Jennifer’s Yellow Pages

yellow-pages-logo2

Whether you are looking for a handyman, CPA, contractor, insurance or other referral to help keep your property in tip top shape and your taxes even better, refer to the Service Providers section of my Yellow Pages.  If you have someone to recommend please let me know!

There is so much more than service providers in these pages, however.  Need to know about marinas in the area?  You will find a list of them here.  How about pet-friendly places to visit or other pet related specialties?  Visit Pet Pages.  Golf Courses?  Activities to do when friends and family come to visit (you know they will…you are lucky enough to live in the place where people come to vacation!)?  All of that information and more are contained within these Yellow Pages.

Miami is starting to develop a strong art presence with several museums, galleries, and cultural event nights.  Many of the museums and other art/cultural organizations offer free events.  Using Culture Shock, students 13-22 can by tickets to many cultural events for $5.  For those 62 and older, there is the Golden Ticket.  So there is no excuse…get out there and immerse yourself !

Miami-Dade Cultural Affairs

There are several areas in South Florida that are pet friendly.  Coconut Grove, Miami Beach, South Miami, are the main ones.  In addition, there are parks and beaches specifically for dogs, doggy day cares, and places that offer yappy hour.  Although it may sound like it is mostly dog friendly, don’t be surprised to see people walking their Iguanas, birds, and other exotics.  This is South Florida, after all!

Dog Beaches

Hobie Beach, which is on the South side of Virginia Key on the Rickenbacker Causeway.  Open everday, free.

Hollywood Beach, between Pershing and Custer Streets.  Open 3-7pm, Friday-Sunday only.  Cost $30 for 6 months for residents, $60 for non-residents, or $5/day, $10/weekend.
