      Banner Elk Dec 17, 2014 at 6:29 PM

      My family and I are planning to be in the Banner Elk, Boone or Asheville area for New Year's Eve and Day. Are there good cross country skiing trails in these areas, sledding or tubing? What other activities should we consider as a family?

      Thank you.

      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!

    • 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.

      Craft shops and stamping/heat embossing classes

      by Jackiekg Online Now Sep 14, 2008 at 12:55 PM

      Hi, I hope to visit near Rockville during the month of November - I love crafts (I make greeting cards) and would like to know of good craft shops in the area and if there are classes on stamping/heat embossing. I do this quite often, even teach it, but I have never seen anyone, except on TV, do this, so I'd love to take part in a class. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

    • Commuting to Johns Hopkins hospital from Bethesda

      by nd77 Online Now Feb 22, 2007 at 4:44 PM

      I'll be commuting to Johns Hopkins Hospital from Bethesda for the next year (one year only). I'll need to be there by 7:30a-8a (get on the road between 6:30a-7a) and I will be leaving from between 5p-6:30p. It won't be a fun commute, but I'd like to minimize the pain for a year. The other caveat is that my wife needs to be within walking distance of the metro. The two areas my wife and I are considering living in are:

      1) Grovesnor area of North Bethesda: I'll have easy access to 495 and my wife will be able to walk to the metro.
      2) Downtown Bethesda: My wife will still be able to walk to the metro. However, I'll have a little more difficulty getting onto 495. The best option would seem to be head onto the East-Side Highway and then head north on Connecticut Ave to 495.

      I'm wondering if anyone has insight into the commute overall from Bethesda during those hours, and the commute from Downtown Bethesda to 495. I'm worried that the latter will be troublesome, however we would prefer to live in downtown Bethesda for its amenities.

      Thanks in advance.

      NIH living

      by ct-bound Online Now Feb 6, 2005 at 10:09 PM

      Hi everyone, I've had a lot of good responses in this forum from previous trip-planning questions, so thought I'd try for my 'big move'. I'm going to be starting a job at the NIH in Bethesda, MD in a few months, and will be moving there from Vancouver, Canada. Does anyone have suggestions of good neighbourhoods to live in, within about 10 miles of the NIH? Ideally with good transit to/from NIH nearby? My idea of a 'good' neighborhood to live means within walking distance to coffee shops, a couple restaurants, grocery store and maybe a book store?? Walking distance to a nice park or lake would also really be great, as would somewhere relatively close to paved pathways for cycling or rollerblading?? And of course, somewhere people feel safe enough to walk alone at night and to not have bars on the windows. What is rent like in these areas? I'm hoping for under1200 for a 2-bedroom apartment, or maybe even to buy a place ??? Many thanks for your help :) La
