1. Go with the Flow
New Smyrna Beach
No need to paddle upstream on a stand-up paddle board in New Smyrna. East Coast Paddle tour's pontoon boat drops you amid mangrove islands to glide with the current. Recharge on the porch of the waterfront Night Swan Bed & Breakfast.
2. Harness the Wind
Fort Myers Beach
Earn sailing stripes with the Offshore Sailing School at the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Spa on Fort Myers Beach. The program includes classroom and on-the-Gulf lessons, plus a solo sail. Sleep at the Pink Shell too. With sweeping gulf and bay views, you'll be wanting to get right back on the water in no time.
3. High in the Sky
Soar in a tandem hang glider above woodlands at Wallaby Ranch; then try the Zipline Safari at Forever Florida in St. Cloud. Sleep at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate where you can dine in one of their five on-site restaurants or recharge on the 850-foot lazy river.
4. River Rambling
Rhesus monkeys, introduced in 1938 to add intrigue to the glass-bottom cruises, still swing between bald cypress trees on the Silver River. Canoeists usually spot turtles, mullet and blue tilapia in this outdoor sancturary. Stay at the charming Waterfront Inn , where you're just a few minutes from live music, restaurants and shopping. End your day with stargazing over glassy Lake Sumter.
