NEED TO KNOW
Many beaches, parks and festivals don’t charge an entrance fee, or if they do, it’s only a few dollars. If you do run out of cash, ATMs are everywhere from convenience stores to festivals. Many stores allow debit card users to obtain “cash back” above their purchase without a transaction fee. Most banks are open Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM, however, TD Bank has locations open every day, except major holidays.
Banks and government offices, including the post office, are closed on major US holidays. Most attractions remain open year-round. Holidays are listed in the back of this guide in our Resource Directory.
Florida’s base sales tax on purchases is six percent, with some counties adding discretionary taxes. In addition to pet deposits, most hotels charge a “bed” tax and some will add a “resort or amenities tax” and even parking fees.
