Weather Dampens Free Day at Holy Land Experience

The threat of a tropical weather system over Florida kept heavy crowds away from the religious theme park in Orlando today.  The TBN-owned property is required to have an admission free day each year so it can keep its tax exempt status.  Orlando Sentinel business columnist Beth Kassab has an interesting break down on who is really benefiting from the free day.  What do you think?  Isn’t it time for this place to pay its taxes like everyone else?

After months of anticipation and construction, LEGOLAND Florida opened on the site of the former Cypress Gardens in Winter Haven, Florida Saturday.  From all accounts, it was a smooth opening.  Erin over at The Mom Buzz was there for the grand opening and has a positive review of the new theme park.  It looks like a net plus for all of us living in Central Florida.
