  • Deering Estate at Cutler
    Although he earned his fortunes as a businessman, Charles Deering's true passion was for art and culture. He filled his home with sculptures, drawings, paintings, and other works—some of which he created himself. After he passed away in 1927, The Deering Estate at Cutler has kept his spirit alive; his former home and its surrounding natural landscapes now operate as a cultural meeting place for the community—one that hosts art festivals, artist lectures, and The Living Artist Concert Series. Size: a 444-acre natural and archeological preserve and historic site that's listed on the National Register of Historic Places The Buildings: the Richmond Cottage (originally built in 1896) and the Stone House (built in 1922) Eye Catcher: a 20th-century, Spanish Gothic Revival chandelier that has hung in the Stone House's library since its construction Permanent Mainstay: the photographs, pencil sketches, and portraits (some by Mr. Deering himself) that hang inside the Stone House Don't Miss: a tour of the fossil grounds, where specimens have been found that date as far back as 50,000 years Hidden Gem: Charles Deering's prohibition wine cellar, hidden behind a three-ton bank vault door that remained sealed for 40 years Outdoor Activities: butterfly walks, guided nature hikes, and canoe trips to Chicken Key, a 7-acre mangrove island Leave Your Mark: head to the Poetry Kiosk in Richmond Cottage, where you can add your own thoughts about the natural surroundings to a "Living Poem" published on the center's website

  • Santa's Enchanted Forest
    Giant toy soldiers clothed in thousands of colored lights wave at passersby as glowing reindeer take off into the dusk. Towering Christmas trees topped with stars glimmer and glisten with blue and green fiber optics. At Santa's Enchanted Forest, one of the world’s largest Christmas-themed amusement parks, holiday spirit and festive music fill the air long before the end of December. Visitors laugh and shriek on a multitude of carnival rides, including whirling swings, bumper cars, tower drops, and roller coasters, whipping through the air until their cheeks are as rosy as old Saint Nick’s. Traditional carnival games are also on hand, such as dart tosses and soccer-ball kicks, to complement more unconventional carnival amusements such as giant plastic balls to roll around in and a rock-climbing wall to scale. Wee visitors, meanwhile, can make the acquaintance of small livestock in a petting zoo or draw a portrait of their favorite goat in royal costume on a wall-size coloring-book mural. Carnival food, such as barbecue, pizza, and cinnamon donuts, fuels guests as they conquer rides or take in the Cats of the World Tiger Show, the Cirque Equinox, or the Sea Lion Splash Spectacular.

    For 20 years, Donna Mole woke up at 4 a.m. to get her horses ready for a full day of riding, managing up to 50 horses at once as she trained jockeys and groomed thoroughbreds for racing. After that, she switched gears, choosing instead to watch the sun rise in such places as Kenya, France, Ireland, and Australia as she taught students who desired to see the world from the saddle. Headquartered in Florida at her own ranch, At Ascot Farm, Donna—along with her right-hand equestrians Carissa Baskett and Charlotte Harris—works with both adults and children as young as two, tailoring to the needs and personal goals of each student as they learn to develop proper riding to avoid a fall.

  • Arcade Odyssey
    Questions for Rick Medina: Owner of Arcade Odyssey We talked to Arcade Odyssey's owner Rick Medina, pictured here with just a portion of his vast video game collection. This image garnered lots of social media attention, including a run on the front page of Reddit. When did Arcade Odyssey open? December 27, 2011. What inspired you to start this business? I guess you can say I've been collecting games for over 25 years… I was always captivated by them, and I was also captivated by the technology behind them. It was a natural step to go from the collection to an arcade. Do you have any fond memories of the arcade so far? We've had quite a few tournaments. We've done cosplay. I really like when people come up and say, "thank you for building this." What kind of games are in the arcade? When you walk in the door, right off the bat we have pinball. We're the only pinball place left. There isn't pinball anywhere... We have dancing games. We have shooters. We also bring in imported games from japan, china and korea, giving players an opportunity to try a game they might never had a chance to play. We have pretty much everything you can imagine. We also have consoles like Xbox 360's,Imported 360's, PS3, Wii's & now even PC's. Any favorites? I love to bring in a lot of weird and obscure titles from Asian countries like Japan and China. I want to give customers a chance to experience games that they've never played before in their entire lives, Sometimes when I'm walking around, I'll even put in a few tokens and play some of the imports with everyone, just to open their eyes and show the players how much enjoyment playing something completely different can be. Who knows, you may find a new favorite game. What else makes your arcade different? We are the only arcade in the world that changes out at least four to eight games every single month. Many of them we do by customer request. What's the future look like for Arcade Odyssey? Eventually, we want to build the world's first video game museum, showcasing not only the history, but also showing systems and games from all around the world, combine that with an even larger arcade, a bar, and quite a few other surprises coming down the road - trust me you'll love them. We want to build something that's sort of like a nerd entertainment mecca. We even want to incorporate a comic book store in here. We're only on stage two of about seven, so keep watching and be amazed. Quick Facts About Arcade Odyssey Most games only cost one or two tokens Some arcade cabinets have live-streaming capabilities Domestic/imported console and PC gaming available The arcade sells imported Japanese snacks The arcade website keeps track of all the current games The arcade also participates in nationwide high score tracking Learn More Miami NewTimes named Arcade Odyssey "Best Arcade Miami 2012" Twitch streams many of the arcade's live events Check out photos of past events on Instagram

