Pet friendly Flagler beach resort, Si Como No Inn!

I recently had the pleasure of staying at a cool pet friendly beach resort with some friends, so I thought I’d tell you a bit about it. More and more people are traveling with their pets these days and good pet friendly resorts can be hard to come by.

This resort is called Si Como No Inn and it’s located right on the beach at Flagler beach. That is north of Daytona beach and just south of Palm Coast. Like I said it sits right on the beach, you only have to cross Oceanshore Blvd. and go down the steps to the beach!

Not only is Si Como No Inn resort very pet friendly but so is the beach right across from it. As you can see in the video I made above that stretch of beach is beautiful with not that many people around. So it’s perfect for pets, just please clean up after them. 😉

Walt Disney World Golf Courses now Palmer Golf Courses

Disney turns golf courses over to Arnold Palmer group

Well everyone, looks like the next time you play some golf on one of Disney’s golf courses, they really are not Disney’s anymore. Seems as thought with many other golf courses around the area it’s not as profitable anymore for Disney.

At least not as profitable as they want to be for the time they put into them. So they are turning over the day to day operations over to the Arnold Palmer Group management company.

Yes that is the same famous Palmer golf player. It will be Disney’s 5 golf courses; the Palm, Magnolia, Lake Buena Vista, Osprey Ridge and Oak Trail golf courses.

Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights 2011 Haunted Houses, shows

Universal Studios Halloween Horror nights 2011

It’s time once again to tell you what will be going on at this years Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights 2011! Last year I was a bit disappointed as everything seemed the same, so to speak.

But this year they seem to be mixing it up a bit so maybe it will be worth the price. Each year they have a central theme, or head horror character. This year that character seems to be Lady Luck.

As it says in their official Halloween Horror nights website, try your luck at staying alive during horror nights and hope your luck does not run out! Sounds pretty cool to me.
