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.

    • 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.

      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 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.

      Hi,
      I have planned to visit Yellowstone and Grand Teton in August end. My Yellowstone part is fixed and I am confident on that. I need some help in planning for Grand Teton.
      01-Sep ==> Leave Grand Village Campground at 9 AM and head towards Grand Teton. After exploring GNTP, leave KOA Campground in evening. Overnight stay at KOA Campground.
      02-Sep ==> Leave KOA Campground at 10 AM (I have return flight from Salt Lake City at 6 PM) and head back to SLC.
      I will have one full day to explore Grand Teton. 42 miles is a loop and I am not able to understand that how should I put places in my one full day. What places should I visit and in what order ? We are not much into hiking, but small one is ok. Mostly we want to see beautiful places.

      Visitor's Center Locations

      by grandmaR Online Now Dec 10, 2009 at 1:39 PM

      My family visited this area including Yellowstone in 1948. We were driving our own car.

      I'm going back again in June 2010 to Yellowstone. My daughter and her family flew into Jackson Hole and rented a car, drove through Grand Teton to Yellowstone and then went to the Black Hills and Montana and went home from there. But not only is it much more expensive to fly into and out of diffeent aiports and to rent a car one way, but I don't want to do that much driving. So I'm flying into West Yellowstone and renting a car and visiting Yellowstone from there.

      I would like to pay a quick visit to the Grand Teton Visitor's Center to get my National Park Passport booklet stamped. Can I do this from West Yellowstone without driving too far? I have been unable to figure out just where the Visito's Ceneters are.

      - Snow cover. I know it can take a while for some of the higher elevations to melt. Any idea what I can expect this year?
      - Temperature. Most nights will be spent in the 8-9k foot range. What should I expect in terms of temperatures?

      My wife and I will arrive in Jackson Hole airport at 3 pm this Friday. The plan is to drive to Teton, stay in a campground for 2 nights, then move to Yellowstone for 6 days.
      I was told by park workers that they always have sites available in campgrounds

      Friday: I guess it will be too late to do/see anything, right or wrong? Are there any places that are spectacular in the sunset or where animals come out to drink at night?

      Saturday: What is the absolutely best way to spend a day in Teton? We are fit and like to hike but open to any activity.

      Are there places to buy food/supplies (store, not restaurant)?

      What car is better to rent? Does it make sense to get a convertible or an SUV?

I'll be attempting an ascent of the Grand via Upper Exum, then descend to Lower Saddle and hoping to proceed west (either directly or indirectly) to the Teton Crest Trail. Is this pure folly?
