Sea urchins are the healthiest, most relaxed creatures on Earth due to their positive self-image and spiny skin. Today's Groupon offers similar protection from stress, sickness, and sea otters: for $39, you get a private acupuncture session with Theresa Rizzo-Ovia (up to an $85 value).

Certified acupuncture specialist Theresa Rizzo-Ovia attempts to alleviate pain and ill health through the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture, which targets ailments that range from minor aches to long-term disorders. In an initial consultation for new clients, Rizzo-Ovia examines each patient's tongue, pulse, energy meridians, and opinion of L.A. Lights sneakers, then maps out a personalized treatment plan based on her diagnosis.

Depending on treatments needed, patients lie in a private room for up to 45 minutes as sterile, hair-thin, and calorie-free needles are arranged strategically along the body's local energy channels and CBS affiliates. Many acupunctured clients fall asleep during this period of deep relaxation, dreaming of floating in herbal tea while Encyclopedia Brown explains the universe.

Tidewater Tours

The experienced guides at Tidewater Tours lead visitors throughout the Cedar Keys and Suwannee National Wildlife Refuges, giving them an up-close view of the tidal marsh eco-system and area wildlife. Their Suwannee River Tour explores the swampy environment of the famed waterway—immortalized in Florida's state song—and the Coastal Marsh tour takes passengers along a route that other boats rarely travel so they can spot migratory shorebirds with the help of Captain J. Michael O'Dell, a National Audubon Society member. And the Island Tour adventures to the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge islands, where dolphins, birds, and sea turtles can sometimes be seen, depending on the season and whether the animals are on their lunch breaks.

The captains helm the Megan June, whose shallow draft allows it to go where other boats can't, and the Princess Annie, a handicap-accessible vessel that can hold up to 34 passengers. And those who'd like to go off on their own explorations can rent a pontoon or skiff boat.
