Resort Registration Office
Venture Out Resort has made a few changes to the lobby. The new Manager, Anna Stephens,
has really done a great job getting the lobby decorated and looking good. Another change is
they have added a public restroom. The entrance is on the outside of the building on the left
side behind the vending machines. This restroom can be accessed up until 10:pm. Now if you
are playing shuffleboard you will have a place to go.
In the main lobby there are a lot of coupons, booklets, maps and brochures for local attractions.
There is a favorite restaurant list too. Another thing to look for in the lobby is the lending library.
There is a wall of books, puzzles and games. All free for you to use while here in the resort.
You can “take one, leave one” or just borrow one.
Jeannie, Priss, Rob and Allison are the front desk people and are there to help you get
registered and answer any questions about the resort. To help speed up registration,
make sure you have your tag number with you when you go up to the registration desk.
The registration fees have gone up this year. They are now $45, that includes 1 vehicle, if
you have a 2nd car it’s an additional $50 and 3 cars are no longer allowed. Motorcycles are
$20 each after the initial $45. The fees are what helps pay for the resort staff, maintenance
etc. The resort does not receive any revenue from the rental of the units.
Venture Out is buzzing with activity, looks like it’s going to be a great Summer here at the world’s most beautiful beaches. We love all the activity here. It’s such a change from our laid back lifestyle the rest of
the year, don’t get me wrong we love that too, but Summer is a nice change.
June and July are filling up fast. If you need a Summer Vacation do not delay in giving us a call. July 4th week is booked solid. There are a few 2 and 3 night spaces we would love to fill and we will waive the 3 night minimum in some cases. Call for availability.
Summer is a time that everyone gets out to the beach & pool to work on their tan. Please make sure that you protect yourself & your children from sunburn. Even if it is overcast or cloudy you can get a sunburn.
You can even get sun under an umbrella or tent, so make sure to apply sunblock on your children even if they are staying under the tent or umbrella. Don’t forget to reapply several times especially if you are in and out of the water. Skin cancer is a deadly disease that does not discriminate, you don’t have to be fair skin & blond to get it.
Rip currents are common during the Summer on the Gulf Coast. Make sure to look at the flag before entering the gulf. If there is a double red flag, please stay out of the gulf. They indicate that the swimming conditions are unsafe and that there are dangerous rip currents. The flags are there to protect us. We all want you to have a great time here and for you and your family to remain safe! If the
double flags are flying, no problem, we have 2 beautiful pools to swim in and the beach is still great for sand castles, people watching and sunbathing.Don’t forget to check out our Facebook and Twitter and subscribe to the blog.
