      We will be in Holland Michigan a week after the tulip festival to be exact, May 16. Will there still be tulips around that time?

      40 min. layover, can I make it on time?

      Detroit Mar 11, 2015 at 4:52 AM

      I will have a flight from DC to Detroit then connect to another flight 43 min. later to Narita. I wonder how big or easy Detroit airport is and will I make it on time considering they also have to unload/ reload my checked-in luggage. I supposed if the airline sold me ticket I should be able to make it right? I have done transit in an hour but wonder if 40 min. is kind of short. Thanks.

    • 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?

      Mackinac Island 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.

    • Need help planning trip

      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!!!!
