Doral Golf Resort
Five courses, including the world-famous Blue Monster, make this resort top-notch.

The Monster
Even PGA stars cringe when they approach the 18th hole of the famous Blue Monster course during the Doral-Ryder Open. It's been called one of the most challenging finishing holes on the Tour. The combination of near-perfection in landscaping and interesting golf challenges at each turn has kept the par-72 Blue Monster course among the top in the country for years.

Elsewhere on the Course
Doral offers a veritable rainbow of golfing choices. The par-72 White Course plays 6,208 yards; the par-71 Red Course offers 14 water holes; the par-70 Gold Course, redesigned by Raymond Floyd, boasts narrow fairways and water holes; and the par-71 Silver Course is famous for its signature 14th hole. If that's not enough, there's a nine-hole, par-3 Green Course.

 

National Car Rental Center
Home to the Florida Panthers and many a pop concert.

The Skinny
In October 1998, Celine Dion's concert officially opened the National Car Rental Center, but make no mistake about it, this venue is first and foremost the home of the Florida Panthers. Even the address says Panthers. The $172-million arena, known by many as the NCRC, helped move the Panthers from the NHL's smallest venue (the Miami Arena at 14,703) to its newest (holding 19,452).

Getting to Know NCRC
It features extrawide concourses, 88 luxury suites, more than 7,000 on-site parking spaces, three times the number of required bathroom facilities, and six food courts. Two of the food courts even offer westward views of the magnificent sunsets in the Florida Everglades. Panthers fans also enjoy the permanent 5,400-square-foot team store. The arena hosts a number of events including NCAA basketball (capacity 20,184), concerts (20,876), boxing (20,763), and the circus (19,148). And its location on I-75 makes it accessible to all in South Florida.
