For those of you who are wondering how the Gulf Oil spill is affecting Florida, it's good news! Previously affected Pensacola and Panama City Beaches both reported no oil on their beaches, no oil slick visible on the water and no oil smell today.
To encourage you to visit Florida's beaches, for my beach series this week, I'm reminding you that the beach isn't just for swimming or sunbathing with 10 Things To Do at the Beach.
So visit Florida's beaches and don't be afraid to book your hotel. There are many hotels with no-oil guarantees in place from the Panhandle to Clearwater Beach to Key West. The no-oil guarantees vary from a full refund if oil washes onto the beach during your stay — to a refund of remaining vacation days if the beach is closed due to oil during your stay. Be sure to check with your hotel's no-oil policy at the time of booking.
