hauntings frame the path of Ghosts of Palm Beach’s walking tours, during which knowledgeable guides share local folklore and paranormal encounters. Stops can include everything from Palm Beach Town Hall to high-fashion shops such as Gucci, Chanel, and Saks Fifth Avenue, where the ghosts still try to buy handbags for a dollar and two bits.
At Fort Lauderdale Stand Up Paddle, owner Tatiana Lovechenko and her team of seasoned instructors guide patrons through informative lessons and scenic tours. Atop the glistening tides of the Florida coast, private coaching sessions equip students with the basic skills important to staying above the water but below the reach of birds' hairbrushes. Teachers also sling essential tips regarding ocean awareness and paddle-boarding etiquette, preparing pupils for apropos small talk with gregarious krakens.
Imagine a party on a bicycle built for 15, and you've got yourself a Cycle Party. The large, pedal-powered land-craft seats up to 15 passengers (10 pedalers, 5 coasters) that wheel their way around the Las Olas/Downtown Fort Lauderdale area. A trained company driver operates the steering wheel and brakes during the two-hour minimum outing, while riders listen to music and come up with the agenda for the night. The vehicle often hits the streets for Cycle Party pub-crawls, which takes groups around to 3 participating restaurants and bars. During these 20-minute stopovers, guests can flash their VIP wristbands for access to drink specials, and to avoid lines and cover charges.
Segway Fort Lauderdale owner Johnathan Rosen views Segways as about as simple to get the hang of as walking (he's seen clients ages 5 to 92 master them). On these jaunts of Fort Lauderdale, groups roll through scenic areas, visit piers, and take optional jaunts down back alleys. There, they can try out their Segways' top speed?roughly 12.5 mph, about as fast as a cheetah wearing substantial ankle weights. As participants roll along, guides can share tidbits about the comings and goings of area celebrities in the area and the Segway's history. There's also plenty of time for participants to talk amongst themselves while a company photographer snaps complimentary action shots.

A sea turtle proudly displays its intricately patterned shell. A stingray safely brushes its sleek skin against a child’s hand, grazing the top of a 10,000-gallon tank. A bird splashes into mangrove swamps to snatch fish. Sensory experiences like these occur on a regular basis at the 57-acre Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center on Hutchinson Island, sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River Lagoon. As the headquarters for the nonprofit Florida Oceanographic Society, the center strives to both educate the public and inspire environmental stewardship of Florida’s coastal ecosystems.
Among the center’s many activities, visitors can high-five crustaceans at the Sea Star Touch Tank Pavilion and watch a live feeding at the 750,000-gallon Game Fish Lagoon. Educational programs throughout the day explore the lives of sea turtles and explain how to identify local fish that refuse to wear nametags. Just past a colorful butterfly garden and aquariums at the Frances Langford Visitors Center, guests can find nature trails that wend through mangrove swamps and hardwood hammocks. Here, they can see the natural state of a bio-diverse estuary, along with endangered plants and animals that the Florida Oceanographic Society is striving to save through research as well as educational and restoration initiatives.
