      vacation rental

      Boston May 21, 2015 at 8:06 PM

      Hi
      Does anyone have a recommendation for a vacation rental in the North End? There will be 3 couples and we prefer apartment rental to hotels... I've stay in wonderful places with my small family of 3 but am finding it much harder to find a place to accommodate 6 adults at a reasonable price (3 bedrooms are not necessary)
      Thanks so much!

    • Are there any good coffee shops in Fort Lauderdale other than Starbucks?

      Fort Lauderdale May 7, 2015 at 1:30 PM

      Hello,

      I am from Tampa and will be heading to Fort Lauderdale in a couple of weeks. I usually enjoy independent coffee shops that offer fresh roasted small batch coffee brewed through a French press. I have done some research on yelp and came up with a few local places. If anyone else knows of a good spot please let me know. Here is what I found:

      Sip Java Co - (formally Brew Urban Café) @ 638 N Federal Highway Fort Lauderdale FL. I heard that they carry Intelligentsia, Anodyne and Wells Coffee (all small roasted batches from around the world and you can brew them with a few different methods). Free wifi and good snacks or all day food offerings, tons of seating indoors and outdoors. Very quiet with free parking out front.

      Brew Urban Café - 537 NW 1st Avenue in the art district. They are located in an art studio called C&I studios. Quiet and good locally roasted coffee too.

      Warsaw Coffee Company - 245 E 13th St Fort Lauderdale FL. New coffee shop with lots of seating. They also offer locally roasted coffee from Argyle and have a bakery which pumps out some original and unique pastries. A little more on the pricey side of things and parking is limited.

      The Alchemist - They are located in Wilton Manors which is about a 15 minute drive from Fort Lauderdale. They have a good variety of coffee and pump out some good sandwiches.

      These are some of the best places to enjoy coffee. If you all have any additional info please reply!

    • Commuting Orlando to Auburndale / Lakeland

      Orlando May 4, 2015 at 7:57 AM

      Hello,

      I've yet to find a good answer to this question.

      I will be starting a new job in Auburndale, FL and planned to commute from the north side of Orlando (near I-4). I understand I-4 could potentially be a nightmare during rush hour, but does it depend on the direction you're going?

      Traveling south (I-4 W) during morning traffic and north (I-4 E) in afternoon traffic. Will I generally be going against heavy traffic? Estimated time typically says near 1 hour. Would you expect this to be higher, or relatively accurate?

      I appreciate any insight you could offer...Thanks!

      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
