Dog Days of Summer

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Here we are in the Dog Days Of Summer. It’s hot outside but we need something to do before school starts again.   What to do? It’s always fun to get away to the beach or a refreshingly cool swimming pool to laze away the days and drink an ice cold beer. Many Florida Inns are on waterfront of some sort and many have pools. Innkeepers are always willing to help make your stay the most enjoyable for you to relax, refresh and have lots of fun. Check out an Inn to spend these final days of summer.

Happy Father's DayFather’s Day Ideas For Every Type Of Floridian Dad

Father’s Day is coming upon us quickly so it’s crunch time for making plans. Knowing that not all Dads are made the same…we have come up with several options that may work for your special man. Show him how much you care with a Gift Certificate to a Florida Bed and Breakfast Inn! Whether your Dad is/does:

Enjoys a fine meal ~ There’s nothing like al fresco dining on the water. Or is a no-frills dad who’d rather go out for burgers and beer ~ Perhaps taking him to a sports bar for casual dining and watching a game.

For the dad who loves to get out and move, enjoy a little adventure and spend time with the family: Why not try a picnic? Florida has beautiful Local and State Parks with plenty of activities such as nature trails, kayaking, paddle board, bike trail, nature cruises, canoeing, hiking or perhaps an airboat ride through the Everglades…something for everyone in the family.

Does Dad like fishing? There are several fishing piers throughout the state, state parks or chartering a boat for deep sea fishing which may be more his style.

 Does Dad think he’s a golf pro? There may be more than 1,000 golf courses in Florida offering a short course for beginners, greens with varying elevations, wetland areas that attract wildlife or semi-private courses offering various tee times.

 For the dad who just wants to unwind: Give him a spa day… Yes, men enjoy spas too. Florida has some of the Best Spas in the country. Or “Dad can always bro it up at ManKind—a spa for men—where all services come with a complimentary beverage (beer or wine). The establishment recommends its One of a Kind shave, which is great for men with sensitive skin. Alternatively, you can make dad a massage appointment (as long as mom is OK with the all-female spa staff) or let a real shoe-shine specialist spiff up his kicks.”

Is Dad a Fan of History? There are countless museums, notable estates, other historical buildings, or cultural art museums across Florida where Dad can enjoy the days of yesteryear.Father's Day
