Juicy tidbits of chocolate-dunked fruit arrive on the doorsteps of family and friends, done up in colorful bouquets and candy boxes by the skilled fruit arrangers at Edible Arrangements' more than 1,100 franchises worldwide. The company's in-house chocolatiers decorate albion strawberries and daisy pineapples in sweet flavors. Once properly chocolated, the workers organize the preservative-free sweets into lush arrangements that resemble flowers in bloom. Customers can choose to display their bouquets in a variety of vessels, including vases, mugs, and sports- or holiday-themed containers that add a personal touch. Alternatively, customers can opt to adorn gifts with the cheery, red lids of candy boxes, nestling 12 morsels inside to build anticipation and determine if loved ones have x-ray vision as they guess whether fruit will come dusted in shredded coconut or drizzled in white chocolate.
Wave-Taco's sun-loving bartenders pour libations amid white-sand volleyball courts, a grass patio, and a sizable population of lounge chairs.

Lounge in swim trunks, bikinis, or borrowed hotel robes while sipping Malibu rum buckets, a potent concoction of seven flavors of rum and fruit juices ($13). Wave-Taco hosts live DJs, beach parties, and bikini contests, and it is open from 6 p.m. to midnight Monday-Thursday and from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
Sears Portrait Studio's original photographers developed their first family photos in darkrooms more than 60 years ago.

After the photo session, customers can order prints for collages, greeting cards, and official flags for the family pirate ship.
