  4. I drove past Dinosaur World hundreds of times when I lived in Florida, and I never once stopped there because I just knew the best part of it was what I could see from interstate. But, I was wrong, the rest of it looks to be just as cheesetacular.

    I'm really surprised anything is sitting empty on I-Drive for very long. Bennigan's closed most of their locations two or three years ago, and that road is so jam-packed with tourists year-round that you'd think someone would have built something else there by now.

  5. I enjoyed the heck out of Dinosaur World. I don't know how today's kids would feel about anything non animatronic...

    There is quite a lot of empty space on International Drive. I'm sure some of it's retail churn, but as you say, the Bennigan's has been on the market for a couple of years. Here's some others:

  6. I don't know why I didn't mention this sooner, but March 19, the USPS Columbia AMF on the cargo ramp at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport closed. It is located at 3501 Air Commerce Drive off of Platt Springs Road.
