I am not being sarcastic at all when I say that Flagler Beach, Florida has its charms. The beach is great, and the dunes to the north and south of it are beautiful. However, I probably would never have gone there if my parents didn't live in neighboring Palm Coast.
That said, if I were to go to Flagler and my parents (or, for that matter, anyone else I know) didn't live nearby, I'd want to stay at the Si Como No Inn. For one thing, I prefer family- or locally-owned hostelries to chains. For another, Si Como No embodies what's cool and friendly about the hippie/beach bum lifestyle and mentality.
I also can't help but to love a place that has signs like this above the entrances to its rooms:
"Girls Just Wanna Have Sun". I'm sure Cyndi Lauper would approve.

Whether or not you fish (I don't), and whether you're a man or a woman, I hope that you're having fun and that the coming year is bountiful for you!
