    • Something to do on Christmas Day?

      Guadalajara 1 hours ago

      I am interested in a tour to do on Christmas Day. Just two adults, no children. We are staying right outside of downtown, Guadalajara and are looking into lake Chapala or any of the shopping tours to Tonala, etc. It doesn't have to be a tour either if we can get there ourselves by taxi--just want to make sure it'll be open on Christmas Day. Any suggestions would be MUCH appreciated. Thank you!!

I know if I want convenience I should stick to the mountain, but it's usually more expensive. Maybe not??? Would appreciate some recommendations, as well as some suggestions for restaurants. Also, which is better for transportation from Hayden airport to Steamboat- Alipine vs. Storm Mountain?

      I'm going to Maui with my family (5 adults) next week. Someone had suggested going whale watching with the Pacific Whale Foundation. I've looked on their website, and they seem to offer a multitude of packages to do the same thing (so it seems).

      Any suggestions or experiences with these whale watching tours? They seem like a fun family activity for a reasonable price.

      I think the rafting option is a no-go, as my mom can't swim and will be scared to death. She'll want the stability of a boat.

      I'm considering taking my nine year old daughter to KC along with another friend who has a daughter the same age. I've browsed some web articles about children's activities in KC and haven't found them all that enlightening so I thought I would ask the VT community where we can take two little girls. We plan to be there between Christmas and New Year's and spend 2-3 days in the city.

    • 5/6 nights in Hawaii - Honolulu, Maui or both?

      Hawaii (State of) Yesterday

      Hi,

      I'm probably going to combine a mileage run with a holiday in Hawaii in July.

      I've never been to Hawaii.

      Honolulu would seem an obvious choice, as I'd like to see the capital and the famous Waikiki Beach. There are also some attractions and museums that I think I'd like to visit. Finally, being a foodie, I'm sure there'll be plenty of options.

      However, I'm afraid that spending 5 or 6 nights in Honolulu may not be particularly relaxing. I wouldn't mind spending a few days just sitting by a beach or a pool without too many people around.

      What would you recommend? Do you think spending some time in both island would be mad considering the short amount of time after so much flying to get there? I can easily get an inbound flight to HNL and a return from OGG though.

      Is it worth putting on a 13 hour return trip and 2 over night stops to see this town. Planning to drive up from Revelstoke and Kamloops then head back to Whistler. Yes the town looks interesting but in all practicality can we justify the mileage and cost - roughly how long will it take to see - possibly compare it to Colonial Williamsburg USA. May be there are interesting places on route to justify this journey. Also thought of visiting Sandon Ghost town - is this like Bodie in the USA