  • Jungle Island
    Jungle Island White sand beaches, cerulean waters, and towering palms make Watson Island feel like a tropical paradise—complete with a leopard lurking in the undergrowth. Luckily, this jungle cat is safely within the confines of the Jungle Island, which has inhabited the isle for more than a decade. And yet the story of this themed park, which houses everything from exotic birds and primates to rare plants and trees, began more than 75 years ago. The Background In 1936, Franz Scherr established an aviary where the exotic birds could soar uncaged, giving his South Miami park the apt name of Parrot Jungle. In the following decades, the aviary hosted some noteworthy occupants, such as Pinky—a high-wire bicycle-riding cockatoo—and several pink flamingos that appeared in the opening credits of Miami Vice. When the zoo's current owners purchased the company in 1988, they introduced new mammals and reptiles—but when Hurricane Andrew struck in 1992, they were forced to relocate. They settled on Watson Island, and in 2003, finished construction of the animal habitats and 18 acres of tropical gardens, renaming the park Jungle Island. The Highlights Hundreds of animals and plants from around the world call Jungle Island home. Naturalistic habitats contain mammals such as orangutans and a liger; reptiles such as American alligators and pythons; and birds such as African penguins and emus. The gardens house rare plants including cycads and African sausage trees. More than 1.35 miles of covered walking trails wind among the exhibits. Many of these animals feature in daily demonstrations. In Winged Wonders, handlers showcase the antics of colorful parrots, the flight of vultures, and the resident 6-foot cassowary's ability to eat an apple whole. Tale of the Tiger explores the behavior of rare big cats, including four species of tigers. Alternatively, in-depth tours and encounters may bring guests face-to-face with popular primates, or deep into the Serpentarium to feed an alligator in its enclosure and ponder whether snakes could possibly wear neckties.

  • Miami Science Museum
    The Patricia and Philip Frost Museum has spent most of its life outgrowing its digs. It debuted in 1949 as a children's museum, which took off quickly and soon expanded into the Museum of Science and Natural History in 1952. In 1960, it again needed more space and moved to its current site, and now an even larger space is being built, set to open in 2016. But throughout all its physical changes, its mission remains the same, "We inspire people of all ages and cultures to enjoy science and technology, in order to better understand ourselves and our world." Size: as of now, the site stands at 48,000 square feet; plans for the new space will expand that to 250,000 square feet over five levels Eye Catcher: tour the Wildlife Center, where the staffers care for injured wildlife—specifically majestic birds of prey—and release them back into the wild Permanent Mainstay: the Planetarium, where PBS's Jack Horkheimer: Star Gazer was filmed, boasts a 65-foot-diameter domed projection screen Don't Miss: in the late afternoon, the planetarium hosts Legends of the Night Sky Laser Show, which teaches kids how to find constellations using lasers and Greek myths Hands-On Experiments: in Nano, kids manipulate large-scale mechanisms as they familiarize themselves with the principles behind nanoscience Special Programs: the museum’s Sea Lab features beautiful underwater creatures and coral reefs. Guests can get up close and personal as they reach out to touch a starfish or a sea urchin or have a cleaner shrimp nibble at their nails
