Campground, Hotel Post Discounts For Those Forced From Homes

In response to the mudslides in Santa Barbara County, Flying Flags RV Resort & Campground and neighboring sister property Sideways Inn in Buellton are offering a 20 percent discount and waived pet fees for those who have evacuated their homes.

After accommodating those affected by the Thomas Fire, the Highway West Vacations locations in Buellton have extended a similar offer to further assist any neighbors that may be in need.

The sites offer amenities such as a laundry facility, on-site eatery, dog park, and swimming pools.

Christopher King, Sideways Inn general manager, said the idea to offer this assistance was an easy decision.

“As soon as we heard about the devastation caused by the mudslides, we knew we had to help,” he said. “It is our mission to provide services that not only benefit our guests but contribute positively to our community.”

To redeem the discount, guests can visit the Highway West Vacations website and use the code HWVRELIEF20.

In addition to the discounted rates, Flying Flags said it will be hosting a Fight the Fire Benefit on Saturday, Jan. 13, to help generate funds for the Thomas Fire victims.

The event, open to all ages, will feature local food, beer and wine vendors, raffles, live and silent auctions, and live entertainment. All proceeds will be donated directly to the United Way of Ventura County.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
