The chromatic champions at Color Wheel Paint dispense distinctive pigmentations in more than 1,600 colors, along with providing the necessary tools to complete any painting project. Coat abashedly naked walls with a gallon of flat Hi-Hide interior paint ($19.86/gallon) or Optima Satin Supreme ($31.73/gallon), which can colorize anything from bedroom walls to the picket fence marking the boundary of your office's cubicles. Drab exteriors receive a tinting treatment with a gallon of Tropicoat 100% Acrylic Latex Paint ($30.65/gallon), primed with a coating of Quick Cure Acrylic Conditioner ($25.16/gallon), ideal for previously painted surfaces. Home tidiers can also aid the spreading process with Master Choice tools, such as the Klondike 3-inch angle sash brush ($14.72), with a soft bristle for ticklish walls, and the 12'x15' canvas drop cloth ($20.43).
The Electric Marina Boat Rental allows boaters to enjoy a smooth pleasure cruise atop an electric vessel, a clean, green floating machine to fulfill shimmering blue ocean dreams. Each 24-foot, easily navigable floating apparatus arrives liberated from the shackles of loud engine noises, pricey fuel costs, and diesel-guzzling first mates. Bring along some beverages to chill in the on-deck fridge, kick it in the shade using the remote-controlled conversion-top cockpit cover, then blast your favorite environmental yacht-rock hits on the four-speaker marine stereo system as you inhale charming snapshots of The Pier and downtown St. Petersburg. The safe, reliable nautical navigator gently ripples through the waters at about five miles per hour, permitting safe dives from its swim transom and stomach-friendly, splash-resistant visits to the onboard sink, shower, and private restroom. Though not included with today's Groupon, a propane grill is available for rental at $28 per rental. Call ahead to make a reservation.
The fleet of two-seater scooters is comprised of 2009 models with 49cc engines. Although these sportsters can zip around town at optimal cruising speeds, no motorcycle license is required—just a driver's license, eye protection, and a strong understanding of astrophysical thermodynamics as it pertains to scootering. The surrounding area is prime for pavement thrashing. For two hours, wheeled explorers can park and play on the pristine white-sand beaches, zip over to one of the area restaurants, or Evil Knievel over one of the bays, explaining the required $250 security deposit for each rider.
Spread across 50,000 square feet, the Armed Forces History Museum's collection boasts rare military vehicles, re-creations of historic battlefields, and artifacts with a militaristic purview that spans from WWI through current conflicts. Smoke machines and battlefield sound effects simulate the fog of war in a replica WWI trench and a Japanese battleship flight deck. A motion-simulation theater hydraulically emulates pitch and yaw as passengers' eyes alight with scenes from the Battle of Iwo Jima or Operation Desert Storm.
In the open terrain behind the museum, a fully functional WWII-era M8 armored vehicle seats four passengers in its turret and open-air compartments as it rumbles off-road for a quick thrill ride.
