    • RE: car rental; car design centers

      Detroit Feb 19, 2015 at 4:12 AM

      Two Detroit-area questions:

      (1) Please suggest what you think is the best current deal for a one-week economy-car rental
      pick up and drop off at Detroit-Wayne Airport. I've checked on line, of course; but seek recent, local
      feedback, if possible.

      (2) In the Greater Detroit area -- aside from The Henry Ford Museum and the Chrysler Center museum-exhibit -- what in your opinion are the best current car design centers that a curious, medium-experienced adult car buff person
      can visit and learn from?

      Thank you!

    • airline ticket conundrum

      Detroit Feb 17, 2015 at 7:33 AM

      17 February, 2015.

      Dear Fellow Virtual Tourist People,

      I have an airline ticket problem and don't know how to solve it.
      I seek advice, please.

      That is, this last Saturday I booked & paid for a round-trip ticket Europe/USA/Europe -- for a business meeting I have there about a month from now. I am freelance.

      Today (Tuesday) I got word that they changed the date of my USA meeting, and now -- with the ticket I bought last Saturday -- I will arrive four days late for this
      important meeting.

      How can I change or cancel my ticket and not loose the money I have paid? I still need to go to USA -- but don’t want to have to buy a whole new ticket (and forfeit the first round trip ticket!).

      My credit card covers cancellation costs for: (1) medical reasons; (2) a salaried job when starting date for employment suddenly changes; (3) loss of employment; (4) employer suddenly changes my vacation dates.

      Unfortunately I qualify for none of the above.

      How can I change or cancel my ticket?

      By the way, I have already checked with the people I bought the ticket from, and since I have paid fully for this flight (that's now the wrong date!) they will not refund or change my flight.

      Last possibility: can anyone recommend a really good last-minute on line ticket deal site for Europe/USA flights?

      Thank you all very much for whatever advice you might be able to give.

      Yours, a worried traveler: Eurycleia

    • Is it worth going to Mackinac Island or should I spend all of my time near Traverse City?

      by CRS21 Online Now Jul 3, 2014 at 5:25 AM

      We are headed to Michigan from Maryland. We have never been there before and there are so many things to do. Does it make sense to go North and see Mackinac Island and then head down to Traverse City? We do have 2 campgrounds that we have booked. Is is worth seeing this Island vs going to the other beaches? Just trying to get a sense of what to do.

      My boyfriend wants to visit Mackinac Island on 4th of July. His plan is to stay in his tent. Is camping allowed on the Island? Would reservations for a tentsite be necessary? Is it crazy busy on 4th of July there?

      Thanks for your replies. I'm sorry to doubt him, but....

      My question is...Is it worth the extra money to stay on the Island rather than in Mackinaw City? There is quite a price difference, and before I slurge, I would like to know if it is worth it? And, how many days should we allow to see the attractions ont he Island?

      Dog-friendly restaurants

      by mghnrae23 Online Now Jun 25, 2008 at 2:19 PM

      my boyfriend and i are planning a trip to Mack city/island and we were planning on bringing our dog. We have checked around for pet-friendly hotels and ferrys, but we were concerned about eating on the island and wondering where to put him. So, if anyone knows about any resturaunts that allow dogs, that would be helpful. I have found a few, like the Jockey Club and the Waterfront Patio cafe. But if there are more, we would love to know! Thanks for the help!

      HI
      We are going to Mackinaw Island for my Bachlorette party the third saturday of August
      We want to hit the pubs and dance and play a few Bachlorette games.
      We are all 24 years old, except my bridesmaid cousin who is 18.
      Can she get in the pubs and dance (not drink) or will they make her leave?
      Are the Pubs fun?
      I am also considering Midland Street in Bay City
      But I am not sure the bars there will let an 18 year old in
      Any info is welcome
      Thank you
