From its North Lauderdale and Davie locations, Galaxy Skateway launches visitors into a vortex of nifty moves, groovy tunes, and wholesome family fun. Throughout the week, both venues crank up energy levels with special events. On Fridays and Saturdays, doors remain open later into the evening, and on Flashback Thursdays, music from the 1970s and 80s helps skaters explore the past without having to spin super fast to induce time travel. But no matter the day or decade, Galaxy always surrounds its guests with an impressive lineup of amenities, including a full-service snack bar, video game areas, a pro shop, and a full fleet of regular and in-line skates, available for rental.
When golfers play a round on either the East Course or the West Course at Orangebrook Golf and Country Club, they walk in the footsteps of greats such as Jack Nicklaus and Babe Zaharias. The courses may not be Augusta National, Pinehurst No. 2, or some other example of golf's hallowed grounds, but having been built in 1933 and 1959, respectively, they have been around for the game's rise from nascent diversion to internationally loved sport. The courses even attained a degree of fame as the host to the Women's International Four-Ball tournament—the longest-running women’s amateur event held at one location in the United States.
Continuing to this day, both layouts challenge players with frequent water hazards, doglegs, and long par 5s, including a 592-yard hole on the East Course and a 560-yard hole to close out the West Course and send players somersaulting into the club restaurant.

18-hole, par 72 course
Total length of 6,574 yards from the back tees

Upon entering The Native Village, before you even spot a loitering tortoise or run your finger across the scales of a baby alligator,
you'll catch a whiff of wood fire. That scent acts as a drifting reminder of the village's purpose, which is to give visitors a glimpse into how the Seminoles lived in the Everglades during the early 1900s.
For more than 30 years, The Native Village has educated guests with guided tours and live demonstrations of gator wrestling and snake handling. Today, you can stop by the property's Big Oak habitat, where alligators, caimans, and crocodiles live side by side and, consequently, have to share the same tube of toothpaste. At the Gator Hole, Lunge—a 13-foot, 1,000-pound bull alligator—stuns onlookers but doesn't faze the wrestlers wrangling him into submission with their bare hands. But the village is home to cute creatures, too. You can get your daily dose of awws by visiting Chain Saw the prairie dog, Ghost the fox, and a whole roster of other mammals, reptiles, fish, and fowl that lived alongside the early 20th-century Seminoles.

What would you do to survive if the dead began to walk—or worse, to sprint? Brave individuals can find out at Zombie Rush obstacle course. The apocalypse conveniently starts the moment runners set foot on the event grounds and receive the keys to their survival: three flags that the nearby zombies want even more than they want brains or a decent moisturizer. Participants must protect those flags while traversing five kilometers of muddy obstacles, ever wary of the shambling threats that lurk in the shadows. Alternately, they can sign up to be the shambling threats themselves, and have their zombie makeup applied by professional artists. No matter which faction they choose, everyone makes up afterward at the Compound, where beer is served, music is played, and performers re-enact thrilling perimeter breaches.
The frighteningly fun run is one of the many events put on by Ultimate Combatant, an organization specializing in challenging mud races. With a founder and staff made up of firefighters, fitness experts, and members of the armed forces, the company's races aim to test participants' physical and mental prowess.
