Tips and Tricks

Here are some tips and tricks from a local resident that wil make your vacation in paradise even more enjoyable.

Offline Maps

Before you embark on your trip to Flagler Beach, download an offline map so that you can still get directions even if you lose cell service or the cell network gets congested. Instructions for both Google Maps and Apple Maps are accessible by clicking on the buttons below.

Use Plenty of Sunscreen

Floridas nickname is the sunshine state thanks to the near year-round sunshine that we get down here. The suns rays can harm your skin and not using proper protection can increase your chance of devloping skin cancer so make sure to use plenty of sunscreen while you are outside on the beach.

Leave 30 Minutes to an Hour Early 

Make sure to leave 30 minutes to an hour early so that you have plenty of time to get to where you want to go since traffic is increasing and congestion is more frequent than ever.

Be Aware of What is in the Water

If you are near a body of water that is not a pool, the ocean, be aware of what is in the water since there is a high likelihood of a gator being in the water. Follow any directions given by signs warning you of gators and don’t make yourself a target of a gator attack. In case a gator decides that it wants to eat you and is coming towards you intending to attack, run in a straight line.

Stay Up to Date with Hurricane Information

Thanks to Floridas unique geographical position we get hit by hurricanes during hurricane season which lasts from June 1 all the way to November 30. Hurricanes can affect your stay in nurmous ways so it is best to keep up to date with the forcast so that you and your family are prepared in case a hurricane does hit Florida.

Make sure you have a compatible transponder for Floridas toll roads

Most of Floridas toll roads have switched to cashless tolling. In order to make your trip more seamless and not having a bill waiting for you in the mail, make sure that your toll transponder works in Florida. Florida accepts SunPass, EPass, Leeway, E-ZPass, NC QuickPass, PeachPass, and IPass.
