      suggestions for a drive thru

      Connecticut Aug 17, 2015 at 1:43 PM

      My husband and I will be heading to Martha's Vineyard for a wedding, arriving in NY on the 7th and spending the 9th-11th at Martha's Vineyard and then back to NYC by the 13th. We plan on driving from LGA to Boston and then down to the wedding, then back to NYC. We'd like to see Boston, but not spend more than a day and a half. We enjoy local food and customs as well as flea markets. Any suggestions for an interesting, not too touristy, itinerary?

      Coeur d'Alene Aug 7, 2015 at 7:44 PM

       

      Traveling to CdA 11 Sept. 15 thru 19 Sept, 2015.  Want to take St. Joe 6 hr river cruise, maybe go visit silver mine, do a little aerial sightseeing, etc.  We are not hikers - actually will have 72 year old Dad with us.  Can anyone recommend the best plane service for the aerial sightseeing?  Great (not dress up fancy) restaurants, any must sees?  Want to make the most of our trip and need some local input!  Will have rental car and don't mind 2-2 1/2 hour  to see anything cool!  Home base will be in CdA rental so we will not be overnighting anywhere other than CdA.  Please help me make this the greatest trip my Dad has ever been on!

      Thanks!

    • Ports of Entry into Mexico

      New Mexico 16 hours ago

      We are traveling by car from northern New Mexico to Kino Bay, Mexico taking I25 south through Lordsburg, NM. The 2 closest ports of entry to Lordsburg are Douglas or Naco, AZ. Does anyone know about these ports of entry? We would prefer not to go all the way to Nogales to enter as it adds miles to our trip. Thank you.

    • The Ride

      New York City 17 hours ago

      Anyone tried The Ride? It looks like lots of fun with a tour mixed with entertainment.

      For those that have tried it, is it fun? Appropriate for kids (the site says 6 and over and our younger one is 6)?

      Also, is it hard to get tickets? (with or without an explorer pass) If its something where you need to line up hours in advance, then not interested.

    • Alaskan Licence Plates

      Orlando Aug 25, 2015 at 8:17 PM

      Every holiday we play a game with our two boys to spot as many different US States licence plates while we drive around Orlando. This holiday is our best yet we have spotted 49 out of the 50 US States with only Alaska to go. We've tried everything to spot one to no avail. We only have 3 days left! Does anyone know where we could find one on a friends vehicle or a colleague you may know in the vicinity of Orlando. Any advice would be greatly appreciated and you'd make two (three!) boys very happy. Thanks in advance.

      Hello, I have been in Miami before, let's say I know a little bit.
      This time, I have a connecting flight in October, the layover is for 6 hours. My idea is get out of the airport, go to the beach, eat something, walk a little bit. Any suggestions for that? Any local restaurant I have to try?

Sounds like we can explore some of the beaches within walking distance of the ferry dock, but I'd also like the kids to see the cats at the LARC. Does anyone know whether there is shuttle service from the dock to Lana'i City?

      BLUES ZONE

      Chicago Aug 11, 2015 at 5:05 PM

      I've been in Chicago 14 years ago, I remember we went to a street where you could find many blues clubs. Once you enter on the 1st one you had to pay an entrance fee, then they gave you a wristlet which you could use to get into any of the blues clubs on the same street/area, as many clubs as you wanted. Now I'm going to visit the windy city again and I wonder if anyone knows which is the place/street/area I'm talking about. Is it still exists? Thanks for your help! I'd appreciate it very much

      Where to camp.

      Big Bear Lake Aug 5, 2015 at 6:24 PM

      anybody have campgrounds they love near Big bear lake? I know Serrano, but it seems more for RVs, and Pine Knot maybe OK, but it sounds too near the town, and also the slanted sites on the hill may an issue. I have 4 kids, so hiking inland is not an option at this point. We have 1 big tent and 1 car.
      i don't have to be on the lake, but it would be nice to be near some water. maybe there is another location near Big Bear, another Lake....
      I only live an hour away, so I could travel farther if needed.

    • Shoes for hiking

      Maui Aug 5, 2015 at 9:13 AM

      we go to Maui this September. We are trying to figure out what shoes would be best for some hikes we plan to do.

      The shoes we plan to bring are Brooks Running shoes, Keens H2 Newport Hiking Sandals, and flip flops

      The hikes we are planning are:

      Twin Falls: we plan to wear the Keens, as we will be walking thru water and plan to go into the water falls. It doesn't make much sense, to wear tennis shoes to take them off and put on flip flops.

      Waihee Ridge Trail: Here is where i am not certain. A lot of post saying Hiking boots are best on this trail for traction. we are not bring hiking boots during travel. It doesn't seem worth it for a 2 hour hike. So I am left with the tennis shoes or my keens. My keens probably have more traction, but the tennis shoe probably has more surrounding support.

    • Megabus stop

      by arranlee Online Now Dec 30, 2014 at 5:29 AM

      Hi,
      I'm thinking of stopping off in Omaha for the day to visit the zoo, old market and the Bob Kerrey bridge but if I did, I would need to get the 10pm Megabus to Chicago.
      I did a quick Google search and it seems that the Crossroads Mall where the Megabus stop is located is quiet at the best of times, let alone at 10pm, so I just wondered if I am likely to be able to find the Megabus stop ok assuming there is no one around as I will be taking a bus or taxi there? And if I should be ok there as a solo traveller at that time of night?

      Thanks,
      Arran

      3) Where can I meet young people?

      4) Because I don't want to buy a car for one month, is there any public transport system like city buses?

      Zoo - Zoo Penny Favor

      by my2kids Online Now Sep 18, 2005 at 1:03 PM

      Hello Omaha,

      My family and I stopped at the Henry Doorly Zoo a few years ago while on our way back from a medical trip in Utah for one of our special needs children.

      Our son with autism just started making and collecting zoo pennies this year, from the zoos he visits.

      I would love to get him a zoo penny from the Henry Doorly Zoo and wrap it up for him for Christmas.

      I'm not sure this zoo has the machine to make the pennies. But if they do and anyone is willing to make us one. I would gladly pay for the amount to have the penny done plus the shipping to send it to us here in North Dakota.

      Thanks so much,
