The Florida Renaissance Festival is a wholly different world––a world of jousts and costumes and turkey legs. Here be dragons, or so the armor-clad knights would have you believe. At the festival, live shows recreate the romance of the Renaissance with references to Shakespeare and swordplay on 12 different stages. Meanwhile, merchants share the secrets of their crafts, blowing unbreakable glass for spectators and selling hammered pewter goblets. Visitors, dressed in period garb or not, can wander on their own, exploring the shows and stalls, or trying their hands at games of chance while gnawing on scotch eggs and chocolate cheesecake.
Since 1951—The Classic Gateway Theatre has dimmed the lights for crowds of moviegoers. The theater continues to celebrate the classics that came out during its early years by playing hits starring the likes of Cary Grant, though it does not shy away from first-run blockbusters and indie flicks. Audience members walk into a spacious lobby with pictures of the theatre's long history gracing the walls and they savor the smell of popcorn before settling into their seats in renovated all-digital auditoriums. In addition to regular screenings, the theater plays host for events such as the Fort Lauderdale Gay & Lesbian Film Festival.

The original Strikers were born in 1977, when the Miami Toros moved to Broward County. Donning their popular red-and-gold hooped uniforms, the team experienced instant success—so much so that Lockhart Stadium underwent two seating expansions to accommodate the club's rapidly growing fan base. During those years, a playoff game between the Strikers and New York Cosmos drew a crowd of 77,691, which still stands as the record for a U.S. Pro League soccer match and most people squished into a single soccer net.
Even with all their success, the Strikers relocated to Minnesota after the 1983 season. The team returned five years later, and for more than two decades, competed as part of several leagues. Finally, after a failed attempted to bring Major League Soccer to Miami, the Miami FC of the United Soccer League decided to officially adopt the Strikers moniker and move to the North American Soccer League for the 2011 season. The Strikers didn't waste any time announcing their rebirth, as they made the league's championship series that same season.
