XmasGiftFilter - In-laws recently retired to Jacksonville and we're going there for xmas. Help me find local experience gifts for the couple who has everything (and just downsized their lifestyle).

My in-laws are awesome people! They just (last week) moved homes, and downsized quite drastically for them, so they're not bound to be interested in accumulating more stuff.
About them: They're in their early 70s, with limited mobility. They're progressive democrats who've been active in their (Episcopal) church and with homeless and senior communities. They have a cat and are mourning a beloved dog. They like colonial antiques, Americana, and farmhouse style stuff, which is usually our go-to for their gifts. They love to eat, especially French, BBQ, and other American fare. They don't drink, and they already have an iPad. They're not particularly art or music lovers.
We'd be interested in getting them experiential gifts, especially in and around their new area in Jacksonville: Lakeshore South. They have a car and aren't afraid to use it. Bonus points if this gift introduces them to more people they might like or a place they would find interesting enough to return to.
So far I've come up with the idea of a gift certificate to a nice local restaurant. But they tend to do it up for xmas, so I'm looking for a few more ideas I can use. Thanks in advance for your help!
