      Hello fellow traveler! We will be traveling to Colorado during the 2nd week of August for our first time. We will be renting a cabin for only 2 night in  Estes Park.

      1) Are there any recommendation of specific lodges to rent for the 2 nights? There will be 4 of us, not looking for anything too fancy or expensive because we would like to maximize our time outdoors.

      2) Is there anything specific you would recommend as a "must do" while in Estes Park and National Mountain Rocky Park?

      Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

    • 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 am planning to visit Chicago during the independence day long weekend (4th July) for 3 days . I would be staying around North Oakley Avenue area about 15 min walk to Howard CTA . My tentative itinerary is as below :

      Day 1 : (4th July)

      Visit North Loop & Millenium during the day , Chicago Riverwalk in the evening - both by Free Foot tours
      Is it advisable to be around Navy pier during the 4th July weekend ?

      Day 2:
      Planning to explore the Mag Mile .
      Can 360 Hancock and Willis visited within span of 3-4 hrs?
      I dont have much inclination towards visiting Art Institute( not much of art loving person) , Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum .More suggestions are welcome here.

      Day 3.

      There is some Grand Tour which i came across while going through attractions of Go Chicago Card which is around duration of 4 hrs .Not sure whether this is really good option :)

      Any more suggestions are welcome keeping in mind i wish the day to be spend at leisure rather than too much packed in one single day !!

    • 1 night stay in Palm Springs?

      Palm Springs Yesterday

      Hi. I am visiting California for the first time in September. We land in LA, where we are spending 3 nights, then heading to Sand Diego for 3 nights, then driving up the coast to San Francisco, stopping at various locations.

      My question is whether people would recommend for us to stop at Palm Springs on our way to San Diego, stay for 1 night instead of one of the Sand Diego nights; therefore the new plan would be 3 nights LA, 1 night palm springs, 2 nights san diego, before heading up the coast.

      I would appreciate any opinions or comments.

You cannot imagine how hard they are to find to buy. Do you have website info about shops that sell the river pearls loose, or some shops that have simple jewelry with them?

      Windy things.....

      Iowa Apr 30, 2012 at 12:01 PM

      I know I will be in Iowa (Iowa City, to be exact, although I shall drive around as well) for a week in mid-August.

      I know that Iowa is slap-bang in the middle of 'Tornado Alley'.

      I am a Brit. We do not generally have tornadoes in the UK, and those that we do have (rarely) are very small and very localised. So my question is simply this..what do I do if a) the tornado siren sounds and/or b) I see a tornado when I'm driving around?

      Drive swiftly in the opposite direction? Stay in the car? Park and seek shelter? Try to get inside a building?

      If I ask about things and know what to do, chances are (ime) they won't happen. That's what I've found, anyway....

      What to do, where to go....

      Iowa City Jan 22, 2012 at 9:50 AM

      I am 99.999% sure I'll be staying in IC for several days (probably 5 or 6) in mid-August. Not yet sure how i'll be arriving...still trying to sort out an itinerary within my budget.

      Some of those days will be certainly taken up with other things (the reason why I'm going) but I anticipate having at least 2 or 3 free. I shall hire a car: I know I must!

      So....where shall I go? My real interests are history and archaeology, small places and countryside. But I will almost certainly be by myself, so would be a bit wary of taking long hikes in what I assume will be (for a Brit) hot weather. Gentle countryside strolls would be better.

      All ideas gratefully received. :-)
