    • 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 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.

    • Transportation from Times Square area to Secaucus NJ

      New York City Dec 3, 2014 at 3:32 PM

      I am coming to NYC on a bus trip on a Saturday and want to see a show at the Imperial Theatre at 8:00pm. Our bus is leaving NYC to go to the hotel in Secaucus NJ at 9:00 so I would need to get my own transportation from the Theatre to the hotel in Secaucus. I've heard NJ Transit Bus is the best way, but how do I do that and how do I know ahead of time that it's possible? We'd get out of the show around 11pm and Penn Station seems to be where we'd get the bus. I'm not a city! Thanks!

    • Statue of Liberty

      New York City Dec 10, 2014 at 12:44 PM

      My daughter and I have seen the Statue of Liberty; my husband has not so we need to do this. What is the best/cheapest way? Should we pay to actually walk at the base of the statue, or just do the free ferry, which I believe I've read is the Staten Island Ferry, and how do you get to these places to get on the boats? (We'll be coming into the city on a charter bus that may drop us in lower Manhattan. If it's not lower, it will be in the Times Square area). Thanks!

    • Safety in the South Bronx

      Bronx Dec 13, 2014 at 12:02 PM

      My boy friend and I will be staying in the S. Bronx for three nights leading up to New Years. Reading all of the information on here I'm starting to get a little worried. My boy friend is a dark skinned Italian/Puerto Rican and I am a super light skinned blonde that weighs about 105lbs. Anyone have any tips or advice that will keep us from getting into trouble. Are the metros considered safe during the day or should we take taxis everywhere we go? Are there certain streets or areas we should absolutely avoid?
      I'd also love to know if there are certain places that you recommend we see; restaurants, sites etc.

      Hello everybody!
      Im planning my trip to NY and Im timing my stay at each museum. Im very interested in the three ones that I mention at the title. Im an opera singer, already have tickets for two different operas at the Met. Im also a big lover of animals and science, and art as well. Im planning to take a guided tour at the lincoln center, spending 2-3 hours at the metropolitan museum of arts, and 6 hours at the American Museum of Natural History.
      Consider that I'll stay one night at Washington and I will go to the Smithsonian museums, and Ill be two weeks in LA after that.
      How much time shall I spend at the AMNH and Metropolitan????
      Thanks to all!

      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.

      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?
