    • End of June - July

      New York City Sep 22, 2015 at 12:56 AM

      Is there anything major going on that I can't miss around these dates. Looking at going on holidays through here and don't want to miss out anything amazing!

    • Majestic Theater-Question About Seats

      New York City Sep 8, 2015 at 10:36 PM

      I am going to NYC at the beginning of October for the first time, with my husband and brother/sister in law. We are very excited! :) Actually I had 2 questions for anyone out there familiar with the Big Apple:

      1. How cold is it usually in New York at the very beginning of October? I am a Texas girl, loving the heat, and I freeze at 70 degrees. So I'm wanting to take clothes that are warm enough, but not ridiculous, lol. And does it rain a lot during that time of year?

      2. I had to get tickets to Broadway while we were in NYC, so I bought tickets to Phantom of the Opera. I was disappointed, though, that I couldn't get the best seats (center Orchestra reasonably close). They were either sold out or too expensive (I am buying for all 4 of us as a surprise, so it would have been over $800 for those seats). The best seats I could get were LEFT Orchestra, Row K , seats 9, 11, 13, 15. I know that Row K is a pretty good row, but I'm concerned about being so far over on the left :( I was just wondering if anyone else has ever sat in the Right or Left Orchestra, and what it was like?

    • 3 days in or near Athens. What to d?

      Greece Sep 24, 2015 at 10:47 AM

      Our cruise ends in Athens on 10/13 this year. We were in Athens for one day several years ago and obviously visited Acropolis. We also took a city tour but it did not impress us at all.
      We also visited Santorini and Kusadasi (Ephesus).
      This time the cruise will stop at Igoumenitsa, Itea, Olympia (Katakolon), Ephesus, Patmos and will arrive to Athens on 10/12.
      Our flight out is on 10/15 from Athens. So we will have several days there. Our friends recommended Mykonos and Delphi.
      Please come up with recommendations of what to do in or not far from Athens.

    • LGA to Waldorf Astoria

      New York City Sep 21, 2015 at 2:59 PM

      Will be arriving LGA on a Friday late October around 1:30 p.m. Traveling with 2 other ladies and we need to know best way to get to Waldorf at 301 Park Avenue. Have heard of Q70 but then would need to take a subway line and not sure how close we can get...hoping we can all pack lightly and be able to manage our suitcases easily, a bit concerned about lots of stairs to navigate. My question is would it be easier/better to take M60 over the Q70 Ltd. express and for either of these busses what stops are closest to Waldorf, with least amount of walking?

      Thanks in advance for your help!

      I'm trying to get from LaGuardia Airport to an Inn in Lake Placid via mass transportation to the greatest extent such a thing is possible and the cheapest way possible. I'm even considering a car service for of the trek as prices seem to be cheaper than those of traditional cabs. Any and all advice welcome.

      Please help with New Years / Holiday Ski Trip

      by MissKimT Online Now Nov 9, 2010 at 1:06 PM


      We are planning our first trip to Lake Placid for Dec 26 through New Years. I'd appreciate any suggestions or things we shouldn't miss.

      We have a small villa we found on www.vrbo for a great price.

      We are foodies. Besides the big hotel food we plan to avoid, we are looking forward to Caffe Rustica, Brown Dog Cafe & Wine Bar, Ashley's Cafe, Interlaken Restaurant, Milano North, and ... we'll continue to research.

      Any suggestions for New Years? Great places to be?

      One thing we haven't researched yet are the slopes. Looks like there are two. I presume we can get tickets online. We'd probably like 3-4 days of downhill skiing, but would like to try cross-country for the first time.

      Did I miss anything? Thanks in advance!

      Travel between Burlington Vt. and Lake Placid

      by SirIsaacBrock Online Now Jan 18, 2005 at 8:05 AM

      Hoping someone can help me. I have arranged with some friends to go to Lake Placid for a weekend in March. We are coming in from Toronto and driving. Another friend is flying to Burlington from Washington. I'm trying to find a cheap way to get my friend to and from Lake Placid. I actually don't mind picking him up, but I was hoping not to have to drive back on the day we leave. The bus seems to go through Albany and is 10hrs. Flights into Lake Placid or Saranac are expensive. Enterprise Rent a Car will let us drop the car in Burlington ,but it will still cost75 + tax for one day. Any ideas?
