The iconic PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, home to the famous Honda Classic and a choice tourism spot, is under contract with the Canadian company Brookfield Asset Management. The resort was last sold to Walton Street Capital for $170 million in 2006 and went up for sale again this June.

PGA features 339 hotel rooms, five 18-hole gold courses, and a 40,000-square-foot spa. Brookfield is purchasing the resort for $255 million, which works out to $752,212 per hotel room.

Fall is officially here, but it's still hot enough to enjoy our beaches and many water activities on the sunny South Florida coast. From a relaxing kayak paddle on the river to swimming with sharks in the deep blue, there's something for every water-lover in Palm Beach County.

1. Go kayaking at one of these parks

Kayaking is one of the most tranquil activities to experience on the water. You can go tandem with a friend in a two-seater or you can go alone and listen to some tunes on a bluetooth speaker.
