Fresh fish is held in the highest esteem at Asiana Sushi Grill, where chefs expertly craft rolls composed of fresh tuna, salmon, and shrimp. They lovingly pat rice around the outside of rolls filled with spicy tuna, yellowtail and scallions, or yam tempura. They also create Asiana specialty rolls such as the Dancing Girl, which marries shrimp tempura and soft-shell crab with fried sweet potato, and the Red Dragon, which, like all mythical creatures, is actually spicy tuna and wasabi.

Panama City visitors and natives are never more than a hop, a skip, and a parasail away from aquatic amusement, thanks to Adventures at Sea’s more than 60 locations, most stationed behind Panama City Beach's hotels and condos. The staff rents out pontoon boats for trips to Shell Island and pulls up to six riders on inflatable banana boats with a speedy jet ski. Experienced crews captain charter fishing trips and give fishers everything they need to catch trophies such as king mackerel, red groupers, and Stanley Cups that got away. After action-packed days filled with sunny memories, visitors can rent a lounge chair and soak up the sunset.

The professional pilots at Timberview Helicopters ferry passengers high into the clouds aboard a sky-scraping whirlybird during flight tours through Destin, Kansas City, and Key West. Having chartered flights for National Geographic and the Travel Channel, these pilots expertly navigate planes toward sweeping, picturesque views, allowing sightseers to steal glances of Fort Walton Beach, downtown Kansas City, and Key West's ocean views from a perspective normally reserved for birds and astronauts with binoculars. Additionally, their high-definition videos grant guests a lasting commemoration of their in-flight experience. When they're not chartering tours, they teach budding pilots the gravity-defying tricks of their trade through pilot training and lug precious shipments from port to port with their cargo-lifting services.

At IronClad CrossFit, it’s not uncommon to see classes running in the sand on the beach, performing dead lifts in the gym, or flipping tires outside. Trainers Alex and Brett, who are both CrossFit-certified trainers, design a new Workout of the Day (WOD) each day for their clients. Although the WOD is never the same, it might incorporate a combination of various moves such as weightlifting, rowing, running, performing body-weight exercises such as pushups and pull-ups, or doing dips on suspended rings.
