Kevin Sweeney practically has the Florida backwaters in his blood: he was raised to feel comfortable wandering through the swamps, spying wildlife, and catching fish. Today, he wields both his local expertise and an EMT certification as he leads groups across the wilds on five different excursions with South Florida Outdoors Adventure. These eco tours set out to encounter wildlife, hunt for fish, small game, or alligators, and listen for frogs. Participants can also choose to additionally camp out or take archery lessons, learning the skills that can help them survive during their inevitable lifetime in the wild.

Even for those who traffic in stories of the paranormal, Marilyn Egan is unusual. Where most ghost tours focus on vengeful spirits and doomed lovers, she believes that the ghosts of Delray Beach are happy ones. In an interview with the Sun Sentinel, Marilyn stated that the area's spirits aren't bound to the world of the living by curses or vengeance, but because they simply don't want to leave the pleasant village. There are some grim tales at hand, however; people who take the tours will hear tales of the 1903 sinking of the S.S. Inchulva just off the coast of Delray Beach, and of visits by notorious gangsters to the Colony Hotel. Tours also swing by such stops as the former Power's Lounge, Johnnie Brown's, The Blue Anchor Pub, and the tracks of the East Coast Railway in search of lingering spirits.

The school, Lycée Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable, will house and run classes for more than 700 students from pre-school through secondary school. Students at the school also receive two nutritious meals every day and learn at the highest academic levels, with bilingual English-French classes taught by foreign and local teachers.
