I enjoyed seeing and reading about the renovations. The buildings were amazing! My husband enjoyed a straight edge razor shave, we both enjoyed Cuban coffee, and we purchased cigars to bring home.

I have seen dogs on leashes but I would call the Florida Convention Center or Pirate Bay River Taxi. Someone there will be able to better assist you on rules and regulations. It's beautiful, enjoy!
