With a Coast Guard–licensed crew and state-of-the-art equipment, Sebastian Inlet Parasailing offers adventure seekers a scenic and safe adrenaline rush. Adventurers depart from the marina at Captain Hiram's resort, soaring above the calm waters while seeking out dolphins, and other native animals. Afterward, they can unwind indoors or on the riverfront patio at Treasure Coast seafood restaurant, or sip drinks at one of the three tropical-style bars that comprise the SandBar. The resort maintains a festive ambiance with regular live entertainment, and also offers ecological boat tours and boat, jet-ski, and kayak rentals. After a long day of fun, parasailors can stay at the Inn's private-balcony deluxe suites. Hotel guests can relax and take advantage of the heated pool.
Jesse Rijos and Daisy Rullan purchased Inlet Wines in 2010 and immediately began revamping the retail space’s vibe. Though the shop remains true to its original purpose—pairing customers with craft beer, cigars, and wines from Argentina, Italy, Spain, and Napa Valley—it also now houses a lounge area where customers can listen to live music each weekend. In addition, the space hosts once-monthly comedy shows and Wednesday-evening happy hours to counteract the bad mood that results from inadvertently tossing your dirty dishes in the dryer. All gatherings at Inlet Wines spill out onto a patio where guests can puff on purchased cigars.
Led by board-certified chiropractic physician Matthew Schiermyer D.C., the staff at Indian River Chiropractic analyzes each client before personalizing their treatments from an arsenal of chiropractic techniques. These can include everything from massages, impulse instruments, and x-rays, which are handled onsite. Often, Dr. Schiermyer tends to his patients' spinal woes on the same day as their treatments, and sends them off with homework to maintain happy nervous systems for the long term.
It's hard to imagine that there's a libation out there that Crown doesn't carry. With a selection that spans vineyards, distilleries, and breweries from around the world, the bottles lining each location come from both small, artisan makers and those universally famed for their grapes or techniques. Home mixologists can cull inspiration for cocktails from a selection of top-shelf-brand mixers or pair their tipple of choice with gourmet snacks, from bush-pepper macadamia nuts to dirty martini party dip. But tastings may be the most distinctive thing about Crown Wine & Spirits. Whether customers stop in to try each location's daily offerings of wine or spirits—or for special tastings that cover dozens of wines, bourbons or beers—Crown's staff makes it easy to find a new favorite or to make up to your tongue for forgetting so many of its birthdays.
In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
