      Steamboat Springs Dec 6, 2014 at 8:00 AM

      I am going to Steamboat the 2nd week in January and will need to rent skis, boots, poles and helmet. I know if I want convenience I should stick to the mountain, but it's usually more expensive. Maybe not??? Would appreciate some recommendations, as well as some suggestions for restaurants. Also, which is better for transportation from Hayden airport to Steamboat- Alipine vs. Storm Mountain?
      thank you,

    • Opinions about the Linq?

      Las Vegas Dec 18, 2014 at 7:58 AM

      We're planning a trip in late March 2015 and I'm looking for a mid strip place to stay. Stayed at Harrahs some years ago, and don't want to spend the $$$ for Caesar's, The Cromwell, etc. I read an article about how the Linq is much improved over the old Imperial Palace, so I'm interested in opinions from people who have stayed there.

    • Whale watching

      Maui Dec 17, 2014 at 11:51 PM

      I'm going to Maui with my family (5 adults) next week. Someone had suggested going whale watching with the Pacific Whale Foundation. I've looked on their website, and they seem to offer a multitude of packages to do the same thing (so it seems).

      Any suggestions or experiences with these whale watching tours? They seem like a fun family activity for a reasonable price.

      I think the rafting option is a no-go, as my mom can't swim and will be scared to death. She'll want the stability of a boat.

      Thanks in advance!

      Good things for kids in KC?

      Kansas City Dec 13, 2014 at 6:38 AM

      I'm considering taking my nine year old daughter to KC along with another friend who has a daughter the same age. I've browsed some web articles about children's activities in KC and haven't found them all that enlightening so I thought I would ask the VT community where we can take two little girls. We plan to be there between Christmas and New Year's and spend 2-3 days in the city.

      And thanks to all the VTers who have put out their favorite BBQ joints! o need to ask about that one again!

      I would appreciate some advice. In April we are doing an LA road trip and this will include a visit to Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Our plan is to drive to the GC from Vegas and stay one night before heading back to LA via Phoenix. Can you advice what is the best Rim for us to visit at the Canyon and will one night be enough time or should we allow 2 taking into account the drive from Vegas. Also can you recommend accommodation.

    • From BUF Airport to Niagara-on-the-Lake is a Canadian town located in Southern Ontario

      Buffalo Dec 15, 2014 at 4:14 AM

      Hi everyone, I have always wanted to visit Niagara-on-the-Lake is a Canadian town located in Southern Ontario and I guess the day has come now....I know it kinda cold right now this time of winter and thinking to travel when springs comes or summer time. My question is which season are pretty good to visit the Niagara-on-the-Lake....I hope this will be answered by the person who lives there or the person who had seen both season and had good experience. My second question is since I will be coming via a plane to Buffalo Airport and from there I had to take some sort of transportation. Is there any reliable cheaper transportation that takes me straight to the lake? I made a little research and found this website http://buffaloexpresstaxi.com/ claiming that they will provide a sightseeing tour without no waiting charge it sounds pretty good to me but just want to make sure if I have another option. Thank you so much for your relevant information and time.

      Hoping someone can help me with the name of a store located on Gruene Road. It is one of the last stores, if not the last, on the right if you are going towards New Braunsfel, the same side as Gruene Hall. It has very eclectic metal art, signs, etc.; and I recall a wall of very inexpensive jewelry.

      Mushroom picking

      Maine Dec 25, 2014 at 9:07 AM

      Hello VTers,

      I am looking for some advice of where to stay in Maine if I want to go mushroom picking. I will be traveling with a 3 year old. If anybody knows of any specific lodges or B&Bs that would be great. If not, would anybody be able to suggest an area of Maine that's good for mushroom picking. I'll have a cat with me so driving is not an issue.

      I'm trying to show my daughter and my wife the beauty of a northern forest. I'm originally from Belarus and it's pretty far north sp the forests have more pine trees moss and of course chanterelles which is what I'm looking for.

      I hope this is not too complicated and thank you to everyone in advance.

      Will we love Alexandria??

      by canadaczechmauigirl Online Now Mar 30, 2006 at 9:54 AM

      My husband and I are moving to the D.C. area as he is being transferred with his company. We have been living in Maui, Hawaii for the past two years and are originally from Toronto, Canada. I never thought about moving to D.C. and know nothing about it so am currently doing a lot of research. We are looking to rent a 2-3 bedroom that allows dogs as we are looking to adopt one. My husband is of Japanese descent and I am wondering how the community of Alexandria would welcome us. It looks beautiful. We are very active and enjoy hiking and biking. How connected is Alexandria to D.C.? I know the rail and bus system is good. What about the drive to the city? How about biking there?
      Also, are there groups that will connect us to new friends, our age?
      Any information would be so appreciated.

    • Alexandria Options For Staying There

      by Loch-Lomond Online Now Oct 15, 2005 at 12:19 PM

      My partner and I visited Old Town Alexandria back in 2002, I was at a conference in one of the major hotels. We both fell in love with the town, enjoying eating at various places in King Street (including a lovely little ice cream shop near the river), evening walks along the path next to the Potamic River, the ease of travelling to DC - it was such a thrill for both of us to see the White House - and just the general feel of the place. My partner became very ill after this break so it has a special connection for us. Whilst I have a longer term plan of being seconded to work in that part of the world with my partner's health now improved we are looking to see if we could have another vacation there in the short term (next year possibly). For this holiday we'd be taking our son who is 6 years old. My question relates to the options for staying in the Old Town. We've done the major hotel option but I believe part of the holiday experience is getting to know locals so I wanted to ask if any bed and breakfast type options existed where we could stay with a family and really experience the way of life. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance - Kevin.

      I was hoping to receive some advice about relocating to the Alexandria area. Job leads? Housing? Transportation? Help! I visited the Alexandria / Crystal City area briefly last summer and I fell in love. Now I've decided that it would be a great place to live. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone in the area that can give me a heads up. Any advice? I look forward to hearing from you.....
