No one knows for sure what Lost City, found deep in the Everglades, was used for throughout history. Rumor has it, however, that Al Capone may have used it to produce moonshine in the 1930s.

Others claim it was used as a hideout by thirty to forty Confederate soldiers running from the Union, only to later be killed by Seminole Indians.

This enigmatic three-acre site is located about eight miles south of Alligator Alley. One thing on which experts do agree is the origins of the area. Apparently, it was a prosperous Seminole Village that was later abandoned. Exactly why it was abandoned is still unknown, causing experts to scratch their heads.

State wildlife officials and archaeologists have inspected the area countless times over the years, finding old

All you need is love, especially so close to Valentine’s Day.  However, a little chocolate cannot hurt; it may even help you feel better!

For years, scientists have been trying to unwrap the mystery of chocolate.  What makes it so irresistible? Is it the cocoa beans, caffeine, sugar or any of the hundreds of combinations that raise our spirits and libido? 

Scientists at Cambridge University have conducted MRI’s of the brain and concluded a rather modest explanation.  Neuroscientist, Adrian Owen, of Cambridge University‘s Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre said, “The scientific data suggests that the mood enhancing effects of chocolate do not appear to affect the brain via a direct biological action.”   Scientists concluded that chocolate is linked to

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has released an infographic depicting the 2014 Profile of Homebuyers and Sellers. The report unveiled a great deal of information about who is buying and who is selling their home here in the U.S. and why. The profile includes statistics about their age and income, the home search process, the characteristics of homes purchased and how buyers financed their purchase. The following is a summation of NAR’s findings. 

WHO’S BUYING? 

As of 2014, only 33% of homebuyers across the nation were first-time homebuyers, the lowest percentage since 1987. The year before that, 2013, only 38% of buyers were first time. The other median numbers given by the NAR report include the median home size of 1,570 square feet

Boca Raton is a fun city with lots of things to do with kids!

Boomers

Boomers is a family fun location filled with a variety of rides, games, and entertainment for people of all ages. Some of the exciting things to do include batting cages, miniature golf, go karts, bumper boats, laser tag, rock wall, and game room. Laser tag is especially fun, as visitors are transported into a dark room filled with smoke in a maze-like setting and must “shoot” the other team in order to gain points. As far as the game room, which some argue is the major draw of Boomers, there’s horseracing, dancing, snowboarding, and more. Collect tickets to earn prizes.
