      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.

      I want to see both Fort Gaines and Fort Morgan, and get the best view I can of the Sand Island and Middle Bay Lighthouses. What would be the best way to go about all of this, and can it be done in a day? Also need to know a good not-so-pricey hotel nearby, but outside of the immediate area, heading West towards LA. Any ideas? Thanks for any responses!

      What Fort is cooler- Morgan or Gaines?

      by Amanda.greenlee Online Now Jun 13, 2012 at 9:11 PM

      Hello! :)

      We are going this weekend and we have 3 kids (1,3 and 6). The older two boys are BIG in castles right now and we just studied the civil war. So they will love these Forts. Which one is better for kids, more "wow"? More canons? Any tunnels? You can just tell me which you like for whatever reason. :)\
      We only have one morning and do not think we can do both, we are driving to Johnson's Beach, so we cross the bay anyways.

      Thank you anyone for your feedback.

    • Tell me why?

      by mgs8015 Online Now Aug 27, 2008 at 3:34 PM

      I'm a mid-west person(St.Louis Mo.)who had planned on visiting Satellite Beach Florida again where my sister-i- law owns a condo right on the beach.Have been there several times which I guess makes it an easy destination since I know where everything(stores,restaurants etc).
      This time a larger group of people that usual will be going which means driving instead of flying.Since it's approximately an 18hr. drive to Florida I stared looking for somewhere closer that we could go to relax and enjoy the beach with the kids.
      Not being familiar with the gulf coast area which is a seven hour shorter drive to the beach.I checked out the more popular areas Gulfport etc.When I ran accross Dauphin Island Alabama.Would someone familiar with the area please tell me I'm not dreaming!Affordable housing on a beautiful white sand beach!!Is it too good to be true or is a best kept secret?
      Any info would be greatly appreciated.Thank You
