Visit to The Dinosaur Store & Museum

What to do on a rainy day when you can't visit the beautiful beach?  You go to The Dinosaur Store and Museum instead.  Wow, what a treat this place was.  We really didn't expect such a grand museum of dinosaurs and ancient artifacts.

The dinosaurs are life size and placed in their most likely habitats.  There are ancient artifacts with signs explaining what you are looking at, science videos to watch and docents walking the floors to answer any of your questions.  

We were there over 2 hours before we realized it!  This a great educational outing for children.  Today we were with a 4 year old and she was impressed.

After you tour the 2nd and 3rd floor of the museum you can visit the great store, with toys, books, puzzles, T-shirts, rocks and jewelry made from precious stones.  We walked out with a sticker book, a great looking T-shirt for the 4 year old and a fun fridge magnet.  

There is an interactive play/exhibit area that costs extra, but we didn't have the time to take a look.  It sounded like fun though--the kids were laughing and running around.

Cost for the Museum of Dinosaurs & Ancient Cultures:
Adult: $14.00
Senior 60+: $12.00
Child 3-11: $10.00

Cocoa Pad is Ready!

Cocoa Pad is a studio apartment in the former garage of Cocoa Girl Cottage.  For years we used this area for storage and sometimes overflow guest use.  In the Fall of 2018 we emptied the room, put in new flooring, repainted all, installed a new AC/Heat mini split unit, spiffed up the furnishings and decorated the space in a travel Bohemian style.  Now it is a super cozy, comfy, clean landing area for a traveling couple, a person on a business trip or as always, for overflow use by guests staying in Cocoa Girl Cottage.  And best of all--we are PET FRIENDLY!!!  Photos of the new space:

Cocoa Pad is available to rent by itself on a per night rate, or it can be rented along with the main home, Cocoa Girl Cottage.  Please give us a call for rental rates/information.  Hope to see you soon!
