      Wheelchair access for the Parks

      Burlington Sep 13, 2015 at 3:35 PM

      Hi everyone, hope you are all good today :)

      My Grandmother is visiting me in Montreal next month and we really want to take a short trip across the border to Vermont (or New York) so that she can see the countryside in the Fall. Whilst she can walk she tires easily so she will use a wheelchair when outdoors.

      Where can we go that is wheelchair accessible ?
      I am thinking along the Champlain Lake, any must see places?

      We only have 3 days and whilst we do want to get as much out of these days as possible I do not want to over tire my Gran (she is 85).

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

    • 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?

      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

      Michigan Jun 20, 2014 at 8:04 AM

      My husband and I have decided to go to MI for our anniversary, I've always wanted to go, but we've always opted for the closer north shore in MN, not this year. Were driving from MN, now I want to go to Michigan mainly for the beautiful beaches that look like the ocean(since we don't want to go the airfare route) I also think the drive at least will be beautiful. So I've been looking at traverse city, staying at the Country Inn and suites, driving up on Wednesday August 27th, leaving Sunday, so 4 nights. Then my husband brought up picture rocks, and thinks maybe breaking up the drive and staying the first night in Mounsing(?) then driving to Traverse staying 2 nights, and then going back to picture rocks and staying one more night, then heading home.

      Now I'm looking to explore, and see beautiful sights, but also wanting to relax, I don't want to go go go every hour, I want to spend some nice time reading a book on the beach, away from the kids, and I do in home childcare with 12 kids this summer everyday. So looking for help planning an itinerary sort of.

      I also read South Haven was beautiful, Its a shorter drive by a couple hours getting there, but would go no where near picture rock.

      Please help me, I need to get this figured out as its over labor day, and hotels are filling.

      Thank you soooo much!!!!
