want to take some photographs to take home to show off to your
friends and relatives.
Besides it's a visual record of your experiences that you'll
treasure for years to come.
You will find an abundance of services along US Hwy 192 catering to
your photographic skills.
This section will try to give you some direction in this matter...
Let's start with your hotel first...
Depending on where you're staying your hotel may or may not have
photo processing or rolls of film available. If they do, you'll
usually find the services available via the Front Desk and film
available in the gift shop.
Like any convenience you may use at a hotel, you're usually going to
pay a little more for the service.
Our recommendation is just to use any one of the area businesses
that offer film and photo processing. There are many to choose from.

gift shops, photo shops or in any one of the area's pharmacies. All
offer film and related supplies.

film rolls of 24-exposures each. Many times these will be specially

found Wal-Mart to offer the best prices.

Each comes with 24-27 exposures in a 35mm format.
You simply take the photos as you normally would and when you're out
of film, turn in the camera to the nearest photo processors. They'll

Most of the area pharmacies will also offer this service and may
offer you a 2nd set of prints at no-charge.
The area pharmacies are usually open 24-hours a day for your
Special Note: If purchasing this type of camera, always be sure to
see if it comes with a flash as some do and some don't.

attractions, the best prices will always be the camera type marked
specifically for outdoor use.
